We have big plans for the future, and we need someone like you to keep our growing team engaged, supported, and fulfilled. This role will cover a lot of (mostly new to us!) territory in People Operations and is critical to the success of our teams and company – you’ll partner strategically with the VP of People to drive People Ops forward and keep our top-notch talent thriving.

  • Create and manage our Employee Handbook and corresponding policies (writing new content as we develop it!), and operations of those policies.
  • Drive research, evaluation, and implementation of new programs and tools for Learning & Development, Employee Surveys, Feedback, Performance Management, and Rewards & Recognition.
  • As programs are developed, manage operations and iterate on those programs.
  • Partner with the VP of People on immigration and compensation.
  • Develop and maintain strong internal and external relationships, following through diligently.

What you have:
