Jack Leidlein

Head of Talent

I lead Talent at First Round. In my role at First Round, I work side-by-side with founders to help them build stronger recruiting, people and business processes and operations. Everyone says hiring great people is critical to a company’s success. I’m proud to help dozens of First Round companies grow their teams every year.

I’ve spent my career helping companies of all sizes build their teams and business operations, with a special focus on attracting, retaining and motivating the best people. Prior to joining First Round Capital, I was Head of Business Operations at Scribd, the world’s largest online library where I built and led business operations and recruiting efforts for nearly four years. Prior to Scribd, I built and led high-impact teams at eBay, Organic and industry disrupters such as There, Songbird and ShareThis.

I’m a graduate of Northern Arizona University and spend my free time with family and friends or in the great outdoors on my snowboard or bike.
