Working at Bou

When joining Bou, you'll get to work with our in-house team of 25+ professionals and remote team of 2000+ creative freelancers. You’ll join our operations team and take responsibility for all things related to people and HR.

Daily tasks

As we are growing pretty fast, there will be plenty of new tasks coming on the Operations team’s table – making you a crucial player in defining how Bou’s people operations are designed. In this role at Bou, you’ll be responsible for leading Bou’s people operations. The role is very versatile and includes strategic planning (e.g. employee retention & NPS, recruiting, work contracting, onboarding, and career development planning with the CEO), as well as hands-on execution (e.g. recruitment, office experience, handling the team’s work time from holidays and OOOs to managing overtime balance, organising team activities and offsites).

Required skills

  • 3+ years of HR experience – knowledge on HR matters including employment legislation in Finland and processes for onboarding, contracting, benefits, absences, holidays and other daily HR tasks
  • Recruiting experience – ability to take ownership of our recruitment activities, including coordinating our recruiting partner collaboration and supporting our CEO and domain leads in recruiting new team members
  • Wellbeing & performance – ability to plan and coordinate competence development, and develop wellbeing, creativity and productivity at work
  • Growth mindset & willingness to take initiative – developing our people operations to match the needs of constantly growing organisation and team
  • Project management skills – leading independent HR projects internally or with our external partners
  • Organizational skills – organising and planning events and activities for the whole team – whether it’s H1 kick-off, a spontaneous dinner or Vappu celebration
  • Strong written and spoken English – Nordic languages are an advantage but not a necessity

Applications by Dec 23, 2022

We acknowledge that finding a person who ticks every box is pretty challenging. That’s why we prefer an “If I don’t know, I’ll figure it out” -attitude over having a perfectly matching CV & portfolio.

When we have an optimal candidate, it's just about finding the right time to join forces. Though, as our hands are full, we hope you could start already in early 2023.

Send your casual free form application to work@bou.co by December 23 at latest, but bear in mind that we’ll be going through applications on a rolling basis.
