  • Measure the effectiveness of our benefits programs, identify and implement improvements
  • Maintain HR procedures that comply with labor regulations across the globe


The Skills

  • 5+ years of working experience as HR Manager
  • Competence to build and effectively manage interpersonal relationships at all levels of the company
  • Good knowledge of global labor laws

The Benefits

This is an amazing opportunity for someone who wants to build their career helping hundreds (or maybe thousands) of others build theirs. You’ll be joining a company with an extremely high eNPS and an executive team that is passionate and experienced at building great teams at great companies, who has been intentional about our hiring and career development practices, and who aspires to build a world-class company culture.
