Join our lovely team as a technical recruiter.

We hire people who care about technology and train them to become great technical recruiters.

Recruiting done right

Technology at the heart

We know what it takes to build great software. With first-hand industry experience, we understand what a talented and diverse team can accomplish.

If you love technology and are curious about what a people focused role is like, apply now. If you have that technical grounding and have recruited before - we’d be especially keen to chat.

Why we love it

Fiona Chan
Technical Recruiter since 2015

“Although I’m not coding on a daily basis, I’ve really enjoyed meeting developers and chatting with them. Having that technical background definitely helps me understand what developers and companies are after. I’ve also spent a lot of time giving people general advice on job searching and resume writing. They really appreciate that.”

Combining our strengths

What you can expect

From day one you’ll have clients who need your help hiring software engineers. They’re companies who are making their own software products that care about building high performing teams. You’ll be paired up with another Lookahead recruiter who will help show you the ropes.

You’ll use the knowledge you gained working in software teams to spot talented developers. The obvious ones, and the not-so-obvious. You’ll visit potential new clients and figure out if they’re the sort of place developers would be able to do great work. You’ll get involved in technical communities and contribute in a meaningful way. That means going to plenty of meetups and conferences so you’re always able to stay up to date with technology. :)

You’ll join a supportive, diverse team who love to share their knowledge. We love getting to know each other over a lunch, impromptu gelato run, our quarterly get togethers and annual Team Hang.

What we’re expecting

A genuine interest in technology – it’s hard to fake caring. We’re all involved in the web development community and are passionate about giving back.

A long term focus – recruiting can be simple but it sure isn’t easy. Give us a year to show you the ropes. It’s up to us to keep it interesting every year after that. :)

Ability to write good well – recruiters are professional communicators. We need folks who are clear communicators in writing, in person and over the phone.

A sense of humour – we take work seriously, but not ourselves.

Your benefits

Four day weeks. When Covid first hit, we stopped working Fridays. Now we have found we get just as much done working Monday to Thursday.

$80k to $100k + super for 4 days, depending on your experience. There’s a generous commission scheme and profit share to go on top of that.

Up to 5 weeks annual leave after your first year, then up to 6 weeks after your second year. We’re quite flexible on remote & in office time.

We default to full-time, but would consider part-time roles, job share arrangements and encourage return to work parents to apply.

You’ll be supplied with a high end computer, a tablet, and your mobile phone is covered. We never skimp on technology. We don’t skimp on training or conferences either. No one joins a company for their team building events but ours are pretty neat.

We’re proud to be a Pledge 1% member. We pledge 1% of our profits, time and product. There’s volunteer leave to spend on a cause of your choosng.

Sounds like a match? Apply now.

Technical recruiting is a wonderfully rewarding career for the right people. Reach out if you’re even just a tiny bit curious.
