Remote job description

Untapped is on a mission to make the world more equitable by broadening access to transformative careers. Untapped is the new way to hire diverse teams with confidence and gain full transparency into the diversity of applicants in your hiring process. Startups to Fortune 500 companies are using Untapped to understand the diversity of their recruiting pipeline, source underrepresented talent, run engaging virtual events, enhance employer brand, and measure the ROI of their diversity recruiting initiatives.

Our team is composed of people from every background and experience and over 50% of us are from historically underrepresented backgrounds. We're a passionate team of learners and doers with a bias for action. We encourage each other to remember and exercise our individual "why" in service to our mission.

We strongly encourage you to apply if you're interested in this role on our team - even if you don't meet all the requirements. Candidates, especially those from historically underrepresented backgrounds, often don't apply for roles if they don't feel they meet all the criteria. Just know your resume isn't getting lost in space, our team is committed to reviewing every application.

Join us in our mission to make the world more equitable by broadening access to transformative careers!

The Role

Success for Untapped means providing a delightful experience to customers (employers) and job seekers on the platform. We have two teams who manage these experiences: Recruiter Experience and Candidate Experience. As a full stack engineer on the Candidate Experience pod, you'll work closely with cross-functional stakeholders across design, product, engineering, customer success and marketing.

You will be responsible for executing on our candidate experience strategies. This means resolving bugs that interfere with the job-seeking process and building out new features that save candidates time and better equip them for their next roles. For candidate-side work, this includes scrappier, faster-moving projects with more experiments and MVPs. This will also include contributing to department-level efforts to continually improve performance, quality and test coverage as well as technical SEO.

  • You put customers first, taking a humanistic approach to ensuring all engineering requirements are met in the best way possible for our users
