Recruiting & People Operations Lead

Job description

Sunroom is reinventing leasing to empower renters. 

We're a venture-backed tech startup, headquartered in downtown Austin, that's dramatically improving the home and apartment search process. We believe that the existing tools renters use, like Zillow, are just scratching the surface. We've created a platform that enables renters to schedule showings on the fly and apply to properties inside our app. Sunroom was started by the Favor founders Ben & Zac.


We are seeking an exceptionally bright and self-motivated individual for our Recruiting and People Operations position. You will be partnering with the leadership team to scale our recruiting and onboarding efforts. This role will be the first full time recruiting and people operations role, so you'll be able to make a huge impact on the company.

  • You'll become the point contact for general HR questions on a variety of topics including benefits, scheduling, policy, and compensation.
    Skills we're looking for:
  • You are outgoing and understand people. You enjoy asking deep probing questions, to learn about candidates and find the best talent. You love working with people. You are collaborative, upbeat, and optimistic.
  • You are a quick learner who is proficient with online tools and operations. 

  • Hyper-organized with keen attention to detail; you have a knack for juggling multiple tasks without breaking a sweat.
