In a nutshell, their work enables Clions around the world to do the very best work of their careers.

As Director of People Systems and Analytics, you will be a key member of both Clio’s People Leadership and Extended Leadership teams, and will be challenged to contribute your industry-leading vision, strategy, and tactical expertise to help us build and scale our human and high-performing organization. 

What you’ll work on:

  • Design and implement an operational infrastructure that supports our leaders and People Business Partners in making strategic people decisions, hiring forecasts, and growth plans for the future;
  • Lead the evolution of our people analytics capabilities (dashboards, reporting, metrics/KPIs, predictive models, testing, and validation) to enable better decision-making;
  • Aggregate data and generate insights and reports for People department quarterly business reviews;
  • Go beyond the numbers to extract key insights and stories from the data and communicate these insights and stories to key stakeholders across the business;
  • Identify and maintain the appropriate workflows within our new HRIS to ensure that our data and reporting is accurate, relevant, useful and streamlined;
  • Act as a subject matter expert for our People Business Partners, Talent Acquisition team, and hiring managers in conversations and decisions related to job evaluation and related people operations;
  • Contribute to the implementation and iteration of Clio’s Talent System (including development, progression and strategies to ensure we are competitively attracting and retaining top talent);
  • Represent People Operations on the People Leadership Team and, as needed, in front of the Clio Executive team and Board of Directors. 

What you may have:

  • 7-10 years experience in the People function of a rapid-growth tech company, including subject matter expertise in HR Systems and/or People Analytics;
  • First-hand experience leading the change management efforts for complex HRIS/HCM implementations (bonus points if you’d consider yourself a Workday superuser);
  • Strong project management skills and the ability to prioritize/adapt quickly to changing priorities;
  • Deep knowledge of best practices in People/HR analytics;
  • Experience building dashboards that display complex metrics in a way that is understandable and actionable;
  • Experience leading teams with a track record of high performance (bonus points if you have experience managing managers);
  • Ability to operate autonomously or in close collaboration with other leaders, as needed;
  • Advanced-level spreadsheet skills (Google Sheets or Excel); 
  • Hustle and humility.  We prioritize our incredible culture, and want you to be a cultural champion!

Serious bonus points if you have:

  • Good understanding of database concepts, including the ability to write SQL queries;
  • Experience with Workday;
  • Understanding of compensation philosophy, tools and frameworks is an asset.
