Millions of tickets in one place.

Over the last 18 months, our HR function has grown by leaps and bounds: We brought payroll and benefits in-house, doubled our headcount, gone international and were voted as one of the best places to work by Glassdoor.

We believe that the driven, humble and wonderfully talented folks who work here are our biggest competitive advantage. Since best in class people deserve best in class support, we are on a hunt for a seasoned Senior HR Business Partner to add to our People team. This is a director level position which will play a key role in building and scaling a number of strategic functions under HR umbrella.
