About Watershed

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 Sourcer within the tech recruiting team, you will help shape the future of Watershed by identifying and attracting the best engineering talent. The quality of our team will determine our success, and you will be a critical piece to ensuring we can connect and engage with exceptional candidates across the industry. We value great sourcing and story telling, attention to detail, and critical thinking that embeds themselves with the hiring teams.
You will work closely with recruiters, hiring managers, founders, and team members to define, execute, and inform our sourcing strategy. Your focus will be primarily on passive software engineering talent, especially expanding our reach with underrepresented groups, but you will be expected to flex into supporting other teams as needed. We need you to be excited to passionately share Watershed's story, vision, culture, and technology.
You might be a fit if you:
  • Have 2+ years of technical sourcing/recruiting experience
  • Have demonstrated previous success in sourcing software engineers, preferably in a high-growth software company
  • Have experience hiring in organizations focused on creating a diverse and inclusive team, and are familiar with URG sourcing strategies
  • Are able to create innovative sourcing strategies and measure their impact with data
  • Are a consultative partner and collaborator across all levels of the organization
  • Have strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Have 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 June 2021, 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 open to vaccinated team members with regular testing, and we’ll continue to pay close attention to 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 vary 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.
