Head of People Operations

Oslo, Norway · Konsus


Konsus delivers on-demand design services to premium corporate clients, primarily in the US. Konsus revolutionizes online work by building highly innovative tech and automation that enables a globally distributed team of freelancers to work together much more efficiently than a conventional professional service. By building data-driven and automated processes unlike any other existing platform, we create the fair and efficient future of online work where everyone have the same opportunities, regardless of where in the world they live.

Konsus was founded in late 2015 and became the first Norwegian company to participate in the reputable Y Combinator accelerator program in Palo Alto, California. Konsus has since received solid funding from reputable Silicon Valley investors Freestyle Venture, High Alpha, Sam Altman, Slack Fund, Alliance Venture and others. The company is headquartered in Oslo, Norway, with 110 team members working remotely across more than 40 countries.

Konsus is currently experiencing strong growth, and we are now looking for an analytical and driven superwoman or superman to help us lead our global peopleOps team. If you are an ambitious individual that wants to join one of the fastest growing companies in the Nordics, look no further and apply today!
