Who We Are
 
Nylas was founded in 2013 and has raised over $175M to date from Tiger Global, 8VC, Spark Capital, Slack, and more; as well as individual investors including Patrick Collison, Co-Founder and CEO of Stripe, John Collison, President and Co-Founder of Stripe, Sebastian Siemiatkowski, CEO of Klarna, and Tony Fadell. Developers around the world use Nylas to quickly and securely build email, scheduling, and work automation features into their applications.

Our Work Philosophy
 
Nylas is also big believers in the safety and well-being of our employees and society, which is why we are onboarding all new Nylanauts remotely during this global pandemic until there is a vaccine and it is safe for humans to resume their pre-COVID lifestyles.
 
AND once COVID-19 pandemic eventually comes to an end, we will continue to embrace Remote First philosophy, with a minor twist: Remote First, Office Second. That's right! It's about how you work, not where you work. Nylanauts can choose any workspace or environment that will result in more ideas, engagement, creativity, focus, collaboration, and productivity. It's true. They can go anywhere as long as they respect the working hours (time zones) of their team. Wherever motivates them; inspires them to be better versions of themselves. This means Nylanauts can work from the slopes of Missoula before traveling to the beaches of San Diego. Wonderful!
 
And if Nylanauts want to work from an office in one of our hubs (San Francisco, Denver, New York City, Toronto, and London), they can. Go ahead! The workspace is there to be utilized.
Why Remote First, Office Second? Because we not only believe in respecting individual working styles, disabilities, and personal schedules, but also ensuring everyone has a better work-life balance. The outcomes will always be more important than the physical location.
 
So, if you’re looking to join a fast-growing company with a beloved, daily-use product, and an authentic mission that puts people first, we want to meet you. Want to know more? Check us out on Comparably and Great Place to Work!

The Role:
Nylas is searching for a Recruiter to assist with our rapid growth across the US. This is a remarkable opportunity to build on an already strong People foundation in a culture that truly understands the strategic value of people. Reporting to our Recruiting Manager, this role will work closely with the Marketing organization.

You understand how to partner effectively with hiring teams to develop a strong recruiting culture. You leverage creative techniques to discover qualified candidates and have demonstrated success in converting passive leads to active candidates. You understand that no close is ever identical, and have numerous examples of going above and beyond to deeply connect with your candidates and ultimately bring them on board. You are someone who exudes gumption; loves ambiguity; challenges the status quo; and sees themselves as a builder.

What You'll Do

  • Be an Advocate. You will advocate for both candidates and hiring managers. While advocating for candidates, you will help them feel comfortable and excited, showing them the true Nylas way! While advocating for hiring managers, you will help them understand the process and hire quickly and effectively.
  • Be proactive. Don’t wait for others to tell you how to do things or what to do. You will find success in this role by pushing things forward, asking questions, and accomplishing tasks. Don’t ask for permission, ask for forgiveness!
  • Get Creative. Recruiting is competitive! It’s more important now than ever before to get creative and think outside the box to get candidates interested. Ask the right questions, and try things you’ve never done before. 
  • Be Bold. Recruiting can bring about uncomfortable conversations at times. Don’t be afraid to ask the big questions, and get the hard conversations out of the way, whether with candidates or hiring managers. 
  • Use Data. Use the data to discover what is and isn’t working. Being at a startup means we can change things quickly. Use the data to figure out where we can tweak things to make our processes better.
  • Be Flexible. Being at a startup means that things change quickly, and all the time. When this happens, don’t forget to go with the flow, and have fun with it - it’s all part of startup life.
  • Ask Questions. Question things! It’s our job to make Nylas better with awesome people. Don’t be afraid to question hiring managers, or processes. What could we be doing better?
  • Be Accountable. We all make mistakes… we’re human! Own it, and let’s all move on.

What You'll Bring

  • You have 3+ years of recruiting experience in the US (startup experience is a major plus!)
  • You are self-motivated and driven; you look for solutions and impact, without being asked twice
  • You are curious to dig deeper beyond the surface level of a job profile researching market trends, domain technology, and seek out information to have a solid understanding of the business. 
  • You are motivated for feedback, and want to grow and develop in your career
  • You have the ability to combine business acumen with strong influencing skills to advise and coach hiring partners
  • You have a proven track record of success in building strong partnerships with G&A teams and stakeholders

An Insider's view of Nylas

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Chaotic schedules and intense workloads come with the territory of a startup, but at Nylas "healthy work-life balance" is more than a catchy buzz phrase. After 6 months, it's mandatory that employees take 2 weeks off. On top of unlimited PTO, we also have 14 paid company holidays. Overall, I'd say work-life balance at Nylas is hard to beat!

Natasha

People Operations Coordinator

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Customer Success is a collaborative, cross-functional role at any organization. At Nylas, I've had the opportunity and pleasure to collaborate with Product, Marketing, Onboarding and Support. There's always a challenge to take the lead on, and something new to learn from your colleagues with every opportunity

Angie

Customer Success Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

Nylas has introduced me to large scale distributed systems and supported my career aspirations by allowing me to pursue a career on the sales side despite being hired and working as an engineer. We have hired experts across the entire organization that I learn from every day, the easy way.

Jonny

Senior Sales Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

My vision is to transform the analog nature of communication to actionable, automated workflows, and grow our company to be the best we can be by hiring the best employees.

David

Sr. VP of Engineering

What are some social events your company does?

Nylas is a remote-first, distributed company, so a lot of our social events take place virtually. We have yoga practice on Mondays, and Book Club on Wednesdays. On Fridays we mix it up with happy hours: : we'll have a live performance, chat via avatars in a Gather.town space, or watch a nerdy show together at the e(N)dweek Nerdout!
