Dear People Growth Specialist, we might be looking for you!

Do you default to design for autonomy and self-leadership rather than rigid policies, processes, and rules? Keep on reading.

Are you a senior structure provider with special expertise within professional development? Please read a little more.

Do you want to be part of an extraordinary growth journey at a company where HR never will be a centralized service function, but a catalyst and facilitator of personal growth? This might be for you!

With the vision of turning a new generation of leaders into listeners, Mentimeter is growing rapidly, and the people that work with and for our people are vital for our success. We are now looking for a People Growth Specialist with expertise within professional development, to join our People Growth team. We are not interested in doing things just like everyone else, but instead, we want to deliver at the forefront of what “HR” can be in the 21st century. So, if you are still reading and can feel some sweet adrenalin of excitement pumping through your wise veins - please apply!


  • Take the strategic lead to develop our organization within the broader area of professional development and employee engagement, including Salary strategy and mapping, Career development, Internal recruitment, Succession planning, Compensation, Benefits, and Perks. Yes, these are classic HR words, but your execution does not have to be.
  • Head the initiating, development, and rollout of programs, projects & initiatives that are essential for continuous employee performance and growth.
  • Empower, prepare & guide our people leaders to be the best enablers of individual career development they can be, not by enforcing strict rules & policies, but by creating flexible frameworks for leaders to be creative within.
  • Creating guidelines and tools to support our managers in ongoing development conversations with employees including topics as expectations, performance, salary, developmental feedback, and promotions.
  • Choose & lead our utilization of the latest HR technology and SaaS tools that both help us scale effectively and enable us to focus on the right things.
  • Together with your team, engage in strategic, creative, and operational work within HR in general.

Work with great people

Front-end Developer
"Dog videos vs. Cat videos is the ever ongoing fight of Internet. Soner has clearly picked a side: Doggos. The cuter and hairier the better."
Business Development Director - Sales
"All the way from Italian metropolitan via small town of Switzerland to Stockholm to be a part of the Menti-family. It's like it was written in the stars (check the cancer sign)."
Product Manager
"Anna is a Stockholmer and a part of the Mentimeter KTH alumni crew. When she's not innovating at Mentimeter, she's doing jumping jacks on the handball court or partying in the USA."
Head of Brand
"As a kid Carl wanted to be a fashion designer, but ended up doing the next best thing - branding and PR. When he's not at Menti he's touring Sweden with his cover band (apparently they're terrible)."

Skills & Requirements
