The Technical Sourcer works closely with our Recruiters and hiring managers to develop strategies to find candidates for our GPS Organization (Global Product and SWE).

We conceive practical and creative ways to surface talent, and we invest a lot of time activating passive candidates through a highly engaged approach.
