The Problems You'll Solve

At Carta, our employees set out on a mission to unlock the power of equity ownership for more people in more places. We believe that the problems we solve today unlock the opportunities of tomorrow. As a Principal HR Business Partner, you’ll work to:

  • Provide personalized counsel to leaders at multiple levels and their teams to identify, develop, and implement People priorities (not just HR best practices for HR sake) and activities that drive growth, innovation, and organizational effectiveness. This includes implementing programs, processes, and tools that will enable Cartans for success
  • Influence others to drive and execute successful delivery of all HR programs including performance management, employee voice surveys, and compensation reviews
  • Coach and advise managers on maintaining positive employee relations in areas such as performance management, career development, compensation, and leadership development. May include conducting investigations in response to employee issues, and partnering with our Employee Relations team
  • Proactively identify ways to support or create solutions for Cartan’s development training needs through conducting regular 1:1s and check-in chats
  • Navigate people and organization puzzles and processes using high judgment, operational thinking, and effective communication through an inclusive lens
  • Proactively identify and mitigate HR-related risks, ensuring strategic alignment with business objectives and labor law requirements
  • Oversee HR reports and metrics by collecting, analyzing, and interpreting HR data to identify meaningful trends, patterns, and insights that lead to innovative recommendations and new solutions
  • Support employees in the respective organizations and serve as the face of HR to these teams

The Team You'll Work With

We put people first and design programs and experiences that are best for Carta over defaulting to a best practice approach. Our team has a very hands-on approach to HR. We meet each Cartan where they’re at and take pride in supporting their growth.

You’re able to build strong relationships with business leaders and cross-functional partners by coaching, advising, and influencing outcomes that are best for Cartans. You’ll develop and execute HR strategies, and build programs that drive organizational and people effectiveness. There’s no task too small for our HRBPs at Carta, and they consistently seek opportunities to problem solve (we live in the gray area), and provide strategic and operational support to the leaders and functions they support.

You will play a critical role in building the capabilities of Carta’s leaders. You’ll partner with business leadership, and broader People team to establish talent management strategies and solutions to achieve strategic initiatives and deliver results. You will work with Cartans across geographies, both learning about local working norms as well as pulling a thread of Carta culture and People initiatives throughout.
