Principal Recruiter, Executive Search

  • Remote, United States
  • Full-time


Eventbrite’s goal of building the marketplace for live experiences relies on our foundation of world-class talent and unbeatable company culture. Hiring top talent in some of the most competitive markets globally is no easy task, but we have a creative and dedicated team who has helped Eventbrite scale to over 700 Britelings in 10 countries over the past 10 years.  We are looking for an experienced Recruiter to join the Executive Search team we are building. You will be a trusted talent advisor to Eventbrite’s C-suite executives and their leadership teams as you manage the entire executive search process, from developing search strategies and generating pipeline to offer acceptance. You will play an instrumental role in bringing Eventbrite’s new Executive Search structure and processes to life while hiring leaders who will lead Eventbrite through the next phase of our company growth strategy. 


Eventbrite Talent Acquisition strives to attract, source, and hire top talent, who in turn foster a diverse workplace and have rewarding careers. Our values are deeply rooted in our people first culture and creating delightful candidate and hiring manager experiences. We believe people are our greatest asset and the talent we attract drives the success of Eventbrite.   Our Talent Acquisition team is tight-knit, quick-moving, and fun-loving. We believe recruiting should be a company-wide effort and that hiring should be based on market intelligence, relationships and data/insights, not transactions. Each member of our team is invested in telling our company’s story, building our brand, and establishing new processes that challenge the traditional and often dated methods of recruiting.  


As a Principal Recruiter, Executive Search, you will own the entire hiring lifecycle across a variety of functional disciplines. You will be responsible for defining and executing a clear talent acquisition strategy, ensuring a diverse slate of leadership candidates. You will cultivate relationships with potential sources and ensure high touch, high engagement with all candidates from networking conversations to assessment all the way through to onboarding. You will partner with C-suite executives and their leadership teams, as well as other cross-functional stakeholders (including Finance, HR Business Partners, and Total Rewards) advising on how to identify, attract, engage, and assess leadership talent for Eventbrite. You are open to innovating your approach to selecting and hiring the future leaders who will take Eventbrite to the next phase in the company’s growth journey.  We’re looking for someone who is committed to consistently raising the bar for our Talent Acquisition team. As the most tenured individual contributor in your region, we will lean on you to role model best practices and share new learnings with the rest of the team as we grow. You’re a pro at sourcing, assessing, and closing candidates, not because you’re great at sales, but because you understand the business need, the candidate’s motivations, and can thoughtfully piece it together into a win for the candidate and a win for Eventbrite. 


  • Experienced: 5+ years of experience in executive recruiting, business development, management consulting, or similar research. Hands-on experience hiring for Director level and above roles, including high-touch C-suite executive search management and hiring for multiple roles simultaneously.
  • Drives Impact: You have a proven track record of not only closing difficult searches but in building long-term relationships with candidates. You will ensure searches are completed in a timely manner, regardless of whether search is managed internally by Eventbrite resources or externally by outside agency partners.
  • Strategic: You rely on data and insights to drive decision making and to educate on recruiting best practices, talent market/landscape, and recruiting processes and tools. You are a trusted thought partner and talent advisor with leaders to establish plans, define strategies, and deliver solutions that redefine the way we recruit for leadership talent.
  • Innovative: You regularly think outside the box and have an arsenal of ideas on how to best engage and bring together diverse talent, hiring managers, and the opportunity. We’re looking for resourceful individuals eager to try new things and take chances to adapt how Eventbrite’s Talent Acquisition function operates. You have a strong commitment to learning.
  • Interpersonal communications skills: You have the ability to authentically listen and communicate (written and verbally) in a way that allows you to influence at all levels across the organization. You respectfully challenge assumptions to ensure a fair and equitable hiring process is completed, and the best leadership hire is made for the organization.
  • Influential: You can build trusted relationships and productive partnerships with C-suite Executives, their leadership teams, and cross-functional partners. You will partner as appropriate throughout the recruitment cycle from identification and assessment through offer. You have the proven ability to earn trust and credibility quickly via use of market intelligence and other data based insights on the talent market/competitive landscape.
  • Flexible: You have the ability to thrive in a dynamic environment. You can pivot and acclimate, work well under pressure and embody grace under fire. And you do it all while juggling searches for multiple leadership positions.
  • Delightful: As an ambassador of Eventbrite, you are accountable for embodying the spirit of the company both internally and externally. You create exceptional candidate and hiring manager experiences acting as an advocate for both. You are an awesome teammate; always willing to share, support and coach so that everyone learns and grows.
