Massive growth is happening at a disruptive technology company here in NYC, and they’re looking for a Director of People and Culture to drive their human capital strategy. This company needs a tech-savvy pro with the skills to lead talent acquisition and retention, professional development, performance reviews, office culture, and everything in between. They also need a strategic mastermind who understands how HR drives business goals. There’s massive ownership here, as well as the chance to shape the future of one the fastest growing companies in NYC. Intrigued? Of course you are. Read on.
This is anything but your standard Director of HR job. As Director of People and Culture, you’ll be the leader–and guardian–of one of this company’s most prized assets: its people. From performance and productivity to recruiting to facilities, a lot of very important things will rest on your shoulders.
They’re growing tremendously, and they need a visionary stat. Building high performance teams will be one of your primary duties. You’ll drive and shape their overall talent acquisition and retention strategy, including providing expert guidance to internal stakeholders and recruiters and acting as a partner to external staffing firms. You’ll be an internal thought leader on the power of great hiring, and you’ll teach hiring managers how to find and evaluate talent for cultural fit–not just skills and experience.
Once you’ve got the best talent out there, you need to make sure their performance remains high. You’ll do that by elevating their performance review processes and providing managers with the tools and training they need to make their teams better. If you’ve got big ideas around employee talent management, you’ll get to implement them here. They are looking for a complete training and development strategy for leadership down to their most junior team members.
They believe offices are the physical manifestation of culture, so you’ll lead facilities as well. (You’ll have a facilities / office staff to rely on here — and probably hire a deputy to manage the day-to-day.)
Hired Gun Profile
You get it. There’s no other way to put it. You know that people don’t want to come to just another job, and you know that businesses don’t benefit from being staffed by a host of disengaged drones. You know that culture, passion, and ambition matter and that’s how growth is achieved.
You’ve got a 360-degree orientation when it comes to business. You know that recruiting, retention, and performance management are integral to the success of any business. You also know that nothing gets better without the right training and development. That’s why you act as a partner to stakeholders, making sure that they and their teams have the resources and tools they need to succeed.
You’ve got the strategic and management acumen to lead a broad range of initiatives, including talent planning, organizational development, performance counseling, compensation, employee retention, and training and development for employees of all levels. You know a thing or two about building great employee experiences through collaboration as well as a great office environment.
We said it once, but it bears repeating: this isn’t your standard HR job. There’s no cruising through with minimal effort here. They need a thought leader with heavy ideas about culture and talent development. Only your A game will do here.
It’s also worth noting that this company runs in a lean and agile way. They are definitely most interested in talking to People pros from hyper-growth tech companies.
This isn’t another window dressing HR job. It’ll be hard work, but you’ll have serious impact. If that’s what you’re looking for, you’ll find it here.
