At Linear, we are creating software for teams who want to build high quality products. Quality of software is driven by both the talent of its creators and how they feel while they’re crafting it. Teams that have the time and energy to be focused on the work itself can build magical, high quality software. Our tools and practices need to do their best to nurture this, not take it away. To bring back the right focus, these are the foundational ideas Linear is built on - The Linear Method.

Our founders Tuomas, Karri, and Jori started this journey in 2019 and have designed, delivered and scaled software at some of the fastest growing tech companies in the world — Uber, Airbnb, and Coinbase.

In this role you will create and execute sourcing strategies targeting experts across US and EU timezones. You will partner closely with Founders to build pipelines of diverse leads, engage passive candidates with compelling messaging, and manage candidates through the interview process. As the second person to join the Talent team, you will work with the Founders and interviewers to build best practices and streamline hiring processes as needed to ensure we hit our recruiting goals and deliver a magical candidate experience.
