About the role:
Our fast-growing company is looking for a People and Organisation Manager to enable our fully remote team to thrive. As part of the People and Organisation team, you will play a critical role in making us the best employer for the best talent throughout Europe. Your tasks will be varied and challenging: whether it’s organizing our team events, constantly improving our top-rated onboarding, managing internal communication or fostering our unique team culture, you relish the opportunity to problem-solve creatively to support our team.
As our new P and O Manager, you’ll drive your own projects and work with our P and O Director to identify and prioritize needs. You’ll use a variety of communication methods — email, presentations, office hours, zoom calls, and more — to keep our fully remote, international team connected and up-to-date on what’s happening in the company. As a representative of our team culture, you’ll connect with teammates throughout the year, whether it’s in your local area or travelling to attend company events, onboardings, and meetings.
What you will do
You’ll work on a variety of People areas.
You’ll start with managing our onboarding program: ensuring our new hires are fully equipped and ready to make an impact.
You’ll take the lead on organizing our 3x a year company Gatherings, overseeing our event planners and our own team to create a memorable week and rewarding experiences.
You’ll use state-of-the-art tools to measure our employee experience, make relevant policy recommendations and implement solutions to continuously improve.
You’ll bring our internal communication to the highest level by organizing our internal docs, adding new formats, and setting company-wide standards and best practices.
You’ll serve as our Safety Officer, managing protocols, remote work ergonomics, etc.
You’ll propose and implement people-first solutions, be part of our Wellness Task Force, and continuously devise compelling initiatives to support our remote workforce.
Why you will love it
You’ll have autonomy and responsibility to move things forward, shape the processes and choose the tools you need to do your best work.
You’ll join an international and fully remote team spread across the whole of Europe with a common mission – to inspire great adventures, making them accessible to all.
You will be empowered and encouraged to shape and drive komoot’s company culture to be industry-leading.
This is a remote role and we are a fully remote team. You are free to work from wherever you want within the time zones UTC-1 and UTC+3. A beach? The mountains? A co-working space (covered by us)? Our HQ in Potsdam? You decide.
You will travel with us (when safe) for team gatherings in amazing European locations. Check out this playlist to find out more about how we stay close while being remote.
