[HIRED] Become Puzl's HR Generalist
👋 Hey there! We are Puzl CowOrKing, we are actively expanding our business in Sofia and Budapest, and we are looking for an awesome, communicative and open-minded person to take care of our core HR responsibilities and of our IT community.
Look, it's pretty simple. Our team is growing constantly and we want to keep it that way. That means investing more time in recruiting great humans, handling their benefits, payroll and documents with greater care, and helping onboard and train them properly. We also have more than 600 amazing IT humans spending A LOT of time in our coworking spaces. We need to take proper care of those humans, too. Onboard them and show them the ways of the coworking, connect them so they can collaborate and help each other, and find new ways to help them grow personally + professionally. You know, the stuff that actually makes a community a community.
Who are you people!?
Ah, right! We should probably explain. In short, we're a group of young humans who are building IT-only coworking spaces for IT humans across CEE. So far, we've built 3 of them in Sofia, Bulgaria and now it's time to expand abroad. We are also making an amazing cafe/bar on our Roof. We are starting with a mind-blowing one in Budapest.
