Head of People Operations (remote-flexible)

Are you an experienced People/HR leader with a knack for scaling companies internationally? Come join us in building The Most Human Company.

As Head of People Operations you will be leading the evolution of the People Ops team and become a driving force in our mission to create The Most Human Company. This includes everything from Recruiting and Onboarding, Learning and Development, Compensation, Diversity and Cultural initiatives.

AutoUncle has a strong company culture and lightweight systems that help us operate effectively. But as a fast growing company, there is plenty of space for you to shape the impact of People Ops.

Among the objectives that you will drive the next 6-12 months are:

  • Create a 12 month strategic roadmap for the internal employee experience
  • Implement an HRIS 
  • Design and implement an organisation-wide compensation framework that drives human growth 
  • Recruit 2-4 more people to the People Ops team
  • Participate in the recruitment of 1-3 key senior positions
  • Implement leadership development as an ongoing activity

In all missions you will work closely with the senior leadership team. You report directly to Co-founder & COO, Jonas Bylov.

As Head of People Operations your overall responsibilities will be:

  • Shaping and owning the employee experience vision
  • Leading and growing the People Ops team
  • Designing and implementing systems to drive clarity, accountability and human growth 
  • Create processes to effectively reward and retain talent
  • Attract and hire top talent with a high performing recruitment organisation
  • Build diverse teams of belonging
  • Cultivate and strengthen our human company culture
  • Create an ecosystem of learning
  • Support the ongoing development of effective managers

At AutoUncle, this is a role with huge impact and we expect you to be a seasoned HR/People professional with prior leadership experience from a fast growing environment. It’s important that you understand the stages we go through in the evolution of the company and are able to navigate decisions on when to take long-term initiatives and when to compromise. 

To qualify for the job we expect that you come with:

  • Strong operational skills (meetings, goals, KPIs, collaboration)
  • Strong people management skills with at least 5 years of experience in a leadership position
  • Ability to cultivate cross-functional relationships and senior leadership. Drive influence throughout the organisation
  • Knowledge of HR tools, applicant tracking systems, and data management/reporting techniques
  • A coaching leadership style
  • Experience from international, modern company(s) (OKRs, sourcing-driven recruitment, employee engagement, transparency)
  • Experience facilitating training sessions for people in senior positions
  • Prior experience in a role where clear communication was essential (presentations and written reports)
  • Prior experience being the person that sets a higher standard in the organisation
