Parkade's mission is to reshape cities and combat climate change by creating a world with far less parking. We build software that corporate buildings and apartment complexes use to improve parking utilization, revenue, enforcement and tenant experience at their properties. These features allow them to get by with less parking.

We're already transforming parking at hundreds of buildings around the world. We're nowready to get Parkade's into every apartment, condo and office building, and we just raised a seed round from some of Silicon Valley's most respected investors to make that dream a reality. To do that, we need you.

We're looking for entrepreneurial recruiter to be the first HR/recruiting hire at Parkade. We'll be growing the team from six to 12-15 by the end of the year, and we need a recruiter to help us source, close and onboard those crucial early hires. You'll partner closely with our founders, two of Lyft and Getaround's first employees, and you'll create much of our initial HR, recruiting and hiring processes while directly helping to hire our early team.

Depending on experience and performance, this role could transition into a head of talent.
