Talent Manager (f,m,d)

Did you know that more than 55% of all developers are changing jobs every two years? According to studies 35% of them even switch every year. If onboarding takes a regular developer half a year, there’s not much productive time left.

As our new talent manager, you should ask yourself what you could do to change those numbers above. What would you need to create so that developers stay longer? Any ideas? Then let’s have a chat.

Your first challenge – your most important one: as team member of talent managers, we will create a talent management department from scratch. The end goal is that every candidate feels appreciated and has a great experience – even if not everyone can receive an offer. Remember: you might meet again.

Your second challenge: Hiring managers are waiting to be supported and trained in interview methods, body language and assessing candidates’ qualities based on comparable interviews.

Your third challenge: It’s not just about getting talented people on board. Ask yourself: what can I do to make them stay longterm? What do we need to do to become a great place for work – an employer well known for an appreciative and productive atmosphere?

Your fourth challenge: Together with our People & Culture Manager and Lead Talent Acquisition, you’ll be part of creating an employer brand from the inside before we talk to the outside world.
