Paxos is on a mission to enable the movement of any asset, any time, in a trustworthy way. Today’s financial infrastructure is archaic, expensive, inefficient and risky - supporting a system that leaves out more people than it lets in. So we’re rebuilding it.

As a regulated blockchain infrastructure company, we use technology to tokenize, custody, trade, and settle assets for enterprise clients like PayPal, Novi, Bank of America, and Interactive Brokers. Paxos is a top-funded blockchain company, with more than $500 million in total funding from leading investors like OakHC/FT, Founders Fund, PayPal Ventures, and Declaration Partners. Together, we empower today’s financial leaders to build a more open, trusted economy.

The People/HR Business Partner is the intersection between the business and People Team – from talent attraction, to new hire onboarding, to manager effectiveness, and employee engagement and retention, you are focused on ensuring we ship great people experiences every single day. You'll be an advocate of Paxos’ core values, partnering with our business leaders to help them build their organizations and leverage data to inform and guide great people decisions. You own ‘raising the bar.’ Through partnership with the broader People Team and your business partners, you will design and execute inbound and outbound talent strategies and programs that excite top talent to work at Paxos.
