Human Resources Director or Manager

📍 Washington, DC or New York, NY

ZwillGen is a boutique law firm that represents some of the biggest names in technology on a range of Internet-related legal issues including cybersecurity, privacy, government surveillance, alternative data, and fantasy sports. We offer a hard-working, joyful, and casual work environment.

We are in search of an HR leader to plan and manage human resources programs, including benefits, personnel training and professional development, and to handle recruiting and onboarding (virtually or in IRL). The HR director will oversee employee orientations and training programs as well as the implementation of firm policies and guidelines. This individual will work with leadership to address individual and firm-wide employee needs and to manage personnel issues. The ideal candidate should be detail-oriented, a good problem-solver, discreet, and able to work independently with little supervision.  They should understand how BigLaw works, but not be wedded to it. Creativity and a sense of vision are paramount.
