Head of HR

Chicago, United States

Job Description

You are an experienced HR executive who has a proven track record of aligning people and business and driving people strategy. You’re passionate about driving business results while fostering a culture that places emphasis on the team. You recognize that people aren’t resources to be used, but capital that must be properly invested. You love rolling up your sleeves, getting into the details, and doing the work when you need to. You also know when it’s time to lead, when to manage, and how to teach others the difference.

You are an expert in the mechanics of HR and make context driven decisions based upon each situation, not following a process for process sake. You empower organizational growth via scale and talent development. You assume authority through influence, not through instruction – you see yourself as a consultant to the rest of the organization, partnering with each business unit or department to enable success, rapidly growing teams.

We create powerful, beautiful and intuitive digital products. We don't blindly follow trends. We take our understanding of the latest technologies and build the best solutions for our enterprise clients. We’re big believers in collaboration across engineering, design, and product teams. We combine our individual expertise to solve complex challenges.
