People Ops. Specialist (f/m/d)

Job description

Your mission

Take our People Ops. team to the next level as our first dedicated specialist in this position and support out team as we double our headcount (30 > 60 over the next 12 months). If you're someone who likes to build things from the ground up, enjoy being hands on and care about the employee experience, this opportunity could be the one you've been looking for.

You'll have the opportunity to

Contribute to the evolution of our People Ops. team by bringing your knowledge and passion to support Upvengers from the moment they sign their contract, through to when they leave for their next chapter. While we already have the basics in place, you'll have the chance to influence and improve how we support our team with access to information via our Knowledge Base (Slite), self-serve guides as well as providing a healthy balance of personal touch points. Additionally, you can expect to take ownership of our HRIS, contract creation & amendments, supporting new hires when relocating and, all ongoing support questions ranging from time-off requests, audits and compliance.


About you

Having already gained experience running a People Ops function alone, or part of a small team, you bring a service-orientated mindset by putting the employee experience front and centre with everything you do. You are sensitive to the needs of employees and are adept at handling and resolving a broad range of German employment topics. You are open minded and flexible to the changing nature of your role and are equally at home handling the regular cycles of work (payroll prep, contract creation etc) as you are when dealing with ad-hoc and spontaneous requests. Additionally, you're organised, structured in your approach and also bring a healthy level of curiosity that helps you challenge and improve the status quo.

Due to the nature of the work, you'll need to be fluent in German.

What we offer

  • We're working on solving a hard problem: fixing the European securities financial infrastructure that empowers more people to be able to invest. You have the opportunity to contribute to this change.

  • We invest in you. From access to a personal coach, development budget and plenty of opportunities to grow in your role.

  • We take hiring seriously with a strong focus on keeping a high bar when interviewing (equally important is that we also hire decent people who are passionate about their craft and helping up achieve our shared mission).

  • While we're not quite fully-remote, we are committed to being a flexible employer.

  • We live a culture of empowerment, trust (that we hire the best people and get out of their way) and openness (there's a greater advantage in sharing information than keeping it to ourselves).

  • We ensure we take time to have fun as a team. We're looking forward to having more time in-person again once this becomes possible again.

Why Upvest?

We’re building the first European Investment API to enable any financial institution to offer a broad range of investment products in their apps. Our view is backed by Europe's largest tech VCs (Earlybird, Notion Capital, Partech, HV Capital) and by renowned fintech entrepreneurs (including Maximilian Tayenthal, founder of N26, and Felix Haas, founder of IDnow).

Our vision is to create a world in which any asset can be owned and traded digitally by anyone, anywhere. Working alongside an international team of 30 Upvengers you’ll be in good company to help us realise this vision.
