Who we are

A Thinking Ape builds communities through mobile games with emergent social play and original IP. We released our first game in 2009 and have been profitable and growing every year since. We are a bottom-up driven company with small teams that have a big focus on ownership and data driven decision making. Our portfolio of games are growing and we are scaling our team to bring our games to more players.

The job

We are growing to the next level and to support our big goals for the year we need more resources. You will be integral to helping us hit our ambitious recruitment goals and building out our team over the next 6 months while partnering alongside our current full-time recruiter. Your role will include sourcing, coordinating, interviewing, coaching and consulting hiring managers and delivering a high-quality candidate experience.

The team

The people team consists of three members who work to create a culture that attracts talented and values aligned folks to ATA and empowers them to do their best work. We do this by focusing our work around four pillars. These pillars are employer branding, talent acquisition, training and development, and employee experience. We partner with business leaders across the organization to develop and execute people operation strategies that support ATA.

Things you will work on

Who you are

Building relationships comes naturally to you. Whether that is working with a hiring manager on a job posting and the requirements for a new role or talking to a candidate on the phone about ATA’s growing teams. You are excited about understanding people’s motivations and if they are a match for an open role at ATA. You are equally excited to source candidates for hard to fill roles or work on employer branding projects to attract the right people to ATA. You understand the need for diverse teams and inclusive processes and always keep this in mind when creating new strategies.

The primary qualifications we’re looking for are

Some other things that help are

Remote first

We have committed to a remote first approach for 2021 with access to in-person collaboration spaces in Vancouver when safe to do so. Our intention is to use 2021 as the foundational year to develop our remote excellence and help shape the future of ATA. This means our roles are currently open to candidates who can work in Canada between the core hours of 11am - 4pm PST.

While everyone on our team is different, to thrive here you should...

What’s in it for you

At ATA you’re offered a flexible, safe, inclusive environment in which you have the autonomy to do your best work, surrounded by a strong team and with the encouragement of supportive leadership that doesn’t just care what you’re doing, but how you’re doing. You’re trusted, respected, listened to, cared for and valued. You take on thought-provoking projects and tackle fun problems alongside people who are equally invested in making meaningful contributions and seeing new ideas come to life. You know how your work aligns with the company’s goals. Your career is given the space and resources to progress. You accomplish things that make you proud. You are compensated competitively, your health and wellbeing are top priorities and you enjoy plenty of perks. You build communities, take ownership, have wonderful arguments, let the best ideas win and keep growing. You don’t just work for ATA, you are an integral part of ATA.

Our commitment to inclusion

At ATA we build communities. But community extends beyond our players: it also encompasses our employees and candidates. We support diversity in the workplace and always strive for inclusion. Part of this is selfish; we believe we’ll make better decisions if we’re able to tap into a variety of different perspectives. But we also care that our employees and candidates feel valued and comfortable being themselves. Please consider applying even if you don't meet every qualification. Experience comes in many forms and we value adding diverse perspectives to our teams.
