Connecting people with great local businesses

Are we looking for you? You are passionate about people analytics and have some great experience, but you’re looking for more. You’d like the opportunity to join a new team that is just starting to build a people analytics function at an awesome company that is public, more than 5,000 employees, and has a product used by millions of people around the world. You’re a go-getter and proactive about sharing your ideas and insights, finding problems to solve, and expanding your technical skill set, but you are also happy to listen carefully, collaborate extensively, and make an impact on problems that may be owned by others. You are very consultative. You have enough experience to be able to educate and guide others, but not so much that you need to be in charge. You are super good with data and numbers, and you have some background in statistics, programming languages, tools & technologies, data science, information science, and/or a related area, in addition to HR knowledge and experience.
