Director of People and Culture
Engage, attract and retain world-class talent.

Macro-Eyes is recruiting a Director of People & Culture to design and build a strategy and precision operation for recruiting new talent, retaining current talent, and reinforcing our culture while we grow.

The Director of People & Culture will be a member of the leadership team and will work closely with the CEO, Chief Business Officer, Chief Engineer, and suite of Directors to ensure that we are engaging, attracting and retaining world-class talent. To meet organic demand and to achieve our business and impact targets, we need to significantly increase the size of our team. We are in perpetual recruiting mode for engineering talent. Amid rapid growth, we need to retain the rigorous, radical soul of our company and ensure that we don’t replicate the ineffective thinking of the industries we’re disrupting.

Our team is global, this role will need a multicultural mentality to hiring, engagement and growth. It is our intent to represent the world in our team - hiring the best and ensuring diversity across geographies, races, genders, socio-economic status, and educations. The foundations of our success are passion, intellect, and fierce intent to take on a problem when it isn’t being solved (inside MACRO-EYES and in the world at large).

Team culture has been challenging since COVID. The diversity and broad geographic footprint of our team deepens this challenge. The Director of People & Culture will drive an environment of learning, respect, passion, and intelligent optimism across the organization. They will partner with other leaders to ensure teams feel like they are an essential part of something far bigger than their immediate colleagues. Mission driven and business minded. A team pulling in the same direction. Working to right a wrong in the world, working on something that is larger than yourself – and worthy – is the greatest thing a human can do.

Ensuring data-driven, fair compensation across geographies is a challenge. In a growing company, we must work to generate financial stability for our employees while incentivizing fierce drive for creation and commitment to our mission. Incentives are extremely challenging and can (and likely should) extend beyond the basics of bonuses and stock options. The Director of People & Culture will ensure that excellent work is rewarded and rewarded in a way that benefits the individual and the company. This will include designing and driving the employee review process.

While every Director has their own area of focus and teams are small (right now) – no one at Macro-Eyes is alone in their endeavor. It is the responsibility of every leader at this organization to build and support the efforts of those around them.

  • Design and build a comprehensive HR strategy and operation.
  • Organizational design: Facilitate strategic hiring in collaboration with division and service leads. Regularly check in on capacity and growth needs. Guide strategies for each team to engage talent through conventional and unconventional channels.
  • Work with external partners and platforms to access the best talent in the world. This will include traditional and alternative hiring partners, direct relationships with universities and meet-ups, veteran services, and engaging with those with disabilities. Our team must represent our world.
  • Work with leadership to design and build a culture for an engaging career and the advancement of Macro-Eyes. Culture is paramount for companies with decentralized teams, it is also exceptionally challenging.
  • Design and enforce an equitable, data-driven review process for employees including annual leadership reviews.
  • Protect the employee from the company; protect the company from the employee. Do this through mitigation rather than response.
  • Lead the coordination of the annual global retreat.

For a decentralized company, this retreat represents a rare opportunity to build kinship, vision, and passion for our work and the communities we serve.

  • Strong written and oral communication skills.
  • Strong organizational and execution skills, including strategic thinking and operationalizing processes with minimal direction.
  • Tactical and strategic. The operational insight to know when to devote resources to building overarching, longer-term infrastructure and when to execute on the here and now.

ADDITIONAL JOB REQUIREMENTS

What we’ll ask of you:

  • Take a task and run with it. There’s not a lot of hierarchy, and everybody organically occupies the space they’re given to get something done.

  • Be forthcoming and accountable. About time, scope, questions, needs, options, deliverables.
