    Team Building Partner

    “One thing that’s been clear to me over the past year is how much building the right team has helped make some great things happen at Animoto. You’ve taught me a lot about good hiring over the past year. Raleigh, Dave, Jill, and Naomi have been incredible finds. They are rock stars that I’m so glad to get to work with. I’m so glad to have built this team with your help."

  • Clients Say

    "Hito has been a fantastic business partner for Animoto, accelerating our time to hire as well as streamlining our interview process. We've been able to hire top engineering and marketing talent with their help. They bring not only deep recruiting instincts but also a broader view of culture and retention to our Company's people services group." - VP of Finance

They can source and assess, but I also trust them to work with hiring managers to understand requirements, collaborate, and to help throughout the interview process.

    Bandwidth and Expertise 

    The Foundation

    GROWTH SPURT: The Foundation needed to to build a new digital division. This included several roles the team was not familiar with and too many roles for their recruiting capacity to handle. The Foundation didn't need Recruiting headcount beyond this push. Futhermore, past hiring (as with most non-profits) was slow, inconsistent, and driven by referrals and community members. While mission match was key, technical skill match was essential.

     

    The Foundation was already stretched thin, and too busy for training. In the course of filling roles, Hito Labs intrduced a simple Hiring Plan format and debreif practice that was sused across the organiztion. Hito Labs' senior level HR practioners assisted hiring managers to define the scope of their role and team, and guided interview teams with unbiased and efficient assessment and decision making.

     

    hired over 30 talented full time employees, many who have already been promoted and leading groups. They introduced a including a new digital product and technical leadership. and niche roles such as process to understand diverse roles

    The Starting-Up

    Recruiter Supplement - Animoto

    NO RECRUITER YET!

     

    Catalate needed a senior hire with unique, let's say 'unicorn' experience

    So and so didnt have HR or a Recruiter

     

    Animoto did not always needs a full time recruiter. Hito Labs helped from time to time on targeted hires.

    We understood the team, the value prob and buisiness goals, and were able to pop in to hires.

    Consistency

    When there was enough growth, we helped find, hire an full time recruiter.

  • Technical Recruiter

    We’re a small and mighty remote recruiting company. We’re different than most because we care a lot about the candidate experience, improving the hiring process and partnering with companies that share our values. We’re looking for someone who understands the entire recruiting process and wants to lead a key part of our business.

     

    We have a highly collaborative way of working and give candid feedback frequently. We believe in autonomy and you’ll have full ownership to steer the ship. With that, you’ll also work closely with Hito Leadership to problem solve, strategize and calibrate on progress (pipeline, sourcing, etc). This open way of working isn’t for everyone but we’ve found it’s been a huge part of why we’ve been successful. Drop a line. We want to hear from you!

     

    WHAT YOUR DAY MIGHT LOOK LIKE

    • Project manager and point person for several clients

    • Build relationships with hiring managers, learn their preferences and earn their trust

    • Manage candidate pipeline, address bottlenecks in process and candidate flow

    • Iterate, change course and adapt strategies frequently

    • Collect and use data to calibrate across candidates

    • Phone screen candidates and share profiles with hiring managers

    • Schedule, prep and thoughtfully reject candidates

    • Track meeting notes and information in our systems

    • Build sourcing specs and review profiles

    WHAT WE’D LIKE TO SEE

    • Full cycle recruiting experience (preference if you’ve worked on technical roles)

    • Comfort managing multiple hiring managers across several clients

    • Proven bias to action. Learn from past interactions and apply to the next time/client. Connect the dots and work with initiative to enact change and keep projects moving in a positive direction.

    • Appreciation for the candidate experience.

    • Nuance, finesse and emotional intelligence.

    • You know where to explore with candidates to discover if they are a fit. You can identify the key skills needed for a diverse set of clients.

    • Initiative to identify gaps and inefficiencies and create solutions.

    • You thrive in a remote and scrappy environment, know when to speak up, communicate frequently, and get help / support.

    WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU

    • Work with and learn from a team that values, invests and cares about you

    • Flexible work hours and schedules; work when you need and want to

    • Ownership and autonomy over your work

    • Competitive pay

     

    ABOUT HITO LABS

    We come from the in-house world of HR and leading teams. We were frustrated by the broken contingency model of recruiting. What happened to truly understanding the team needs and representing the brand to candidates? We do things differently at Hito Labs, truly partnering with hiring managers and becoming a trusted expert on their team. We focus on helping to identify their needs, finding and vetting talent, creating a candidate experience, and getting the right people hired. Our whole team is remote. We value fulfilling work that provides the flexibility to spend time with family, kids and allow us to work from anywhere. We think the future is remote work and we love being part of this movement.
