At RevoU, we are on a mission to transform the state of higher education in Southeast Asia, and together with it, the lives of millions of people.
We are building a more effective alternative to traditional universities and vocational schools, rethinking how education should serve both students and employers' needs in Indonesia's booming digital economy.
Working hand in with industry leaders, top companies and learning scientists we develop together the most effective programs to deliver the learning that today’s job market needs. We obsess about our students' success and are relentlessly driven by unlocking each of our student’s full potential, regardless of their background.
In the short span of two years we have already helped hundreds of students transform their careers, with thousands more waiting to start their journey with us in the upcoming months.
We are looking for our Head of Recruiting to build and lead our Talent Acquisitionfunction, towards our mission of making RevoU the best place work in Southeast Asia.
We believe recruiting is the foundation of every past, present and future success of our business. Our thinking is well incapsulated by the following quote from the former VP of People Operations at Google:
“At Google, we front-load our people investment. This means the majority of our time and money spent on people is invested in attracting, assessing, and cultivating new hires. We spend more than twice as much on recruiting, as a percentage of our people budget, as an average company. If we are better able to select up front, that means we have less work to do with them once they are hired”
If you are thinking alike and are looking to have a real impact on people's lives by giving them the education needed to change their professional lives for the better, then we might have the right role for you!
As the leader of such function, you will have the opportunity not only to build the most talented team around you, but shaping our entire business.
Based wherever you will want to (we are a fully distributed company), you will report to and work directly with our CEO & Founder, and will be working across a very broad range of topics, alternating between highly strategic decisions and day to day operational execution.
More specifically you will be expected to
REQUIREMENTS (aka 'what you bring to the table')
What would the best profile look
IMPORTANT: given the importance of the role we are quite flexible in tailoring it to the right candidate and her/his experience. This means either limiting some of the original scope (for example removing employer branding from it) or further expanding it (taking on additional people operations responsibilities for example)
Lastly, we have a strong bias for hiring more junior people who can “punch above their weight class”.
Our first promise - the ride of a lifetime
You will be joining the company in its most exciting phase, where things will move and change at a crazy pace and where the impact you will have on the overall business trajectory will be huge. You will witness the rapid scaling of our organization from 80 of us (we were only 10 of us just one year ago!!) to hundreds of incredibly talented and diverse people in the months and years to come.
Our company growth will mean much faster career growth than other companies of similar size. Our most talented junior employees who joined us 1 year ago, are for example now in charge of entire teams, working on some of the most exciting strategic and operational topics within the education industry.
The second promise - a good place to work
We are building a company that takes the growth of its employees on the same level as that of its students. It’s our mandate to make every one of our employees perform at the maximum of their capacity so that they can do here, at RevoU, the very best work of their lives. In practical terms:
The third promise – you will feel proud about your work
We believe that finding a fulfilling career should be among the most important priorities in one's life and that today’s job market offers endless opportunities to change the lives of many, for the better. You will play a fundamental role in making this possible.
And nothing will beat the sense of accomplishment once you will see that happening. Especially once you see that happening at scale.

These are 3 most important promises we are making to you.
If you are looking for typical ‘startup’ benefits: flexible and remote working environment (fyi - only 50% of our staff live in Jakarta), an attractive package, premium health insurance, etc => we are offering you all these benefits as well
But don’t join us for these, join us first and foremost for the 3 reasons above.
