What’s it like to work at iZotope? 
We’re the leaders in intelligent audio production and you’ll see that all iZotopians have a passion for what we do.  Our company, our market and our customers are growing fast.  This means all iZotope employees are engaged in interesting and challenging work.  We have the opportunity to try new and different things and lots of room for career enrichment.  We work with exceptional colleagues and foster an environment that empowers those closest to the work to make decisions and provide each other the support to move quickly and learn as we go. iZotope combines the excitement and pace of a startup with the stability and work/life balance of a market leader.  Plus, it’s really cool to work for a company in the music and film industry! 

Talent Acquisition Partner
 
At iZotope, we’re obsessed with great sound. Our intelligent audio technology helps musicians, music producers, and audio post engineers focus on their craft rather than the tech behind it. We design award-winning software, plug-ins, hardware, and apps powered by quality audio processing, machine learning, and strikingly intuitive interfaces.
 
The mission of the People team at iZotope is to attract, retain, and develop our people into an environment that encourages high levels of autonomy, mastery, and purpose in the vision to create the world’s best audio production platform. We are looking for a Talent Acquisition Partner with a People Ops mindset to enable and support work of this mission while keeping our values at the center of everything we do. If working in an environment where employee experience over established systems, small improvements are implemented over epic programs, and you value experimentation over tradition, then this could be the team for you. This role will be reporting to our Head of People position and based in the Cambridge, MA headquarters. 
 
You are a People Ops generalist and an attractor of talent who will play a key role in supporting our distributed team across Boston, LA, NY, Tokyo and Berlin and remote team members. This role requires someone who is self-motivated to work as a true business partner to create value and build processes around hiring strategy initiatives, team insight and effectiveness, org design, and leading through change. The partnership is realized when you understand what is happening inside and outside the company and bring that information to the business to help hiring managers make better talent decisions. As part of an agile People Ops team, you will share in the mindset and techniques that allow us to be adaptable to constant change and harness the power of the collective to bring exceptional value to the business.
