Now Brewing – benefits manager! #tobeapartner 

From the beginning, Starbucks set out to be a different kind of company. One that not only celebrated coffee and the rich tradition, but that also brought a feeling of connection. We are known for developing extraordinary leaders who share this passion and are guided by their service to others.

If you have a passion for leading, developing and delivering innovative technology solutions and you are passionate about benefits, we have a unique opportunity to be part of helping Starbucks continue to offer the best benefits in retail! This role will work closely with partners, leaders, and benefits vendors to create and deliver strategic and innovative solutions.

  • Directly manage and support the ongoing development of a team of benefits technology professionals

We’d love to hear from people with:

  • Successful record of innovative thinking, execution, and management of programs and projects with a proven ability to design workable solutions, manage multiple initiatives simultaneously, prioritize workload, meet deadlines, and drive results
  • Deep knowledge of HRIS platforms such as SAP
  • Ability to work with a high degree of autonomy through ambiguous circumstances 
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills and ability to build relationships and influence different levels within the organization and in vendor relationships

As a Starbucks partner, you (and your family) will have access to medical, dental, vision, basic and supplemental life insurance, and other voluntary insurance benefits. Partners have access to short-term and long-term disability, paid parental leave, family expansion reimbursement, paid vacation from date of hire*, sick time (accrued at 1 hour for every 25 hours worked), eight paid holidays, and two personal days per year. Starbucks also offers eligible partners participation in a 401(k) retirement plan with employer match, a discounted company stock program (S.I.P.), Starbucks equity program (Bean Stock), incentivized emergency savings, and financial well-being tools.  

Additionally, Starbucks offers 100% upfront tuition coverage for a first-time bachelor’s degree through Arizona State University’s online program via the Starbucks College Achievement Plan, student loan management resources, and access to other educational opportunities.  You will also have access to backup care and DACA reimbursement. 

Starbucks will comply with any applicable state and local laws regarding employee leave benefits, including, but not limited to providing time off pursuant to the Colorado Healthy Families and Workplaces Act, and in accordance with its plans and policies.
