Reporting to the Vice President, People, you will be responsible for the success of our employee engagement and team performance through people programs and manager support for 2021 and beyond. Maven is growing rapidly - aiming to double (again) this year - and empathetic, objective People leadership will be critical in creating an environment where everyone can do their best work and be their true selves. The ideal candidate for this position is a People leader who is adept at building candid relationships at all levels, a proven metrics-driven operator, and someone with a bias for action. You are a person who people at work and outside of work look to for sound advice, needed encouragement, and the honest truth. You know that a company’s success is entirely dependent on its People strategy. 

As the Director, People Partners you will: 

  • Support 2-3 functional teams by delivering people programs (performance management, compensation review, manager training, employee workshops, engagement surveys) to your teams. You will be the right hand to your executives, a coach to your managers, and an objective, empathetic resource for the Mavens you support. 
  • Act on insights you gain from people data to drive engagement and performance on your teams and across Maven. Build processes that will help us work more efficiently with an eye towards operating at scale.
  • Constantly iterate on people programs based on feedback from your teams and the rest of the company. Identify areas where we can build and deliver new company-wide programs, and lead program design. 
  • Build credibility through your actions and interactions with Mavens to become a trusted resource and great example to all.
  • Mentor up-and-coming People leaders on our team by sharing your wisdom and leading by example in managing competing priorities, navigating complex people situations, and establishing trusted relationships with senior leaders.
  • Partner with cross-functional teams (Finance, Recruiting, People Experience) to ensure clear lines of ownership, efficient processes, and a great experience for Mavens and candidates. 

We’re looking for you to bring:  

  • 8+ years of experience in HRBP, People leadership, or equivalent business operations roles.
  • Strong influencing skills to quickly build credibility, establish rapport and engage in executive level partnerships.
  • Excellent communication skills in all forms that exhibit your objectivity, empathy, patience, and diplomacy.
  • An entrepreneurial drive, ability to create order from chaos, and willingness to roll up sleeves to directly solve challenging problems.

Helpful experiences and skills (if you don’t have them, it’s not a dealbreaker!): 

  • Early stage startup experience (Series A-C)
  • Experience in other parts of a business (outside of People)
  • Deep experience in employment law/compliance

At Maven we believe that a diverse set of backgrounds and experiences enrich our teams and allow us to achieve above and beyond our goals. If you do not have experience in all of the areas detailed above, we hope that you will share your unique background with us in your application and how it can be additive to our teams.
