You need to be able to ask the right questions, pull accurate data, and articulate your results by creating a visual story of data and graphics for the People Team and executive-level leaders.

People see you as a trusted advisor, a helpful resource, who delivers results quickly and accurately.
  • Solve problems as you see them.

Data accuracy is non-negotiable and you will be our system administrator. We will rely on you to bring in your expert knowledge and help improve our people processes. Since we support our people, work can come from multiple departments. Since it is fast-paced, it is easy to lose sight of the small details, but that is where the magic is at. With ruthless prioritization, we focus on getting things done quickly and flawlessly. Of course, we are not perfect, so when mistakes are made, we step up, take responsibility, and issue meaningful apologies when we are wrong.

We act not only as a confidant, but as an advisor, shining light on things we see, helping navigate murky waters, and providing candid (caring deeply, communicating directly) feedback to help every employee become the best version of themselves. #realtalk

  • Listen to you. We need your thoughts, ideas, and passion to help make this the best team in sports. You talk, we’ll listen. 
  • Treat you like an adult. We will trust you to get the work done in a way that makes sense for you. We measure output, not desk time.
