What Is Employee Growth Rate & Why Is It Important?

Since 2014, Sendwave has allowed diaspora members from across Africa and Asia to send money abroad fast, saving our users over 70% relative to Western Union and MoneyGram. We’re coming off our biggest year ever, where we enabled over 30 million transactions on behalf of the diaspora communities we serve.


Despite the amazing growth, we’re still less than 1% of the global remittance market. If we want to make sending money anywhere in the world as easy and affordable as sending a text, we’ve got to scale even faster. That’s where you come in.


In 2021 we grew the Sendwave team by 135%, hiring 297 new employees across engineering, product, finance, compliance, growth marketing, customer support, and people ops. The team is more engaged than it’s ever been, with an eNPS of 50 and 94% of employees agreeing that the work they do contributes to Sendwave’s success. Yet we know the only way we’ll achieve our mission is if we can dramatically scale up our ability to hire egolessly mission-driven talent.


This position is remote with 2-4 weeks of travel per year for team and company retreats. Possible locations: Hiring worldwide! Slight preference for European/African timezones



For the first few months, you will:

  • Set our global talent acquisition strategy, including identifying key talent markets, defining our employer brand, and determining which talent-related KPIs to track to ensure our recruitment engine gets stronger over time.
  • Build up our recruiting team into a full talent acquisition team, ensuring we have the capacity to execute on our strategy.
  • Collaborate with other People Team leaders to ensure Talent Acquisition strategy fits seamlessly within the overall employee lifecycle.
  • Take full ownership of ensuring Sendwave is able to quickly hire a diverse team of top talent, enabling our company to meet our ambitious growth objectives.

Over time, your role will expand in responsibility to, much of the talent lifecycle, ensuring we have the strategies in place to retain the top talent we hire and maximize the performance of each individual within the org.


Your Superpowers:


Super important to have:

  • Experience leading Talent Acquisition in high-growth environments – the best candidates will have scaled a company’s full-time, salaried headcount 2X in two years or less.
  • Global experience is a must – you must have hired candidates across multiple countries on at least two continents.
  • Comprehensive talent acquisition experience is a must – we’re looking for someone who is comfortable leading employment branding, ATS operations, data analytics, retained search, and in-house recruiting.
  • At least two years of direct people management experience required.
  • You never stop learning – we’re looking for someone who will keep up with the latest trends, dive into the latest research, experiment with new strategies, and develop themselves and their team.

Awesome powers to add:

  • Possess a bias toward action and testing, and are analytical and critical in your approach.
  • A systems thinker who builds and iterates on processes to scale excellence.
  • Resourceful, agile, and not afraid to do the work – we’re a lean team so while strategy and management will be your main focus we want someone who is comfortable doing some sourcing, diving into a spreadsheet, taking an interview, and posting on LinkedIn if that’s the best way to get things done.
  • Demonstrated experience building partnerships and collaborating across business units and functions.
  • Passion for diversity, equity, and inclusion work, and applying it specifically to Talent Acquisition.

Bonus points if you:

  • Are based in Europe or Africa
  • Are fluent in another language, especially French, Spanish, or Portuguese
  • Are familiar with the diaspora communities we serve
