Chief People Officer

Can you level up our global team and help empower every single VanMoofer to perform at their absolute best?

FULL-TIME · AMSTERDAM

At VanMoof we made it our mission to get the next billion on bikes. To help us grow, we need to find world-class people who are energized by the work they do. People who live, breathe and dream our company DNA. Then we need to help them to perform at the highest possible level. To make this happen, we’re looking for an inspirational Chief People Officer. 

As CPO, you’ll create a strategy to get the most out of our people, and help them to get the most out of VanMoof. This covers global talent spotting, hiring (and keeping) superstars, developing company culture, and everything in between. You’ll work very closely with our team leaders in Amsterdam, Taipei, Tokyo, Berlin, Paris, London, New York, and beyond – guiding them through the recruitment process and empowering them to lead their teams in the most effective way possible. 

Key responsibilities:

  • Build a people-oriented performance strategy that matches VanMoof’s DNA
  • Understand the functions and future talent needs of every VanMoof department
  • Scout and meet hundreds of talented people every year, and identify the real superstars before we need them
  • Make our Homerun and LinkedIn page the best possible expression of who we are
  • Design and create a rigorous hiring process that all departments can follow
  • Develop a clear, comprehensive, and inspiring onboarding process that sets every new employee up for success from day one
  • Manage employee review processes, providing guidance for contract extensions and building a career progression plan for every team member

The CPO we're looking for has:

  • Minimum 8 years relevant experience, with 3+ years leading a HR department, ideally inside a high-growth company
  • Bonus points for a background or strong interest in psychology
  • Flexible, bold, and determined personality
  • Experience with global teams is strongly preferred
  • Fluent spoken and written English is required, Dutch is a bonus 

Our offer:

  • Competitive salary
  • Your own VanMoof, of course
  • A creative and transparent working environment in central Amsterdam
  • A spot in our ambitious, friendly, and rapidly growing international team
  • No boring days, ever

Now, the touchy-feely stuff:

We want someone to change the world with us.
We believe that bikes make cities more liveable and humans happier. You'll structure and optimize our international team to help get a LOT more people riding bikes... and make sure every single employee reaches their potential within the company.

You’ll need to be as stubbornly focused as we are.
We do more with less. But we need to develop and strengthen our company culture so that every team member feels empowered and energized. It’ll be your job to make that happen.

And you'll have to be damn inventive.
We don't want someone who can tick the boxes, we're looking for someone who can solve problems of all sizes, lean into the chaos, and help us get better every day. We're also growing like crazy, so you'll need the patience of a saint and the persistence of an ultramarathon runner (sometimes).

'Nuff said. Do you want to roll your sleeves up and get your hands dirty in all the making, building, problem-solving and growing we'll be doing in 2018? Click the yellow button below and let's get this party started!
