Head of Talent (M/F)
Creandum is one of the leading European venture funds, with offices in Stockholm, Berlin, and San Francisco. Striving to be an early stage arm on a long term partnership, the Creandum funds have been early investors with some of the world’s leading technology companies including the listing of Spotify, the exit of iZettle to PayPal, Small Giant Games getting acquired by Zynga for $700 million, and the IPO of Elastic, which now has a market cap of $8+ billion. This contributed to Creandum II being the best performing venture fund in Europe ever based on multiple on cash. The firm is currently investing out of its fifth fund, and some other existing portfolio highlights include Klarna, Bolt, TradeRepublic, Taxfix, and Kahoot.
The Creandum funds invest at seed and Series A, mostly in the role of lead investor. The ambition is to be the most value-added and active partner in the cap table for its companies, where Creandum’s operating style is defined as humble service-providers.
As an integral part of the Creandum platform, this role will help build out a key pillar of the firm’s portfolio services. Creandum is looking for someone entrepreneurial who excels in a start-up culture that values collaboration, flat hierarchies, and open communication.
Your role within the firm
Our mission is to back European founders not only with capital but also with all the support they need to scale their company. The past has shown that it always comes down to the best team as the decisive factor who wins in a market, expands to the next stage, or is able to turn the tables in a crisis. Therefore we’re setting up a strategic position to manage the needs of our portfolio companies from short-term support to building up initial recruiting processes to managing executive search firms and long-term organizational planning. This role is our commitment to our portfolio founders, giving them advice on the topics that are most crucial for their business success when it comes to talent.
What we are looking for
You should be able to work from London or may choose to work from one of Creandum's offices in Stockholm or Berlin.
We encourage applications from people of all backgrounds.
