Job Overview: At Coupang, our technical recruiting professionals are meta technical engineers at the quantum level. Tech Sourcing is the art and science of engendering the art and science of innovation and intelligence. As a Talent Acquisition professional at Coupang you are a creative force, not an administrative function.

Key Responsibilities: The successful candidate will love to iterate on process. They will cherish even the most incremental of improvements. They will be as much a gate as they are a door. Never compromising team fit, retention or quality of hire for a quick sale. They will find inspiration and satisfaction in the important work they do as a talent advisor. They put their life above their livelihood (and would never counsel another to do otherwise). The ideal candidate is a scientist in the chemistry of job satisfaction. They like nothing better than to experiment with the subtle but powerful factors impacting Coupang’s talent magnetism in markets such as Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Research Science, Data Engineering and Software Engineering.

Innovation is the key. You will only be limited by your creativity. No idea is a bad idea when it comes to sourcing talent for Coupang.
