We have developed a platform that removes all the frustrations of being a landlord by leaning on technology, automation and amazing customer service.

Join us to make a real change in an industry that truly needs it.

About the job

We’re looking for a Head of People & Culture - an important part of our team and a crucial colleague in the next phase of our growth journey. 

You will be contributing to creating the best possible employee experience for every Propster - which is absolutely crucial for us to deliver on our ambitious promises to our customers. This means developing the Proper People Operating Model necessary for the next phases of our journey, but it also means you need to be versatile, curious and open to take on a very broad range of responsibilities. 

We expect you to hit the ground running and some of the outcomes for the next 12-18 months include: 

  • Hire 15-20 new Propsters

  • Build standards and processes necessary for our people operating model

  • Solidify and develop the unique Proper culture

  • Become a trusted advisor on People-topics - to all levels of the organisation

  • Increase your market knowledge - don't worry, we will help you with this

  • Get to know your new colleagues, share some laughs and after-work drinks

You will have a lot of freedom to shape the role as you see most valuable for the business, but we do believe that the scope should cover some of these topics: 

  • Talent & Recruitment

    • Recruitment (expect to hire 15-20 new Propsters the next 12-18 months)

    • Develop the Proper People Operating model

    • Create the best employee experience incl. onboarding of new employees

    • Development of career progression plans and paths

  • People Operations & Administration

    • Engagement survey and initiatives

    • Own the necessary tools and systems

    • Management and development of employee benefits 

    • Payroll management (with our outsourced payroll partner)

    • Go-to on questions about vacation, maternity, insurances, etc. 

    • Contract and warrant program management

    • Relocation and remote employee management

  • Social, Culture & Office Management

    • Make sure Proper continues to be a place where employees enjoy coming

    • Continuously think about retention and engagement

    • Lead efforts on social activities such as Friday bars and celebrations

    • Be the one who has that eye for office-“hygge”

    • Continuously work on “culture”

    • Make sure that coffee is continuously flowing, snacks are plentifully available and the fridge is fully stocked for friday bars 


We are firm believers that past experience does not determine future success. We also recognise that getting to know you, your beliefs and traits is far more valuable than what is on your CV. 

So whilst the below are some broad competencies we look for, we also recognise that people are complex and never fit into pre-determined categories:

  • You thrive in people interactions 

  • You are results oriented and always striving higher

  • You are curious by nature and want to approach things differently

  • You are open to change, different ideas and coaching.

What we offer you

Join one of the fastest growing PropTech scale-ups in Denmark, with an experienced team and funding from some of biggest VCs in Denmark. It is a role with responsibility, influence and opportunities to grow with the company as we go international.

In addition, we offer:

  • Competitive Salary

  • Warrant Program - you will contribute to Proper's success, so it's only right that you own a part of Proper.

  • Office located in Central Copenhagen

  • Damn good lunch!

  • Extensive Private Health Insurance

  • 6 Weeks Paid Holiday
