HR Manager

Work & Co (work.co) defines and launches the world's most successful digital products and services. With offices in the United States, Brazil and Europe, we've become the go-to partner for IKEA, Lyft, Google, Apple, Epic Games, Mailchimp, Aesop, Etsy, ALDO and many other globally respected companies. As Fast Company noted, our engineering and design teams are “routinely entrusted with creating digital product for companies which rarely approach outside firms.” No time sheets, just fully-dedicated teams. Forrester Research calls our approach “a model to follow.”

Our people are the secret to our award-winning work. The Talent Group is responsible for ensuring that Work & Co maintains its record of attracting and retaining the top talent in the industry. As a main point of contact for employees, the Talent Manager is responsible for supporting employees from their first day through their tenure with us, ensuring employees have what they need to focus on their craft.

Our new Talent Manager is both professional and approachable, understanding that we’re not looking to add steps and bureaucracy to our HR function, but instead to make our employees’ lives easier. They are an effective and confident communicator as they usher employees through onboarding, benefit management, and training/development-- all while looking out for new ways we can better support our teams.

The right candidate for this role is obsessed with the employee experience. He or she understands that the talent processes and programs should reflect Work & Co brand. They bring to every interaction empathy and a deep understanding of our distinct values. You help us to keep the standards high and maintain an environment where all employees are extraordinary at their craft, value the power of diversity and inclusion, and above all, are good human beings.

What We’re After

  • 4+ years experience as an HR professional or in a similar role with a successful track record of supporting top talent through benefits and programs that allow them to focus on their craft rather than process and bureaucracy. Agency or start-up experience is a big plus!

An Insider's view of Work & Co

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Every day, I get to work alongside insanely talented people I respect. Our office environments are designed to help us focus on our craft — whether that be coding or digital design or strategy. We also push against burnout and discourage long hours. No time sheets. Everyone should get to be their best selves both in and out of the office.

Rafael

Design Director

What projects are you most excited about?

Creating products that launch is our priority. Having world-class design and engineering talent ensures that these experiences are beautiful and functional. Utility is also important. We always want to add value to people’s lives.

Muriel

Group Director, Product

How does the company support your career growth?

We believe in mentors, not managers. And we see mentorship as a right. At Work & Co, every employee gets a dedicated mentor from day one. Our flatter structure also means we learn from one another, informally, on an ongoing basis.

Caitlin

Group Director, Talent

What is your vision for the company?

Work & Co's mission has been clear since day one. We exist to create —and launch— the digital products and experiences millions of people love using every day. We exist to raise the bar. Our approach is to be the best at a few things versus average at a dozen.

Marcelo

Partner, Technology

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We’re all encouraged to contribute and collectively push boundaries. The best ideas can come from anywhere. All disciplines —designers, engineers, strategists, PMs— sit together in project teams. Our flat structure ensures there's not a rift between senior and junior talent in the company. The result is a workplace that enables continuous learning.
