Through strategic development and execution of Employee Experience initiatives, you support and drive business results, foster manager success, and increase employee engagement and retention. As a critical leader at OfferUp, you act as a business partner to the CEO, COO, and the broader executive team, you provide guidance and structure to all employees, and you lead the Employee Experience team.

The ideal candidate is a strategic collaborator who serves as a business partner to OfferUp leadership. You are a smart, data-driven decision maker, who is great at hiring and developing a great team, and takes professional pride in operational excellence, while meeting and exceeding stretch goals. You are highly adaptable -- having been successful in meeting the demands of a big company as well as being scrappy and hands-on in a start-up.  In addition, you have a passion for people development, and are driven to grow and scale OfferUp forward through the inevitable ups and downs of an earlier stage tech company.

This is a full-time, exempt position based out of our Bellevue headquarters location reporting to the COO (Chief Operating Officer).

  • Strategic leader of the Employee Experience team, setting our employees up for success to deliver our business goals. 
  • Partner with colleagues and leaders to create, communicate, and implement programs and initiatives aligned to business strategy in the areas of employee value proposition, employer brand, recruitment, total rewards, performance management, recognition, engagement, career development, diversity, and employee relations. 
  • Establish appropriate and effective systems, metrics, and processes to ensure that the HR operations and recruiting organization are able to track and report on activities and meet SLAs.
  • Manage compensation and benefits strategy and administration. 
  • Act as a champion for OfferUp’s mission, vision, and values and partner across the company to drive a high-performance work environment.
  • Continuously assess regulatory and compliance risk and ensure appropriate policies and procedures, working closely with the general counsel.
  • Oversee recruiting, including managing and meeting staffing/hiring objectives, championing and leading a behavior-based interview process that continually raises the bar on our talent, managing related processes such as immigration, while ensuring that we deliver the best candidate experience.
  • Performance Management: lead the strategy and implementation of effective systems and practices of performance management, including regular performance reviews, organizational leadership reviews, succession planning, performance improvement plan management, and managing and meeting objectives for rates of attrition. 
  • Training and Development: lead the strategy and implementation for training and development programs that are appropriate to the needs and scale of OfferUp.  Develop scrappy approaches to meeting our objectives (e.g. energize and leverage the skills, talent, and time of the OfferUp management team rather than hiring expensive consultants).
  • Establish and manage objectives and practices to enable OfferUp to meet its goals for building and maintaining a diverse workforce.
  • Investigate and resolve employee relations issues when necessary.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
