Play an integral role in how we scale Will Reed
In a world full of commissioned recruiters and apathetic Human Resource departments, we exist to empower individuals to take a dignified next step in their careers.
Our mission has led us to build a company with an entirely new and redemptive approach to the otherwise transactional recruiting industry. At the end of the day, we want to place the best people in the best jobs, so we cultivate a community of respect and individualism. Our processes are carefully designed to partner with our candidates through one of the most important decisions in their lives--a career change.
Give recruiting a second look.
Before jumping to conclusions about what you think a recruiting firm is all about, hear us out a bit.
By the people, for the people.
In a sense, recruiters are also in sales. Most sales roles are highly transactional, and the majority of recruiters are no exception. We think the approach should be different because what we are selling is different. Don’t get us wrong--we obviously think the sales profession is a great one--but we are not selling products that will be obsolete next month. We’re responsible for stewarding a person’s vocational calling. Because of this, we empower our team to be the coaches and allies of those we represent. This philosophical shift changes the way we relate to both clients and candidates, and it is truly what separates Will Reed Jobs from the rest.
More is more.
We are a placement firm, not a staffing firm. Big difference. Our agreements with our clients are structured so that if our candidates make more money, we do too. The client directly pays us--we aren’t skimming money off the top of our candidates’ salaries. In contrast, staffing firms take a percentage of their candidates' actual earnings, so they literally are incentivized to pinch their candidates' pay as much as possible. Not fun. Our approach ensures we are always aligned to the same goal as our candidates.
We don’t want you to just be a great employee. We want you to be a well-rounded, capable professional with a set of competitive and marketable skills. We wish we could say that’s only because we care about you so much (we do), but selfishly, it’s also because it greatly benefits our company. You’ll be challenged to quickly learn how to work with new technologies, interface with C-level execs, be conversationally persuasive (without being pushy), use proven selling techniques, scale a growing company, manage an entire transaction from prospect to invoice, and so much more.
Why we do what we do.
Laura J. | MongoDB - Austin
Laura had a strong reputation in sales leadership that she built over 10 years. While she loved her current company, Laura was looking for that next step up in responsibility. We had the privilege of introducing her to MongoDB, a pre-IPO, fast-paced company, where Laura would have the chance to build her own team from the ground up. We enjoyed walking with her each step of the interview process until she achieved her goal and was hired as MongoDB’s Area Director of Sales a few weeks later. The relationship did not end there. We’ve continued to partner with Laura to build her perfect team at MongoDB.
Aaron F. | AppDynamics - Dallas
As someone who was constantly seeking career challenges and growth, Aaron reached out to us when he became frustrated with the lack of opportunities in his current role. He was ready to join a sales organization that had a path to enterprise-level sales, so we connected him with AppDynamics. We collaborated with Aaron to make sure he had all the support he needed to excel in the recruiting process, and he was soon hired as a Business Development Rep with AppDynamics.
Yashera T. | Box - Austin
Yashera came to us at a point of transition. She had enjoyed working for a startup, but was looking for a little more stability while staying in an entrepreneurial environment. We knew Box would be the perfect balance. With Will Reed’s help, Yashera successfully jumped through the hoops and was able to secure a spot as an Outbound Business Representative. Not only has she loved Box, but she’s also been promoted since she joined a year ago.
We're going places.
Recruiting for technology sales is a huge opportunity with little competition. The stats prove it.
