Your mission

At Papercup we’re on a mission to make the world’s videos watchable in any language. We’ve invented a patented AI system that generates humanlike synthetic voices across languages, allowing people to watch video content in the language of their choice. Our translated and dubbed content has allowed the likes of Insider, Discovery, Sky News, and Canva to reach over 300 million people globally in just the last year. Having just completed a $20 million Series A round, we're on the hunt for top people to join our ambitious mission.

We’re backed by some of the industry’s heaviest hitters - venture funds like Octopus Ventures, world-renowned angel investors including Des Traynor (co-founder of Intercom) and John Collison (co-founder of Stripe), as well as global media groups like Sky and Guardian Media Group.

We are driven, curious and passionate - our company culture is imperative to us and we set a high bar for those who join the team. We're also fun to be around (at least that's what people tell us).

About the role:
​As a Senior People Partner, you will be joining a People and Talent function that is driven to make Papercup a place that people love working at.
You’ll report to the Head of People who cares deeply about creating an environment where people can do their best work and be their best selves. You'll be a strategic partner in scaling this culture as we grow and will be creative and flexible with a ‘human first’ approach to People and Talent.

As a Senior People Partner, you will:

  • Be a trusted partner who supports, coaches and advises our team on anything and everything people related
  • Be a key pillar in scaling our culture and a champion of inclusion, diversity, and living our values.
