What Is Employee Growth Rate & Why Is It Important?

SafetyWing (YC W18) is seeking a Head of Onboarding and People Development to make the first year of all our new team members joyful and productive.
We are building a global social safety net, including health and retirement for remote workers worldwide, as a replacement for national welfare systems. If we succeed, we believe this will help ensure freedom and equal opportunity for everyone, and it is one of the more important tasks of our time that no one else is working on.
We’re a remote team of ~100, fully distributed stretching ten timezones, headquartered in San Francisco. We are growing fast and are looking to scale up the team significantly over the next year.
Last month the average score when the whole team was asked, “how likely are you to recommend SafetyWing as a good place to work on a scale from 1-10”, was 9.1. However, new team members rate our onboarding process as only 7.5. So your job will be to bring that score up to over 9 as well.

Your responsibilities will include

  • Owning and improving our onboarding process to make it joyful, productive, clear, and welcoming for all our new team members throughout their first year with SafetyWing.
  • Ensuring we have a tailored onboarding experience for various role types (e.g., contractors vs. full-time employees, engineers vs. designers, etc.).
  • Developing and leading workshops and training for employees to learn how we do things.
  • Being an evangelist of our mission, values, and culture to our new employees.

We are looking for someone who

  • Has previous experience as a leader in a People or HR team at a fast-growing startup.
  • Has developed an onboarding process and led over 100 people through it.
  • Has formally taught or coached others and received positive feedback doing it.
  • Can think creatively, then turn those thoughts into organized processes.
  • Is outgoing and likes meeting and interacting with new people.
  • Is ambitious, organized, and great with verbal and written communication.
  • Is empathetic and caring. You get excited about helping others to be happy and successful.
We like to work with people who:
  • Want to help build a global social safety net on the Internet.
  • Think for themselves instead of copying others.
  • Are willing to try new things, even with the risk of failure.
  • Are intellectually curious and open to new ideas.
  • Are creative and bold in the face of any problems.
  • Have strong integrity and do the right thing.

What we offer

We operate in a fully remote work environment – work from anywhere globally.

You will receive salary and equity compensation, health insurance, a laptop, a minimum of four weeks of the yearly vacation, personal development budget, attendance of professional conferences (and much more ).

We have a minimum of two annual team gatherings where you will join us. The previous gatherings were in  Ljubljana, San Francisco, and Mexico.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
