  • Process employee changes and terminations, including document generation, notifications, and HR systems updates.
  • Participate in system testing for new programs, systems, or process rollouts.
  • Support with reporting, audit, and data integrity initiatives.

  • As needed, assist with onboarding new hires (system entry, paperwork validation, background check administration).
  • Document, maintain, and communicate core HR processes to stakeholders, managers, and employees.
  • Identify and drive process improvement efforts, leveraging HR systems to automate and eliminate bottlenecks

Who You'll Work With:

  • People Operations, People Partners, Recruiting and Finance teams
  • Global employees of all levels
  • Third-party vendors
  • Internal and external legal counsel

What It Takes:

  • A positive attitude and a passion for learning. You understand that everything you do impacts our candidates and internal client groups. No task is too small, and you keep cool under pressure when the work volume is high.
  • A desire to make the internal client, employee and manager experience simpler, more pleasant, and more productive is always top of mind for you.
  • An eye for scalable solutions and a passion for technology and automation - you are always exploring new systems solutions for you and your team in pursuit of increased efficiency and effectiveness. Solve for the long term.
  • An analytical mindset. Data and process are your friends, and you are comfortable navigating Google Sheets and Excel documents.
  • Ideally, 2 + years of experience working on an HR or People Operations team, including experience an HRIS (Rippling experience strongly preferred) and other solutions in the HR tech stack (Slack, CultureAmp, Lever, Okta, Microsoft Office Suite, DocuSign).
  • An obsession with adding value and getting things done with a high level of craftsmanship. You are detail-oriented and triple-check your work before shipping.
  • You can easily handle multiple tasks simultaneously with expert organizational skills and an ability to prioritize effectively.
  • Discretion — you know how to maintain confidentiality but also recognize what needs to be escalated.
  • The role may include some travel for business purposes.
  • Ability to function independently and problem-solve with minimal direction.
