Hiring Success Manager EMEA



Posted on Sunday, July 7, 2024
Remofirst provides Global payroll and compliance for remote teams. We believe in Freedom of Work. To do this, we empower Employers to be free from geographical boundaries and state lines, and we allow employees to be free to pursue opportunities wherever they may exist.

We work with a global network of Employer of Record (EoR) partners to deliver our services. An EoR is an organization that helps companies expand internationally by hiring and paying employees on behalf of another company. EoRs assume the responsibility for all formal employment tasks, including payroll processes and compliance documentation. Simply put, using an EoR allows companies to legally and efficiently employ workers in other countries without having to set up a local entity or risk violating local employment laws.

Remofirst was founded in 2021, remote-first since the very beginning. We believe in people, excellence, and delivery. To read more, please visit our website.

The Remofirst team is made up of problem solvers and overachievers, and we seek out others who are also passionate and relentless in their respective missions.

We work closely with our Sales, Product, and Finance colleagues to deliver a world-class experience.
