Watershed is a software platform for running a world-class climate program. We measure our success in the carbon reduction achievements of our customers. We are looking for team members who love product-building, want to work hard at a mission-oriented startup, and will collaborate with us in shaping the culture of a growing team.

We have offices in San Francisco and London and remote team members across the US and Europe. We hope that you'll be interested in joining us!

The role

As an early Recruiter, you will help shape the future of the Watershed by sourcing and attracting the best candidates in the industry. The talent of our team will determine our success, and you will be the focal point making sure we build an amazing team. We need you to passionately share Watershed's story, vision, culture and technology that will make candidates say “Where do I sign?” while making them feel like they’re the only one you’re talking to.

We value great sourcing and story telling, attention to detail, and critical thinking. You should be someone who embeds themselves with teams and is a strong consultative recruiter that holds the candidate experience sacred.

You might be a fit if you:

  • Have 3+ years of recruiting experience, preferably with some experience in high-growth companies
  • Prefer to have technical software recruiting experience, specifically recruiting for engineering, product and/or data science roles. 
  • Have great selling and closing skills 
  • Have the ability to repeatedly build pipelines from scratch to find the absolute best people for the team
  • Are able to manage the candidate process and act as a candidate advocate
  • Have great customer service and communication skills
  • Have good systems experience (Greenhouse, Google suite, etc)


What's your approach to remote work?

Watershed is hiring team members on all US and EU time zones, and we're committed to growing a long-term distributed team. We have hub offices in San Francisco and London, and remote team members from Oregon to New Jersey to Ireland.  There may be certain jobs that need to be in San Francisco / London or certain locations, and will be specifically noted in the job description or in conversations.

What are Watershed's return-to-office plans?

We reopened our San Francisco office in mid-June, and treasure the energy and collaboration that comes from working together in person. We're particularly lucky to have a great rooftop outdoor space, where we can gather for lunch, one-on-one's, and the occasional outdoor whiteboarding session. We're also investing deeply to support remote as a first-class hub, with regular Zoom social times, an emphasis on transparency and written artifacts, and periodic offsites to gather everybody in person.

We're a COVID-cautious company. The office is currently open to vaccinated team members, and we'll pay close attention to vaccination and case rates to ensure it's safe for everybody.

Do I need X years of experience, climate experience, etc.?

No, Watershed is hiring team members with a broad range of prior experience, and we'd love to talk with you regardless of yours. We prioritize mentorship on the job.  There maybe certain jobs that will need X years of experience, and will be specifically noted in the job description.

What's the interview process like?

It starts the same for every candidate: getting to know the team members through 1 to 2 conversations about Watershed, your experience, and your interests. Next steps can very by role, but usual next steps are a skill or experience screen (e.g. a coding interview for an engineer, a portfolio review for a designer, deeper experience call for other roles) which leads to a (usually virtual) onsite interview after that if the screens go well. We prioritize transparency and lack of surprise throughout the process.
