Job Description

About Altera:

Altera, an Intel Company, empowers customers to unlock the full potential of data through cutting-edge programmable platforms. Intel Corporation announced its intent to separate its Altera operations into a standalone business. This will give Altera the autonomy and flexibility it needs to fully accelerate its growth and more effectively compete in the FPGA industry, which serves a broad array of markets, including the data center, communications, industrial, automotive, aerospace and defense sectors.

About the Role:

Altera is looking for a Head of Benefits to join our Human Resources team and oversee the design, development, implementation, and communication of our benefits policies, solutions, and programs. You will manage the Benefits team and partner with the leadership to create and implement a benefits program that is competitive, aligned with our company strategy, and compliant with the law. You will also lead the development and delivery of effective and engaging benefits training and communications strategies to improve employee satisfaction and retention.

In Q4 2023, Intel announced Altera will be reported as a separate business unit beginning on January 1, 2024 with ongoing support from Intel. This position is associated to that standalone business strategy and is expected to fully transition to a standalone company at some time in the future.

  • Lead the design, implementation, and administration of benefit programs, including medical, dental, disability, life insurance, employee assistance, retirement, and other plans.

  • Support and help create content and seamless experiences for new hire benefit orientations and enrollments to ensure employees understand their total benefits and make informed decisions around these offerings.

  • Oversee the review, communication, and implementation of the annual benefit programs enrollment process and the annual total rewards review.

  • Lead benefit governance oversights and act as the lead fiduciary and/or stakeholder for critical employee and plan sponsor decisions.

  • Lead employee experience efforts and help support benefit change management programs.

  • Responsible for enabling teams to execute through clear goal setting, facilitating work, maintaining accountability, applying differentiated performance management, and driving team results.


  • Bachelor's degree in Human Resources, Business Administration, or a related field.

  • At least five years of experience in benefits administration, design, or consulting.

  • Strong knowledge of benefits regulations, best practices, and trends.

  • Excellent communication, leadership, and analytical skills.

  • Ability to manage multiple projects, collaborate with internal and external stakeholders, and drive results in a fast-paced environment.

  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office and benefits software.

  • Certified Employee Benefits Specialist (CEBS) or Certified Benefits Professional (CBP) certification is a plus.
