We’re looking for someone with heart and grit to help us excel in talent acquisition and build stronger teams

Head of Talent

Introduction

Railway is a close-knit team of entrepreneurial makers, dedicated to help solve some of our time’s biggest challenges. We build lightweight startups with heavyweight impact, leveraging untapped assets in established industries. Our backbone is human-centric design, and we value long-term sustainability over short-term financial gains.

Your role

You'll be joining our dynamic team of seven employees, at our Vulkan office where we invent and build new businesses together. Your main responsibility will be to grow teams and attract talent to our startups.
As head of talent you need to figure out how we can get the absolute best people to scale our efforts. This includes establishing new processes, creating momentum and managing hires. You also need to work closely with the rest of the team to plan and develop roadmaps.
To do this you need to be passionate and structured at the same time. Creating excitement through storytelling and marketing, while staying on top of all the running initiatives going on.
Needless to say, talent acquisition is one of the most important parts of building a company. We depend on many different capabilities in our startups, but mostly developers, designers and business developers. It’s important that you are able to recognize true talent in these groups of people, even though you will get a lot of help from us.
We are looking for someone eager to take on this challenge and shape our teams for years to come. This requires someone with exceptional skills, but most important, someone willing to invest in the people around them and our community.
