Head of Talent
FOR PEOPLE OPERATIONS TEAM

Jakub

At Estimote, we’re on a mission to create an Operating System for the Physical World.

We believe the software of the future won’t be created for phones, computers or tablets. Developers and designers of tomorrow will use the physical world as a canvas for their apps and our experiences. Smartphones, wireless sensors, intelligent displays, as well as self-navigating robots are just a natural part of the future stack we will come to rely on.

To make it easier for innovators to digitize the real world and deliver magical experiences at scale, we need sophisticated software products. And that's exactly what we are trying to accomplish at Estimote.

We also like to think of our company as a product. We need to continue to attract, acquire, grow and keep our talented team members. That's why we need someone like you, to own this "product" and all its elements, such as sourcing, recruiting, and hiring candidates for sales, marketing, product, and engineering teams. We need you to be passionate about smart people and obsessed with the idea of building the best workplace in the region.

Since your work will massively impact on our company culture, products, and our future, you will report directly to the CEO and collaborate with our founders, VPs, and team leaders.

Initially, you will need to demonstrate your hands-on skills executing in a startup environment. As soon as you are successful in hitting the first headcount goals, you will be given an opportunity to build your own, specialized team which you can lead.

You will love this job!

Kuba is co-founder and CEO of Estimote. An internet entrepreneur with a strong technology and product background. Right now he is responsible for managing whole company, especially design and operations issues. In this team you will predominantly collaborate with:

Collaborate with management and team leaders

In a startup environment, we are always short of people. We want you to collaborate with our teams to understand precisely who we need and why. Your objective is to find team members that unlock our teams, enabling them to run fast and ship high-quality value to our customers.

Develop strategies and plan execution

Once you know the kind of individuals we want to target, you should strategize on where to find them and how to create resonating messages they will engage with. We need you to be very creative with this. For designers, it might be scraping Behance or attending regional UX conferences. For engineering roles, you might end up digging into Stack Overflow discussions, GitHub activities or simply organizing regional hackathons.

Writing world-class job descriptions

Copy, messages, and communication will always be your most important tools. We expect you to own the process of creating engaging job offers on our website and other distribution channels for maximum exposure.

Outreach to prospective candidates

We need you to engage with people, pitch the Estimote vision, and generate genuine interest. You will need to be creative, strategic, and efficient in sourcing candidates. As an international company, we also need you to optimize the environment for diverse and inclusive tactics to minimize gender and age gap issues.

Managing a small team

You may well end up having an entire team of researchers, sourcers, and recruiters, therefore, you have to demonstrate strong leadership skills to ensure a great work ethic and proper alignment with our goals.

Measure and reflect

You will need to maintain and share data to track pipeline, priorities, and outcomes so that we can continuously learn and improve. We want you to be extremely data-driven and transparent inside and out.

Great recruitment experience

At Estimote, we all create magical experiences. We want you to own all the touchpoints and skillfully manage logistics surrounding the interviewing process, coordinating offer decisions, and final candidate presentation. We need to ensure confidentiality and absolute discretion.

Growth and career

Since there will be other teams with whom you’ll collaborate during the on-boarding and kick-off process, we want you to think holistically about all the talented individuals you brought to Estimote. We want you to contribute to performance reviews, feedback and evaluation sessions, as well as career planning to ensure constant growth and the satisfaction of all our team members.
