Job Description

 

Who You Are

===============

As an International HR Operations Manager, you’ll be the go-to “on the ground” expert in charge of understanding and implementing local compliance processes, communicating these processes across the International organization, and executing processes directly with customers and workers where needed. As a local HR Operations Manager, you care deeply about both the employee and customer experience. You can simplify and articulate legalese and complex concepts into clear, easy-to-understand terms. You genuinely enjoy figuring out how and why things work and are excited by opportunities to drive improvements. You love learning about new products and subject matter (such as employment law updates), and helping others learn as well. You will develop proactive initiatives to maintain our overall compliance in the market, coordinating with other stakeholders across the International Customer Success, Sales, Legal, and Product teams.

You have a natural curiosity to develop deep subject matter expertise in your country or region, combined with a people-first and practical mindset. You are a problem solver who genuinely enjoys figuring out how and why things work, and you have an ability to both design the right compliance processes and implement them first-hand.
