About Baraja

Baraja is changing the world of self-driving cars through the invention of a new type of LiDAR called Spectrum-Scan™ that delivers ultra-high performance at high resolution, even at incredibly far distances. Today, Baraja LiDAR is already deployed in multiple verticals, working with global automotive and industrial partners.

Originally founded in Sydney, Australia, we also have offices in San Francisco, China and Europe. We are funded by Sequoia, Blackbird and Main Sequence Ventures and we are excited to continue growing the team, so if you are looking for a fast-paced, dynamic role in a start-up we are keen to hear from you!

Inside the Job

You’ll be using your IQ, EQ, positivity and growth mindset to get results. Fast. In a business our size (just north of 100 people) there’s nowhere to hide, but if you want to make an impact, be able to measure that with precision, and see yourself as a key inflection point in the business, you’re going to love it here.

On top of all that, you’ll be a willing and skilled collaborator able to get the best out of the people around you and contribute consistently at your best. At Baraja we’re very good listeners, we’re highly empathetic and we’re conscientious - all of which have helped us to iterate and problem solve so quickly and thoroughly with clients.  

About You

Culturally we’re all about learning, building, and growing. Our environment is always inclusive and breeds innovation - we don’t want to just lead; we want to the creating leaders of the future. We're looking for a junior business partner to join our team and help take our teams to the next level. 

You'll be working closely with our People team, team leads and all Barajans, navigate and solve problems, grow, and learn with all Barajans as we progress towards our mission in building an autonomous future.

  • 5 years’ experience in the People & Culture space, ideally experience with supporting technology teams
  • A good understanding of HR programs including performance management, leadership development, talent management, compensation, and employee relations

Be part of a high-performance team

We work toward our goals by being in constant communication in person and through a range of technologies. We also have big ears for feedback from customers to help us continually improve the Baraja experience. We are pretty good at what we do (but not perfect), so you’ll be learning from and working with a top-flight team on a mission to be better every day.

What matters to us

  • Hustle to deliver on hard and meaningful problems - Passion to achieve. Resilience & learning. What's the next challenge?
  • Build the machine that builds the machine - It’s not enough to design amazing products, we need to design the means to manufacture these products, at scale.
  • Develop sustained high performance - Great teams make great things. They also respectfully challenge each other to reach the next milestone.
