Company Culture/ Introduction:

What is your perception around the compensation that your company provides you? Everything you perceive as an employee is just a wire transfer once a month, an unclear payslip in your inbox and a fragmented offer of benefits that are difficult to understand or use.

At Cobee, we think that compensation is people’s most important financial relationship, and we think that is possible to provide a much more engaging experience around it. Cobee is a compensation & benefits company that is using new technologies to disrupt this big market that has been traditionally dominated by big incumbent players. In our road to our vision, we have started with benefits, providing an aggregated solution both for companies and employees to manage them (e.g. meals, transportation, insurance, gyms, pensions, etc.).

We are a company made of a young, very professional and talented workforce. We think BIG and we strongly believe in a vision where employees all over the world will jump from company to company demanding Cobee as a means to get compensated at their jobs.

There are three core principles that we all share in our way of working:

1) Employees first: we strongly believe that making employees FEEL DELIGHTED is our key to success. Not only our clients’ employees, but also our own.

2) ISpossible ambition: our offering did not exist before, we are category creators. We constantly challenge the status quo because we are a set of thinkers who think that improvement IS always POSSIBLE.

3) Owner ownership: we all know what our duties are, we work with full independence and ownership towards our goals and we know how those affect the overall company goals. We are autonomous and we care A LOT about the quality of our own work.

Do you want to join a company whose main principle is to make employees happy? :)

What are we looking for?

We are looking for a Head of HR as one of the key roles to help us scale Cobee, attracting the best talent and creating an environment in which people can excel in their job and grow as a professional.

Since the pandemic began, we have grown our team +300%, up to ~50 people, and we expect to continue doing so. In that context, we need to ensure that the new and recently hired employees raise the bar in the company, helping Cobee to professionalize, go global and increase growth.

We aim to be a top employer in the startup scene, particularly in engineering and product roles. We are looking for a Head of HR that is used to work with technical positions, understanding their needs, sources, motivations etc. so that Cobee becomes a desired employer for the technical talent.

To do so, the Head of HR should help us building a strong employer branding, streamlining recruiting processes that get top talent for the company and structuring internal policies and processes such as career plans to help all our employees grow as professionals.
