  • Launch new programs to support our hiring goals, from interviewer training and on-campus recruiting to innovative diversity and inclusion initiatives
  • Work with our world-class marketing team to build Harry’s employer brand

This should describe you:

  • Enterprise leader. You build strong relationships up, down and across and motivate and advise everyone around you
  • Extremely high bar for talent. You don’t compromise when it comes to hiring and inspire and teach others to do the same
  • Thoughtful and direct communicator who doesn’t shy away from honest feedback
  • Lifelong learner, seeking to improve yourself, your team, and the world around you
  • Innovator who is on the cutting edge of talent acquisition, constantly experimenting and implementing new methods
  • Team player who is not afraid to roll up their sleeves to help get things done
  • Sense of humor who takes their work seriously and themselves un-seriously

Here's who you'll work with:

  • Reporting to the Chief People Officer
  • You will work on the People team which also includes People Operations, Talent Development and Workplace Experience
  • You will partner closely with the senior leadership at Harry’s Inc, working across every function on our Harry’s / grooming brands in the US. You will also help build up our recruiting capabilities in Europe

About Harry’s

Harry’s launched in 2013 with the aspiration to disrupt the men’s grooming market. We built a brand and products out of respect for quality craftsmanship, simple design, modern convenience and for guys who know they shouldn’t have to overpay for a great shave. We are able to deliver exceptional value and experiences to our customers because we are vertically integrated. From grinding steel into fine razors blades at our factory in Germany to selling our products directly to customers on our website and select retailers, we own the entire process.

We have been blown away by the customer response to our brand and today have over 3 million online customers across the US and UK and significant retail presence at Target and Walmart. We are expanding our product offering beyond shaving, most recently launching a body wash and bar soap line.

But our ambition doesn’t stop there. Our vision is to build the next generation CPG company, investing in, building, and owning a portfolio of omnichannel modern brands across multiple categories, similar to how we’ve done it with the Harry’s brand. After raising $112M in our most recent round of funding, the company plans to leverage its platform and capabilities, and partner with exceptional entrepreneurs to launch a number of new disruptive brands in new categories in the coming years. This is where you come in.

Harry’s is committed to bringing together individuals from different backgrounds and perspectives. We strive to create an inclusive environment where everyone can thrive, feel a sense of belonging, and do great work together. As an equal opportunity employer, we prohibit any unlawful discrimination against a job applicant on the basis of their race, color, religion, veteran status, sex, parental status, gender identity or expression, transgender status, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability or genetic information. We respect the laws enforced by the EEOC and are dedicated to going above and beyond in fostering diversity across our company.

Location

West SoHo is cool without being pretentious, convenient and accessible, and nowhere near Times Square!

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.

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.
