Affirm is reinventing credit to make it more honest and friendly, giving consumers the flexibility to buy now and pay later without any hidden fees or compounding interest.

We’re looking for a passionate innovator to take our People Organizational Success team to the next level.

You’ll be equal parts organizational expert, learning visionary, and performance guru.

You recognize the need to elevate Affirm’s organizational, team, and people effectiveness and impact in a remote first, hybrid work environment and are eager to create a “beyond best practice” global approach to the work.

Reporting to the Senior Director, People Business Partners Success, and as a key member of the People Leadership Team, this high-visibility role will drive strategic company-wide programs and initiatives that have a real impact on advancing Affirm’s trajectory and success.

  • Develop and implement a Talent Review and Succession Planning framework to identify and develop high-potential employees and leaders for key roles and increase leadership bench strength and capability across all levels of the organization

  • Oversee the redesign and optimization of Affirm’s performance management philosophy, strategy, and processes. This will include a focus on goal setting, feedback, individual and team development and, in partnership with Total Rewards, alignment to rewards and promotions

  • Embed a consistent behavioral framework across talent review, performance management, succession planning and promotions

  • Work with the People Analytics team to determine appropriate talent metrics to measure progress and impact of programs and initiatives. Own the design and sharing of insights to executives and across the company

  • Build and develop a People Organizational Success team that is productive, effective, engaged and thriving
