  • You enjoy planning social and business events and being there from beginning to end.
  • You thrive in a culture that prioritizes diversity, and values honesty, integrity, and authenticity.

  • 3-5 years’ experience in people operations, office management and/or HR.
  • Demonstrated success in planning and executing professional events for employees and customers.
  • Demonstrated success in onboarding new employees and getting them productive right away.
