THE ROLE: Human Resources Generalist

You will serve as an HR anchor, the first point of contact, serving Associates across our corporate offices as well as those working remotely, with a broad range of HR disciplines – onboarding, benefits, employee relations as well as corporate-wide HR programs and initiatives.

You’ll build trusting partnerships with both early career associates and the leadership teams across many different business units - technology, merchandising, marketing to name a few.  While most of your time will be spent in execution mode, you will have many opportunities to contribute to our People strategy as well.

The People Team has a “get it done” team attitude that enables each of us to tap into our entrepreneurial spirit to fuel our amazing growth.  We change every day, so you’ll need to successfully operate in the “gray”.  If you need to operate within tight restrictions and burdensome processes, this is not a role for you.  We’re a People team that likes to fend off bureaucracy and keep things simple!

What You’ll Do:

Your core responsibility will be serving as the eyes and ears on the ground to participate in HR departmental strategy sessions, bringing creative and innovative ideas to the table surrounding HR process optimization, HR services, retention, and employee programs. On a day-to-day, this translates to:

  • Administrative:
    • Facilitate new hire orientation and manage exit interviews.
    • Administer immigration and visa renewals for newly hired and existing employee populations across the RGG organization nationwide.
  • Employee Engagement:
    • Stay connected to the pulse of the org and help guide HR leaders and business partners to align HR programs with the needs of the team.
    • Drive a strong “local” corporate culture through various activities and events, as well as day-to-day support of Company values

About You:

At Rue Gilt Groupe, diversity enriches our passion, collaboration, kindness and innovation. We’re committed to fostering an inclusive environment where every Associate is empowered to learn, grow and bring their full self to work. Even if you don't check off every qualification in the job description, that's okay. We encourage you to apply to any role that excites you and sparks delight! We can't wait to learn more about you.

  • You have a natural sense of curiosity, a knack for systems, and you thrive on learning new things.
  • You’re comfortable wearing many hats, managing competing priorities, and have an innate ability to think fast on your feet to pivot and roll with the punches. 
  • You’re a relationship builder, connecting easily with team members regardless of level or where they primarily sit.
  • Maybe you have a Bachelor’s degree, maybe you don’t, but you have served in an HR capacity where you have learned HR fundamentals around employment law, employee engagement, performance management, general business acumen… and are eager to expand your HR knowledge base and learn from a strong team of HR practitioners.

At Rue Gilt Groupe, diversity enriches our passion, collaboration, kindness and innovation.

An Insider's view of Rue Gilt Groupe

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I really appreciate Rue Gilt Groupe’s work-life balance. Our marketing team norms include limiting lunchtime meetings and after-hours emails, so there’s a distinction between work and personal time. Additionally, RGG’s flexible time-off policy and Summer Fridays mean Associates can take vacation, sick, and personal days as they want or need to.

Cade

Senior Analyst, Digital Marketing

What projects are you most excited about?

As a new Rue Gilt Groupe team member, I am really excited to partner with associates and business leaders to take Rue Gilt Groupe's DEI initiatives to the next level!

Dante

Director, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Three promotions & six years later, I went from a UX Product Designer to a Group Product Manager building personalization products as part of the Data Science team. Going from Design to Data Science is not a typical path, it took hard work, but the genuine & consistent support from cross-functional leaders opened the doors to new opportunities.

Joelle

Group Product Manager, Data Science

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

The Customer Service team is in the best position to hear what Members want from us, what we can do better and how we can continue to delight them. We listen to their feedback and share that with the rest of the company to continuously improve user experience. By putting the Member first, these insights help all of us collaborate effectively.

Maria

VP, Customer Service

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

With our business model of limited-time pop-up shops, we experience bursts of high-volume traffic multiple times a day on our websites and mobile apps. We’re making ambitious changes to our tech stack to further scale and modernize while maintaining a fun (and stable!) shopping experience for our Members. It’s a unique and exciting challenge!”
