About the Position

We’re preparing for an exciting year of growth ahead! So we’re looking for an organized, detail-oriented, energetic and proactive People Operations Coordinator to join our team at HackerYou. Ultimately, you will be responsible for helping us to grow our team, working cross-departmentally in support of our students and team, and be accountable for developing and delivering our people policies in a way that lives our core values.

We are a small company (and we like it that way!) but we move quickly. There will always be a variety of tasks and projects for you to work on. We’re looking for a warm and friendly people-person who is extremely organized and detail-oriented. We’d like someone who is comfortable stepping in when required and taking ownership over project completion. And you will be appreciated for it – from both staff and students!

Reporting to the Director or Operations & Finance, this role is ideal for someone who has 2-3 years of experience working on people & culture teams, or is looking to move into a position with people-focused accountabilities, while contributing to a team that really cares about what we do every day. It would also be a great fit for someone with experience in human resources, people operations, recruiting, or hospitality!
