dbt Labs was founded in 2016 to empower analysts to create and disseminate organizational knowledge. Since then, we’ve grown to become one of the leading brands in the analytics industry. Our product, dbt, is used by thousands of companies. dbt Labs is a remote-first, values-driven company with a globally distributed team. You can learn more about our values here.

As our Director of Talent Acquisition, you will have the chance for huge impact, as you get to shape the culture and community of dbt Labs for our global team. This strategic yet operational leader will oversee our talent acquisition team, programs and strategic roadmap.

As a distributed company, we move incredibly fast and lean heavily on async work (reading and writing!). It is within this environment that you will be responsible for delivering on our mission to enable the growth and development of all our team members, specifically within leadership. You will build on our foundational operations and collaborate closely with both the business and our People Team CoE’s to identify opportunities, design solutions and quickly yet effectively execute. You’ll use data to guide your team’s work, and you’ll always be looking to improve our internal reporting systems. While owning many of our flagship recruiting programs, you’ll also be responsible for developing and empowering your team in their individual and collective success.

At the end of the day, you’ll achieve success by balancing the needs of both our people and the business and bringing optimized thinking into day-to-day operations. You’ll lead from a curious and first principles mentality to push the needle on our culture and how we operate and recruit. While the below is a small snapshot of the broad range of work scoped into this varied and challenging (in a fun way!) role; we are looking for someone who leverages differences of their team, brings their best, and pushes the pace of our work in a smooth and values-aligned manner.
