At Recursion, we combine experimental biology, automation and artificial intelligence to quickly and efficiently identify treatments for human diseases. The HR Assistant will provide company-wide services in areas of onboarding, benefits administration, training and development, culture, diversity efforts, compliance, and document tracking to name just a few.


Many of the projects we're currently working on are foundational, and we're looking for someone who is excited about helping implement scalable, common-sense systems for a staff of diverse subject matter experts. The HR Assistant will report to the Director of Human Resources, and will measure success in execution of day to day HR processes, and in adding value to our HR process design and implementation. If you are looking for an opportunity to stretch your skills in all areas, an emerging (well-funded) biotech like ours is the perfect place to do so. We have the opportunity to learn something new every day, and provide value to a company that is trying to change the world. You could be in HR anywhere, but contributing your skills to a company with a mission to treat disease gives a sense of meaning that is not as easily found.
