Head of People and Culture

Salary Competitive
Equity To be negotiated

Are you passionate about attracting, hiring, and onboarding outstanding talent in a fast-paced tech start-up? 

Whistleblower Software is on an exciting journey to change how companies work with their speak-up culture. Whistleblowing in a big organisation is often complicated and challenging. It comes with a significant personal risk for the employee, who is loyal to the company and "blows the whistle" about unethical behaviour. We are on a mission to make it easier for European companies to do the right things and act more responsible.
