Talent Acquisition Partner

People & Talent
Before you read any further: Diversity of thought is our thing at Opencare; we’ve worked hard to craft a team with a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. Why? We're glad you asked! We are all solving the same set of problems from our own unique lenses, and this is fundamental to our success as a business and ability to produce creative solutions. Experience means something different to each of us, and your unique combination of skills, passions, and experiences makes you a valuable asset to our team.

Don’t feel like you perfectly fit this role? Do us a favour and apply anyway! Take Stacey for example. After building out her career in Talent across multiple industries, from IT to Financial Services, Stacey joined Opencare to take full ownership of Talent Acquisition strategy and execution for the Product and Engineering side of our business. After building out talent infrastructure from the ground up and significantly accelerating the hiring capacity and velocity for her teams, she has moved into a focus on Executive hiring across all parts of the business. Stacey is also taking ownership over candidate experience and talent operations to ensure that the team is set up for success as we continue to scale - two off her biggest passions! The team would not be the same without Stacey, and we are so excited to see her role and impact on the business continue to evolve.

Opencare’s Vision

To enable people to have optimal health of mind and body, by ensuring they get the preventive care they need.

Opencare is re-designing the dentist visit with a focus on wellness. We live our most important life moments, from laughing and smiling to eating and talking, through our mouths. Yet for such an important body part, the thought of visiting the dentist instills fear and confusion in most people. To us, that doesn’t make any sense.

That’s why we’re rebuilding every moment of the dental experience; not only to be impactful during the visit, but life enriching afterward, too. If you never thought you’d say “Wow, I love my dentist!”, our goal is to get you there.

We believe that people reach their full potential at work when they are happy and healthy outside of work. You can learn more about our culture, as well as our professional and personal benefits here. You can also hear about it directly from our team here.
