People & Culture or Business Administrator (f/*/m)


6 months ago

Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: Europe only

Category: Human Resources

Frontastic is looking for a person to support us in the areas of People & Culture or Business Administration as full-time employee or freelancer.


We're a fast growing startup founded in 2017 to bring APIs into better human interaction. We offer a cloud platform accelerating teams to create mobile first frontends for the API economy. We're doing this as a 100% remote native company: currently 28 people from 8 countries in Europe (and counting).


The management and administration of Frontastic sees itself as an internal service provider. We try to bring a very high benefits with as little effort as possible. Our goal is to help all people at Frontastic to be able to do their work in a relaxed way and to help them to become even more productive. That's why we call ourselves the "Empowering Area" inside Frontastic.

We're looking for new members of the team, which is currently formed of one of the founders and one employee. Our tasks are very broad, so it's very difficult for us to name specific knowledge and skills required. The most important thing is that you bring personal experience from working in an internationally distributed remote-only company.

Ideally, you should've already gained leadership experience yourself. We're not talking about job titles, yet, as we try to have as little hierarchy as possible at Frontastic. If you're explicitly looking for a "VP" or "Head of" title, you're probably in the wrong place. To be clear, this is only about job title itself, not about responsibilities - the more you take the lead yourself, the better.


Depending on your personal skills, preferences, and experience, you might:

  • Handle candidate management

  • International onboarding incl. legal registration as an employer

  • Empower our people and company culture

  • Process international payrolls

  • Process all parts of internal business administration and bookkeeping

  • Help with all kinds of legal stuff like contracts or during funding rounds

  • You'll actively drive the change that inevitably happens within a growing high-tech company

  • You may speak at meetups and conferences


  • You reside and work in Europe

  • Worked for 5 years in People & Culture or Administration in a distributed international multi-team environment

  • Attitude and skills to survive in a complex and highly dynamic environment– and you know how to grow this attitude in your co-workers

  • Good writing and communication skills in English

  • You love administrative tasks and to work on the team and company

  • You love to make your work even more efficiently with state of the art tools like Zapier

  • You enjoy building organisations and processes.

  • Skills in either international HR, tax, legal, bookkeeping, … (we already said that we cover a very wide range of topics, didn't we?)


Our team strives to constantly improve itself following these values:

  • Make an Impact: We’re here to change the industry and we’re in it to win it. We’re incredibly focused and our main focus is on customer success. We boldly go out of our comfort zones, we support each other and we love doing what we do.

  • Thirst for Learning: We’re addicted to learning and we learn from everything. We embrace our failures as they’re something we can learn from and only help us to improve. We think differently and we know that change is good. We’re curious and innovation leads the way, we're constantly on the lookout for new ideas that can help our customers (and the world).

  • Diversity Rules: We’re proud to be a diverse team spread across the world. We empower the under-represented and we build a safe community for everyone to be themselves while holding each other to account when needs be. We use asynchronous communication as we’re a remote company and need to be aware that we’re not always online at the same time.

  • We're In This Together: As colleagues, with our customers, and with our communities, co-operation and collaboration is key. We help one another as much as we can and we care for each other. We celebrate our successes together and we strive to find the right balance in our lives.

  • Transparency First: We make all information as public as possible and we’re direct (as well as truthful) in all our communications. We don’t just explain what we’re doing but why we’re doing it. This is how we create positive relationships and move forward together.


We're a 100% remote-native company. We make intensive use of tools like Slack or video conferencing. We try to find a good balance between focused work and communication or in other words between asynchronous and personal communication.

We don’t have fixed expectations regarding working hours and it's normal for us to be able to take care of private matters during the day - e.g. visits to the doctor or picking up children from school.

We meet four times a year in person: one five-day retreat and three two-day retrospective focused meetings.


For this particular job we are offering to pay between 40.000 to 70.000 € based on experience and skills. Optionally you can get Virtual Shares from our Virtual Shares Options Program AVSOPB as part of your compensation. In addition, we offer 28 vacation days and a €200/month co-working stipend.

Since we currently work from 9 different countries (and counting), it's very difficult to offer consistent benefits beyond that. We strive to find a good balance between local laws and conventions, and general fairness. And we're always open to your suggestions (especially since it'll be part of your job).


If this job sounds interesting to you, please send a short tweet-style "why-me" to [email protected] and have your CV attached. Do you still have questions? Then don't hesitate to get in touch via the same address!

Before you apply, please check if any restrictions apply in terms of time zone or country.

This job has a geo-restriction in place: Europe only.
