We’re looking for a Talent Acquisition Lead Technology to help us build on our incredible momentum, our diverse, engaged workforce, and our purpose to make sure every piece of clothing produced is worn. 

About this role

The Talent Acquisition function has grown over the last 12 months and we are not slowing down. In order to keep up with the exponential tech-enabled growth, we’ve invested heavily into our technology work-streams and a main focus of this is the attraction of more tech talent.

Working with our Head of Talent Acquisition, you will be responsible for driving hands-on- strategic level attraction exercises for a wide range of in-house tech solutions. You’ll also manage and guide a team of internal TA partners whilst playing a pivotal role in educating the business on technology talent trends. 

About Otrium

Founded and headquartered in Amsterdam, we’re a purpose-led business – we believe all clothing should be worn.

Right now, lots of fashion stays unsold. For the resources that went in and for the people who miss out, it’s such a shame. We’re here to fix this. We are an online fashion outlet marketplace and we tech-enable designer brands to find an owner for every item they produce.

We give brands an online outlet channel and digital tools to smartly connect dynamically-priced end-of-season collections with fashion-lovers. Then we give them the data so they can reproduce most-wanted items.

Our app re-imagines outlet shopping helping customers easily find reduced-price gems. We give end-of-season fashion a new start, which is smarter for the wardrobe, smarter for the wallet and smarter for the industry.
