Employee Testimonials


To continue to thrive over the long-term, Carbonite must be staffed at every level with people equipped to deliver on the Company’s mission. We must attract, develop and retain high-performers, and ensure that everyone at Carbonite works in an environment that maximizes their potential and contribution and that fulfills their aspirations. 

The talent acquisition team’s mission is to identify, attract and hire high-performers who will drive Carbonite’s overall business goals & objectives and serve as a competitive advantage for the Company.

As a Technical Recruiter on the talent acquisition team, you will be a key contributor in achieving this mission. You will own the full recruiting lifecycle, from research to close, providing the utmost experience for your clients and candidates.  In this role, you will drive candidate sourcing strategies to attract and hire top quality talent.  You’ll also closely partner with hiring managers throughout your search, advising, coaching and guiding them through the process. 

You will manage multiple searches concurrently in various functions and locations, so being nimble and comfortable operating in a fast-paced dynamic environment are vital to the success of this role.  This is a great opportunity for an agency recruiter to come in house, recruit for technical roles and directly impact the organization.

Specific Objectives and Responsibilities:

Your First Six Months:

  • Internalize Carbonite’s culture and values. This is a key to future success.
  • Learn and adopt Carbonite’s best practices for hiring. Drive consistent implementation of those practices with each search and your customers.
  • Ramp up and become an expert with Carbonite’s recruiting tools and ATS.
  • Develop candidate generation sourcing strategies for each search you are assigned; be creative, don’t be afraid to use unconventional sourcing tools/techniques.
  • Partner with hiring managers to clearly understand the requirements for each recruiting assignment; develop a deep understanding of the team’s dynamics, how the role and its team contribute to the overall company goals, and how to position the role to attract and retain “A” players. 
  • Lead the recruitment process and the interviewers participating in each search you own.
  • Take ownership for successful completion of recruiting assignments. By doing so, gain confidence and respect of partnering hiring managers.
  • Ensure an outstanding experience for every candidate who interviews with Carbonite and every customer you collaborate with.
  • Partner with HRBPs to ensure functional and role alignment with your searches.
Six to Twelve Months and Beyond:

  • Collaborate with talent team members to continually improve results and team capability. 
  • Participate in events and functions that expand relationships with targeted talent pools and enhance Carbonite’s employment brand.
  • Develop an effective pipeline of key talent potentially available for immediate hire as succession planning needs dictate.

Key Challenges to Overcome:

Recruiting top talent is always a challenge. The challenges for this role go beyond that. Every company wants to have the capability to attract, retain, and develop the best talent. Yet most do that poorly. Why? The simplest explanation is that it is not easy. Achieving the mission of the talent team will be a major challenge—and doing it successfully will be a major achievement. 

This is clearly a unique opportunity for someone that is passionate about recruiting and wants to move beyond transactional recruiting in order to become a strategic player empowered to directly impact business results.  A passion and knack for problem solving are essential.

What has been the highlight of your Carbonite career so far?

Over the past six years, Carbonite has given me the opportunity to work with some of the most innovative and supportive engineering teams, the autonomy to utilize market leading technology, and the flexibility to balance my workload and support a family.

Johnathan Ferrick
Product Manager

How would you describe Carbonite's culture?

Carbonite is a highly collaborative company. With offices in different geographic locations, the Carbonite culture makes it very easy to communicate and collaborate with other employees. Managers have an open door policy and most sit with their teams instead of in an office. Carbonistas tend to have in-person conversations to work on cross-functional projects instead of email or chat, so it is pretty common for someone to just walk over to someone’s desk to talk through things.

Rutuja Honnatti
Senior Business Intelligence Engineer
