Job description

Watch This Teaser to Get a Vibe for the Tribe:

Growth Tribe Is…

Growth Tribe launched 2 years ago with the vision to empower humans to rapidly gain skills in a fast changing world.

In 2 years time we’ve grown from a team of 3 to a team of 26 people.

We're Europe's first Growth Academy backed by Facebook, the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and StartupAmsterdam. We’re a young rapidly growing source of growth education in Europe. We’re specialised in teaching digital growth skills (data-driven growth through experimentation, A.I. for non-coders) with hands-on and cutting-edge exercises. Our entire curriculum is built in-house with more than 2700+ people trained so far. And we’re just getting started.

We already teach our 2-Day Growth Marketing Course in London on a monthly basis, but are now ready to further expand into the UK by providing more courses and start offering in-house programs to train entire companies.

Your Daily Grind

We’re growing fast and our thirst for people that are filled with passion for education and growth hacking is immense. We’ve the leading growth hackers of Europe working for Growth Tribe and want to keep the standard high for new hires.

As we work towards doubling the size of our team, we need a sourcer who can find the absolute best candidates across all channels to support our Talent & People Manager.

You will help Growth Tribe grow one talent at a time.

What Makes You Special

Sourcing/HR/Recruitment experience OR a recently completed university degree in HR or something comparable

You love the idea of finding hidden talent online & getting them excited about our jobs 

You're tech-savvy and able to find different tools and platforms (or other creative techniques) for sourcing talent

You’re keen on learning growth hacking techniques and apply them to sourcing talent!

Our Culture is What Makes Us Unique

Get Shit Done

No Excuses: We execute faster than anyone else. Be resourceful with speed. Mistakes may hurt us temporarily but being slow will kills us.

Data Levels All Arguments

Come to conversations and meetings with data (qualitative or quantitative). Our decisions will be sharper and our meetings shorter.

Always be Learning, Always be Teaching

 We are lifelong learners. We are a secret society and we make each other stronger within the Tribe. The world changes every week, learn and teach others.

It’s OK to Fail

 We value risk-taking. Mistakes are totally fine when you run experiments. We’re here to experiment.

Minimum Delightful Experiments 

Ship fast and break things... but also watch out for customer delight and the Growth Tribe brand.

Innovate or Die & Always Be Paranoid

 We never let ourselves forget: What got us here won’t get us there. Always optimise and innovate.

We’re a Secret Society

 Don’t share secrets and stories outside the Tribe.

No Aggravation. No Bullshit.

 1% of drama creates 99% of aggravation.

Have Empathy & Help Out

 For customers and for teammates. We’re all human: “Did they eat? Are they sleepy? Is it a bad day?” And No-one is too good god for any task.

And please...

Don’t eat Bananas with Eye Contact! It’s really awkward...

We Help Companies of All Sizes Grow, Fast.

Special Mentions

“Now that I’m writing this blog post, a couple of days after the course, there’s only one way to describe my experience: ‘WOW’. I’ve never attended such an interesting course in my life!“

Ronald Voorn

Ex CMO Heineken & Teacher at University of Twente

"While I had my permanent job in Rome, I did the only "rational" thing. I packed my bags, and moved to Amsterdam to join the Growth Tribe Academy. Everything you thought you knew about marketing is obsolete. Believe me... life begins at the edge of your comfort zone. Let the Tribe growth hack your life!

PS: Where am I now? Happily growth hacking for Catawiki, Europe's fastest growing startup!"
