  • Partner with your hiring managers: You appreciate the moment when a hiring manager learns how hard it is to attract top talent, and thrive off teaching people to fish. From structured interviewing to data-driven talent acquisition you are excited to share your experience and partner with the HoneyBook leadership team at all levels. 

  • Obsessed about culture and the candidate experience: At HoneyBook, people come first and our candidate experience isn’t any different. You are well-spoken on the phone and eloquent in emails.
