Chief of Staff

Full-time / Part-time · Amsterdam

At Starred, our mission is to give candidates a voice during the recruitment process. Starred is the category-leading software solution to measure and analyse Candidate Experience. Our clients are innovative companies hiring at scale all over the world, including Dropbox, Elastic, Robinhood, Klarna, Coca-Cola, Danone, and many more. That’s why we’re looking for a (part-time) Chief of Staff to help us in the areas of HR, Culture, Operations and Finance.

As our Chief of Staff, you help unburden our busy Leadership team and make sure they can perform their very best and focus to make their teams thrive. You will become the most loved person within the company in no time!

Starred is known for its wonderful atmosphere. We're a young company with a team from over 10 different nationalities, whom all love Dutch 'gezelligheid'. During the summer we regularly board the Starred ship for a boat trip in the Amsterdam canals.

You put in place efficient processes to manage projects. You own our operation, finance and HR-related tasks. You run meetings and manage the company calendar. You organize the company events and off-site trips and anything else that needs to get done. You are responsible for the drumbeat that makes the company march.

Responsibilities

As a startup, our goals and tasks are constantly changing, but we can already think of the following that would increase our chances of success!

HR & Culture

  • Help with onboarding of new colleagues, including the employment contract, option agreement, and any other required paperwork
  • Make sure we celebrate birthdays, work anniversaries, Employee of the Month, and other special events
  • Organize our Summer Event, Christmas Event, and other cool after-work events
  • Become the owner of HiBob (our HR system) where we also keep track of holidays, role changes, salary mutations, and other relevant stuff
  • Own our career website (Homerun) and make sure it's breathing the culture of Starred
  • Help with the offboarding process of colleagues leaving
  • Update & maintain our Cultural Handbook

Operations

  • Prepare the Weekly, Monthly and Quarterly Leadership Team meetings
  • Run quarterly and annual goal-setting and OKR processes
  • Run our bi-yearly appraisal process
  • Make sure our office is a ‘Zen’ place where people can do their best work, and be the main contact with our landlord
  • Order the right hardware for our colleagues, and make sure they sign off for this

Finance

  • Review all our software subscriptions once in a while; we can always save some money here!
  • Be a vital part of our Invoicing process and become our Chargebee hero; chase the clients that are not paying with the speed of sound (and smile!)
  • Help our Head of Finance to collect all the invoices and receipts on a monthly basis

The most important thing is you have the right character to be successful in this role:

  1. You are available at least 24 hours per week and you have a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent practical experience

  2. You have a powerful engine that allows you to always hit the gas. You have lots of energy, take initiative, and are super-productive. You know from experience that you don’t need an external motivator to keep on going and you’re a real stickler for accuracy.

  3. You are a “jack of all trades” (m/f). You have an entrepreneurial spirit and have maybe even considered starting your own company. You are a self-starter and eager to “do whatever it takes” – both large strategic projects as well as smaller tactical assignments for things that just need to get done. In a team that is thinking big and rapidly expanding, you make sure we can keep growing.

  4. You’re a fit for Starred and what we stand for. We live by our values:

  • Start with the human
  • Embrace & drive change

  • Building together

  • Work smarter

  • Take ownership

What we offer?

  • A competitive salary and a flexible working schedule that fits your life

  • At Starred we believe in ownership: ownership of your job, but also financial ownership. So therefore you’ll be invited to our Starred Option Plan

  • A cool and fun office in the heart of the Amsterdam tech scene.

If you recognise yourself in this profile and if this gets you excited, we want to hear from you!
