What you'll do
As the People Operations Manager you will have three main areas of focus, outlined below. However, as an early member of our People team, you will have significant ability to form your role and scope of work, and grow in your career in a direction that makes sense for you. 
Technology: Own all People, HR, and Benefits systems. You will make sure everything is up-to-date and all our processes integrate flawlessly.
People: Design, develop and roll out our orientation and on-boarding programs. You will be the first point of contact for all our new hires and will make sure they have a great welcoming experience and are quickly set up to succeed.
Process: Maintain all our processes to be current and compliant with federal, state, local and our own regulations and norms - building and enhancing our company and our culture through them.
