Job Description
Blizzard Entertainment is looking for a passionate and experienced technical recruiting manager with strong sourcing and account management skills to help lead a small team.

You will own recruiting strategy, identify and recommend process improvements, and partner with team members in the execution of these critical components of talent acquisition. You’ll be able to successfully manage, prioritize and close searches against a tight timeline while working closely with tech leaders to help influence Blizzard’s efforts towards attracting and hiring hard to find technical talent.

  • A minimum of 2+ years’ formally leading/managing a tech recruiting team while holding 5-10 requisitions
  • 7+ years of hands-on full cycle technical recruiting experience, preferably in-house at a high-tech or gaming company
  • Comfortable connecting with, and presenting to people of all levels
