Job Description

We are currently looking for a powerhouse Human Resources Manager who is interested in leaving the corporate shackles behind to join our growing company in helping make critical decisions that will help shape the company from a strategic and operational perspective. The right candidate will look and act professionally, but understand that we have a unique work environment, as we are the largest audio, lighting and video production company in Colorado and our equipment and people are working worldwide every day of the year.

The Manager of Human Resources will be a core member of Brown Note’s leadership team. If you’re passionate about HR strategy, building a robust recruitment plan of action and managing day-to-day HR operations, we want you on our team!

Roles and Responsibilities

Big Picture
Brown Note has experienced tremendous growth in the last 5 years, and we don’t expect that momentum to slow any time soon. The right candidate for this position will be a self-starter who is just as comfortable working autonomously as they are with the owners, executive management and the entire staff. This candidate should be culture-focused with the ability to adapt in a high stress fast paced environment, bringing enthusiasm to the office, and the willingness to do whatever it takes while offering up new ideas and programs.

Beyond the daily duties we list below, the Human Resources Manager will set the human capital strategy for the company, helping to build strong pipelines of qualified candidates to our current team. This includes working with our senior leadership on the development and execution of a high-quality internship program, cultivation of our own top talent, as well as attracting and recruiting new members to the Brown Note family.
In addition, we are looking for someone that can help develop, coach and support our leadership team by providing resources and training in areas such as performance management and employee relations. We have the leading experts in the fields of audio, lighting and video on our team and performance management wasn’t always something they learned while on the road with the world’s finest musical acts. The right candidate will understand this and help grow these skills of our leadership team.

• Creation of job descriptions, active recruitment through inquiries made through Brown Note’s website, as well as industry networking;
• Screening and preliminary interviews of most candidates;
• Onboarding of new employees.

• Advises management and employees on HR questions or problems.
• Ensures legal compliance by monitoring and implementing applicable human resource federal and state requirements; conducting investigations; maintaining records; representing the organization at hearings.
