HR Generalist

This position is a full-time position. This position will work remotely in the Philippines.


Here at BARK, we love dogs and their people. We’re looking to make all dogs happy throughout

the entire world (we’re not kidding). Think Disney for dogs -- we make magic for dogs and their people through our products, events, and experiences. Our ambition level is high, the opportunity is huge, and our love for dogs is through the roof! We launched in 2011 with BarkBox, a monthly-themed subscription of all-natural treats and clever toys. Since then, we've shipped more than 70 million toys and treats to the dogs across the world and use all of that direct customer feedback to inform new initiatives and ways to make magic between dogs and their people. We’ve since expanded into other offerings as well, as we aim to become THE Dog Company for every family with a four-legged, belly-scratch-loving, interspecies family member.


The People Operations Team supports all of the special people who make BARK what it is. . . a company laser-focused on making dogs (and their humans) happy. Dog-obsessed ourselves, we get why BARK is such a unique company. But we also understand that people work here for other reasons too . . . to be challenged both personally and professionally, to feel a sense of community and belonging, career growth and development, recognition, pay, benefits, and much more. But don't call us HR, because we don't look at humans as "resources", we value them as individuals and we strive to create an environment where people are encouraged to be uniquely themselves and they are given the opportunity to thrive and be better everyday, both personally and professionally. We are fortunate to serve the entire pack, from CX to C-suite, and that makes us a busy bunch, but we love what we do. If you love humans who love dogs, and you enjoy challenging those humans to be great, then join us and our pups.
