Our platform enables talented people around the world to connect with organizations demanding highly skilled talent for critical projects. Braintrust leverages blockchain technology to ensure incentives stay aligned across all network participants.

Our core beliefs:

  • While talent is equally distributed around the world opportunity is not. 

  • The old models of how people work are dull, outdated and in urgent need of reinvention.

We’re founded by 3 successful serial entrepreneurs:  Adam Jackson, Gabriel Luna-Ostaseski and Brian Flynn. You can read more about us here:

About the Role:

As Professional Technical Recruiter your primary role will be to help source, recruit and onboard talent to the Braintrust Talent platform as clients on the marketplace post new roles that are not immediately matched with existing talent on Braintrust.

A successful candidate in this role will be able to quickly and efficiently source high quality talent from around the world, screen talent, and help them create a Braintrust account and bid on new client projects in a freelance/contract capacity. This role is critical to the organization because one of Braintrust’s core value propositions to clients is being matched with vetted, high-quality talent in a matter of hours, not weeks. The right candidate is comfortable with both client-facing and talent-facing conversations.


  • Meet with clients, gather their needs, and develop a thorough Job Description.

  • Become immersed in the existing Braintrust talent pool; identify areas of density and gaps.

  • As new jobs are posted to Braintrust, proactively identify which jobs may not be filled quickly, and proactively recruit high quality talent that may be a good fit for these roles.

    • There are both internal and external levers that a Technical Recruiter may pull to source talent.  The right candidate is comfortable with expanding processes around leveraging our internal network.  

  • Accurately describe Braintrust and its value propositions to the talent while also letting them understand that the role is for a client, not Braintrust itself.

  • Screen applicants (preferred: video conferencing interviews) to identify their core value-add to the client and ensure culture/skills match.

  • Shepard new talent through the profile completion and application process to specific roles posted on Braintrust.

  • Keep up to date reports of where all applicants are in the process.


  • 2-4+ years of experience recruiting software product development talent for contract positions globally.

  • Intimate understanding and reputation with the leading talent forums/boards.

  • Basic understanding of various technical skillsets.

  • Clear communicator, organized, quick and efficient, hard-working, personable.

  • Process-oriented, self-starter who can identify and fill technical recruiting gaps.

  • Identified process for externally sourcing candidates through various channels.

  • Sharp-thinker that is willing to learn about leveraging an existing network of talent. 

  • Operations and Sales background a plus!

The right experience:

  • You have experience sourcing technical software developers, Product Managers, UI/UX Designers, Project Manager, IT Specialists, and DevOps personnel. 
    • BONUS:  Experience sourcing contractors, as opposed to Full Time Employees
  • You've worked with a recruitment firm, identifying and "promoting" talent to clients.
  • You're comfortable interacting with both clients and talent.

You’re the right fit for this role if:

  • Reading through our core values (below) resonates with and inspires you!

  • You are highly motivated to join a tight-knit team that has the ability to “do whatever it takes” to build something remarkable.

  • You’re always thinking outside of your role, prioritizing the larger picture and thinking about what is next.

  • You thrive in small teams and wearing many hats; open-ended challenges are exciting, not daunting

Our Core Values:

EVERYONE IS AN OWNER - The collective “we” — talent, employers, and the Braintrust team — all act like owners because we are all owners.
