“If the reputation of a company’s products and services is its face, the talent brand is its heart and soul” Hank Stringer & Rusty Rueff
Your mission at Whereby*
To drive our People and Talent marketing and brand, improve our communications, and build world-class people products while partnering with our Marketing, Design, and Brand teams to build a world-class tech-enabled culture.
*This is the mission that moves you and your team through our strategic roadmap, and should be your focus for up to a year or two.
What is Whereby all about
Freedom to work from anywhere: our mission with Whereby is to give people freedom to live and work where they thrive.
Our global HQ is in Oslo, Norway, but our users (and team) are worldwide – having been used in nearly every country in the world by millions of folk.
By making it possible to collaborate as well over video as you can in real life, we want to give you the choice to work from where your life happens. To allow you to be in a place where you can think and focus, but also allow a seamless and instant connection with others when you need to.
For our 60 team members, and also for our customers, we know that the ability to decouple location from work can be life-changing. They can afford the house they want, can spend less time commuting, be closer to nature, and their children get to grow up seeing their grandparents every day. Everyone on our team enjoys the enormous benefits that a flexible work policy brings, and we truly believe the future of work will gravitate towards our vision of the future.
People at Whereby
We strongly believe that a world-class culture is a competitive advantage. Everyone in the people team plays a role in sharpening that advantage, and thinking of our People Programmes as products we give to our team.
We’re building a new kind of people team, T-shaped, tech-enabled, and innovative. We strive to build DE&I into the core (values, performance evaluations, hiring), not just an add-on (workshops, public statements), and we work in a fully distributed, flexible, asynchronous workstyle.

What we’re looking for in our People Partner (Marketing & Brand)
Let’s start with what we’re not looking for – we aren’t neccessarily looking for someone with a background in people. We’re hoping to find someone who has experience as a marketer, designer, social media or brand manager. You’ll have an interest in brand, marketing, communications and product management, as well as finding cool hacks to improve candidate and team experiences (always aiming to delight).
We believe in everyone
We fundamentally believe talent is distributed to all of us in equal measure. We open our doors (physical or url) to everyone and we see our differences as a strength; it’s this philosophy that drives us towards our mission.
This means we see your unique history as having a value money cannot buy; we believe in the strength of every intersection of race, religion or belief, ethnic origin, different physical ability, family structure, socio-economics, age, nationality or citizenship, marital, domestic or civil partnership status, sexual orientation, gender identity.
The nuts and bolts of the role*
* Please do not see everything in this job ad as “must have”, but rather a guiding list of what we’re looking for. We know that no candidate will be the perfect match for all we’ve mentioned in this posting, so don’t be afraid to apply if you feel you’re close to the brief but not “spot on”
