PR and Events Manager

Job description

We are changing the landscape of recruitment technology. Our software helps connect qualified talent with decision makers by assessing an applicant's skill set, not his/her resume. Our technology speaks for itself; we've raised $15m recently in a Series B funding round. To enable further growth across the board, we are looking for a PR + Events Manager to join our NYC team's journey.

 

WHO ARE WE?

Harver helps global, industry-leading companies build better, more diverse & inclusive teams. Our software uses psychologically-backed data to empower decision-makers in the hiring process. Check out our custom solutions for our partners Netflix and Heineken.

 

YOUR NEW OFFICE...

You spend more time at work than anywhere else during the week, so why not enjoy it? Walking into our office, you'll be greeted by Manhattan's best views of the East and Hudson Rivers and a carefully curated Spotify playlist. As a tribute to our headquarters and constant reminder of where our technology was born -- we've dressed an entire wall from ceiling to floor in a larger than life-size picture of our favorite canal in Amsterdam.
