Meet your future team:

The HR is a self-motivated and lively group, with an innate curiosity to learn. You will report to the Chief Human Resources Officer. While a lean team of 2, you will work closely with the larger HR department, made up for 15 individuals (and growing!).

The team is currently working virtually. While we do have plans to return into the Cambridge MA office, tentatively we are scheduled to return in September 2021. Although in a virtual environment, the Human Resources team has made it a priority to continue to foster a sense of community among the group. This includes virtual happy hours, team all hands, game nights, and more! You can expect to join a hardworking, collaborative environment. The team has led the charge and designed a robust virtual onboarding experience since the start of the pandemic. To date, the group has successfully onboarded 5 new hires in Human Resources alone!
