This is an opportunity to be part of – and shape – a fast-growing SaaS company with a global focus.
“Have fun and enjoy what you do. Surround yourself with people who are equally passionate about their jobs and are likely to contribute to a fun and positive working environment” said the co-founder and CEO of Spiideo in a recent interview.
The idea for our company, Spiideo, was born back in 2012. Since then, we have expanded to 70+ employees and in addition to our headquarters in Sweden, we now have an international presence in Canada, the US, the UK, Norway, France, China, and Germany. We have succeeded in maintaining a strong level of year-over-year growth since 2017. Our founding team at Spiideo has made a major contribution to our company's success and everyone within that team has played a vital role in getting where we all are today. An essential part of this process has been hiring the right people with the right skills, backgrounds, and personality types to build a fun, positive and productive environment in which the product can grow and improve.
Now we need you to take Spiideo to the next level. We are ambitious in our goal to build the most attractive workplace, which we are doing by developing our leadership and creating a modern workplace for our employees. We care tremendously about our People and Culture and that is why we call our HR Manager our Head of People & Culture. We are on an exhilarating journey of rapid growth and expansion into new markets across the globe. To do this in the best way possible, we need a Head of People & Culture who embodies our company culture and our core values. You will take responsibility for building up our HR capabilities to their full strength. This is an opportunity to be part of – and shape – a fast-growing SaaS company with a global focus.
DUTIES & RESPONSIBILITIES:
As Head of People & Culture, you will be responsible for developing and implementing our overall HR strategies to align with Spiideo's business strategies across the employee life cycle. You will focus in particular on organizational effectiveness, talent management, and employee engagement, and on partnering and coaching your stakeholders to integrate our culture and values into our employee experience. You will have the mandate to define a global standard / best practice/set of processes while the foundations for these are being laid and most basic principles established. The role offers a wide range of opportunities for an entrepreneurial and driven candidate to shape Spiideo´s HR function and its influence across the company. In this role, you will collaborate with management to develop the global EVP in our organization and make sure that we support the business with an excellent employee experience throughout the whole employee journey.
Even though you have the strategic capability and ambition to build a comprehensive HR department, you understand that you will initially need to run a one-person department and are expert at balancing perfection with pragmatism according to how the company needs to develop. You will report directly to the CEO and be part of our management team.
