Director of People Operations – Remote

We are hiring a full-time Director of People Operations to ensure operational excellence and strengthen our services by supporting, enabling, and optimizing our people operations and team functions.


Does this describe you?

You are a people leader that believes management is an art form. You love helping teams elevate their game and improve results. You love testing management systems to ensure you are building a great culture—not a process for the sake of process. You serve as a model for others: actions and words work in harmony. You lead with kindness, respect, and empathy, while challenging your team to strive for new heights. You care about people individually, but you understand that alignment is a powerful force. You are always learning and pushing yourself to improve. You want to work in a community where others do the same.
