About the Team

The People Team at Harry's is here to make Harry’s a better place to do great work, grow our people, and build an innovative business. We are looking for enthusiastic, humble, and curious people-loving-people to join us! 

About the Role

You’re here because you care about the people just as much as you care about the business. As a People Business Partner, you will be a key leader for people development and org planning across the company and work closely with the senior leaders and people managers in your client groups. 

Having a talented and agile Business Partner who understands how to navigate the complexity of a fast growth and ever changing environment will be crucial for our long term success.  We need someone who can look around corners to make sure we are creating teams and processes that scale. This strategic and trusted advisor should be someone who cares a lot about culture and the people that form it; they will ensure we are maintaining and improving the elements that make Harry’s special by fostering an environment of diversity and inclusion.  In true start-up fashion, this individual will have the opportunity to build and implement programs and processes from scratch with substantial impact.

What you will accomplish:

  • Partner with your clients, People teammates and cross-functional collaborators to help run and improve all key people processes (promotion, compensation, performance management, Learning and Development, etc). 
  • Create org structures and working models that will scale, working collaboratively with e-team and Directors to identify needs, pain points, communication strategies and succession plans.  
  • Coach current and new employees in their development, career pathing and ability to navigate and resolve tricky challenges.
  • Make the outstanding leaders you support even stronger, by providing guidance, cross-functional perspectives and 360 degree feedback.
  • Infuse and drive diversity practices into Harry’s culture, values and engagement initiatives fostering an environment of inclusion and support.
  • Identify opportunities to use technology and automation wherever you see inefficiencies to make everyone’s lives easier and enhance overall communication between teams.
  • Build compliance into all you do, including maintaining documentation around all employee relations and performance issues, off-boarding and legal matters.

This should describe you:

  • People whisperer and coach. You naturally build strong relationships at all levels. You are a sought after coach and thought partner for all employees.
  • Earn trust quickly. You are honest, credible and a great listener.
  • Good instincts on people. You consistently choose the best course of action, considering all impacts on people across the org.
  • Business savvy. You quickly develop a deep understanding of business strategy and how we make money.
  • Honest, direct and supportive in all communication.
  • Life long learner. You love to teach and coach. You love learning new things and are not afraid to admit when you don’t know an answer.
  • Passionate, out of the box HR thinker. You design things that work for Harry’s, not just what is standard.
  • You have multiple years of applicable experience leading and working with teams and people.

Here's who you'll work with: 

  • Report to Senior Manager, People Business Partner.
  • Work regularly with the NYC Business Partners and Recruiters to attract and retain fantastic talent.
  • Serve as People Business Partner for key teams at Harry’s.
  • Build strong relationships and interact regularly with full Harry’s team.

An Insider's view of Harry's

What are some social events your company does?

Inspired by the Winter Olympics, we're currently holding our own Harry's Olympics. It's completely ridiculous and incredibly fun! We also have happy hours, breakfasts, lunch and learns, and team offsites. I love joining smaller groups that connect me with people I don't work with everyday.

Maia

Senior Associate, Creative Projects

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

As Harry's expands beyond razors, we are focused on building a platform that can support multiple brands, which is transforming our technical infrastructure. We're also collaborating with our data analytics team to better understand our customers, both present and future, and serve personalized and curated experiences to them.

Natalie

Software Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Besides working in an open office (where I’m quite literally always accessible), each week my co-founder & I speak at our all-hands meeting, allowing us to openly share what’s on our minds. We host Q&As, Fireside Chats, Lunch N’ Learns, & I co-sponsor our Women’s Employee Resource Group, where I work with folks at all levels within the company.

Andy

CEO
