Seedstars Head of People

Who we are

Seedstars is a global organization with headquarter in Switzerland and a presence in 60+ emerging markets. We are on a mission to impact people’s lives in emerging markets through technology and entrepreneurship. Our initiatives are focused on connecting stakeholders within these ecosystems, building tech companies from scratch and investing in the top entrepreneurs.


About the job

It’s very important to us that the candidates share our conviction of bootstrapping and love of the web/tech world, you should have an intuitive feel for what works and what doesn’t online! Keep it simple and keep it lean is our mission so we are not flexible when it comes to cultural fit.


You will work hand-in-hand with the founders to build our organizational capacity and ensure we are creating an environment in which our entrepreneurs can realize their full potential.

We are looking for an exceptional profile to join us to scale the whole group. You will enable the Seedstars platform, our ventures and startups in our network to find and hire the best talents.

You will play an instrumental role in building a truly world class company and will bring extensive knowledge and experience in managing and building people systems for growing organizations.


The key responsibilities for this role will be:

  • Ensure that the day-to-day operations of people-related functions are carried out in a timely, efficient, and proactive manner
  • Oversee and improve recruitment process and work with team members to ensure a smooth process flow from identification of a vacancy to the filling of that vacancy
  • Develop systems, procedures and policies to manage the full entrepreneurs lifecycle, e.g. recruitment, on-boarding, performance management, compensation and exiting
  • Build and develop external suppliers pipeline


Your major assignments will be:

  • Identify head of country holdings to scale up our group in the different key regions
  • Recruit additional people for our platform (web dev, network, co-working, online marketing, etc…)
  • Develop the program to test, train and hire top talents
  • Help our ventures hire their core team
  • Fine-tune our global methodology: sourcing strategies, recruitment policies, employees packages, hiring processes for Seedstars and its ventures


Your profile

  • Previous relevant experience with the job is a MUST
  • Flexibility & International exposure - This job only makes sense for someone who is passionate about traveling and excited to go somewhere completely new, often on very little notice & with a couch surfer attitude
  • Excellent organisational skills and attention to details (at the question "please describe who you are in a tweet" start your answer with the word "kiskil")
  • Strong belief in getting things done - We are nomads traveling around the world so it is important to have drive, ownership and execution. Working in remote with an international team, you have to be comfortable working alone and capable to prioritize and make things happen


Benefits and perks

  • Exposure to cultures and ecosystems from over 60 countries
  • Build your network in emerging markets of tech entrepreneurs and investors
  • Join a young, passionate, hungry and growing team of entrepreneurs & facilitators
  • Bootstrap salary (open compensation model available based on experience, location, seniority, etc...) and bonus based on performance. It's all up to you!
