About the team

Reporting to our Head of Global People Business Partners, you’ll be a leader within our nine-person function. You will work in close partnership with the senior leaders of Product and Engineering, as well as be a strategic guide for all executives in our Amsterdam Hub.

Each role at Miro is based at one of our physical hubs and we look for talent who want to be part of these local, collaborative communities. Mironeers work in a hybrid model, with a 3 days a week in-office culture as our baseline.

About the role

You will balance priorities and viewpoints to build practical and scalable plans that move our initiatives forward in tight partnership.
