You are a seasoned HR People Partner with a recommended 8 years’ experience in a people-partnering role within a fast-paced, high-change environment like Tech.

You are available to help our US-based managers in their timezones, have a strong track record of interpreting and applying the appropriate sections of applicable US laws, guidelines, regulations, ordinances, and policies, to people situations as appropriate.

Managers and teammates seek your day-to-day advice, and your strategic input and guidance on bigger initiatives relating to their people.

You aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo, can help others navigate ambiguity and always approach challenges mindful of the impact on our company culture, values and teammate morale.
