Your profile
Are you ready to Playwork™ with us?
You will be part of a team that is responsible for building high performing teams by shaping a strong culture and helping managers hire, lead, and develop the best talents.

The most challenging and exciting responsibilities for this role are:

  • Lead the learning and development plan by managing external and internal training programs in order to support personal development of our talent to increase productivity and retention

Are you our Head of People and Culture?
The ideal teammate for us would be someone experienced in leading a People & Culture Team, ideally in a fast-paced startup environment. This is as much a strategic as a tactical position. Day-to-day is important, so it’s a vision / plan.

The role will work together with the executive team. You need to support them (feedback, tools, frameworks, etc) as much as you need to deliver directly within your area.
We want to create an HR culture based on factual data and people analytics.

English is a must. We are a multicultural team and we are providing a service in English so, we don't care about certificates but we expect you to be able to communicate fluently.

If you think you don't tick all the boxes, we'd still love to hear from you. Nobody checks every box, and we are looking for someone excited to join the team.

We want a “Playlearning” culture: Friendly, joyful and a feedback culture.
Why us?
If you are the ONE, we have a lot to offer...
We are not perfect, but we are proud of our culture and work hard to make sure every Lingoer loves what they do. These are some of the things we offer you for being a Lingoer:

  • Competitive Salary and Stock-options: Joining the Lingokids journey means you own part of the company.
  • Holidays: 23 days of paid leave, and 14 days of bank holidays a year!
  • Family Leave: Enjoy up to 4 months of paid family leave, regardless of when you joined.
  • Flexible Hours & Remote working: We care about the results you bring to the team. 9 to 6 and constant commuting is not for us either. 
  • Diverse Environment: Gender balanced and multicultural team with 16+ nationalities and day-to-day work in English.
  • Training: we support you to get better at your job with all the books, conferences, and training you need. Including language lessons at the office in ES, EN & PT
