Join us and contribute to the growth of a Canadian AI. leader!

The talent acquisition team plays a key part in Coveo’s dazzling growth. This is your chance to take full leadership of recruitment processes for our General & Administration teams based mainly in Quebec City but also Montreal. The key word here is "leadership": we expect a lot of creativity and ownership from you to develop effective and innovative strategies to fill our strategic corporate positions.

More precisely, you will:

  • Speak to the managers, directors and VPs of your departments to gather the requirements and collect important nuances that will allow you to differentiate THE right candidate
  • Write compelling job descriptions in both French and English for the Quebec City and Montreal markets
  • Conduct initial interviews with selected candidates, help them navigate through their interview process while giving them an outstanding candidate experience, and keep our ATS (Greenhouse) updated
  • Develop new innovative candidate attraction strategies with Catherine, our Talent Brand Manager, and with Marilou, our Campus recruitment expert. The best candidates are not always easy to engage with, hence requiring a personalised and human touch
  • Headhunt the best talent on LinkedIn, Jobillico and any other relevant platforms, using a personal approach that stands out
  • Keep your candidate pipelines clean and provide your hiring managers with proactive updates on the status of the roles you are working on together
  • Have time to work on some exciting side projects - learning about our tech or the latest talent acquisition best practices that we can implement. We always challenge the status quo at Coveo!

A mix of leadership, creativity and rigour

The talent acquisition team has and will continue to play a critical role in making Coveo a worldwide leader, admired for its tech and it’s culture. But it’s not easy to differentiate candidates in a competitive talent market: you’ll need to help identify top talent that stand out due to their curiosity and willingness to do the best work. You’ll also need to see the potential of candidates and then convince them to join us on our journey. Are you a “techie” with drive and great people skills?

This is what we are looking for:

  • You have a bachelor’s degree in administration, human relations or any other relevant diploma
  • You have 1-2 years of talent acquisition experience, ideally “in-house”
  • You are knowledgeable about Coveo and our products - you are convinced of the value we bring and act as a brand ambassador to convey that message to candidates
  • You are bilingual; English & French speaking and written (your prospects and hiring managers are not always bilingual)
  • You are organised with an eye for detail - this role requires a lot of follow up and managing competing priorities
  • You are comfortable prospecting for candidates online and you have a knack for generating interest in the first inmail! - sales or customer service experience is a great asset here
  • You know how to use your emotional intelligence to identify your candidates, ask the right questions and create a unique experience
  • You have what is called the "growth mindset", you are not afraid to be challenged and to challenge others
  • You have a deep understanding of the business world and a heightened curiosity, besides you understand what we mean by "Quebec unicorn"!

Join the #CoveoLife!

This is not a "resume sorting" role as seen in many other companies. We give you the opportunity to make a difference and to concretely see your impact both on a daily basis and on the future of an international company based in Quebec. First and foremost, we are looking for an “outstanding” candidate who has fire in their eyes and who fundamentally believes that a business is nothing without the people who run it.

Is it a fit? Send us your CV and convince us that you are THE candidate we shouldn't be without!
