Overview

We’re searching for an organized, friendly, and detail-oriented People and Office Associate to join our brand new office in Brooklyn, NY. In this role, you will bring to life all of the things that make Brooklinen such a great place to work. 

You’ll not only keep our office running smoothly by organizing supplies, mail, and visitors; you’ll also organize company-wide events, happy hours, and parties (which are currently virtual, but still fun!), employee appreciation gestures (we take birthdays and work anniversaries very seriously here), volunteer events, and more.

In addition, you’ll help to guide our candidates’ interviewing experience and our new hires’ onboarding, from interview confirmations, to desk setup, to welcome treats and beyond. Most importantly, you’ll ensure that all employees feel supported as they grow with us. You’ll become the “go-to” for our (amazing) team, so an inherent passion for helping others is a must.

What you’ll do

  • Maintain an organized, safe and productive office environment: maintain office supplies and tech inventory, oversee building requests, and make sure the office stays tidy and organized
  • Book and greet office visitors, liaise with building management, and develop relationships with external vendors
  • Coordinate in-bound and out-bound office mail and packages
  • Oversee team milestone celebrations: birthday surprises, anniversary cupcakes, and more
  • Support the recruiting process by sourcing candidates, helping to schedule interviews, booking conference rooms, greeting candidates, and managing candidate communication throughout the hiring process
  • Own our new hires’ onboarding experience (from desk/tech setup to welcome treats and beyond), ensuring all new team members feel welcomed and supported when they join
  • Partner with the People team to coordinate office events (virtual for now, in-person soon!), from Halloween parties to all-team volunteer days to summer lunch-hour picnics on our roof deck
  • Maintain our positive office vibes by supervising the music and organizing team “guest DJ” days

We’re looking for someone who…

  • Has prior experience coordinating people-related initiatives and/or coordinating office operations 
  • Can show a demonstrated interest in a career in people operations/recruiting/office management
  • Technology troubleshooting skills (yes, sometimes that’s just “Googling it” until you figure it out!)
  • Is naturally outgoing and kind; must be comfortable greeting visitors and interfacing both remotely and in-person with external vendors
  • Is self-motivated, but a true team player
  • Has strong verbal and written communication skills, and practiced follow-up skills
  • Is an organization enthusiast. Do you destress by organizing? Then you’ll get along just fine here.

Why join us?

  • Our team is made up of friendly, funny, welcoming, low-ego, and passionate people -- who also happen to be great at what they do. We all know the people you work with can make or break a job and so we go to great lengths to protect this amazing culture.
  • We work hard, but are well-rounded (and well-rested). Breaks to pet dogs and hang with coworkers are encouraged. So is taking vacation (we’ve got a $1k vacation bonus), getting out of here at a reasonable hour, Summer Fridays, and obviously getting a great night sleep (our day starts at 10am).
  • Care about growth? So do we. We’re growing rapidly, so we’ve got tons of exciting growth opportunities for our amazingly talented team. Not the type of place where you wait for your boss to quit before you can get promoted. New projects and business needs pop up every single day, and we always look internally first.
  • All the other stuff you’d expect - great benefits (with fully company-paid options), a 401k plan, 100% paid parental leave for ALL new parents, budget for learning and development, fun team outings, and much more.

Everyone is welcome at Brooklinen - we’re passionate about building a team that reflects the diversity of our community and creating an environment where our differences are celebrated.  We welcome people across backgrounds, perspectives, identities, experiences, and abilities and can’t wait to read your application!
