About HumanCentric

HumanCentric was founded in 2015 and is a profitable, high-growth, eCommerce brand. We design products that help our customers optimize their businesses and home offices to create a well-designed and comfortable space for both work and play.

Who we're looking for:

To be a great fit for this job, you must have:

  • A knack for getting up to speed on new domains quickly. You learn, apply what you learned, and become an effective contributor in a new area with ease. Researching and managing the process for acquiring a business or finding a new supplier in Canada don't sound intimidating to you.
  • The ability to work both quickly and methodically. You create tremendous amounts of accurate, finished work much faster than other people you work with.
  • Impeccable communication and project management skills. You don't miss a task and know how to make sure that everything gets done across dozens of concurrent projects.
  • Extremely good organizational skills and careful attention to detail. You can sense when something doesn't seem right, and you know how to dive in and fix it.
  • High degree of verbal professionalism, capable of representing yourself and the company in articulate & fluent English.

Had you been with us last month, you would have...

  • Created a talent acquisition plan including sourcing, assessment, and interviewing techniques.
  • Built a procedure for identifying acquisition targets
  • Researched and identified alternative Canadian suppliers
  • Drafted helpful documentation for onboarding new employees and communicating overall company policies and procedures and onboarded a new team member.
  • Written this job posting.
  • And much more.

If you work with us, within the next two years it’s likely that you’ll:

  • Significantly contribute to our overall strategy and bottom-line profitability
  • Be part of (or lead) a M&A team that acquires multi-million dollar businesses.
  • Gain experience running an international business including financial, compliance, legal, and communication issue.

Qualities that will make you a good fit for HumanCentric

  • Technology Fluency. You can learn a new application faster than almost anyone around you.
  • Independence and Efficiency. You get things done faster than your peers, and are always improving your execution. You have the right information at your fingertips because you planned in advance. You can independently manage a huge backlog by identifying actions from high-level objectives and prioritizing intelligently. You follow through on all your commitments, on time.
  • Humility. If it’s part of running and building the business, nothing is outside your job description. And that’s something you value and appreciate.
  • Respect. We treat each customers, vendors, and each other with tremendous respect and sincere appreciation. They are people first, and business partners second.
  • Balanced Intensity. You approach your work with intensity, but you're an easy person to be around.
  • Clear Communication. Clear, concise, and professional written and verbal communication skills. You get your point across effectively and know how to focus on the right things.
