About the Role
The People team at Elevate Labs is a small team with a large impact on each person in our fully remote startup. We are responsible for partnering with managers and leadership to curate an engaging and positive candidate and employee experience. On the recruiting side, our goal is to ensure that each candidate feels equitably and thoughtfully cared for throughout their hiring process. On the employee side, we aim to cultivate a sense of belonging and enable folks to do the best work of their lives. 

In this role you’ll be responsible for owning our HR and recruiting operations. It’s a broad set of responsibilities, so we are in search of a true HR generalist who is equally happy scheduling candidates as they are working behind the scenes keeping us compliant and paid on time. This role revolves around managing an extensive list of critical and time-sensitive tasks, so we’re looking for someone with a keen eye for detail who lives for precision. This role also regularly interacts with candidates, our employees, and our external partners, so excellent written and verbal communication, as well as a customer-service mindset are essential for success.
