At Palo Alto Networks® everything starts and ends with our mission:
Being the cybersecurity partner of choice, protecting our digital way of life.
We have the vision of a world where each day is safer and more secure than the one before. These aren’t easy goals to accomplish – but we’re not here for easy. We’re here for better. We are a company built on the foundation of challenging and disrupting the way things are done, and we’re looking for innovators who are as committed to shaping the future of cybersecurity as we are.
We are seeking a Sourcer who will support our hiring goals, locating the most qualified talent to help us accomplish our mission. You will support the Recruiters to identify high-quality candidates in a limited talent pool. You will act as a dedicated resource to our recruitment team, supporting them by researching, identifying, and assessing talent to assist in hard-to-fill positions. The people we are recruiting will range from early in career to more expert engineers and executives. You will also engage in building and maintaining pipeline activities, and develop “passive” candidates through networking, cold calling, complex internet searches, name generation, and market mapping.
A successful sourcer will have creative approaches to maintaining a future pipeline of high-quality talent, using the employer brand to educate our target audiences about the opportunities available to them in cybersecurity and at Palo Alto Networks. You feel capable of growing your network in pools of high-quality talent. This role can expand to full life-cycle recruiting, taking total ownership of additional requisitions, meeting with managers to assess requirements for positions, and maintaining a consultative relationship with Manager and candidate. In this role, you will document the process, attend round table discussions, and would follow through on communication with both managers and candidates, negotiation and closing.
