People team

Head of People

Remote in Europe

As a Head of People, you will own the strategy and execution of making a great place for the top minds. You will focus on identifying and executing people-focused strategies aligned with the company’s goals and values.

This is a hands-on position and the first HR role in the company. If you enjoy working in a high-ambition environment, where what matters is the impact you make rather than the hours you do, and you can deliver well-structured insights based on data, is a place where you can thrive.
