  • Coaching and developing managers: You’ll leverage your experience in organizational design, building high performing teams, and navigating difficult conversations to coach managers and leaders through the full range of the employee journey
  • Managing organizational change: You’ll collaborate with other People team members to effectively communicate and land organizational changes by advocating for engineering-specific needs and facilitating company-wide communications and trainings
  • Advising compensation design: By partnering directly with our compensation team, you’ll help drive decisions that align our culture with our reward strategies while ensuring internal equity
  • Championing the Engineering culture: You’ll be responsible for championing and stewarding the culture of our Engineering teams - ensuring that their unique voices, perspectives, and challenges are heard
  • Rolling up your sleeves: From data entry to ad-hoc administrative work, you’re ready to jump in and do what it takes to support our people operations and programs

About you:

  • At least 8 years of HR business partner experience

  • Comfort with interpreting and using people data to tell a story and translating it into actionable strategy
  • A passion for advocating for others, speaking up even when it’s difficult, and seeing others accomplish their goals
  • A passion for seeing others grow through coaching, mentoring, and career development

Bonus points:

  • Passion for Engineering, first principles thinking, and the challenges facing an engineering org bringing “tech” to a heavily regulated industry
  • Experience working and learning in a high growth, fast-paced environment

We’re looking for more growth-minded and collaborative people to be a part our journey in democratizing finance for all. If you’re ready to give 100% in helping us achieve our mission—we’d love to have you apply even if you feel unsure about whether you meet every single requirement in this posting.
