About the Role:
Planet is looking for a resourceful and collaborative HR Generalist to join our EMEA People team, supporting our growing entity in the Netherlands (currently about 50 people, working both from our Haarlem office and remote). As our first local HR person, you will play a key role and have a lasting impact at Planet, building the local HR operations processes and ensuring the team is set-up for long-term success.
If you love working with passionate people from lots of different backgrounds and to question the status quo, we’d love to hear from you! It’s truly an exciting time to join and leave your mark.
Impact You’ll Own:
Planet acquired its Dutch entity (Vandersat B.V.) at the end of last year and we’ve been building solid relationships and laying the groundwork for a cohesive employee experience, but there’s still so much to do! The integration is a work in progress, and our EMEA People team needs a strong partner in the Netherlands with local HR expertise to work with the team and support getting us to the next level. This position will be based onsite for three days a week.
In this role:
What You Bring:
Ideally this is a full-time role, but we are open to part-time (80% minimum)
What Makes You Stand Out:
Benefits While Working at Planet:
Why we care so much about Belonging.
We’re dedicated to helping the whole Planet, and to do that we must strive to represent all of it within each of our offices and on all of our teams.

If this job intrigues you, but you’re thinking you might not have all the qualifications, please… do apply! At Planet, we are looking for well-rounded people from around the world who can contribute to more ways than just what is listed in this job description. We don’t just fill positions, we aspire to fulfill people’s careers, most excited about folks who are motivated by our underlying humanitarian efforts. We are a few orbits around the sun before we get to where we want to be, so we hope you’re excited to come along for the ride.
