About the role…
Are you a people person? Do you like helping others solve problems and navigate their own way? Eager to be on your toes in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment? We’re looking for a dynamic, enthusiastic HR Business Partner to join the Policygenius People team!
Reporting into the Senior Manager, People Operations, you will work alongside key stakeholders to support employees in specific areas of the business and carry out people programs to foster employee fulfillment and organizational effectiveness. You’ll help to build and implement high-impact initiatives and efficient processes across a myriad of strategic HR functions.

In this role, you will…
- Serve as a trusted business partner to multiple teams, supporting employees at all levels.
- Promote a culture of learning and feedback by supporting the team with unbiased perspective, counsel, and “radically candid” feedback.
- Providing proactive coaching & guidance through sticky situations that enables resolution.
- Drive People team initiatives across the employee lifecycle, including annual performance and compensation reviews.
- Partner with leadership and cross-functional stakeholders to design and launch programs and strategy; diversity, equity & inclusion, operational excellence, employee engagement, and internal communications.
- Respond to HR-related questions and matters that span a bevy of areas (including employee relations, immigration, benefits, compensation, and onboarding/offboarding) while wearing your compliance goggles (i.e. maintaining documentation and staying current on employment law) where necessary.
We’d love to hear from you if…
- You have 6+ years of professional (ideally start-up) experience in various aspects of HR; with at least 3 years experience supporting as a business partner.

- You’re a great listener and have a knack for building trust-based relationships at all levels. You maintain objective, honest, confident, and clear communications.
- Others would describe you as nimble, and able to fly both high and low. You know how to zoom out and think on behalf of an organization while zooming in to tackle nuances at an individual level.
- You hold a self-starter mindset, have gumption to take the wheel before being asked, and take comfort in significant responsibility--no matter how administrative or strategic it is.
- You have a passion for continued learning and development with at least a Bachelor’s degree.
- You are highly motivated and process-driven with exceptional attention to detail.
- You are fluent in “people problem-solving.” You’re a quick study who can chart the best course of action while accounting for potential impact across people, teams, and the company.
