Head of People Operations

Telecommute · HR


Rendered Text, the company behind SemaphoreCI.com, is looking for an experienced HR professional to join the team as Head of People Operations.

The moment

It's an exciting time to join the company as we're in a transition from office-based to a fully remote work environment. At the moment a third of us are working remotely from 7 countries. By the end of the year we expect more than half of our team to be globally distributed. As our first Head of People Ops, you'll be taking over the functions which have been performed by cofounders and recruiting manager.

About us

We're a bootstrapped company making Semaphore, a code delivery solution used by thousands of tech companies across the globe. Our mission is to help developers move fast in their work. We do that by delivering a product that's fast and easy to use, backed by a highly rated customer service.

Our culture is built on optimizing for happiness, of our customers and ourselves. We operate on continuous improvement on a personal and collective level. When doing things, we prefer to get real and make something valuable sooner, rather than never. We treat each other and our customers with openness, respect and empathy.

We started the company in 2009, and we're in the business for the long term. We prefer to work in an environment supported by self-made growth over VC-backed blitz-scaling.


The role

You’ll be responsible for people development programs, employee experience, and people operations.

Your work will ensure that Rendered Text is always an environment in which smart, ambitious people can do their best work and grow professionally.

To be successful you'll need to get fully integrated with our team and culture. You'll begin by understanding our current team structure and the business as a whole.

This position requires excellent leadership skills and proven ability to motivate team members, increase productivity, and grow overall happiness. It's a hands-on role. Over time, we expect you to lead a team.

Because of time overlap with the team, we'll consider candidates based in Europe only.
