About Grammarly

Grammarly’s digital writing assistant helps more than 20 million people write more clearly and effectively every day. In building a product that scales across multiple platforms and devices, Grammarly works to empower users whenever and wherever they communicate.

Job Description

Grammarly offers a remote-first hybrid working model. Team members can work primarily remotely. Teams will meet in person every quarter in one of Grammarly’s hubs, currently in San Francisco, Vancouver, New York, and Kyiv. To ensure that teams are able to overlap in their working hours and to meet face-to-face when needed, all team members need to live within three time zones of their direct team.

Grammarly team members who will be collaborating at our Kyiv hub must be based in Ukraine.

The opportunity 

Grammarly empowers people to thrive and connect, whenever and wherever they communicate. Every day, 30 million people around the world use our AI-powered writing assistant. All of this begins with our team collaborating in a values-driven and learning-oriented environment. 

To achieve our ambitious goals, we’re looking for a People Operations Lead to join our People team. The People Operations Lead is responsible for creating the supportive infrastructure of data, systems, and processes to lead People Operations projects and implementation for the Grammarly Kyiv hub. This role will be responsible for shaping and aligning Grammarly’s processes and policies to our EAGER values and culture in order to support our outstanding talent. The People Operations Lead will build solutions to scale, creating the infrastructure to support Grammarly’s expanding People team.

Your impact

As Grammarly grows quickly, there is a huge opportunity to revisit the systems, processes, and policies currently in place to ensure they will work effectively at scale. As People Operations Lead, you will review and update systems to support future growth and collaborate with the IT, Finance, GRC, and Security teams to implement the automation that will allow People Operations to stay effective, reduce manual routine work, and support the necessary level of reporting for certifications and compliance.

  • Identify areas for automation and implement processes that will require minimal manual work.
  • Prioritize People Operations systems, tools, policies, and compliance for 2022.
