Job Description

Here at Hugging Face, we’re on a journey to advance good Machine Learning and make it more accessible. Along the way, we contribute to the development of technology for the better.

We raised our Series C in May 2022 and are quickly growing our global team. We've gone from 30 team members early this year to 70 in November; we’re aiming for 100 in early 2022 and 200 by year-end. Our offices are in NYC and Paris but we have teammates worldwide. As a fast-growing early-stage startup, we are looking for team players with a generalist mindset and strong domain expertise to help us build the category-defining platform for ML.

What you’ll be doing

As our VP of People, you will be integral in building the foundation of our global HR function and have a key role in supporting the company as we scale. You will directly shape our culture and drive the growth, development, and retention of Hugging Face’s outstanding global team. You will own our end-to-end employee experience globally, partner with leadership on our People strategy, lead and design initiatives that support our team, create a culture that reflects and amplifies our values, and help us scale during this exciting period of growth. Areas of accountability and ownership include: creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture; talent acquisition & onboarding; engagement and retention; compensation and benefits; learning & development; global HR compliance; performance management; and more.

Who you are

You’ll enjoy working with us if you think strategically but have the capacity to be nimble, pragmatic, and creative to solve problems. You should love building from the ground up and have proven senior experience in the HR field at an early stage, high-growth tech company. You have a high level of accountability and a strong bias for action, impact, and execution with a no ego and no-job-too-small mentality.
