People Operations Specialist (m/f/d)

Location Hamburg


At the heart of every good company are talented people, and that is the secret of our undeniable success. We have a diverse mix of extraordinary people drawn from many countries across a wide range of ages, backgrounds and skills. Our eclectic mix of experiences and personalities, as well as our open flat structure, create a vibrant and unique team culture.

You and the role

As an independent thinker with an empathetic nature, you’ve got outstanding communication skills, the ability to forge genuine relationships across the business and an inherent ability to show integrity and compassion at all times. As working with people daily, you are a confident and open-minded team player, able to thrive in a fast-paced environment and feel at home working with the complexity of a global organisation.

You’ll be based at our Softship office in Hamburg, work within the global WiseTech people team and enjoy the high energy and perks of a technology company. You maintain a close exchange of ideas with the management and people leaders as an impulse generator, sparring partner and designer.

You are the contact person for our team members and help them with all questions regarding their employment relationship. You support both operational and strategic projects.

You are responsible for People related administration processes including on-boarding and off-boarding processes. You make sure that our employees feel comfortable with us and are in constant contact with them to know their concerns and needs.

You will work with the Australian payroll team on the monthly payroll process.

With several years of experience in a comparable function and in supporting change and transformation processes in a dynamic corporate, you are motivated and ready to move into a role with global reach.

You have a good knowledge of German labour law, a relevant degree and a high level of social and advisory skills that enable you to build trust. You will be experienced in all aspects of the employment lifecycle.

You feel comfortable communicating in German and English (spoken and written).

We operate as a meritocracy and our flat structure and lack of hierarchy reflects this, all creating the perfect opportunity for the right self-starter to leave their mark.
