In four years, we've raised over 300 million euros in funding and helped people reclaim more than one billion euros.


Your challenge: 

As our People Operations Manager within the People Operations team, you will ensure that Taxfix employees stay focused on their work and make their lives easy and enjoyable through your professional expertise and relentless drive to improve processes. Reporting to our Team lead People Operations and collaborating with People & Organization and Talent Acquisition, you'll be the main contact person when it comes to payroll and together with your colleagues from the people operations team you will bring Taxfix to the next level.



Your responsibilities: 

  • You are the first point of contact for employees and managers for payroll, social security and labour law topics and provide the best possible people experience with your positive attitude, helpfulness and know-how.
  • Contribute to the creation of a culture that empowers people to take ownership of organizing their professional well-being and work/life romance.
  • Make sure the operational onboarding process runs smoothly and contribute to having the best people experience possible while constantly challenge the status quo, always trying to achieve more with the same resources (personnel and costs).
  • Play a key role within the design, implementation, communication, and optimisation of all people operations processes from employee entry to exit.
  • With guidance from the Team Lead Internal Operations and Senior People Operations Manager, process operational personnel administration, including absence management, preparation of contract documents, job references, personnel master data maintenance, etc. 
  • Continually seek out opportunities to automate and standardise processes and repetitive tasks, with scalability and efficiency in mind at all times!

Your profile: 

  • You are an expert in payroll with a minimum experience of 2 years HR administration / People operations or generalist HR experience within a fast-paced organisation. 
  • You bring organisational skills and passion for enabling others to be as organised as you through creating and implementing intuitive processes.
  • You are familiar in working with a HR platform- we use HiBob, so it would be fantastic if you've experience with that- but this is not an essential.
  • You are data driven, a natural preference for results/KPI's driven environment; data is at the heart of everything you do. 
  • You want to become an expert in your field, continuously learn and grow.
  • You have a passion for operational excellence; you get a buzz when you've created a super smooth, efficient process.
  • You speak German and English fluent.
