Fullstack Academy?is the premier software development school located in New York City and Chicago. Y Combinator-backed, our school has garnered the attention of Forbes, TechCrunch, and Business Insider, among others. The reputation of our school is built on the professional success of each and every one of our students. Students have gone on to promising careers at top-tier companies, like Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Goldman Sachs. In late 2018, New York City selected Fullstack to build a world-class cybersecurity bootcamp, as part of its $100M Cyber NYC initiative. The bootcamp will be called the Fullstack Cyber Bootcamp, and will open its doors in June 2019. You can read more about the cyber bootcamp on its website at and in some of the news coverage it has received. In April 2019, Fullstack Academy was acquired by Zovio, a public Ed Tech company, and will be significantly scaling its operations.

"Fullstack Academy has been a life-changing experience"?is something we hear often and the reason why we come to work everyday. We are looking for a Recruiter who is passionate about tech, education and helping to build the team training the next generation of software engineers.


As the Technical Recruiter you will own the full recruitment experience at Fullstack Academy and be an ambassador for our company brand and culture. Partnering with FSA?s business units you will be a subject matter expert in our product and programs and will engage and translate these elements into exciting opportunities for potential candidates. With deep technical knowledge, you will recruit candidates across all levels, end-to-end and think about ways to ?level up? our candidate experience from start to finish.

In this role, you will:

  • Develop a deep understanding of Fullstack?s culture, products, strategic direction, and competitors, and use this knowledge to craft compelling messaging to potential candidates

  • Proactively source technical candidates through a variety of methods, building a consistent pipeline of talent for high priority and hard-to-fill positions

  • Curate an exceptional candidate experience at each point of contact (initial outreach, phone screen, on-site, etc.)
  • Proactively source candidates through a variety of methods, building a consistent pipeline of technical talent for high priority and hard-to-fill positions
  • Identify talent market-facing collateral (blogs, social media, etc.) to engage and grow the overall technical talent pipeline for Fullstack Academy roles

  • 3 - 4 years of experience in recruiting in a technology and/or education organization
  • Excellent communication skills and the ability to craft compelling messages for a diverse set of technical audiences (sometimes on the fly by synthesizing candidate work history and aspirations)
  • Experience in successfully sourcing technical candidates, particularly for hard-to-find candidates for hard-to-fill roles
  • A candidate experience mindset and the desire to innovate in how we recruit
