We are looking for a flexible part to full-time People Lead / Office Manager to join our team in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina!

You are a natural leader

  • As our headcount grows, you are ready to guide recruitment and talent acquisition, vet candidates, lead the interview process, and assist in onboarding our new teammates.
  • You are a Jack-of-all-trades that can take on many tasks outside of your wheelhouse and you are not afraid to learn in public with the team. 
  • You enjoy providing guidance and mentorship, developing and encouraging teammates to take on new challenges, and synthesizing your own key learnings for others.
  • You listen just as well as you contribute. Compassion and curiosity for your teammate’s projects, and our consumers will serve you well. 
  • You are a clear communicator with a knack for delivery adjustment for the audience. You can express yourself perfectly one-on-one as well as in a large hall. You cut through the jargon to true content and meaning.
  • The position is flexible and can be either part-time or full-time.

You are an organizational guru

  • With a keen eye for operational efficiency, you are able to identify areas for system improvement, create templates and protocols, adapt to shifting priorities, and draft guidelines all within a tight timeframe.  
  • You thrive with personal autonomy and have a penchant for problem-solving. You are quick to identify gaps and step in to anticipate what is needed. 
  • You are all about productivity and leveraging everyone’s skills to the benefit of the common goal. You know how everyone ticks and how to motivate them. 

You love tackling challenging problems with a team

  • You believe in our mission of working towards better infant nutrition, women's health, and sustainability
  • As a conscientious teammate, you're curious to learn from co-workers and share your personal passions
  • You enjoy working collaboratively with a broad and diverse team and stepping outside of your comfort zone
  • You're naturally inclined to think critically and creatively to work through murky problems with limited resources
  • Ambiguity is your jam and you're able to strive ahead without direction
  • You hold yourself and others to the utmost ethical standards in all scientific and professional endeavors
