Job Description

As People Operations Manager on our Operations Team, you’ll help support the entire employee lifecycle of our contractors.

The People Ops Manager will report directly to our Director of Operations, work alongside our leadership team and colleagues in all departments and will have exposure to a whole range of HR functions across different industries, locations, and job levels and work to create a best-in-class employee experience for HireArt, our clients and employees.

  • Help employees prepare for their first day to make sure they have the best experience possible

  • Internal Wiki management (we use Notion, it’s awesome to help keep us organized)

  • Assistance in helping our contractors submit PTO requests
  • Insurance  Eligibility Lookback Policy management and facilitation
  • Written warning and performance improvement plan documentation writeups

  • Help alter, create and implement processes and best practices for the People Operations team alongside Managers--we always want to get better!

  • Conduct terminations 
  • Cross-functional work with our product/engineering teams, account managers and everyone else--Operations touches all parts of HireArt, lots to do! Suggest new product features---we want your input! 
  • 5+ years of previous experience in the HR and/or Operations specialty 
  • Strong spreadsheet skills (Excel or Google Sheets)
  • Great communicator: verbal and written
  • Rises above in uncomfortable situations
  • Impeccable organizational & multi-tasking skills
  • Proactive, resourceful, and detail-oriented
  • Able to think critically about business issues and make thoughtful recommendations
  • Compassionate, empathetic, respectful, and kind
  • Ability to understand and master best practices
  • Desire to learn and grow within the field of Operations and/or HR
  • Flexibility to adjust schedule to accommodate work across time zones when necessary

Company Description

HireArt is a software company building the standard for easy contract employment. We offer employers a seamless platform that covers every part of the employment process, from finding talent to screening and interviewing, onboarding, benefits, payroll, HR support, and outplacement. We offer employees a modern, responsive and caring home base where they can enjoy the support of a traditional workplace with the fluidity of contract work.

You can think of HireArt as Zenefits or Gusto for contract staffing. Our strategy is to provide the best contract employment experience for clients and employees in a market that is expensive, manual, local, provides limited services to employers and workers, and sees limited use of software to scale manual processes. The contract staffing industry is a trillion-dollar market worldwide and there are no other modern contract employment platforms.

HireArt blends technology with personalized support to make the contract employment relationship an excellent experience for everyone. We've already helped build teams at hundreds of awesome companies including, Facebook, Google, and Airbnb, and we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of applicants in their job searches.

  • Health, dental & vision insurance (100% paid by HireArt)
