About the Role:

Please note candidates must reside in Chicago or Boston areas to be considered

As the HR Manager (Jr. HR Business Partner), you will be instrumental in ensuring we have high performing, engaged teams and be responsible for delivering results. You'll be spend your time partnering with managers in manager and leadership coaching, employee relations and other HR initiatives. You'll touch multiple business lines, and have a significant impact on business outcomes.

You are not afraid to get your hands dirty, and can easily pivot from smaller administrative tasks to high level work. Where you work matters to you; you couldn't be in HR just anywhere but have to be passionate about the product and people in order to feel engaged. You love working with employees at all levels of the organization; you love to assess employee and team needs and make recommendations for appropriate solutions. You are excited at the opportunity to build out new programs and initiatives and make your mark on an organization.

You do not have an ego, you are open to suggestions but have a point of view. While you enjoy bouncing ideas off of your team, you also excel working autonomously. You are driven to see initiatives through from start to finish and love seeing the fruits of your labor in practice. You are flexible and can deal with anything thrown at you at any given moment-this is HR after all! When things are at their most fast faced, that's when you're at your best; you hate to be bored sifting through the ambiguity, reacting calmly but quickly. You are service driven to your clients and see the HR function as a strategic business partner, not the HR police, but you balance thoughtful, risk averse solutions that consider business needs.
