Head of People

Prenda is on a mission to empower learners. We help people run microschools, where small groups of kids meet in a home and own their education. The model is helping light a fire for kids like Mo and many more, and we are just getting started. Imagine a world where kids grow up as empowered learners - they choose to learn, develop their gifts, and apply their passion and grit to solve the world’s big problems.

Our company is obsessed with the mission of empowering learners, we earnestly strive to live our core values and we embrace servant leadership. We are currently a remote team of around 100 FTEs, and we have been investing in a strong culture and great employee experience. The Head of People will own that effort, in addition to providing strategic input on business decisions to the CEO and the other leaders in the company.

The current People team is small, meaning this role will start as a “player-coach” with direct responsibilities and some direct people management. As the company grows, our People Ops function will grow with it, meaning this role will evolve to be leading a growing team.

  • Work with our PEO to provide a seamless pay and benefits experience for employees
  • Create a best-in-class employee experience from recruiting to onboarding to offboarding and the touch points our employees have with the People Group in between
  • Design and oversee our approach to professional learning, including leadership training and leveling up overall employee skills and work practices
  • Support our efforts to ensure inclusion, equity, and diversity considerations are foundational across the company, including both how we operate as a team and how we create experiences for our customers
