People Operations Associate

At Running Tide, we build technologies that allow us to harness the power of the ocean to build a climate positive future.

The ocean is critical to human and planetary health —but ocean health is in rapid and accelerating decline. We believe that we have the responsibility —and ability —to act.

Running Tide is a global ocean health company. Our fast-growing, multidisciplinary teams of world-class scientists, engineers, and maritime operators, design and implement interventions that rebalance Earth’s carbon cycle, decarbonize global supply chains, restore marine ecosystems, and revitalize coastal communities. Our corporate operations, business development, communications, and policy teams support Running Tide’s front-line workers in scaling our interventions to tackle humanity’s most urgent challenges: restoring ocean health and combating climate change.

We are looking for a reliable People Operations Associate to join our team and support the management of day-to-day business operations. In this role, you'll perform administrative tasks, assist other company departments as needed, and ensure smooth daily operations.

As a fast-growing and dynamic organization, we're seeking a highly ambitious individual to help drive us toward a world-class employee experience and to support different business functions with a diverse range of tasks. 

This is a high-visibility role that will work with a wide variety of stakeholders across the team. You will be responsible for a number of things and every day will look different. The ideal candidate is highly organized, collaborative and a self-starter. The People Operations Associate will report to our Business Operations Manager.

You Will:

- Own and participate in various HR-related tasks such as managing on-boarding and off-boarding procedures and overseeing projects across multiple HR functions.
- Facilitate hiring and recruiting processes by coordinating with and supporting hiring managers to prepare job descriptions, screen resumes, interview candidates, and more.
- Coordinate team and office activities, including setting up meetings and brainstorming sessions, coordinating across teams, and planning events to promote our fun and inclusive culture.
- Ensure compliance with Running Tide policies as well as employment laws.
- Assist with managing Running Tide's benefits enrollments, travel planning, company documents, processes, and other workflows.
- Collect and monitor data related to Running Tide and its team members' carbon footprint in Iceland.
- Lead and promote a positive and inclusive culture that aligns with our company's values

You Are (or You Have):

- Highly organized individual with great communication skills (written and verbal)
- Able to “go with the flow” in our fast-paced, fast-growing company and be able to acclimate to the company’s needs as they evolve
- A team player with a positive spirit
- Experienced in developing and running culture initiatives to ensure a high performing distributed (both onsite and remote) workforce
- Bachelor’s degree or equivalent work experience
- A passion for making a significant contribution to the fight against climate change
Our teams operate with utmost persistence. We are tackling the world’s most difficult and important problems, and we are unwavering in our motivation to find a solution. At our core, we are innovators driven to do "more good" rather than "less bad" in the world.

Running Tide is committed to building a diverse team, bringing as many possible perspectives to bear on the unprecedented challenges facing our planet. We are committed to building an inclusive environment where people of all backgrounds can come to do their best work.
