People Lead

London, England, United Kingdom · People


About Us

We're building a real-time data platform. Our first application has been within the world of Publishing, where we've built the world's first real-time Data Management Platform.

Our technology sits behind some of Europe's largest Publishers — from The Independent and Trinity Mirror through to Top Gear and BBC Good Food — enabling them to understand and personalise user experiences for hundreds of millions of people every month.

With a small, ambitious team, we've been able to achieve incredible things: last year we grew revenue 10x and built a platform which is delivering order of magnitude improvements over our billion dollar competitors.

We raised $10M in January and are backed by some of the best investors and entrepreneurs in the world, including Y Combinator, EQT Ventures and Octopus Investments. Amongst others, their previous investments include AirBnB, Dropbox, Zoopla and Swiftkey.

The Role

We believe the People function is fundamental to achieving our mission. We're about to go through a period of rapid growth, and we're looking for our first People person to lead this.

As our People Lead, you'll be responsible for the full employee lifecycle:

Over your first six months, you'll be building out and running all of the above. We believe measuring something is the way to make it move. This means that during your first few months you'll lay down the foundations for a data driven approach to People and build a stack which reflects this.

After your first six months, you'll start to build a team to execute across each of the three areas. You'll be taking a proactive approach, helping us us to identify, attract and retain talent ahead of the curve, rather than catching up with it. For example, you'll be building a strong employer brand to keep the pipeline full, building employee feedback processes to identify and address issues ahead of time and building relationships with key strategic hires ahead of schedule.

This role will be reporting to the CEO. Importantly, we believe the People team should be true culture champions within the company. This means you'll be working closely with the founders to champion and craft an environment which fosters psychological safety, share of voice and transparency.

Note: We believe unconscious biases result in pay gaps. To avoid this, we run a compensation calculator which will calculate your salary and is driven by your experience. We always aim to pay around the top 25th percentile and this is benchmarked against industry data from Option Impact. We review our numbers every 12 months.
