Mountain View, CA (HQ)
As the X People Operations team (POps), it’s our mission to Attract, Accelerate, and Launch these moonshots into the real world. Due to the smaller size of our organization and the rapid pace of change, every Xer plays a critical role in the success of these moonshots. The X POps team not only executes programs and operations that accelerate the business, but we also are trusted thought partners to help make business-critical decisions.
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.
