Medallia is the pioneer and market leader in Experience Management. Our award-winning SaaS platform, Medallia Experience Cloud, leads the market in the understanding and management of experience for candidates, customers, employees, patients, citizens and residents.

Our Team

The Medallia People and Culture (P&C) team speaks directly to its name. The company’s cultivator of talent, champion of development, and safekeeper of culture, People and Culture defines Medallia both as a brand and employer. Inspired to find and bring out the best, we’re responsible for our people processes: recruitment, hiring, onboarding, benefits, performance management and growth, and support during life-changing moments.

The Role

In this role, you will support functionally aligned teams including Engineering and Product Management, in partnership with the PnC Leader. You will serve as the primary P&C point of contact for early to mid-career Medallians and managers. At Medallia, the HR Business Partner team solves complex organizational challenges with a people lens; the emphasis is equal on each word in the title: 

HR - You’ll apply a people lens to complex organizational and business challenges. 

Business - Your business acumen will set you apart from the crowd.   

Partner - While you’re a core member of the People and Culture team, you’ll work so closely with your key business groups that they value you as part of their team. 

To be successful, you’ll need to challenge the status quo, push your partners to be great, and use data in addition to your laser sharp people instincts to drive decisions.  As a core part of this role, you will be delivering critical people programs including compensation, performance and development. Across these programs, you will work to create structured and objective processes, and an environment where all Medallians feel a sense of belonging.
