Job Description

The real economy employs 3 billion people in frontline jobs, yet frontline teams are still left to choose between paper and Excel or decade-old workforce management solutions to take care of the most important part of their businesses – their people.

Enter Sona, the Frontline Operating System; an end-to-end platform to manage a shift-based workforce and empower its teams. Sona upgrades the functionality you expect from any workforce management software – including scheduling, time & attendance, HR, and Payroll – with industry-specific plugins, dedicated features to empower staff, and a consumer-grade experience that simplifies frontline work for everyone.  

In just two years, we’ve already made a deep impact on the lives of tens of thousands of frontline workers and the operation of their organisations, grown the team to 80+, and following our recent $27.5m Series A fundraise, have secured the backing of notable VC’s like Felicis, Northzone, Gradient Ventures (Google), SpeedInvest, Antler, and Notion Capital plus angels like Tom Blomfield (Monzo).

It’s a hugely exciting time to be joining the team, as we’re still small enough that you’ll have a significant impact on the company, growth trajectory and culture, but large enough that we have a great structure, experienced leaders and world-class benefits in place (such as being fully remote and flexible, and only working 4.5 days a week). More on working at Sona here.

About the Role

Sona has been a fully remote, flexible, and distributed team since day 1 and we have steadily built a market-leading startup EVP that has helped us to hire and retain a great early team. 

Throughout our first three years, our People Operations have been handled by a combination of our Founding, Talent, and Finance teams. As we approach 100 team members later this year, it’s time to level up our People team with a first dedicated hire who will own all of our core People processes and help us implement initiatives to make Sona as great of a place to work as we can. 


Day to day, you will be: 

  • Maintaining employment records across our key tools (Personio, Deel, Figures etc) to enable data analysis and ensure compliance 
  • Owning on/off-boarding processes, benefits programs, and People reporting
  • Identifying and implementing initiatives to improve employee engagement, such as company events and recognition programs
  • Acting as a key HR point of contact for the team


We don’t have strict requirements but hopefully lots of the following apply to you: 

  • You’re experienced in owning and executing key People tasks and processes, ideally in an international, remote, and high-growth company
  • You’re excited by the prospect of working on core initiatives that will make Sona a great place to work and help us attract and retain the best team we can
  • You’re highly organised, detail-oriented, and capable of being a trusted advisor to both our team and leadership


  • £40-45k salary (or local currency equivalent)
  • 4.5 day standard working week 
  • Share options
  • Fully remote and flexible working
  • 35 days annual leave (25 days standard plus 10 flexible public holiday days)
  • Pension contributions matched up to 5% 
  • Comprehensive Health Insurance via Bupa
  • Enhanced parental leave & pay
  • Co-working space stipend
  • Quarterly all expenses paid team retreats
  • The latest Macbook and equipment for your home office
  • Professional development budget
  • Unlimited free books

Working at Sona

We take our health and mental health seriously, believing that we can only perform to our best when we are healthy, happy, and in control of when, where, and how we work. That’s why we’re fully remote and everyone works a 4.5 day week (you choose when you take the half day) with a fully flexible schedule.

We balance this with regular virtual stand-ups and all-hands so we’re all aligned, and paid-for, in-person meet-ups so you can get to know your colleagues.
