Championing people, culture, and innovation, hand in hand with your business units

You enjoy applying your creativity and sound judgment to support business leaders through their people challenges? You pride yourself on your flexibility and open-mindedness? You get a high from seeing your hands-on work steadily help structure, accelerate and free the business to focus on its most pressing objectives? Sounds like you’ll thrive here!

How does that unfold?

As a Senior HR Business Partner, you will serve as a trusted advisor to your Business Units’ senior leadership (Global Services). You will  work collaboratively with them to drive organizational effectiveness and a high performance culture, building and implementing the people strategy that enables their business objectives. This will also involve brokering relevant services from our corporate HR team to support your & your Business Unit. 

In addition, you will:

  • Develop deep, trusting partnerships with your Business Units’ senior leadership, and develop them through coaching, advising and training initiatives.
  • Own talent management for your Business Unit - from evaluation cycles, to identifying top talent, to career pathing and succession planning, to effective performance management
  • Leverage data to monitor and diagnose problems at their root. Conduct hands-on analyses when necessary. Own turnover. 
  • Represent your Business Units’ interests and concerns when collaborating with corporate HR, and you will lead the implementation of corporate programs, policies and initiatives with a focus on change management within your Business Unit.
  • Directly contribute to, as well as lead certain transformational, cross-departmental projects. 
  • Uphold our compensation philosophy and ensure internal equity. 

Can you live and breathe the Coveo Culture?

You will join us because you are thrilled by the significant HR challenges that come with hyper-growth in the tech industry. You will be struck by our culture, and you will quickly become one of its top evangelists. Above everything, it’s the empowerment we’ll give you and the footprint of your projects that will make you genuinely happy.

If that sounds good to you, here’s what we’re looking for!

  • Proven track record as a senior HR professional. Bringing in value as a successful business partner is second nature for you.
  • Experience working in an enterprise or growing organization. You’re not scared to get your hands dirty and get scrappy when needed!
  • Excel at developing deep, trusting relationships with senior leadership. 
  • Your good judgment and your ability to effectively diagnose problems are your strongest assets. You want to build, not simply apply what already exists.
  • Be self-driven, open-minded, flexible and creative. 
  • You are a strong, tactful communicator in both English and French. This will be key to communicate with your customer groups across North America and Europe.
  • You ride the careful balance of accommodation but with a backbone
