Human Resource Generalist (Experienced, Full-Time, Work from Home)

The Human Resource Generalist will run the daily functions of the Human Resource (HR) department including preparing, sourcing, screening, hiring and interviewing applicants, administering pay, benefits, and leave, and enforcing company policies and practices.

Why Work Here:

  • LEARN: Working in Shoenami means you are an important member of a small ~9 person team. The unique way in which you approach and solve a problem will be definitely noticed. While you do that, the process of learning will be enhanced too. A startup has fewer people so everybody’s role is important.
  • OWNERSHIP: You'll have the freedom to do your work with no micromanagement. As the late Steve Jobs has said: "It doesn't make sense to hire smart people and tell them what to do; we hire smart people so they can tell us what to do."
  • INNOVATION: At an established company, you most likely have an employee handbook that outlines the policies and procedures for a given scenario. At Shoenami, team members are creating these policies and procedures. This gives you more freedom to experiment with new processes and templates to see what works best.
  • VALUE: Shoenami thrive off of new ideas and ways of thinking through problems. Additionally, there are few teammates to make suggestions. This means that your input is valuable and sometimes necessary for the growth of the business. Having this kind of significance in an organization can enhance your motivation, dedication, and job satisfaction.

What our previous/current teammates say about us:

  • "Very chill, in a way that there is minimal supervision and no micro-management." from Cherith
  • "Personally, I learned so much because of Shoenami. Through your patience, I’ve gotten used to the process and have been able to effectively contribute sometimes. Making less and less mistakes makes me feel proud of myself as well." from Kristine
  • If you ever get lucky enough to be hiring people, make sure you're hiring people that not only you can teach, but make sure you're hiring people who are also going to teach you things.” from Jeff Bezos
  • "Every time, I browse the Shoenami website, I feel happy that my hard work has paid off. This also reflects the trust of the company beyond my work, as well as my growth in my position. Also, the compliments help my motivation grow further." from Daniella
