At Mapiq we're looking for a Head of People to help us scale.

Full-time / Part-time · Delft

About the job

Now more than ever responsible leaders are ready to invest in their workplace of the future. MAPIQ believes that great workplaces drive autonomy and belonging. Our mission is to help create great places to work by building a smart workplace through our platform. Mapiq’s growth and success have accelerated, delivering products that are state of the art technology, smart, social and simple to use.
At Mapiq, we work with highly skilled, driven and energetic people. Our challenge is to keep this amazing team happy, healthy, and challenged in their roles. Retaining talent is key to keep our organization growing and with 70 people and counting, it is time to take human resources to the next level.
As Head of People, this is a fantastic chance to continue to develop all the necessary HR products in an entrepreneurial, vibrant setting, yet with sufficient infrastructure to accelerate. You will create a strategy and set outlines on topics like employee development, one of the first steps Mapiq wants to take in order to unlock the teams’ full potential. Additional subjects are for example growth, leadership development, remuneration, and health & wellbeing. All supported by our talent manager, next to the hiring activities of our inhouse recruiter. And the rest of the Mapiq team!
We are working in an industry that is going sky high, and we wouldn’t be able to keep up without the talented people we have at Mapiq. We always strive to hire people that bring their own ideas, background and culture to raise the bars with us.

  • A minimum of 10 years operational & strategic HR experience
  • Operating in an organizational sensitive, flexible and energetic way
  • This isn’t the first time you’ve faced these challenges. A track record in setting up performance & development in a modern (tech) scale-up company is what we look for

  • You have a completed bachelor's or master's degree
