Meet Hypatia

Tell us about yourself, your position, background, motivations.

I started my HR career in talent acquisition. I thrived in helping people find new opportunities. Being a matchmaker was fun! After my stint in recruiting, I transitioned to HR Generalist and HR Business Partner roles where I sort of fell into life sciences when I moved to San Diego to be with my college sweetheart. I found I really enjoyed being in an environment where the playground was ever changing and challenging. I was able to work with incredible leaders and mentors that helped shape me who I am today. Currently, I am the Compensation and Benefits Manager at Crinetics where I feel fulfilled in the important work we are doing with rare diseases, the incredibly smart individuals that keep the organization running and being able to come up with dynamic solutions as we continue to grow! Its an exciting time to be a part of Crinetics!

What about Crinetics makes you the most excited to work here?

I love working on this side of HR. I feel a little bit like Oprah! You get a benefit! And you get a benefit! Besides ensuring our employees are well taken care of, I do enjoy working with systems and automating processes. It keeps things exciting and I’m all for making processes more efficient so we can focus more on the people! Also, we can bring dogs to work! Such a plus!

What is your advice on people hoping to join Crinetics?

Sign up and be a part of a fantastic group of people. We have some of the hardest working individuals that are so smart, fun and kind-hearted. It’s a great mix of people to solve some incredible challenges in the life sciences realm.
