People Operations Manager

Thirdlove Los Angeles, CA

Who We Are

ThirdLove disrupted the lingerie industry by empowering women to find their perfect fit online with our innovative Fitting Room® quiz and is one of the original brands to operate 100% direct-to-consumer. All design and R&D is done in-house, and our extensive and complex supply chain is fully managed by our team. Inclusivity is at the core of who we are and how we serve our customers and build our teams.

Traditionally, women were given a choice between two options when it came to their bras and underwear: Be sexy, or be comfortable. Our Cofounders: Dave Spector, Heidi Zak, and Ra’el Cohen, thought that was outdated too — so, in 2013, they created ThirdLove — a third, better option, which doesn’t force us to choose between being sexy or comfortable. 

What Our Team Embodies

Our culture is collaborative, fast-paced, and data-driven, and we were most recently recognized with the Great Place to Work certification. This recognition is given to a very small percentage of companies who apply for it and determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation demonstrates to us that our teammates at ThirdLove are inspired by our mission, engaged in their everyday work, and enjoy partnering with our teammates and customers. If you want to impact millions of people, find your fit, and propel your career forward, we’d love to hear from you.

ThirdLove's People Operations Manager role is a newly created, hands-on role that focuses on scaling our tools, resources, and processes for our growing and geographically dispersed population. You'll ensure our people have the systems and knowledge to support onboarding, employment changes, immigration, benefits, learning and development, review cycles, and more.

  • Partner with business leaders and the People team members and others across the business to understand the needs of the manager population. Take ownership of identifying opportunities, tackling challenging or difficult tasks and seeking to drive improvement.
