Launched from the sunny sands of Long Beach, California in 2014, we’ve grown to over 350 (and counting!)

If you’re looking for an encouraging, innovative, and passionate team, Zwift is just that. We like bikes. We like running. We also like local ice cream shops and game nights.

That being said, we don't want you to be intimidated by the former Olympians, pro cyclists, and other amazing athletes that work here; our team consists of people from all walks of life. Even if you're at the very beginning of your fitness journey, there is a place for you here! Who knows, you may surprise yourself and complete your first triathlon if you hang out with us for too long.

Job Description

Seniority Level: Mid-Senior

Location of Position: London, UK or Remote UK

About the role and about You:

We are on an exciting and accelerated journey to making More People, More Active, More Often and looking for a Contract Recruiter (known as a Talent Engagement Partner at Zwift) to focus on hiring talented individuals who will play an integral part of supporting that mission.

You will own, drive, and deliver the candidate lifecycle for our Connected Products (Hardware) and Supply Chain teams at Zwift. You are not a transactional recruiter, but someone who looks at talent engagement through a consultative lens. You will partner with the different parts of the organization and will have exceptional analytical skills, high EQ, open communication skills, and extensive experience in hiring different candidate profiles. You are someone who thrives in fast-paced, ambiguous environments and likes to optimize the process through constant iteration as well as building from the ground up. You are a self-starter, a team player, and need little direction to be successful.

While every single team here is outstanding (we guarantee, or your money back), you will be joining a fun, diverse team that’s highly motivated to succeed together. We are passionate about partnering with our teams, hiring the right talent, and providing an exceptional candidate experience the whole way through.

If I just described you and this opportunity sounds fulfilling to you, we want to hear from you!
