Contentful is excited to welcome Caitlin Whiteman to its rapidly growing team as a Senior Manager, Recruiting. In her new role, Caitlin will report directly to Sr. Director, Global Talent Acquisition Tony Le, and be based out of Denver, Colorado. Contentful has ambitious plans to more than double the size of their global team over the next 12 months, and Caitlin will be on the front lines of these people scaling efforts.
Caitlin brings an intense passion and over 10 years of experience in recruitment to Contentful. After graduating from James Madison University, she started her career as a recruiter at staffing firm Aerotek and was based in Philadelphia. After nearly a year and a half, she took the next step in her career by becoming the Staffing Supervisor at SPARKS in McLean, Virginia.
Caitlin’s most recent experience comes from her over eight years at global education technology provider 2U. She began at the company in August of 2012 and was promoted 3 times during her time with 2U, eventually serving as the Director of Recruiting for the 3,200 employee company.
2U experienced a whirlwind of growth during Caitlin's time there. From going public in March of 2014 to increasing the company’s headcount by over 32% and 800 people in just the last two years. Caitlin helped develop recruiting strategies for filling critical high volume roles and establish candidate generation pipelines. She also oversaw a team of recruiters and managed the execution of hiring strategies related to programmatic hiring for teams across the US, allowing 2U to scale its headcount over the last eight years.
While Caitlin is not working tirelessly to grow world-class teams, she is an avid world traveler and also loves exploring the local wilderness near her home in Denver. When not traveling the world, you might find Caitlin hanging out at home on a Sunday watching her favorite team, the Philadelphia Eagles, and reliving the glory of their 2018 Super Bowl run!
