Who You Are

  • Hands-on recruiting experience: you have 1–3 years of recruiting experience, generally in-house at (or working closely with) startups

What It Means for Your Career

  • Learn something new every day. We have the privilege of working with many different companies in parallel, in different industries and at different stages of development. You will learn continuously from all of those experiences.
  • Cultivate a personal network. As part of your work, you’ll meet hundreds of exceptional people every year and build real relationships; with founders, with candidates, and with peers in the ecosystem.
  • Master the craft of recruiting. At FirstMark, you’ll not only become a master of how to be a great recruiter–you’ll also develop a strategic understanding of how to build teams.
