Job Description

Are you a talented tech recruiter looking to bring your expertise to the climate fight? Are you ready to say “Heck Yeah!” instead of “So what?” when you think about the impact your work has on the world?
About Heirloom All across the world, from the azure pools of Turkey and Oman to the travertine terraces of Yellowstone, our planet quietly pulls carbon dioxide from the air and turns it to stone. For eons, Earth has relied on this process to balance its carbon cycle. What if it could be harnessed? What if we could do it faster, in larger quantities, and at a low enough cost to make it an effective tool in the fight against climate change? 
At Heirloom, we are turning that into reality. We use the natural carbon capture properties of abundant minerals to pull CO2 from the air, and store it permanently underground. We come to work every day to slow climate change, and are united behind a single, common goal - to remove 1 billion tons of CO2 from the sky by 2035, and to not stop before we get there.  
We bring together the precise recipe of science, technology, know-how, and strategy necessary to make low cost, high quality carbon removal a reality. If we’re successful, we will directly mitigate climate change, build a world we can proudly hand over to our children and grandchildren, and catalyze an industry that will rival the largest the world has ever seen. If you want to change the planet, come join us. 
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Heirloom is committed to diversity and building an equitable and inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds and experiences.  We believe wholeheartedly that building a diverse company is critical to Heirloom’s success.  We especially encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply, including women, people of color, LGBTQ+ people, veterans, and people with disabilities. 
The RoleThis is a mission driven role like no other - you will be building a diverse and talented team that helps reverse climate change.  Heirloom’s technology brings together a unique blend of chemical engineering, materials science, software, and industrial automation to build an economical and scalable carbon removal solution, and you will recruit exceptional talent across all those disciplines. The talent of our team will determine our success at solving this problem, so it is not hyperbole to say your work will make a real contribution to the fight against climate change.
About YouWhether you’re a solo recruiter doing everything for a small startup, or an IC on a team of tech recruiters, this much is clear: You will be data-driven and strategic in prioritizing the right sources for candidates, and you know how to run a clean, fast process with outstanding follow up once you find them. Hiring managers are never in the dark when you’re on the job and if you’re waiting more than 24 hours on feedback, you knock on doors (and knock them down if you have to). You understand that recruiting is storytelling and your ability to passionately share Heirloom’s vision and culture with candidates will help you close throughout the process - not just at offer time. 
Our PrinciplesRadical Honesty means we are open, transparent, and inclusive in everything we do. We aren't scared to challenge each other, but bring clear motives and our best intentions when we do.
Persistent Optimism means we carry an infinite amount of optimistic energy with us on our journey, constantly chipping away at what may seem insurmountable.
Maximize our learning rate means we're always in discovery mode.  Compounding knowledge is our key to victory - we continuously hone our crafts, seek the fastest paths to new learning, and are quick to absorb new knowledge.
