HRBP - Early Stage Project

Administrative

Mountain View, CA (HQ)

 

Team:

We believe there are many problems in the world in which robotics could play a significant role in making it easier, faster and safer for people to get things done.

The role

The X People Operations team is looking for a HR Business Partner who will be responsible for managing organizational and people-related strategy and execution as well as partnering with X's leaders to create a comprehensive people plan to influence lasting change within projects at X.  The role of an HR Business Partner is to solve complex organizational challenges with people-related solutions. You’ll be an integral part of the leadership team: a thought leader of people and organizational topics who understands every aspect of the business.

You’ll partner with a cross-functional group of subject matter experts to design and execute the strategy for how we hire, onboard, develop, motivate, retain and organize Xers.  In our hands-on culture, you’ll have the opportunity to work side-by-side with teams across X to get things done, including rolling out key programs such as workforce planning, compensation, performance management, and talent development.

This role requires working collaboratively, strong communication, a heightened attention to detail, superb organization, and collaboration with a wide variety of stakeholders.

The ideal candidate is someone who is experienced with change management and is comfortable operating in an organization that scales quickly. We are a dynamic organization that likes to run experiments so are looking for a colleague who is excited about trying new things and offering a creative yet efficient approach to people programs. This will require you to think big, use data to guide your work, be comfortable challenging convention, and in some cases reinvent how work is done.  You are scrappy and resourceful, creative and driven -- and excited to share in the magic of working at X.

Responsibilities:

  • Offer thought leadership regarding organizational and people-related strategy and execution. Provide insightful data to guide decision making and provide proactive solutions. Partner with the X People Ops team. Work gets done via collaboration with a group of partners: the X HRBPs, as well as Learning & Development, Inclusion, Comp, Staffing, People Programs etc.
  • Consult with X's leaders to create a comprehensive people plan to influence lasting change over functions at X.
  • Solve problems and get to the root cause of any issue, no matter how complex, and design and quickly implement solutions that cut across multiple disciplines, even those beyond people and organizational solutions.
  • Provide expertise in the following areas: career planning, performance management, coaching, data analysis, compensation and rewards, employee relations, learning and development, recognition programs, and strategic development.
  • Be a role model and guide for Xers. Champion, promote and demonstrate what our culture means in practice.  Be able to articulate clearly why we do some of the things we do, such as how benefits relate to our values, how our performance process is very true to our culture. That also means making your voice heard where necessary and calling out bad behavior - not everyone needs to adore you; it's about doing the right thing. Be a partner and trusted advisor to leaders.  Ensure they are well connected with Xers, get involved in X life beyond the day to day, demonstrate the appropriate behaviors and are consistent in word and deed. Also, be our leaders' eyes and ears on the ground to inform them of what's going on, and keep track of the pulse, state of morale, etc.

Minimum qualifications:

  • BA/BS degree or equivalent practical experience
  • 7 years of HR Business Partner or generalist experience supporting senior clients

Preferred qualifications:

  • MA/MS/MBA degree.
  • Experience working as a management consultant, working with external clients.
  • Proven ability to work within constraints while challenging the status quo.
  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills. Ability to analyze data, understand trends and develop recommendations for action based on the analysis.
  • Comfortable with ambiguity and being a part of deeply complex strategy discussions.
  • Skilled communicator with a strong ability to build relationships with senior leaders and a complex set of stakeholders to drive organizational change.

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. 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.

How do I know if I have a disability?
