To meet Robinhood’s increasingly complex needs, we’re looking for a leader who has exceptional business acumen, who builds trust and solves problems with clients at all levels, and who empowers their customers to run more effectively and inclusively.

As a Director, People Partner, you and your team will partner with business leaders across multiple functions and sites, supporting priorities ranging from organizational designs to cyclical programs. You will partner cross-functionally and collaboratively to assess, anticipate and solve HR-related needs.

  • Culture champion: Invest in our culture, advocate for our employees, inspire with our values, celebrate our diversity, and deepen our sense of inclusion
  • Rolling up your sleeves: Ready to jump in and do what it takes to support your customers and our people operations and programs

  • Global tech industry knowledge and experience
  • 5+ years of experience as a people manager
  • Experience partnering with and influencing senior leaders to help drive their people strategies and increase business outcomes
  • Expertise developing deep, trusting relationships at all levels -- from new grad employees to C-suite executives
