We’re looking for a Director of HR
Rally is proud of its continued growth since our inception 8 years ago. In the last 2 years, we’ve practically doubled in size. And now we need help sustaining our pride in our company, our culture, and our people. We need a great, unique Director of HR.
Taking its lead from Jim Collins “Good to Great”, Rally truly lives by its core values. For us, our Director of HR would be both an internal and external model and supporter of these values: Create your own reality; Respect people; Make and meet commitments; Give back to the community; Theory-driven decision making; Sustainable work-life balance.
We’re proud of our awards!
Named the Best Company to Work For in Colorado in 2009 and 2010, and ranked the #6 Best Places to Work in the nation from Outside Magazine in 2010, Rally offers a highly collaborative culture and work-life balance that attracts top talent. Our product gets plenty of accolades too, winning four consecutive Jolt Awards (the software industry’s equivalent of the Oscars®) in our category 2006-2009 and recently recognized by industry analyst Forester Research as “offering the best combination of capability and strategy of Agile ALM tools.”
Agile organizations look different
From the start, Rally has prided itself in being a truly Agile organization in the software industry. What does it mean to be a Director of HR in an Agile company? Here are a few characteristics of Agile we value:
- Servant Leadership — our management model takes a page out of the Robert Greenleaf approach to leadership: lead by serving and serve by leading. Our Director of HR must be someone who can sustain this environment, mentor others in it, and create professional development opportunities for growth in this management style.
- Self-Organizing Teams — part of being an organization of servant leaders includes a strong belief in the value of self-organizing teams. We eschew command-and-control style management. Rather, we seek insights from teams and turn to them to guide our solutions that align with our corporate vision.
- Emphasis on Teams — Rally embraces a strong culture of collaboration. For us, that means that we value team accomplishments over individualism or heroism. Our HR Director needs to help us guide employees in the value of team ownership and the intrinsic rewards therein.
- De-emphasis on hierarchy — Finally, in our Agile company, we de-emphasize traditional hierarchical organizational structures. Rally is proud of maintaining a fairly flat organization even as we grow upwards of 250 people.
