San Francisco, CA

Sysdig is looking for a dynamic Talent Acquisition Operations Lead / Manager. This person will be an ambassador for our candidate experience and the glue that ties together an international group of recruiters, sourcers and coordinators.

Sysdig is the cloud-native intelligence company, and we’re at the forefront of the container and microservices adoption in the enterprise. We’re the people who are making reliable, secure containers a reality for enterprises everywhere.

We're passionate about solving the most complex operational challenges that companies face when they transition to Kubernetes, Docker, and cloud-native architectures on a massive scale. We offer the best of both worlds: we're a well-funded startup ($121.5 million) with a 300+ enterprise customer base (300 and counting). And we're a great place to work too — we were awarded the 2019 Bay Area Best Places to Work award from San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal. Have we gotten your attention yet?

Sysdig was born from open source, so your work here will cross the divide between developer-led OSS and battle-tested commercial software at scale.
