We are expanding our team! You can be anywhere in the U.S., unless otherwise stated in the job description.

If you are looking to be a part of an amazing team, have a passion for open-source software, and building a strong developer community, then come join us! Temporal helps developers focus on the important things, like writing business logic, and spend less time worrying about the underlying infrastructure. We have a great open-source community filled with awesome developers (who are also our users!) that provide us with real-time feedback and contributions. Temporal is also backed by top VC firms and has a team of professionals from other successful start-ups and well-known technology companies. We always work toward building the best community, and if these things interest you too, we’d love to hear from you.

About the role:

We are looking for an experienced and driven People Operations Manager to join our People team. This is a new role, with the opportunity to support the delivery of excellent experiences to employees and bolster our People operations strength. You will lead the execution and scaling of HR systems and processes as we continue to grow. You will be at the heart of a fast-growing, innovative tech startup, responsible for creating, developing, and improving People's operational effectiveness. Reporting to the Head of HR, Geri Murphy, you will play a key role in Temporal’s growth and the evolution of our culture. 

You will be part of an innovative team that is distributed across the US and further afield, and you will experience working with passionate folks who are dedicated to the success of Temporal. The People team supports 130 team members (growing fast!), primarily in the US and further afield. Please note this is a US-based fully-remote opportunity, but some occasional travel will be encouraged, such as our twice-annual company offsites.

What you'll do:

Employee Experience:
- Act as a sounding board for the wider People team, delivering expert advice and guidance on HR and Temporal practices, lead program design for performance management and continuous feedback cycles, and partnering with the broader People team to implement best-in-class practices.
- Take an active role in Temporal’s diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging efforts.
- Create and coordinate employee activities and events that create opportunities for connection and deepen the sense of community.

- Ensure compliance with federal, state, and local legal requirements, staying knowledgeable of existing and new legislation and advising leadership on needed actions.

- Owner of the employee handbook and Notion pages - maintaining and updating policies and guides in line with legal requirements and industry best practices.
- Creating processes, templates, and guides needed by the People team to communicate with employees.
- Key point of contact for the HR inbox; triaging emails and coordinating responses.

Be a person who understands Temporal’s culture, is passionate about cultivating and preserving it as we scale, and will thrive in a team of hard-working, loyal people who are passionate about efficiency, innovation, and teamwork.

What you bring to us:

- 4+ years of experience in a People Ops/HR role in a technology-focused organization where you owned People Ops practices and delivered measurable results.
