I’m Mary Jantsch, Head of Talent and Partner Success at Elpha.
I began my career in tech as an early member of the Buffer team. As I learned the in’s-and-out’s of customer experience, I was also learning the value of remote work, transparent salaries, and creating a more human workplace. As I started the People team at Buffer, my obsession with People Ops and Talent also began and followed me through roles at Hipcamp, Tuff, a year-long consulting stint, Nextmv and, now, Elpha.
Head of Talent and Partner Success means I get to work with both job seekers and Elpha partner companies to navigate the hiring process. I’m really excited about what we’re building with the Elpha Talent Pool because of the opportunity to take a stressful, time consuming process and make it better for everyone involved.
Something I am great at: starting new functions at an early-stage startup.
Something I am working on: defaulting to self-deprecation when talking about myself (I removed a lot of ‘I think’s’ from my first draft of this! 😂)
Ask me anything about navigating your career, the Elpha Talent Pool, hiring, employer brand, transparent compensation, remote work, scaling People Ops + Talent, how to have hard conversations, what ingredients are most important in a breakfast burrito, or anything else!
