KickUp, Inc. - Remote - Full time

KickUp is looking for a Head of People Operations to join our growing team. This is a new role on the KickUp leadership team, and is designed to help us strengthen our employee experience.

Your ability to work cross-functionally, understand the pulse of the company, build on the company’s existing strengths, and influence at all levels is important.

We are looking for a leader who will empower our employees at every level of the organization to be successful in their roles.

About You

  • have demonstrated an ability to build and improve processes that scale.
  • build trust and influence at all levels of an organization. Interpersonal communication and promoting transparency are strengths of yours.

  • Lead KickUp's recruiting and employee onboarding processes
  • Develop and oversee our employee learning and development program from onboarding to ongoing skill development
