Job Description

About foursquare:

foursquare helps you and your friends make the most of where you are. We're a small but highly ambitious company with millions of users worldwide relying on foursquare to keep up with friends, discover what's nearby, save money and unlock deals.  We’re also helping over a million registered merchants ranging from local businesses to global brands connect with their customers. 

To thrive as a member of team foursquare, you must embrace our exciting work-hard, play-hard environment. We're a closely-knit team and, especially at the end of a long day over beers, we feel like we're inventing the future together.

About the role:

We are designing a new way of thinking about human resources, training and development. Rather than having your typical recruiters, sourcers, and HR business partners, we are building a team of talent professionals that work across all of these functions to provide a strategic support system for the managers and employees of foursquare.

This next addition to our team, a Talent Programs Manager, will define, build, and implement much needed programs focused on internal talent development - management training, advanced skills training, performance evaluations, compensation analysis, organizational design, and much more. The Talent Programs Manager will partner closely with the rest of the talent team to identify the company’s needs, make recommendations, and ensure smooth execution across the entire organization.

This position will be based at our New York headquarters in SoHo. We offer a competitive compensation package including full benefits and equity options for everyone.

    • ​Training programs

  • ​Strong public speaking and communication skills
  • Comfortable leading large training sessions and workshops
  • A knack for developing eye-catching and engaging presentations (if you have samples from previous roles, we would love to see them!)
  • Comfortable in a small, intense, and high-growth startup environment
