  • Has excellent communication skills including presentation and facilitation skills and an ability to build trusted advisor relationships with all levels of management, external partners, and cross-functional stakeholders.
  • Has excellent project management and change management skills and methodology and deep experience with numerous coaching models; certification in proven leadership assessments and development programs a plus.

As the Talent Management Sr. Manager, you will:

  • Make it a priority to understand business needs and partner with senior leaders and HRBPs to define and socialize a long term talent strategy and success metrics.
  • Build a trusted advisor relationship with leaders across all levels in the organization, demonstrating strong communication and change management skills
  • Work and collaborate effectively with the global Talent and People team COEs
  • Design and deliver talent review and assessment solutions that drive the growth of Twilions and empower them to do their best work
  • Develop high impact learning and development programs and resources for individual contributors, managers and leaders, including training, digital content and experiential learning that fuels a culture of learning.
  • Own the development and execution of critical enterprise-wide projects or programs that impact the employee experience, growth and retention of Twilions
  • Travel required 25% of the time (if applicable)

The Talent Management team is central to Twilio's continued growth. We work closely with senior leadership and the broader people team to ensure that we have the leadership strength and a healthy, vibrant culture, ultimately enabling every Twilion to do great work and build a phenomenal career. We lead all aspects of the employee lifecycle including onboarding, evaluating, and developing our people and have a significant impact on the overall direction and success of the company.
