Company Description

About Tradeshift

Tradeshift is a unicorn in the fintech industry. We are disrupting a typically stagnant environment by connecting companies of all sizes and providing them with the platform and network needed to create value from old processes like procurement, invoicing, payments, and workflow. We recognize that business is both messy and social - two revelations that have driven the development of Tradeshift, a platform for all your business interactions. We work hard and our teams have great freedom and responsibility to choose the best solutions, technologies and approaches to evolve the product to the next level.

We believe that being a global, multicultural company is a tremendous strength and we have people working from 18 different countries with hubs in Bucharest, Copenhagen, Kuala Lumpur, and San Francisco. We believe that if we truly focus on how to work distributed and collaborate across locations and (home) offices, we will not only enjoy work more but also build better products for our customers, and ultimately be a better company.

Job Description

Why Lead Total Rewards at Tradeshift?

This isn’t going to be your typical “total rewards” job. Sure, we want you to take a data-driven and innovative approach to design effective and culturally aligned and compelling compensation and benefits. We also want you to design and implement a wide range of effective total rewards practices, recognition vehicles, and “workplace” of the future resources and perks.

But this role is much more than that. Your passion and curiosity will help us figure out how to design a “pay-for-performance” framework in a world where managers would rather rate restaurants than people. You will also help us build and drive genuine sustained engagement with top talent in super-competitive and diverse markets globally (we’re in a lot of countries and cultures) through different programs and tools that put our employees wellbeing first. You’ve been around the total rewards block once or twice but you aspire to make your block much bigger and richer (pun intended) and stretch yourself to do the best work of your career.

  • Translate Tradeshift’s strategic priorities into a plan for engaging and rewarding great talent and coordinating People programs that empower Tradeshifter’s to do their best work.

  • Key partners will include but not limited to People business partners, recruiters, People Ops, Finance, Sales Ops, and Legal. You''ll need to be flexible logistically and culturally as your partners are spread across the globe.
  • Leverage and manage our benefits broker and self-help resources (which of course, you’ll be incentivized to improve) while still ensuring high levels of employee/customer delight.
