Content to share:

LinkedIn We’re Hiring & Employee Spotlights

Each month we share a We’re hiring or Employee Spotlight on the company LinkedIn page, alternating between the two. The content is collected and posted by the Recruiting Operations team on the 2nd Wednesday of every month.

  • New Hire Spotlights feature new teammates. The question template and previous responses can be found here.
  • Teammate Spotlights feature a current teammate, ideally in a role that we are currently hiring for. This helps us to attract potential candidates. The question template and previous responses can be found here.

The Recruiting Operations team follows the following instructions to use Figma to create the banners for the posts:

  1. First, duplicate photo we want to use by clicking the title of the photo, then click command “d”
  2. Double click the text to edit
  3. To update the employee photo, click on the photo, go to “image” on right toolbar, fill image, upload image of teammate’s choosing
    1. If format gets messed up, click custom, then click “fit”
  4. Export image for LinkedIn:
    1. For normal: scroll down on right, export 2x, PNG, resolution high
    2. For compressed: figma logo top left, plugins, export compressed PDF, 2x, resolution high, PNG
