Senior HR Business Partner

NYC Home Office
Sink your teeth into something new.

Tend is the world’s first dental wellness experience. Dental care used to be just about your teeth. We make it about your entire wellbeing. With doctors you love, technology that eases, and an environment that soothes, we turn every moment of your visit into a whole-you wellness experience. Before, the best you could hope for was “You won’t feel a thing.” At Tend, we want you to feel something great.

We’re looking for brush buffs, gargle gurus, floss bosses (and novices, too), and anyone who cares about making dentist visits something to savor to join our small and growing team. Headquartered in NYC and Nashville with dental practices opening in Manhattan in 2019, we’re building a totally fresh take on oral wellness, and we want you to sink your teeth in, whether you swear by mint or cinnamon (or chai).

We believe in providing unique experiences not only to our guests, but to our employees as well, and for that reason are looking to hire a Senior Manager, HR Business Partner (HRBP) to support our dynamic and rapidly growing team.  We are looking for someone that is excited by the opportunity to design scalable programs from the ground up, and to build and grow a world-class organization. The HRBP will work closely across many teams to design and execute on our people strategy. This includes strategic hiring and tactics, developing field-based HR processes and policies, and supporting our leaders as they build and manage their teams.
