WillowTree is incredibly proud of our amazing team and culture, and we want to share our story and value prop with the right talent — in an authentic way.

  • Drive qualified prospects to open roles through digital marketing strategies and convert passive candidates to active candidates by conducting follow-up calls with prospective candidates
  • Increase click, open, and response rates of outbound recruitment marketing
  • Build and nurture a talent network/community —even if candidates aren’t actively looking
  • Keep up to date with evolving technologies, market trends, competitor landscapes, and job seeker behaviors to inform your marketing
  • Collaborate with hiring managers and stakeholders to anticipate upcoming hiring needs


Strengths you can bring to our team:


  • A strong focus on brand awareness, social engagement, and lead generation
