HR Business Partner



People & HR
Toronto, ON, Canada
Posted on Tuesday, April 16, 2024
We’re LumiQ – an audio-first professional education platform for CPAs. We help CPAs get their continuing professional development (CPD) hours through engaging podcasts with business leaders (the CFOs of Slack, Shopify, Yelp, Yahoo!, TD Bank, and Wealthsimple just to name a few). CPD/CPE is the yearly required learning that CPAs generally dread doing. They’re tired of dealing with boring webinars, irrelevant content and product experiences that are out-of-date. That’s why they’ve flocked to LumiQ and our mission to make professional learning enjoyable.
With 600+ companies signed up, and 300% YoY growth, we’re at the precipice of launching a global movement that’s going to massively change the professional education and podcasting industries. We’ve also recently expanded into the US market and we’re seeing wonderful early signs of traction.
LumiQ is experiencing rapid growth as you might expect from a startup at our stage, but we tend not to subscribe to the mantra of “move fast and break things.” Our goal is to build a profitable company where our employees can learn and grow, and where customers see real value and genuinely enjoy using the product. We are building a company meant to last, and if this resonates with you, we hope you will consider joining us on our journey to transform professional education!
We are looking for an HR Business Partner to help support our team and lead key HR initiatives as our organization grows. This role will help shape the future of the company, drive impactful employee initiatives, and foster a culture of high performance, learning and success. The ideal fit will have solid experience and understanding of HR best practices and employee management.


  • We have a tremendous group of people managers, both new and experienced. This role will spend a lot of time collaborating with them to provide guidance, support, and advice. This calls for an empathetic, curious, and seasoned HRBP who isn’t afraid to ask questions or get into the weeds.
  • We love promoting from within, which means we have a lot of first time managers as our org structure grows with the company. This role will spend time coaching these newer managers on how best to support their team’s performance and development. The right candidate feels confident developing and running this type of training, and working with managers who may be struggling having hard conversations.
  • We are growing extremely fast– and with that, comes the need to build and update our processes to continue to work for our stage and size. This role will lead core HR processes such as performance management, employee engagement, and culture and retention initiatives.
  • We will be doing a lot of hiring over the coming months. While this role will not fully own recruitment, you should expect to work closely with hiring managers to help determine skill gaps on their teams and assist in building effective recruitment strategies.
  • Depending on the time of year (we tend to hire a lot at the start of our fiscal year) you may be called to help with recruitment efforts, including job postings, candidate sourcing, and interview coordination.
  • Building a culture of continuous learning is important to us as LumiQ. This role will work closely with the Director of People Ops to run internal and external trainings and sessions focused on employee learning and development.
  • We try to make as many decisions as we can using data. The HRBP will be able to confidently analyze employee related data to guide decision-making to provide recommendations and solution.
  • Some other areas we are looking for you to feel comfortable sharing your knowledge and expertise in include employee relations, compensation, and organizational development.


  • 3-5 years of experience as a HR Business Partner or equivalent.
  • 2+ years experience working in Talent Acquisition.
  • Strong understanding of Employment Standards in Ontario.
  • Good grasp of HRM techniques and excellent people management skills.
  • Familiarly with a variety of HR analytics techniques.
  • Ability to set up and track relevant metrics and KPIs.
  • Strong HR skills, but also a deep understanding of the business.
  • Previous experience working in the Tech space, supporting SaaS companies.
If you think your experience is most of the way there we’d still love to meet you!
