Job Description: 

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:
  1. Create a 12 month strategic roadmap for the internal employee experience
  2. Implement an HRIS
  3. Design and implement an organization-wide compensation framework that drives human growth
  4. Recruit 2-4 more people to the People Ops team
  5. Participate in the recruitment of 1-3 key senior positions
  6. 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.

Responsibilities and Duties
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

You can read more about AutoUncle and what it’s like to work here on our career site. In addition to that, a few things that might interest you are:

  • Headcount ~95 spread across multiple locations (HQ is in Aarhus, Denmark)
  • Engineering is remote-first
  • The people team currently consists of two recruiters and a People Ops Specialist
  • We score 9.3 in Peakon (top 5% of tech companies)
  • Infrastructure: Google Workspace, Slack, Peakon, Teamtailor (ATS), Pleo, Trello

Location: Flexible. To succeed in this role there are great benefits to spending face-time with colleagues on location (especially at HQ in Aarhus, Denmark), but we are open to talk to candidates about remote (within Europe) or relocation arrangements.

Starting date: As quick as possible.

Application deadline: We review applications ongoing.

Compensation: Competitive, based on qualifications.

Attach a video: When submitting your application we encourage you to attach a short video. Don’t fuss about creating something perfect, a 1 minute smartphone recording where you share in English who you are as a human and why you’re interested in this job is more than sufficient!
