Internal Recruiter / Talent Acquisition

People & Culture
Full Time

About the role

In the last 9 months, the Mr Yum team has grown from 11 to 40 people in multiple regions with zero churn. We've built a talented team who care SO much, and attracted world-class talent from companies like Uber, Square and Google. We continue to dream, challenge ourselves and back each other.

2021 is about scale - we'll need to grow the team locally and overseas. As the internal recruiter you will be responsible for talent acquisition across our Melbourne head office, Interstate and remote teams. This responsibility is currently shared between the CEO and the hiring managers who will continue to stay close to the process.

Working closely with and reporting into the CEO now, and Head of People eventually, you will be responsible for the acquisition strategy as well as day to day operations. Simply put, you will be responsible for recruiting the most passionate & talented people, and help us create the optimal environment for each person to do their absolute best work!

We are really proud of the Mr Yum culture and have recruited many team members through internal referrals (unincentivsed). Here is our newest team member raving about his onboarding process on LinkedIn.

This is an epic opporutnity to keep the flywheel turning smoothly as we scale! 🚀

About Mr Yum - Recap of 2020

Hi, we’re Mr Yum 👋

Hospitality & entertainment are tough industries where margins are slim and even more challenging now through COVID. We started Mr Yum at the end of 2018 to help venues make the numbers work.Our product is a QR code visual menu, ordering & payment platform with options for dine-in orders, pickup takeaway and delivery. Mr Yum empowers businesses to own and understand their customers, increase spend and allow their staff to focus on meaningful interactions rather than transactional ones.

In 2020, we grew 25x, found product market fit, built a trusted brand and proved out strong unit economics. Read more at our Mr Yum 2020 Recap
