Islands is a technology company that builds economic infrastructure for the community economy. Communities of all sizes can use our software to manage digital assets and pay people and projects globally. Our vision is to create a new community platform that is open and accessible.

We are funded by major VC funds and individuals such as founders and executives from Reddit, Solana, Polygon, Coinbase, Twitch, Shopify, Notion and more.

Here’s what your day to day looks like:
  • Partner with leadership and team leads on all aspects of hiring, onboarding, and retention
  • Maintain accountability for recruiting goals in line with industry benchmarks
  • Lead inclusion, diversity, and culture initiatives that evolve with our needs

We’re looking for someone who:

  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills
  • Experience in startup recruiting and leveraging inside networks
  • Experience building inclusive and diverse organizations
  • Experience managing the entire candidate lifecycle, from talent mapping, research, sourcing, interviewing, to closing and retention
  • Proven track record of identifying and closing difficult to attract candidates
  • Ability to think strategically and proactively about company culture 

Bonus if you have this:

  • Experience applying a data-driven approach to people operations
  • Experience with HRIS tools like Gusto, Namely, etc. 

While a degree in CS is nice, you don't need one--or any other kind of degree--to work here. Some of the best people come from non-traditional backgrounds and disciplines, and we’re dedicated to supporting our employees’ education and growth.
Islands is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to pursuing and hiring a diverse workforce. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it makes our business better. If you think you're a good match for our vision and values, we'd love to hear from you!
We're honored you're considering joining us.
