If you think: “Yes, that’s me!” Read on.


We’re on the path to creating a next-generation windows/doors company. And soon we are moving into other home improvement products too. Our aim is to move strongly to the Central European markets and the UK in the next few years. Join the journey—it is going to be a lot of fun 💪

We’re a vibrant team with great energy situated in Copenhagen (well, Valby) 😇


What would be your tasks at Klar?

Talented people are needed to create a “next generation”-anything, and that’s why we’re looking for someone with a drive for talent attraction and employee engagement.

You should want to take on the challenge of building a department that will evolve and significantly develop in the coming years. But – since it is a small department today –, you’re not afraid of getting your hands dirty with the daily tasks.


The daily tasks are:

  • Handling hires for the entire company, with a focus on Scandinavia and newer markets

  • Collaborating with your team in Estonia on hires for the production

  • Contributing to the continuous development and optimization of people policies, systems, and procedures that reflect best practices and legislative requirements

  • Provide support and advice to people leaders on different employee relations, performance management, development plans, terminations, policies, procedures

  • Use data to provide people-related insights

  • Initiate projects focused on the overall work experience

 

In order to shoot for the moon, you would need the following skillset 💯:

  • Senior-level experience in People leadership, HR, or similar, together with a university degree

  • Thorough experience in recruitment, onboarding, and offboarding, HR operations, employee engagement, performance, and development

  • You know how to build from the bottom up – you have the right toolbox to take Klar’s People and HR department to another level – pushing the vision and strategy for how we work with people

  • Experience in handling complex employee relations issues and coaching managers

  • Great knowledge of Nordic HR/labor regulations

  • Experience and a willingness to move into a high-growth environment, you have done this before and this is definitely your jam

  • Friends describe you as an amazing people person, dynamic and comfortable with a succeed or fail fast approach

  • You are capable of thinking strategically and you want to explore new ways of doing things

 

We offer:

  • Biannual trips to Estonia. Think smoke sauna, pine forests, cheap craft beer 🍻

  • A creative team with diversely talented people you can learn from and grow with

  • An opportunity to have a significant influence on your work and the business in general (we’re very open to change)

  • An informal and positive workspace that likes to joke around

  • Catering every day — partly paid for by Klar

  • Backyard BBQing and sourdough pizzas on the Ooni 🍕

  • Flexibility (in terms of working hours, work from home days, and vacation), 1 paid care day per quarter

  • Possibility to work in other offices in Stockholm, Tallinn, Tartu - Klar will pay for the flight tickets ✈️

  • A healthy/unhealthy amount of alcohol (depending on how you see it)

  • A scale-up environment: Not a start-up with no means, nor a corporate monster that doesn’t care.

And much more …

Working at
Klar

Everyone should live well. Klar is the first European startup that’s making do-it-yourself home improvement accessible and affordable to anyone. ⭐ We have 1 brand in 5 countries- Denmark, Sweden, Norway, UK & Estonia. During the last few years, we have used technology to revolutionize an outdated industry and our aim is to continue to do so with you on board. 🚀 We don’t want things to be more complicated than they have to. We like straight talk and improving the homes of everyone is serious business for us – so why idle on formalities? We want everyone to live well – that means we need to get in touch with a lot of people. Of course, that doesn’t happen all at once, it happens one step at a time. Our goal is that this step is twice as big every year compared to the last. That is, our goal for the company is to grow at least 100%, every year. If that’s the kind of ambition that inspires you, then jump aboard. 💯
