Position title
Sr. Manager, HR Technologies and Process Optimization

The People team helps to advance   Q-Centrix’s mission and vision, in part by stewarding a vibrant culture where every team member feels a strong sense of belonging and community. Critical to this effort is empowerment, learning and communication, which we know can only be improved by data transparency and technological efficiencies!  This is why we’re looking for a Sr. Manager of HR Technologies and Process Optimization to join our People Leadership Team, reporting to our Chief People Officer. This key leader will serve our fast-growing organization as a technical implementation and integration specialist, overseeing all elements of process optimization for People operations. The ideal candidate will be inspired to create a world-class employee experience by defining and delivering technology solutions to advance data transparency.

We take a lot of pride in what we do and the community we’ve built, which is centered around our People Team norms. If these resonate with you, we’d love to talk!
•Psychological safety: We are a team that trusts, supports and empowers each other.  We give and receive feedback in support of growth.
“Vegas” rules apply.
•Tactful communication: We keep confidential information close to the chest and use good judgement to determine who needs to be “in the know.”
•Growth mindset: We are resilient, forward-looking thinkers who ask big questions. We have a natural curiosity and a love of learning.
•Team commitment: We are united—open to debate yet committed to moving team initiatives forward together. We work as a cohesive unit without a personal agenda.
•Strategic outlook: We are in service of organizational goals—our team is a driving force in the business. We balance short-term needs with the long-term game. And, we’re scrappy…our instinct is to roll up our sleeves and contribute!
