Head of People

Job description

We’re looking for our very first Head of People to make sure every single player of our 50+ team can thrive at Famly. You’ll be reporting directly to the CEO, working together to shape and develop our processes around training, personal development, onboarding, employee wellbeing, and recruitment.

Famly is on a mission to completely transform the childcare industry. Yeah - we know! It's certainly not fintech, although we do have plenty of financial features in our software. We might not be the latest social media influencer platform, AI company, or make ride-sharing skateboards.

But we do work in an industry where our work has a very real chance to ease stress, and save time for those who nurture and educate children. By doing so, it's a chance to have a positive effect on the lives of children themselves.

We’ve been shaking up the childcare software industry for 7 years. Now, hundreds of thousands of parents and staff use Famly every day in the UK, US, Germany, Denmark, and Norway.

Famly’s team is growing rapidly over the coming months and years as we are aggressively expanding across all departments. In this position you will be in charge of all people-related processes as we scale and ensure that our entire multi-cultural team feels supported. You’ll be doing your job right if our team is happy, passionate about what we do, and delivers an exceptional experience to every customer.

What you'll be doing

  • Implementing consistent and effective employee onboarding processes
  • Organising employee and leadership training
  • Creating and refreshing our leadership and employee handbooks
  • Support hiring processes and recruiting efforts
  • Be there for the team and team leads when they need it
  • Help support performance review processes and compensation talks


  • You are passionate about helping people and love seeing them succeed.
  • You ideally have experience being a manager
  • You’re curious and inquisitive about processes and how to make them better.
  • You have experience with HR, Employee Success or a similar role
  • You have experience with hiring
  • You have excellent written and spoken English

And who are Famly?

Famly is built on transparency, less talk - more action, and making sure the person sitting next to you is the one shining, rather than yourself. We care about each other and the work we do, and are a close knit-team of 50+ people, from 19 different countries, all sitting in our central Copenhagen office just off Strøget. We eat lunch together every day, and always celebrate with cake. Sometimes with champagne.

Perks with Famly include

  • Flexible hours.
  • Free lunch every day you’re in the office + as much coffee (or tea) as you can drink.
  • Drinks on Friday and quarterly social events.
  • A position where you can have a lot of ownership of your projects both in terms of responsibility and freedom to try new things. We’ll get you up and running and collaborate along the way, of course.
  • And most importantly the opportunity to develop your skills and understanding alongside coworkers you can learn from, and who want to learn from you.

We're looking to fill the position as soon as possible, so get your application in today by sending us:

  • Your CV / LinkedIn
  • A cover letter, in which you tell us about yourself and why you’re the best person for this position.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
