Job Detail


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

  • Build scalable processes & procedures company wide to be able to attract and retain the most incredible talent to join our journey.
  • Build our talent execution team to increasingly equip us with larger and larger recruiting capacity
  • Serve as main POC for all our hiring managers to identify staffing needs and educating hiring managers on ‘best practices’ in terms of recruitment processes. You will be expected to evangelize our belief that "hiring is everyone's responsibility", and make sure every managers has it high in her/his priorities
  • Establish a data-driven approach to recruiting and hiring, by matching our business needs with our recruiting capacity
  • Work with our Marketing teams to create and deliver innovative marketing campaigns that strengthen RevoU brand and supports our goal to be considered the best startup to work at in SEA
  • Build strong external relationships with universities, students association and other third-parties to exponentially expand our talent pool
  • Work closely with our Senior Management and Finance team on the topics of compensation, incentives and stock option plans

REQUIREMENTS (aka 'what you bring to the table')

What would the best profile look

  • Unconditional passion for finding and convincing the most impressive talent in Indonesia (and outside of ID) to join us in our crazy ambitious journey
  • Hands-on experience in full-cycle recruiting, proven by prior work experience in Talent Acquisition roles or similar for high-growth tech environment. Ideally you have already built recruiting processes from scratch and managed a recruiting team
  • Highest standards: both in terms of delivering the most delightful recruiting experience to our candidates and (even more importantly) in terms of our talent bar. We want every new hire to raise the average talent bar of the company and you will play a central role to keep this happening in parallel with the steep increase of our headcount
  • Business savviness: we will require you to have a deep understanding of our business and of the differences between all various roles within our company, so to truly build value added partnerships with our hiring managers
  • Highly structured and process driven, with the ability of keeping the big picture in mind: the scope of work will be quite broad and you will need to prioritize what is important and optimize for it (80:20 rule).
  • Comfortable with numbers and drawing insights from analytics to make our hiring process smarter and more efficient.
  • Ability to get sh*t done: until you will have built the team around you to support you on the execution, you will need to directly work with all our hiring managers on a day to day basis, throughout the whole recruitment process: from sourcing, pre-screening to negotiating and finalising the contract with candidates.
  • Excellent written + verbal communication (Bahasa + English) and interpersonal skills, able to develop high quality relationships across all functions and levels within the organisation and external stakeholders (career services from universities, etc)
  • Passionate about education and obsessed about seeing our students succeeding: we are building a culture of people obsessively passionate about our mission and the impact we can have on the lives of millions of people. Hiring people with the same degree of genuine drive, makes everything much easier (and more fun)
  • (nice to have) Confident communication style with the ability to simplify complex messages into persuasive marketing material relevant to our audience

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:

  • we deeply value employee appreciation and we are going the extra mile to make everyone’s work feel appreciated and valuable
  • we are creating a culture of transparency and radical, caring feedback. That is, of radical candor, keep a zero-tolerance for bad management, making coaching and mentoring one of our fundamental value, not only towards our students but also towards our employees. For a more in-depth view of the type of organization we are building, you can read some of our Founder’s thoughts on these topics
  • this translates into record- high employee satisfaction (our monthly eNPS hovers on the 70-80 range), very low employees turnover and a disproportionate share of new hires coming from our employees referrals

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.

You can see the impact we had on some of our students by reading some of their reviews


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.
