  • A hands-on approach to discussing matters such as well-being, feedback, sick leave, vacations, benefit policies etc. directly with your coworkers. 
  • Experience with and understanding of US and Canadian labor laws, employee benefits, and related policies, practices, and compliance requirements.
  • Experience in developing and administering HR programs and initiatives in cooperation with internal and/or external stakeholders.

We are looking for a team player who is able to support our people with a warm but determined mindset. Whether you are working on onboarding, having discussions about your colleague’s well-being or supporting your colleague in finding a role that best matches them, you are actively looking for the best solution for both the person and the company. 

Ideally, you have experience with different kinds of difficult conversations, and you are able to use your emotional intelligence to ensure that the message is presented with a lot of empathy, while also keeping our business needs close to mind.

If reading this gave you butterflies, we hope you apply, no matter what your path here was. We hope you can join our community and help us build a company where everyone can feel proud to belong. Tell us about your past projects involving employee well-being or situations handling difficult conversations with fellow employees, and let us know what you'd love to do in the future. Keep it original rather than official.
