Sysdig, the leading monitoring, visibility, and security company for modern enterprises that use containers and container orchestration, is looking for a Senior Technical Recruiter to help build the team with top notch talent during this very exciting growth period for the company.

The Senior Recruiter will be fearless in the pursuit of great candidates and will work closely with internal teams to ensure a positive candidate experience.

The Senior Technical Recruiter is the “master recruitment orchestrator”, knowing when to pull the right resources at the right time and ensuring that each candidate has a terrific experience engaging with Sysdig.


Tech passion – you follow tech trends/blogs and have a genuine curiosity for technology. You enjoy (and look forward to) connecting with engineers as you see each conversation as a learning opportunity. You geek out (we do, too!).

Tech understanding – you know that your top tech folks aren’t necessarily going to be on LinkedIn. You know how, when, and where to find the best technical people; better yet, when you find them, they want to engage with you. And you love it.

Relationship Navigator – in addition to scouting and developing relationships with tech talent, we are seeking someone who will be a true partner to our hiring managers and other stakeholders. The ideal person understands that the role kick-off meeting isn’t a meeting to regurgitate the job description, but an opportunity to develop a relationship with the hiring team and a strategic plan of attack. Some of the roles we hire might not have benchmarks, so the ability to grasp technically complex roles and partner with the hiring team is critical.

  • Ability to manage processes from start to finish

  • Business maturity and demonstrated ability to influence stakeholders and establish collaborative partnerships
