Director of People

full-time Kandidate Barcelona

At Typeform, our mission is simple: bring the best data collection experience to people, by making it conversational.

We start by caring about people. That’s why in People Operations we treat humans not as resources but, well—humans. We care about building an environment where people can thrive.

Now, we’re looking for a Director of People to support the talent we have at Typeform. Someone who knows what it takes to create a people-first environment at scale.

Reporting to a co-CEO, you’re responsible for three areas across two locations. The areas? People Operations, People Partners (HRBPs), and Learning & Development. The locations? Your office in Barcelona (HQ) and our new office in San Francisco.

Here’s Vaida, our People Partner & Recruiter:

“As we grow quickly, we need to keep the focus on the most important thing: a people first approach. This means changing the way people think about a typical HR function, just like we changed the way people think about online forms.

Are you great at creating unbeatable work environments? Are you eager to work in Barcelona with colleagues from 40+ different countries? Are you keen to nurture a multi-disciplined team with expertise ranging from customer success to engineering?
