Mill is all about answering a simple question: how can we prevent waste? Less waste can save time, money, energy, maybe even our planet. And there’s no better place to start than food. Food waste is one of the most solvable climate problems facing us today. Plus, our trash really stinks. It’s gross, heavy, and our least favorite chore. At Mill we are striving to build a better environment for all, as we take on climate and kitchen change.

At Mill, we know that happy employees lead to increased productivity, better results, and sustainable, long-term organizational growth. We’re looking for a People Business Partner to lead & develop our people-focused programs, and implement policies and practices to improve and scale our employee experience and support our culture. Our ideal candidate will have experience with fast-growing companies, a passion for building and evolving talented & diverse teams, an ability to use data to inform and innovate decisions about our people programs and experience managing and expanding the fundamentals of a great employee experience, including: onboarding, benefits & compensation, org design that fuels great business and enabling career growth for our teams.

You will thrive in a mission driven company, value a feedback-focused environment, have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and the ability to manage through conflict. Given our size, and stage of growth you will have the ability to pivot quickly and handle ambiguity.

As the People Business Partner you will:
- Provide strategic partnership and counsel to the leadership team on all things people-related.
- Ensure everything we do in the People Team supports our mission, and our culture.
- Develop, implement & evolve employee processes and procedures, while addressing engagement, retention and career growth needs.

- Continuously seek to identify, improve, and automate workflows to improve the management and accessibility of key analytical data that informs our people programs
- Exercise discretion while working with highly confidential information
- Be an ambassador for our culture and our company

Ideally you will have:
- Bachelor’s degree
- Employment Law Degree
- 5+ years in people operations
- Experience using data to inform people programming and decision-making
- Exceptional communication skills, writing skills, interpersonal skills, and ethical mindset
- Extensive knowledge of HR policies and systems
