A couple of words about me...

Hello, I'm a Recruiting Professional, Career Coach and Graphic Designer currently based in Tel Aviv, Israel.

When I am not working as a Senior Recruiter for a well-known social network company, I am passionate about all things creative: web and graphic design, photography, and tech.

I am fluent in English, German, French and Spanish, and I have added Hebrew to my list of language skills since I moved to Israel in 2017. Travelling and tasting new foods and flavours also ranks pretty high on my list of things I love to do in my spare time - at least in the pre-COVID era.

Professional Experience

Senior Business Recruiter, EMEA

2018 - present

Facebook (Tel Aviv, Israel)

After 5 years of recruiting for the world's largest online-retailer, I couldn't resist the temptation of joining a company whose mission is to bring people closer together. The Facebook apps family (Facebook, Messenger, WhatsApp, Instagram, etc.) connects over 2 billion people daily, and Facebook Tel Aviv's specific mission is to connect the next billion, which is mostly located in developing countries.

I first joined Facebook as a Senior Technical Recruiter, where I was responsible for the recruitment of Software Engineers and Machine Learning specialists across all levels.

I then decided to jump back into the “business” side of things. My remit now involves G&A recruiting (ie. non-tech positions in HR, Recruiting, Finance, Public Policy, Communications, etc.) across all of Facebook’s EMEA offices, including but not limited to London, Dublin, Paris and Berlin. I am also the leading recruiter for R4R Hiring roles in Tel Aviv, Israel (which covers HR, Sourcing, Recruiting and Recruitment Projects).

Lead Technical Recruiter, Core AI & ML, EMEA

2017 - 2018

Amazon (Tel Aviv, Israel)

After years of hiring top executives into Amazon, I have decided to mix things up a bit by relocating to Israel and by joining one of the most exciting, innovative and fast-moving parts of the company: Alexa Shopping. There, I was leading the full-cycle recruitment of Software Development Engineers, Product Managers, Data Scientists and R&D Team Leads into our exciting locations of Tel Aviv and Haifa in Israel.

After successfully kicking off those two R&D centers in less than a year, my remit expanded to the full ownership of Amazon's Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence hiring across EMEA.This remit included the following specializations across 5 exciting Development Centers located in Berlin & Tübingen (Germany), Barcelona (Spain), and Tel Aviv & Haifa (Israel):
  • Machine Learning Platforms and Applications
  • Image & Video Classification
  • Speech Recognition
  • Natural Language Understanding / Natural Language Processing
  • Search & Recommendation Engines
Aside from leading the full-cycle recruitment for these sites from candidate identification to closing, I remained a certified Amazon trainer, company-culture evangelist and keeper of the high hiring bar, which was crucial to preserving Amazon's culture and company values as I helped scale the teams at an outrageously fast pace.

Amazon (Luxembourg)

As an Executive Recruiter at Amazon, I was responsible for end-to-end execution of Director, Vice President and Country Head searches across Europe and Middle-East (Luxembourg, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Turkey, Israel and UAE).

My focus was on identifying and engaging with senior-level candidates across a multitude of Amazon businesses: Retail, Marketplace, Kindle, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Amazon Instant Video (AIV), Tech (Liquavista/Lab126/Alexa), and corporate functions (HR, Talent Acquisition, Marketing, Legal, Finance, Tax, etc...)
