Skilljar is seeking a people-focused, forward-thinker who is detail-oriented and results-driven to join as our People Operations Coordinator.

    • Take ownership of day to day benefits administration and partner with our broker to find appropriate solutions.
    • Help cultivate a positive work environment and an authentic employee experience through programs, activities and events that reinforce our culture and values.
    • Enter and maintain employee information into our HRIS on a timely basis, be accountable for administration and data integrity.
    • Take part in the fun committee and help schedule events, coordinate logistics, and prepare materials for people and culture related activities and company-wide initiatives.
    • Partner with team members on various office management tasks as needed.


    • 1+ years of People Operations/Human Resources experience in the Technology industry.
    • High growth startup experience strongly preferred.
    • Ability to handle confidential information and sensitive situations with maturity.
    • Experience with HRIS tools - preferably Zenefits, Gusto, and Small Improvements.
    • Confidence in using Google products and Macs a plus. 
    • Experience with benefits administration.
    • Comfortable working in a fast-paced, open office environment.
    • Maintain a high level of time-sensitive work prioritization, accuracy, organizational skills. 
    • Excellent interpersonal skills, self-sufficient, results-oriented with a commitment to quality, service and customer satisfaction. 
    • Ability to work independently and thrive in a highly ambiguous environment is a must for this role. 
    • US work authorization and criminal background check are required.
