The company 

Metropolis is an AI and computer vision start-up building the technological and real estate infrastructure to facilitate the future of mobility. 

Your opportunity 

This is your opportunity to join early and build something remarkable at the intersection of technology, mobility, and real estate. We are reimagining the parking experience today but developing an ecosystem to support all forms of mobility tomorrow; and if you have a passion for transforming the urban landscape to more intelligently facilitate EV charging, last mile transport, autonomous vehicles, and even electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL), please consider joining us. In fact, please come help us hire amazingly talented and wonderful people so that we can realize this vision together.

Our team

The Company is led by an experienced executive team with diverse backgrounds, including a successful LA-based tech founder, senior professionals from BlackRock, Uber and Getaround, and a technical leader from eHarmony and DogVacay.

We approach life with wonder and curiosity. We’re inventors, skeptics and, at times, have been called crazy. We challenge one another with passion, from principle and with respect. But above all, we are relentless in our drive to build a collaborative, diverse, and inclusive culture.

The role

We are seeking a proactive and collaborative self-starter to become our Director of People Operations. This leadership role will be responsible for designing and deploying the company’s strategy for candidate and employee experience; you can expect to own the entire lifecycle: from recruiting, hiring, and onboarding to talent development and performance management. Additionally, and most importantly, we are looking for you to join us in cultivating a supportive and inclusive work environment for all of our employees. Ultimately, you will ensure we provide equal opportunities to all candidates and employees regardless of their protected characteristics.

You likely have:

  • High emotional intelligence and excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to generate enthusiasm and confidence from others
  • An aptitude for identifying, attracting, and developing talent and building strong teams
  • Ability to work with highly sensitive and confidential materials 
  • Prior success in creating step-change improvements to people processes and creating a world-class candidate and employee experience
  • Strength in developing creative solutions to address scaling challenges across geographies
  • Exceptional planning and technical skills with the ability to manage multiple high-visibility projects simultaneously 
  • Proven ability to deal with conflict and diffuse difficult situations

What you will do:

  • Establish parameters, policies, and processes for managing title, level, compensation, pay equity, and diversity and inclusion
  • Build and institutionalize efficient recruiting and hiring processes
  • Develop and deploy onboarding programs
  • Create a culture of real time feedback and implement systems for talent development and performance management
  • Develop strategies to reward and retain high performers 
  • Manage search and recruiting vendors
  • Hire a team of People professionals and technical recruiters 

Benefits

  • Attractive compensation and generous benefits package (100% Medical, 50% Vision and 50% Dental)
  • Company 401(k) match up to 6% of salary
  • Paid company snacks and after-hour meals

An Insider's view of Metropolis

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Building a network of technology-enabled real estate. We use machine vision, IoT, apps, and distributed computing to blur the boundary of the physical and digital world. Every day is a challenge and a ton of fun.

Bryant

Director of Product

What makes someone successful on your team?

The engineers that are successful on our team know how to focus on not only the technical implementation but also have the ability to deliver results that match the product vision and business needs. Ultimately the more the individual contributes to team success the more they will achieve individual success.

Jamie

Principal Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

If you believe that at some point there will be a critical mass of vehicles on the road that are autonomous, there needs to be tech-enabled infrastructure for that ecosystem to function. We want to transform what has always been a narrowly defined parking business into a mobility company that powers every component of the mobility ecosystem.

Courtney

Co-Founder & Head of Partnerships

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our offices are pretty cool -- we have a relaxation room with turf and couches, great snacks and coffee, a monthly “happy hour” where we go to new places like rooftop restaurants and VR arcades to have fun and connect.

Caroline

Executive Assistant
