We’re on a scale up journey, and we’re seeking people who thrive in this stage, given the autonomy, and the opportunity, to do the best work of their career.

Why We’re Hiring For This Role

As we continue on our journey towards growth, we are excited to be in a scale-up phase which means looking for amazing Talent to join the Float team.

We have open roles in almost all departments including Engineering, Customer Success, Operations, and Marketing and as we are a global async team, we hire people from many different countries around the globe

We are looking for an experienced and strategic HR operator based in the United States to help us find the best candidates from a global and fully remote talent pool. You will play a crucial part in building our 50+ person team and continuing to establish Float as a leader in remote working. We’re very passionate about creating a Best Work Life experience and that starts at hiring

Collaborating closely with Romina, our Talent Experience Coordinator, and Amber, our Team Experience Manager, you will be responsible for providing the best candidate experience and ensuring our new team members feel supported and set up for success. While Amber focusses on development and retention of our team, this role will focus on the beginning of the employee lifecycle as well as when folks leave.

Your role will work to evolve the current processes we have to support a growing team and communicate, support and educate the team on Float’s unique hiring practices that enable us to scale our team.

Our Director of People and Operations, Georgie, explains the important role you will play within our Operations team. Watch this video.

What You’ll Be Responsible For

As the Talent Manager, you will be responsible for managing the full recruitment & hiring lifecycle and process. This includes working with managers to refine job requisitions, developing job descriptions, developing hiring strategies, screening candidates, vetting applications, and working closely with hiring managers to understand their forecasted hiring needs. Initially, your focus will be on taking on hiring as Linda, our Talent Partner, will be finishing up at Float at the end of January 2024. She is here to support your onboarding so you will work closely with her to learn about the hiring process and eventually take on her full responsibilities.

In addition to hiring, you will also need a thorough understanding of and experience in implementing US labor laws. As situations arise, you will be our primary resource in navigating the complex landscape of labor rights and obligations. Maintaining high standards in handling potential situations is crucial. Preserving our values, treating our team with respect and kindness while ensuring adherence to labor laws are all key aspects of this role.

Once you settle in, you will also partner with Amber to ensure our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) strategy is supported by our hiring practices. You will collaborate with Marketing to lead our Best Work Life blog and newsletter while Georgie, Director of Operations, is on family leave. Through this editorial work, you’ll share the way we work with our growing audience of folks who share our passion for remote work and living a best work life.

In addition to hiring, you will collaborate with the operations team on projects such as our annual team meetup.

Your overall goal will be to attract and hire high-density talent and make a meaningful impact on the experience of our team.

What You’ll Need To Be Successful

We want you to love your work and believe that these skills will allow you to succeed in the role.

Applying these skills requires:

  • Previous position as HR Business Partner or similar, with hands-on experience with US labor law (HR Certifications are an asset here)
  • Full-cycle Recruitment experience within a 100% remote team
  • Excellent written communication skills
  • SaaS experience. You will have recruited for technical roles specific to SaaS teams, such as software engineering, product management, and customer success roles.
  • Deep working knowledge and expertise in HRMS and Recruiting software and tools, including Workable and LinkedIn, showcasing a strong proficiency in technology
  • Proven ability to move the hiring process forward in an async autonomous environment with little oversight
  • Solid ability to communicate effectively with all levels of the organization from Engineers to Directors to CEO and CTO
  • Demonstrates an inclusive mindset, showing adaptability and a willingness to remain open and unbiased, contributing to our team's growth.

As a fully remote team, we’re looking for someone comfortable with asynchronous communication as the default, which means you have previous remote experience and are comfortable using tools like Slack, Loom, and Linear to communicate as needed. Don’t worry—you will have significant deep work time since we have very few meetings.

Why Join Us

Pay for this role is US $126,350 (Level 3). Here’s a blog post with more information on how we determine our pay.
We’re a global async remote company with a diverse team of people from all over the world who share a common belief in living our best work life. We believe deeply in the idea of transparency and share our Float Handbook publicly so potential new team members can see first hand our perks & benefits as well as our ways of working. If you feel like you can thrive at Float to do your best work, we would love to hear from you.

Note: Industry research shows that women and those in traditionally underrepresented groups generally don’t apply to jobs unless they check all the boxes for the role. If you feel strongly that you have what it takes for this role but don’t check 100% of the boxes—that’s okay—we encourage you to apply anyway and highlight what you can bring to the table.

Hiring Process For This Role

You’ll find a lot of useful information about our interview process and what it’s like to join our global team on the Float careers page. The hiring process for this role looks like this:

  • Initial First Meet: If your application is shortlisted, you will have a 15-minute meeting with Romina from Talent. This meeting gives us an opportunity to learn more about your experience and also allows you to ask any questions you have about the role.
  • Co-Worker Interview: You’ll meet with Linda, Talent Partner, for a 30-minute interview that will deep dive into your related skills and experience
  • Manager Interview: We take a very collaborative approach to hiring, so you’ll meet with Amber and Georgie, for a 45-minute interview. Amber will be your manager while Georgie is on family leave, so we see value in you meeting both of them.
  • Founder Interview: As the final step in the process, you’ll meet with Glenn, Float’s CEO, for a 30-minute interview.

Our hiring process takes an average of 24 days from the first interview to a job offer (based on YTD 2023 data). Romina or Linda from our Talent team will be in touch each step of the way to ensure that you are well informed and aware of the next step in the process.
