At Mercury we care a lot about our people. A thoughtful People team is a key part of attracting and taking care of our team. We are looking for someone who can build out and scale our People Partner team.

The person who fills this role will help drive people and business initiatives across the company. This role is both hands-on and strategic, and provides expertise in the areas of employee relations, performance management, compensation, employee retention, coaching and development, conflict management, and will also take on ad hoc projects as necessary.

Here are some things you’ll do on the job:

  • Understand the business as a whole and act as a strategic thought partner to managers and leaders across the organization
  • Partner with and advise leaders and managers on all things people-related, such as performance management & coaching, employee relations, leveling processes and organizational development
  • Partner effectively with People Partners and centers of excellence such as Learning & Development, Compensation, Recruiting, Talent Management and Benefits
  • Work with the People team to drive key talent processes for your client groups, such as annual performance reviews, talent planning, and compensation cycles
  • Proactively identify opportunities and assess improvements to the employee experience, and partner with the HR team to develop and implement lasting solutions
  • Ensure employee inquiries are answered and/or properly routed in a timely manner
  • Analyze various types of employee data (survey data, performance reviews, compensation data) to identify trends across Mercury and recommend solutions to improve performance and engagement

Ideally, you’ll have some of the following qualities—but if you don’t fit this mold and feel like you could do a great job, we’d love to hear from you anyway:

  • Have a bachelor’s degree or something you feel is equivalent and 3+ years of experience, OR have a master’s degree in HR (MILR, MHRM, etc)
  • Maintain a high degree of professionalism – can interface with all levels of the organization as a primary point of contact for the team
  • Be willing to influence and advocate for philosophies you believe in
  • Be passionate about tackling problems and solving them in a creative and thoughtful way
  • Have a high level of integrity and the ability to handle confidential information discreetly
  • Have a passion for working efficiently with great tools, and be willing to learn the tools we are currently using (Radford, Gusto, Humi, Notion)
  • Have a ton of fun while doing everything above

Our salary ranges are based on paying competitively for our size and industry, and all employees receive salary + equity + benefits. Individual pay decisions are based on a number of factors, including qualifications for the role, experience level, skillset, and balancing internal equity relative to peers at the company. The ranges shared are for the expectations as laid out in the job description, however we are often open to a wide variety of profiles, and recognize that the person we hire may be less experienced or more senior than this job description as posted. If that ends up being the case, the updated salary range will be communicated with you as a candidate.
