The Head of People and Culture role at Linktree is extremely important to our future plans as this person will design and build our processes and policies to ensure we maintain the strong culture we've built, as we continue to grow. Our aim is to be one of, if not the best company in the world to work for. So with lofty goals and plenty of work that needs doing, this should appeal to those that love greenfields projects and a challenge.
The dreamboat for us is someone with a strong general HR background, as you will be required to handle what we could call "traditional HR" responsibilites and ideally within scaled tech companies, as we are growing, a lot. We've grown from 20 to 40 people this year and added 3 million customer accounts from April to September, with no end of that growth in sight.
As well as the "traditional HR" responsibilties, you'll be tasked with designing and rolling out:
We do a lot of the above already, but if we have it already it needs polishing. If we don't have it, it needs creating. This is a hands-on role so you will enjoy working from concept to final product in your day to day.
There is currently a Talent Acquisition Manager in our team, in fact, I'm writing this job ad, so you won't need to lead recruitment, but we will partner frequently and I'm interested to learn from you and happy to support you where I can.
What are we looking for?
We are really big on Diversity and Inclusion here, so you should be too. Linktree is really proud of our team culture and we want to maintain that at scale so you will be our Chief People Infrastructure Architect.
What do we offer in return?
To be fair, you'll have a big part to play in the parts we would write here. Benefits, opportunities, a culture that people hear about and want to work at that really values diversity and inclusion, mental health and collaboration. Not just words on a document, words that are backed up with actions.
Linktree's company culture and values are based around collaboration, diversity, inclusion, and flexibility. Those are all nice words but to give you some more specific examples:
We are a family-friendly and flexible work environment with our team with a number of our team working hours around school and home commitments.
We have several diversity and inclusion initiatives underway, including a D&I council, training for all staff on neurodiversity and the incorporation of a transgender inclusion policy.
Our team is diverse across age, gender, and race and we are very proud of that.
Due to COVID we are all remote but even when COVID is behind us, we will be a mixed remote and in-office company. With our team already spread across 8 locations and 3 countries, we will always be some form of remote.
