As a hands-on generalist, you’ll be the point of contact for people-related matters within your client group. In your spare time, you’ll help on a variety of small and major HR initiatives that will be fun, challenging, and make a giant impact. In return for hard work and achieving aggressive goals, you’ll get rewarded with more to own, a ton of growth opportunities, and more freedom than you’ve probably ever had.

Working in a lean, results-oriented environment, where you’ll be expected to do more, take on more, and achieve more every year
Having fun in an start-up-y type environment high on transparency, open to new approaches and without a ton of structure
