  • An influencer, you thrive in front of any audience,  and drive awareness, dedication, and accountability across the organization, and 
  • An exceptional and empathetic communicator, you thrive on helping people bridge the gap between perspectives
  • A builder, whether it’s bringing together disparate efforts/initiatives or starting from scratch, you love creating something new

What you’ll do:

  • Define and execute on a cohesive DE&I strategy and roadmap for Greenhouse
  • Partner with our internal teams as our DE&I SME and consultant
  • Partner with People teams to build/expand our existing DE&I efforts and integrate a DE&I lens into our processes, projects, and initiatives
  • Enable and accelerate our internal communities by building/providing infrastructure and accelerating education/literacy in the organization

  • Be an external-facing leadership presence at OPEN, Roadshows, and industry events

You should have:

  • Forward-thinking People/HR experience
  • Experience in community-building and/or DE&I
  • A track record in successfully enabling DE&I efforts in a distributed, growing organization, including building ERGs
  • Demonstrable experience translating data and analytics to drive compelling stories and organizational transformation
  • Experience working with recruiting teams and senior executives
  • Experience as an HR Business Partner, preferred
  • Experience in 1,000+ person companies or high-growth environments, preferred
  • Your own unique talents - if you don’t meet 100% of the qualifications outlined above, tell us why you’d be a phenomenal fit for this role in your cover letter.
