HR Director

Job description


We are looking for an open-minded, empathetic and innovative HR person to help us crystalize the way we do things at Railnova. You will also automate all the nitty gritty details of HR. We have a very innovative approach to management, where we put the emphasis on people's self sufficiency and personal growth, and we love to make convoluted processes easy and digital for people.



Key Responsibilities

Culture and Communication

The main objective of your role is to ensure consistency of culture and communication of the team as we grow. After gaining a thorough understanding of how we do things and were we are going, you will focus on:

  • recruiting: design and animate the recruiting process leveraging people’s individual network, help design recruiting exercises, interview questions, animate the recruiting pipeline, train and support managers for interviews. Help us recruit great people that are extremely technically capable and that will fit well in our autonomous, client-first way of working. 
  • diverse team: help us build a diverse team. In the technology sector this is particularly difficult. We want a diverse team from all horizons, cultures, languages and genders as it makes us a richer and more creative team.
  • onboarding: help us design and animate the on-boarding of new employee (where managers stay in charge), follow up and make sure it’s happening. Help us shape an employee manual for new joiners and existing employees, to crystallize our way of doing things.
  • performance management: help us design the process and animate the performance review process, make sure it’s done on time. At Railnova, managers are responsible for performance management and checking-in regularly with their employees, but we need your support along the way to design and animate this process
  • Communication and Remote work:  While remote work is already institutionalized at Railnova, we plan to recruit more employees abroad. It requires written, asynchronous communication also by teams sitting inside the same office. This need to be build in everywhere.
