Project Manager - People

São Paulo · People

We believe in the everyday hero. Those who have the courage to follow their passion, those who have the strength and determination to realize their dreams.

We believe that anyone should be able to start their own business. We provide small businesses with powerful, easy-to-use card readers and awesome customer support, so merchants can run their business and engage with their customers. We do so with genuine care for our merchants and love for our products. By taking the hassle out of getting paid, we enable small business owners to focus on what they love to do.

We are 1,700+ SumUpers in 17 offices around the globe - 700+ in Brazil only - and we are here to empower small merchants and help them thrive.

Know our People team

It's such exciting times to be part of SumUp! The global People team is a multicultural group of 70+ people spread in different offices around the world whose mission is to support SumUp's growth whereas ensuring we are one of the greatest employers in the world.

As a team, we adopt an advisory approach (vs. a shared services one) to all People challenges that we tackle. As an organization that doubles its own size year after year and believes in autonomous teams and decentralized decision-making, it is a true challenge to keep up with our own growth and go beyond traditional HR practices to design and foster the organization we really want and need to be - and this is why we need YOU onboard :)

As our Projects Manager you will:

  • Be based in our São Paulo office (we can support your relocation if needed) and report directly to our Global VP People

  • Be the owner of a few of the most relevant projects we have in People: run internal and external research and diagnostic studies, propose and deliver plans/solutions that will impact the entire organization, like agile organizational (re)design, strategic compensation design, new offices vs. global talent pools, leadership development and global talent acquisition strategy

  • Ensure that our new programs, projects and processes we rollout help us maintain our culture of no bureaucracy, no dumb processes, horizontal structures, flat hierarchies and decentralized decision-making

You'll be great for this position if:

  • You have 2+ years of experience in strategy/management consulting or managing mid to highly complex projects in hyper-growing, multinational companies. Experience in Human Resources functions is not a required for this position

  • Your problem-solving and project management skills are outstanding: once proposed a challenge, you are able to isolate the problem and its root causes, identify its drivers, analyze numbers/databases/reports/trends, prioritize potential solutions according to their impact on the problem and come up with a structured rollout plan to deliver the solution

  • You don't shy away from complexity in stakeholder management: you are able to build productive and healthy relationships with and influence people all across the organization, regardless of their cultural background, communication styles, current geographic location, function and tenure

  • Your communication is clear, objective, concise as needed - and you can be just as effective as a communicator when speaking and writing in English

  • You can put together clear, logical and effective presentations and present them yourself to diverse groups, adapting your communication style to your audience and effectively communicating the main messages and the rationale behind them

  • You are available to travel both within Brazil and overseas, as our offices are spread in different countries and continents

Why you should join us 

  • Be part of a company that lives and breathes to empower small merchants around the world

  • Be part of a truly global team and work with people from different parts of the world as you deliver your projects

  • Have full autonomy (for real!) to propose, lead and implement changes that will up our game

  • Work in flexible hours - you make your own schedule and have freedom to align with the team if you need to work remotely or take a few days off

  • Work in the coolest office around, in the heart of Pinheiros (São Paulo), close to the central station and main avenues

  • Have access to our all perks and benefits: healthcare for employees 100% paid by the company, dental assistance, private pension program, variable compensation, pension plan, transport voucher or parking space at the office building, meal/food voucher, Gympass, life insurance, barbershop and nail polish at the office, massage sessions, monthly parties at the office and more!
