Ready to make a difference?

You reinvent the People function for the company of the future, by rethinking and reshaping how we connect the dots between humans and business.

We are looking for an experienced people leader who doesn’t have to come from HR, who wants to focus on how talent shapes what a company is capable of achieving. Welcome to apply are people leaders from HR, Consulting, Engineering, International tech companies and even former CEOs of startups looking to reinvent what they can contribute.

This will involve end to end responsibility from finding talent, helping that talent achieve success in their roles, and growing that talent for what comes next. People power the company’s ability to grow and impact the lives of our users, and this as your chance to architect an entirely new system that can flex and grow over time. We want the right person to help that power grow to make a true difference.

Of course you will have to
  • Translate long-term business objectives into tangible goals & OKR/KPI's for people teams
  • Enable our bunqers by ensuring they have the right tools & environment for them to succeed
  • Support further international growth by deploying scalable, future-proof HR strategies
  • Deal with day to day needs and issues like anyone else.

But you also get to
  • Redesign what this function means in the company
  • Create a system that grows people in their skills and abilities as businesses change
  • Architect and environment where the average employee is qualified to do far more than is defined by age or experience
  • Truly feel the impact of your work through the organization.

This challenge is perfect for you if

  • You have a bold vision of what the future of human capital should look like
  • You have ample strategic experience in growing environments
  • You posses an entrepreneurial mindset and a drive to make impact.
