The Elevator Pitch: Why will you enjoy this new opportunity?

If you are passionate about being at the forefront of the enterprise software space and are excited to work alongside cloud industry thought leaders & trailblazers, then this role is for you.

As a Senior Technical Recruiter, you will play an integral part in helping to build out the R&D team for VMware’s Cloud Infrastructure Business Group (CIBG).

VMware has embarked on the next exciting phase of our journey as a company - to deliver a multi-cloud platform for all applications.

We have an opportunity to build something truly special: the industry’s first multi-cloud IaaS/CaaS. Just as VMware innovated to deliver breakthrough customer value, first with server virtualization, then with the SDDC, now we have the opportunity to do it again with a true multi-cloud IaaS/CaaS.

  • We have aggressive growth plans across the CIBG, and we are looking to fill numerous openings that include but are not limited to Software Engineers, Product Managers, and R&D Leadership.

  • Our roles can be very challenging because we operate in an emerging domain where the talent we target can be niche, scarce, highly sought-after, and open source community centric.

  • You will be responsible for advising and partnering with our business group R&D leaders to recruit and build high performing, diverse & inclusive teams.

What type of work will you be doing? What assignments, requirements, or skills will you be performing on a regular basis?

  • Full cycle technical recruitment: Requisition intake, passive candidate generation/sourcing, candidate screening, interview facilitation, candidate & stakeholder management, and offer negotiations/closing candidates.

  • Leverage market data and insights to help advise the business into making strategic hiring decisions.

  • Partner with extended TA Leadership and Operations to execute on TA related projects, programs, and initiatives.

Success in the Role: What are the performance goals over the first 6-12 months you will work toward completing?

  • You will have a solid grasp of VMware and the business group’s goals & objectives, and how the Cloud Infrastructure Business Group fits into the bigger VMware story.

  • You will have a broad understanding of VMware’s business unit landscape and product portfolio, and a more thorough understanding of the landscape and product portfolio for the CIBG.

  • You will be aware of VMware’s competitors in the Cloud Infrastructure space and have the ability to articulate a value proposition that positions VMware against the competition.

  • You will be able to consistently generate qualified candidate pipelines and meet your hiring targets

  • You will provide an efficient and exceptional experience for both candidates and hiring managers.

  • You will build rapport and trust with hiring managers and support their adherence to recruiting best practices.

  • You will participate in the creation, implementation, and/or maintenance of talent acquisition projects and programs.

What is the leadership like for this role? What is the structure and culture of the team like?

  • You will report directly to the Senior Manager of Talent Acquisition for the CIBG.

  • The immediate team supporting CIBG consists of 6 Recruiters, but you will work closely with and will leverage the expertise and experience of a team of 20+ including sourcing recruiters and coordinators.

  • We strive to foster a culture of diversity, equity & inclusion, kindness, learning, and empathy.
