VP of People

This role is available for the following location:
Oslo, Norway 🇳🇴

What conditions allow people to produce their very best work? It’s a question we’ve been obsessed with for quite some time here at Memory; it’s the north star guiding all the products we build. But that question shouldn't only be about our products – it needs equal attention for our team members and the structures we have.

As a fast-growing startup that has quickly grown from 1 to 50 employees, we’ve been through several team transformations. Mistakes have been made along the way, but we’ve learned from them to try and build a truly world-class company where everyone can thrive.

Our team is set to increase to 100 people in the coming year. We want to take the company to a whole new level, and are looking for an exceptional VP of People to ensure our team has the right conditions in place to achieve their absolute best.

You know how to do that. You’ve undergone the strain of moving a startup to a proper scale-up and beyond. You fight for the things you believe in, and are ready to have healthy debate with our CEO and leadership team to create the very best company possible. We believe you have experience as an HRBP, since your work is going to be at a strategic level.

You get tons of energy from seeing people happy in their work. And you know that happiness doesn’t come from free food or a vacation policy. You understand that real work satisfaction comes from a sense of accomplishment and progress — being trusted to solve real problems; being set up for success and exceeding expectations; being seen, valued, and appreciated.
