Recruiter and HR Professional

The role

Abett produces a data-management software product for benefits directors, HR staff and finance professionals. We are an early-stage company, but already our customers range from mid-sized enterprises to Fortune 100 firms. We are growing rapidly, and we expect to more than double our team's size in the next six months. Consequently, we are hiring a HR and recruiting professional to help accomplish that objective.

Compensation includes equity options. Abett is based in Seattle, Washington, but we are a fully distributed (remote) organization. Therefore, you can work from anywhere.

Abett’s business

Employers are key consumers of healthcare, as they agree to terms in benefits plans that dictate what care is available, and how much it costs. However, employers have historically been passive consumers of healthcare. Abett helps employers become fierce consumers, which will lead to better care and lower costs. Our product is highly disruptive, and we have ambitious objectives for how it will impact the industry. Prominent employers share those objectives and vision, which explains why they have partnered with a startup company like Abett, and our success to date. Regarding our product, we shift power from entrenched vendors to the employers and patients who pay the bills. We accomplish this mission by delivering a SaaS data-management product for employers. It provides four benefits: (1) a centralized “data store” for HR and healthcare data; (2) automated and secure data transfers between vendors; (3) “swappable” APIs, to replace vendors as needed; and (4) compliance with complex laws and regulations.

An ideal candidate and next steps

We expect an ideal candidate will:

  • Understand, and have some experience with, the key HR responsibilities associated with an early-stage company.

  • Have experience recruiting candidates, including technical candidates, in a startup environment.

  • Desire, expect, and demand responsibility.

  • Have an extremely well-developed ability to communicate in writing. Given the distributed nature of Abett’s organization and the complexity of our product, all of our staff must be very capable at both processing and articulating complex ideas in writing.

  • Understand the benefits and costs of working in a start-up venture.

Our hiring criteria is simple: All we care about is if you can solve our problem. If you believe you’re the right person for that job, then we’d love to hear from you about how you’ll do it. E-mail: sg <at> abett.com to connect. Thanks, and best regards.
