About On Deck
On Deck is where ambitious people grow, together.
We’re building the modern educational institution—”Stanford for the Internet.”
On Deck aims to take the “university bundle” — network, community, credentials, education —and apply it to the entire lifecycle of a person’s career.
Like college, we aim to be a place where people explore what they want to do, gain skills & expertise, and make the most meaningful relationships of their lives.
Also like universities, we want to stick around for hundreds of years.
In the last year we’ve grown…
– From 1 to 18 different fellowships
– From 300 to 3500+ different fellows
– From 10 to 100+ team members

We recently raised our series A from Keith Rabois at Founders Fund and nearly 200 of the best operators and investors (including many of our community members).
We’ve taken recruiting from 0 to 1 and grown our team to over 100 amazing people all over the world. We’re now looking for a Head of Recruiting who has extensive experience scaling recruiting at a rapidly growing company.
This is an incredibly exciting role—our first technical recruiting hire—with lots of opportunities to learn and grow, and take on responsibility from day 1.
The team is growing extremely fast, so you’ll get an inside seat at a company in blitzscale mode and make a significant impact through your work. As such, we’re also looking to hire for this role ASAP. If you’re ready to move fast, so are we. Let’s chat.

Why you might *not* be excited:
This role comes with a competitive salary, stock options, unlimited PTO with recommended minimums, and employee benefits including generous healthcare.
Our team works remotely, and we are excited about candidates globally. Please note that our team works on GMT-7 PST-friendly hours.
If you were to join On Deck, we’d want you to love it. We also know that it can be hard to tell from the outside looking in whether that would be the case for you. So, we challenged ourselves to develop an honest set of reasons someone wouldn’t want to join our company. We hope it helps you make an informed decision about whether On Deck is a place you’d love to work. In summary, On Deck may not be the place for you if:
• Another company’s mission gets you way more fired up.
• You want a 9-5 job.
• You do your best work in highly-structured, steady-paced, and meticulously-planned environments.
• You like finding and poking holes more than you like filling them.
• You see differences as divisions.
