Circle is a financial technology company at the epicenter of the emerging internet of money, where value can finally travel like other digital data — globally, nearly instantly and less expensively than legacy settlement systems. This ground-breaking new internet layer opens up previously unimaginable possibilities for payments, commerce and markets that can help raise global economic prosperity and enhance inclusion. Our infrastructure – including USDC, a blockchain-based dollar – helps businesses, institutions and developers harness these breakthroughs and capitalize on this major turning point in the evolution of money and technology.

What you’ll be part of:

Circle is committed to visibility and stability in everything we do. As we grow as an organization, we're expanding into some of the world's strongest jurisdictions. Speed and efficiency are motivators for our success and our employees live by our company values: Multistakeholder, Mindfulness, Driven by Excellence and High Integrity. Circlers are consistently evolving in a remote world where strength in numbers fuels team success. We have built a flexible and diverse work environment where new ideas are encouraged and everyone is a stakeholder.

What you’ll be responsible for:

We are looking for a driven, self-motivated HR Business Partner to work closely across the EMEA and LATAM region at Circle. In this role, you will support business leaders and the broader Talent Business Partnership team with both a people-forward and data driven approach as they build their organisations to scale. The range of partnership will cover how they lead and develop their teams, how they tackle complex organisational challenges that arise as we scale, how to navigate employee relations issues, and how we empower and retain the top talent that we have attracted and developed.

What you'll work on:

  • Partner with business leaders and various functional teams on strategic and operational execution including onboarding, team effectiveness, change management, organisational design, performance management, retention, engagement, talent planning, professional growth and more.

  • Support the development of HR policies, practices, process, programs and ensure their compliance with local labour laws and regulations.
  • Act as a trusted advisor, providing guidance on all aspects of HR to managers and employees.
  • Ensure that functional managers have the "pulse of the company" to make proactive and impactful organisation decisions.
  • Promote a positive work environment (e.g., engagement action planning), employee experience, and a culture of inclusivity and diversity.
  • Provide coaching and feedback to employees at all levels to empower their development and drive high performance, whilst partnering with leaders to implement effective performance management processes, including goal setting and performance evaluations.
  • Foster networking and collaboration with HRBP partners across America and APAC regions; share standard processes and local business updates for broader application.
  • Leverage the Centers of Excellence to develop fully integrated programs that enhance employee engagement and employee retention in a sustainable and scalable manner.
  • Facilitate smooth onboarding and offboarding processes.
  • Provide insights and recommendations that contribute to the Circle vision through effective business partnering, innovation, and execution.

You will aspire to our four core values:

  • Multistakeholder - you have dedication and commitment to our customers, shareholders, employees and families and local communities.
  • Mindful - you seek to be respectful, an active listener and to pay attention to detail.
  • Driven by Excellence - you are driven by our mission and our passion for customer success which means you relentlessly pursue excellence, that you do not tolerate mediocrity and you work intensely to achieve your goals.
  • High Integrity - you seek open and honest communication, and you hold yourself to very high moral and ethical standards. You reject manipulation, dishonesty and intolerance.

What you’ll bring to Circle:

  • Solid understanding of labour laws and employment regulations within the EMEA and LATAM regions
  • Demonstrated competence in employee relations, plus various HR functional areas: management coaching, employee engagement/experience, change management, organisational development, and policy development.
  • 4+ years experience as a HR business Partner working in a fast paced global and multicultural environment
  • Must be bilingual, with either Spanish, Portuguese or French as a second language
  • Proven experience developing trusted relationships at all levels of an organisation including senior level talent to drive programs.
