HR Specialist

Job description

We are looking for an HR Specialist (or, as we like to say, Employee Experience Specialist) to join our Employee Experience squad in our Netherlands office!

Who we are

Nmbrs is a tight-knit family full of hard-working, passionate and dedicated professionals. We develop cutting edge software that provides our customers with the efficiency and control they need to give their employees the best possible HR and payroll service.

At Nmbrs, we have a particular way of approaching HR (and everything). We have no managers so we work together in a different way to achieve our goals. This can especially be seen in how we address our employee journey. Our employee experience squad, consisting of 4 HR specialists, focuses on creating the best employee experience ever! In your role, you’ll provide 360-degree support to your dedicated squads (based both in our Amsterdam and Lisbon office), combining facilities and HR as together they make the whole employee experience.

Apart from your squads, you’ll focus on long term projects with your EE colleagues to create and maintain an environment where our Nmbrs colleagues like to be. Doing so, you'll work closely together with our Candidate experience - (recruitment & employer branding) and Coaching-squad (learning & development). 

Job responsibilities

  • (Pre-)onboarding and off-boarding of Nmbrs colleagues:
    Making sure new employees feel welcome and accommodated from day one and leave with a smile!;
  • Responsibility for part of the HR communication, administration, processes and individual cases:
    Think contracts, mutations, salaries, labour law cases, sickness, immigration of expats, leave, performance, travels, compensation and benefits, internal events (such as birthdays or other celebrations for the office);
  • Conduct feedback/development conversations for employees;
  • Together with the whole HR team, carry out & build further on the HR processes;
  • Work on Employee Experience projects:
    such as a healthy work environment, cultural inclusion, team collaboration, implementation and improvement of more HR tooling in our processes, improvement of the overall employee experience;
  • Responsible for making the office run smoothly.

A day at the office

We continue working at the office, whenever it’s possible, but we have adjusted all our activities to be done from home for now. So, all the things you can think of being done with and for employees, are mostly online for now.  Still, this is what you can expect from a “normal” day at the office!

You start the day with the daily check-in with your squad. What cases are you working on? What are your goals for the day? After that, you might have a video call with a new joiner for their first-month conversation. Later you check in with your colleagues to brainstorm f.e. on the ways to improve the onboarding experience. In the meantime you check your Slack (we don’t really have an ‘email’ culture), to answer questions of employees. Contract renewal is coming up as well, so you retrieve the feedback from the peer group and send suggestions based on that to our Management Team. On Fridays, you’ll end the day with our weekly Company meeting & online drinks to kick start the weekend!

Some possible projects you and your squads will work on in 2021:

  • Improving first-year feedback conversations/cycle with new employees;
  • Health and safety at work;
  • Reviewing secondary benefits package for our Amsterdam and Lisbon office;
  • No managers approach: creating awareness and educating employees on how to take responsibility for their (and their colleagues’) employee experience;
  • Employee engagement and working from home.

The salary range for this position, working 40h per week, is between 41k and 49k.

Working at Nmbrs

We have no managers and all of the responsibilities that would fall on them, fall on everyone. This means that it’s everyone’s responsibility to give feedback, recognise our colleagues, address people when something is not right, give a helping hand in recruitment and make sure our surroundings are in order. We all work together to make Nmbrs a great product and a great place to work!

Perks and Benefits

  • A flat organisational structure that gives you the freedom to do what you do best;
  • You’re not alone in this. A personal coach is there to help you with your personal and professional growth;
  • A different, agile and no-managers HR approach;
  • We ensure a healthy work-life balance;
  • To support the well-being of our employees, we provide the possibility to collect equipment from the office, but we have also allocated a budget for extra supplies to facilitate working from home;
  • Weekly and monthly activities to maintain health, commitment and connection;
  • Nice weather? Take your colleagues or your friends on our own Nmbrs boat!;
  • We have an apartment in Lisbon and in Amsterdam that every employee can use;
  • We’re a little different, not crazy. And we hope you are too.


We are looking for you if you:

  • Have 5 years of work experience in corporate HRM in companies in the Netherlands;
  • Have up-to-date knowledge about the Dutch labour law and payroll;
  • Have an HBO/WO level of education in HR / Work and Organisational Psychology or other related studies

  • Feel energised by every day being different. You can switch easily between tasks/conversations and you like to solve ad-hoc problems;
  • Have a hands-on mindset;
  • Be a communicative and empathetic person. You love to keep everyone happy and to connect with people.
