HR Business Partner: Corporate Functions

San Francisco, CA

Who We Are

Twitter…the best place you have ever worked. Ever. As a company, we strive to make a difference in the world, do the best work, and have fun while doing it. If that sounds like your kind of company, keep reading.


We currently have an opening for an HR Business Partner. In this role, you’ll be working with the HR Business Partners across the Corporate Functions to help deliver exceptional support to our clients.

You’ll partner closely with your HR colleagues to understand what already exists for you to leverage and what you can create based on business needs.   


Success in this role looks like this:  

Establish yourself as an indispensable go-to partner with help from HR peers across the globe. Become comfortable owning front-line intake with managers and ICs alike, and independently drive HR issues through to resolution. Help the HRBP team implement all aspects of a strategic people plan.

Build strong, respectful relationships. Help influence the right outcomes for the business, and elevate Twitter’s employment brand and unique culture.
