Head of Recruiting & Employer Branding (f/m/x)

Do you know how many obstacles freelancers face when it comes to their finances?

It starts with opening a business account and leads to taking care of all the tax issues. We want to make it easy to run your own business when being self-employed and offer tailored services that address the pressing and unique needs freelancers face.

First we created a smart mobile bank account with superpowers to help with finances, taxes and savings. Now, we also offer a tax service for the self-employed to really take care of all of their needs.

Your Mission:

Would you like to work for the company which belongs to one of the best employers in Germany? A company which is actively listening to their employees and makes employer satisfaction a priority and a company wide key objective? A company which has already managed a hyper growth phase successfully and extended their team by 130+ people? Now, as we enter our next growth stage, we are looking for someone to actively shape the future of our Employer Branding and Recruitment Strategy.

  • Bring exceptional business acumen to challenge the norm and transition all activities to make us innovative and proactive in everything you do.
  • Collaborate closely with our COO and the entire C-Level to ensure that our recruiting strategy is aligned with our changing business needs.

  • You are fluent in English and German.

How we show you our love:
