What You’ll Be Responsible For

As our Talent Manager, you’ll own the full lifecycle of hiring at Float. Early on, you’ll jump right into:

  • Aligning hiring teams before opening a role: We take this upfront work very seriously because having the hiring team on the same page and saving everyone’s time is a huge piece of a great candidate experience. This work ranges from supporting the opening and submission of job requisitions to managing job description templates, kicking off our Hell Yes! page for roles, supporting Hiring Managers in recording Loom videos about the role, and publishing the job descriptions on Workable.

  • Managing the interview process: You will be in charge of the entire hiring process. This includes strategizing hiring plans, vetting applications, screening candidates, managing team availability, and coordinating interviews. Your expertise will ensure a seamless, efficient, and effective hiring process from start to finish.

  • Moving people from candidates to new team members: Sending someone a job offer can be life-changing! You will support that process by setting up offer letters, service agreements, reference checks, and background checks. The care and thought that goes into this process are critical to new team members feeling certain they made the right decision.

  • Setting new team members up for success: Manage onboarding by coordinating the onboarding team (manager + onboarding buddy), completing new hire checklists to set up accounts and get intro meetings set up on the new team member's calendar, and making sure the new team member knows what to expect on day 1 and beyond.

  • Operations support: Beyond routine hiring tasks, you will consult on and support projects, such as coordinating our annual team meetup. These projects are crucial for enhancing team cohesion and embodying Float's commitment to creating a Best Work Life experience.

As you settle in, you’ll take on more projects like:

  • Support and Educate on Hiring Practices: You will be the go-to expert for Float’s unique hiring practices, supporting and educating the team to ensure our processes remain scalable while retaining their distinctiveness. This involves evolving current practices to support a growing team and communicating these changes effectively.

  • Content Leadership: In collaboration with Georgie, Director of Operations, take the lead on our Best Work Life blog and newsletter. Through thoughtful editorial work, you'll showcase Float’s approach to remote work, team culture, and the importance of a balanced work life.

  • Evolve Float's hiring and onboarding processes: Work closely with Amber, our Team Experience Manager, to ensure that hiring practices support our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) strategy and support our growing team, ensuring scalability and maintaining the unique aspects of Float's hiring practices.

  • Forecasting and Planning: Collaborate with department heads and the senior management team to understand and anticipate hiring needs based on Float's growth and strategic direction. Your input will be vital in planning resource allocation and talent acquisition strategies.

  • Legal Compliance and Advisory: Serve as Float’s primary resource on US labor laws, advising on the complex landscape of labor rights and obligations to maintain high standards of practice. You will be responsible for ensuring that Float’s hiring and employment practices comply with legal standards and reflect our values of truthfulness, kindness, and respect.

  • Async Communication: Excellent written communication is essential for this role, given Float's global, asynchronous work environment. Your ability to convey messages clearly and effectively will be crucial in engaging with candidates and collaborating with team members across different time zones. You should also be able to speak to experience communicating effectively with all levels of the organization, from Engineers to Directors and executive leadership (CEO and CTO). Your communication skills must bridge different departments and align with Float's culture and values.

  • Keen Eye for Detail: You obsess over small details, triple-checking job descriptions, contracts, and onboarding guides to ensure we’re delivering on our value of great over good enough.

  • Autonomous Workflow: You should have a proven ability to drive the hiring process forward autonomously in an asynchronous environment with minimal oversight. You should be adept at managing your workflows efficiently and moving roles forward with hiring managers, demonstrating initiative and independence.

  • HR Business Partner Experience: Previous experience in a role such as HR Business Partner or similar, with hands-on knowledge of US labor law, would be nice to have.
