Description

Are you a people person? Do you like helping others solve problems and navigate their own way? Eager to be on your toes in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment? We’re looking for a dynamic, enthusiastic Senior Manager of People Operations to join the Policygenius People team! As our first People Operations hire in Durham, you’ll serve as a crucial link between our Durham and New York headquarters to support and foster our unique culture as we expand.

Reporting into the Chief People Officer, you will work alongside key stakeholders to craft and carry out people programs to foster employee fulfillment and organizational effectiveness. You’ll help to deliver high-impact initiatives, design innovative programs, and develop efficient processes across a myriad of strategic HR functions. You will be essential in helping to scale and support the day-to-day people operations of a growing office. You’ll also get to play an integral role in continuing to develop Pg’s people strategy and enhance people practices & culture.

In this role, you will…

  • Respond to local office HR-related questions and matters that span a bevy of areas (including employee relations, immigration, benefits, compensation, and onboarding/offboarding) while wearing your compliance goggles (i.e. maintaining documentation, staying current on employment law, and leveraging outside counsel) where necessary.
  • Collaborate with people team leadership and other relevant cross-functional stakeholders to drive people programs and talent model strategy--including employer branding, diversity & inclusion programming, onboarding, employee fulfillment, and internal communications
  • Partner with the HQ NYC-based People Operations team to promote a culture of learning by supporting leaders and emerging leaders with unbiased perspective, counsel, and direct & caring feedback, providing coaching/guidance, and handling sticky situations to resolution.
  • Become an expert in and manage our HRIS (Ultipro), acting as a point person for all local office system-related inquiries, managing reporting, and streamlining processes and configuration where necessary.
  • Constantly be evolving people ops practices by analyzing trends and utilizing data to inform, developing people programs, and influencing change.
  • Co-leading with our Durham-based Recruiting Business Partner, serve as on-the-ground  people leadership for Durham employees who have questions about policies, norms, culture.

We’d love to hear from you if…

  • You have 6+ years of professional (ideally start-up) experience in various aspects of HR; Bachelor’s, PHR, and/or SHRM a plus!
  • You understand HR programs including total rewards, coaching, performance management, compliance/labor relations and have experience using a complex HRIS system (i.e. Ultipro or Workday)
  • You have natural, authentic people skills. You’re a great listener and have a knack for building trust-based relationships at all levels. You maintain objective, honest, confident, and clear communications.
  • You would describe yourself as nimble. You know how to zoom out to think on behalf of an organization and can zoom in to tackle nuances at an individual level. 
  • You hold a self-starter mindset, have gumption to take the wheel before being asked, and take comfort in significant responsibility--no matter how administrative or strategic it is.
  • You are highly motivated and process-driven with exceptional attention to detail.
  • You are fluent in “people problem-solving.” You’re a quick study who can chart the best course of action while accounting for potential impact across people, teams, and the company.
  • You are aligned with Pg’s people philosophy. You believe in the impact of building a high-performing culture, understand the work that is necessary to keep employees engaged to meet company goals, and know how to use data and tech to glean insights.

You can expect...

  • Company-paid health, dental, vision, life & disability insurance
  • 401(k) plan, FSA & commuter benefits
  • Generous PTO 
  • Training, mentorship and coaching from leadership
  • The opportunity to grow alongside a company shaking up a big, old-fashioned industry
  • Fun, diverse, open-minded coworkers
  • Dog companionship!!!
