Together, we are building products and services that help create a financial system everyone can participate in.

As we continue to build...

We’re seeking curious, growth minded thinkers to help shape our vision, structures and systems; playing a key-role as we launch into our ambitious future. If you’re invigorated by our mission, values, and drive to change the world — we’d love to have you apply.

Robinhood has a primary in-office working environment; please be sure you have reviewed the preferred working location(s) for this role before applying.

About the team + role

Our People team plays a critical role in finding and growing world-class talent to achieve our mission, and we need your help!

As a People Partner (what we call HRBPs) within our technical PP group, you'll help make Robinhood an amazing place to work where our engineers can grow and thrive. By partnering with a set of client groups which could include groups like Data Science, Infrastructure or Customer Trust and Safety, you’ll implement key people programs across the departments, and you’ll support our leaders in tackling some of the toughest problems in the financial & tech industries. This is a critical role on the PeopleX team that will help to build and maintain initiatives, manage operational processes, and deliver programs that help people succeed.

What you’ll do

  • Advise and influence senior and/or executive leaders: You’ll enable the technology organization to solve critical and complex business challenges by building close partnerships with some of our most senior leaders in engineering, security and privacy, product, and research and design, and by obtaining a deep understanding of Robinhood’s business and the foundational role that our Infrastructure Team plays
  • Create and execute a people strategy aligned with business goals: By working alongside business leaders, you’ll bring together your people expertise with knowledge of our business to create and execute on a people strategy that proactively grows, develops, and engages our talent
  • Coach and develop managers: You’ll leverage your experience in change management, building high-performing teams, and navigating difficult conversations to coach managers and leaders and to set them up for success from onboarding through the full range of the employee journey
  • Manage organizational change: You’ll collaborate with other People team members to effectively communicate and land organizational changes by advocating for your group’s specific needs and facilitating company-wide communications and trainings
  • Advise on compensation design: By partnering directly with our compensation team, you’ll help drive decisions that align our culture with our reward strategies while ensuring internal parity
  • Champion Robinhood's technical culture: You’ll be responsible for championing and stewarding the culture of our Engineering teams - ensuring that their unique voices, perspectives, and challenges are heard
  • Roll up your sleeves: From data entry to ad-hoc administrative work, you’re ready to jump in and do what it takes to support our people operations and programs
  • Project-manage complex programs: You’ll work closely with the business, COEs, and fellow people partners to drive the project management of certain programs where we’re building the foundation of the technology group. As we scale quickly, we need to make sure our foundations (how we level, define career paths, measure and reward success) are growing too.

What you bring

  • 5+ years of HR experience
  • Experience as an HRBP in a more mature or later stage company within the technology sector, as well as in an earlier stage, high growth, fast paced environment.
  • If experience is exclusively in later stage companies, must have worked with a technology focused client group.
  • If experience is at both an early stage tech startup and then a mature non-tech company, that suffices even if they did not support a technical client group.
  • High agility and willingness to change and adapt as priorities evolve
  • Expertise in building relationships based on trust with leaders at all levels
  • A focus on leading with an Enterprise Mindset
  • A deep sense of empathy and understanding for the needs of diverse groups of people
  • Ability to strike a balance between strategic partnership-building and getting things done
  • Ability to drive programs forward through their own project management capabilities
  • Comfort with interpreting and using people data to tell a story and translating it into actionable strategy

What we offer

  • Market competitive and pay equity-focused compensation structure
  • 100% paid health insurance for employees with 90% coverage for dependents
  • Annual lifestyle wallet for personal wellness, learning and development, and more!
  • Lifetime maximum benefit for family forming and fertility benefits
  • Dedicated mental health support for employees and eligible dependents
  • Generous time away including company holidays, paid time off, sick time, parental leave, and more!
  • Lively office environment with catered meals, fully stocked kitchens, and geo-specific commuter benefits
