HR Manager


Hong Kong

At Chaos Theory, a HR Manager is a special mix of people-person and process lover.

But more than that, we want people who want to make an impact on one of the most exciting companies in Hong Kong. If that's you, we want to talk.

Chaos Theory works at the digital intersection of sports, entertainment, and cryptocurrency, and we are hiring to grow like crazy. Early in your tenure, we want you to be able to say, “I am learning new things every day, and my work is directly contributing to the kind of growth most companies can only dream of.”

Let’s make that happen together.

A Day in the Life at Chaos Theory's HR

Your day begins with a review of your inbox, scanning through the employee queries that have come in overnight. There's a question about the new benefits scheme and a request from a manager regarding an internal transfer. With each email, you tap into your vast knowledge of HR best practices, ensuring that every reply you send out is consistent with Chaos Theory's values and culture. As you read and respond, you always prioritize the employee's perspective, knowing how crucial their satisfaction is to the company’s success.

With the morning catch-up out of the way, you head into a team meeting where you discuss the rollout of a new training program. As always, you are detail-oriented, jotting down specific actions and next steps, ensuring nothing falls through the cracks. You are energized by the challenges, thinking about how best to address the diverse needs of Chaos Theory’s employees.

Post lunch, you delve into a task that requires your keen eye for detail: reviewing an updated employee handbook.Your task is to ensure that every section is not only legally compliant but also clearly communicates the values and expectations of Chaos Theory. As you work, your excellent written skills are evident, as you make slight edits to ensure clarity and impact.

Mid-afternoon sees you coordinating a new employee's onboarding process. Here, your logistical skills come to the forefront. You liaise with different teams to ensure a smooth induction, from setting up their workstation to organizing their first-week schedule. It’s a well-organized dance, and you’re at the center, ensuring every beat is perfect.

Your day starts to wind down, but there's an unexpected challenge: an urgent request from a department head regarding a personnel issue. Some might feel stressed, but you approach it with a positive, can-do attitude. Collaborating with the necessary parties, you resolve the matter effectively, showcasing your flexibility and dedication to excellence.

As you close your laptop, reflecting on the day, you're proud of the value you bring to Chaos Theory. You’re not just an HR officer; you’re a beacon of trust, support, and excellence in the heart of the company. Another day well spent, and you look forward to the next with the same enthusiasm and determination.
