Who You Are:

As Head of Portfolio Talent at Galaxy Ventures, you'll play a pivotal role in supporting our portfolio companies in building world-class teams. You'll work closely with early-stage crypto startups, assisting them in sourcing, recruiting, interviewing, and hiring top-tier talent. Your expertise in managing and scaling teams will be crucial in guiding these companies towards long-term success. You will work directly with our Venture Platform Lead on supporting portfolio companies and creating a great founder experience with Galaxy Ventures.

What You’ll Do:

  • Talent Sourcing: Identify and attract top talent across various functions (engineering, product development, marketing, etc.) within the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry. 
  • Recruitment Strategy: Develop and implement effective recruitment strategies tailored to each portfolio company's unique needs and stage of growth, ranging from hands-on to passive support based on their stage.  
  • Industry Networking: Build and maintain a strong network within the crypto and blockchain community to stay informed about industry trends and talent movements.  
  • Hiring Process Management: Help portfolio companies through the end-to-end hiring process, including offer negotiations, reference checks, and onboarding support. Some will be entirely self-sufficient here, others may require more support – it will be your job to be nimble to their needs, while helping them become successful. 
  • Team Scaling: Collaborate with portfolio company leadership to assess current team structures, identify hiring needs, and develop plans for scaling teams effectively. 
  • HR Guidance: Provide guidance and support on HR-related matters, including compensation benchmarking, performance management, and employee retention strategies. 
  • Market Research: Conduct market research to identify emerging talent trends, competitive landscapes, and best practices in talent acquisition and management within the crypto industry. 
  • Best Practices: Coach founders of all experience levels on best practices in recruiting, hiring, team building, and more on an as-needed basis. 

What We’re Looking For:

  • 7+ years of experience working in talent at crypto startups and/or crypto venture capital ensuring a familiarity with the industry’s style, culture, and tone. 
  • Bachelor's degree in Human Resources, Business Administration, or a related field. Advanced degree or relevant certifications preferred. 
  • Prior experience in talent acquisition, HR, or recruitment, preferably within the technology or blockchain/crypto industry. 
  • Strong network and interest in the blockchain technology, and the broader fintech ecosystem. 
  • Demonstrated ability to source and recruit top-tier talent, particularly in technical roles. 
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to build rapport with founders, candidates, and internal stakeholders. 
  • Proven track record of effectively managing multiple hiring processes simultaneously in a fast-paced environment. 
  • Strategic thinker with a proactive approach to problem-solving and decision-making. 
  • Ability to thrive in a dynamic startup environment, with a high degree of autonomy and flexibility. 

Bonus Points:
