We are both a space company and data company all rolled into one.

Planet is a global company with employees working remotely world wide and joining us from offices in San Francisco, Washington DC, Germany, and The Netherlands.

About the Role:

Planet is looking for a compliance-driven, detail-oriented individual to join the People Operations team. This person will play an important role in ensuring Planet’s compliance with US federal, state, and local regulations, as well as designing policies and processes to scale with our changing organization.

While primarily focused on US compliance, this person will also be involved in global compliance and other areas of People Operations as needed.

Impact You’ll Own:

  • Ensure compliance with US federal, state, and local labor laws through proactive auditing, monitoring changes in regulations, and designing scalable processes for continuous compliance
  • Prepare and submit annual regulatory reports such as EEO-1, California Pay Data, VETS-4212, and Affirmative Action Plan
  • Partner cross-functionally with Talent/Recruiting, People Business Partners, Finance, Legal, and other teams to identify compliance issues and create/implement processes and policies to mitigate risk
  • Proactively monitor employee data in Planet’s HRIS and identify areas of risk – e.g., employee misclassification, FLSA exemption status changes, I-9 documentation, etc., and proactively keep Planet’s intranet updated with the most recent labor law notices and information
  • Prepare and submit semi-monthly payroll changes and relevant SOX documentation
  • Own the roll-out and monitoring of HR compliance-related training, such as anti-harassment and bystander training

What You Bring:

  • 3+ years of experience in a related HR/People Operations role that directly handled compliance with US labor law and regulations, including California-specific regulations
  • Exceptional attention to detail, organizational skills, and process adherence
  • Excellent Microsoft Excel and/or Google Sheet skills and a data-oriented mindset
  • Ability to effectively communicate complex compliance information to a wide variety of stakeholders
  • Experience drafting and implementing HR policies and programs

What Makes You Stand Out:

  • Previous hands-on HR experience at a public company, federal contractor, and/or global company
  • Administrative or reporting knowledge of BambooHR and enterprise-level HR systems
  • Experience in other areas of HR such as recruiting, employee relations, HRBP, or HRIS
  • Experience with ticketing systems such as JIRA
  • HR certification such as PHR or SHRM-CP

Benefits While Working at Planet:

  • Comprehensive Health Plan
  • Wellness program and onsite massages in specific offices
  • Flexible Time Off
  • Recognition Programs
  • Commuter Benefits
  • Learning and Tuition Reimbursement
  • Parental Leave
  • Offsites and Happy Hours
