Trimble has an exciting Human Resources Manager opportunity
available in our Civil Engineering and Construction business. This
business is a vibrant and critical part of Trimble's overall
portfolio, where we are exploring new horizons; building new
organizations; and learning new things. We work together
internationally; enjoy an informal work environment; and
collaborate with team members who are committed to getting results.
This role will report to the CEC HR Director.
This is an individual contributor position that requires senior
level business partnering experience; strategic-level thinking; and
hands-on problem-solving. If this sounds like you, then you are not
afraid to step into the challenge of a complex, matrixed
international organization. You've had experience in a technology
product and solutions development business -- preferably software
and hardware; direct and channel sales; product management and
operations. You know what it takes to integrate and support
mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures. You have a reputation for
building strong rapport with business leaders and employees alike;
establishing credibility and trust quickly; professionally
resolving difficult people and organizational issues; efficiently
and accurately attending to the day-to-day processes and details;
and meeting the varied needs that arise in a fast-paced, nuanced,
and often ambiguous environment. You are someone who thinks
strategically and acts tactically. You want to join a team that
does what it takes to get the job done -- whenever and wherever our
knowledge, judgment, expertise, or just plain task completion is
required. You work hard, and have a sense of accomplishment in your
contributions. If this sounds like you, please let us know. We'd
like to get to know you.
