The Team:

FACEIT is looking to scale across all departments over the next few years. We have big plans for the future, so we need to make sure we hire the right people who can help us advance to the next level! Our People team is pivotal in making sure we are bringing in and retaining the best talent out there – and to do that at scale we are looking to grow our recruitment team again!
