SG - Chief People & Culture Officer

Permanent employee, Full-time · Singapore

About the role

People are at the heart of everything we do. We created an investment platform used by hundreds of thousands of clients across countries who invest a significant part of their savings. We wish to help our clients reach their financial goals through superior medium to long-term returns. To achieve that, StashAway needs to attract, retain, and develop the best talent available, and this is why our culture is important and comes before anything else. We prioritise our business in this order: people first, product second, and business results third.

As our Chief People & Culture Officer (CPCO), you will play an instrumental role in shaping and developing our people & culture strategy and execution, leading all areas including talent management, culture development, learning and development, performance management, compensation and benefits, organisation design, and recruitment. You will have a crucial role in shaping StashAway from its core: our people.

Additionally, as one of 8 members of our C-suite, you will have an unparalleled opportunity to be at the front seat of shaping StashAway’s evolution and growth globally.

This is a new role, and you will report to our CEO.


  • People & Culture strategy: You will be in charge of developing our people strategy and thinking holistically about the capabilities and culture we will need to develop to continue building a great company while having fun doing it. You will be the key decision-maker in shaping our future organisational design, to maintain the company’s agility as we scale.
  • People & Culture execution: You will lead and mentor a team of mission-first, high-performing P&C team members across our five offices to execute our people and culture strategy. Execution will touch all parts of what is traditionally called “Human Resources (HR)”, from recruitment to compensation, from performance management to culture building to learning and development.
  • Overall Company’s strategy and execution: You will be one of 8 C-Suite members. This small leadership team is collectively responsible for steering the Company’s strategy and making things happen across all countries. You will always have full context by participating in our quarterly board meetings. You will be a key actor in ensuring that the most important challenges and the considerable opportunities are discussed at the appropriate level.
  • 10-15 years of work experience, of which at least 5 years in a senior HR leadership role (e.g., CHRO or VP of HR) with international exposure.
  • Experience in a generalist analytical and strategy-focused role (e.g., consulting) is a plus
  • Excellent interpersonal skills and ability to develop strong working relationships across functional and geographical teams.

  • Strong, strategic planning demonstrated in a professional context, as well as in-depth knowledge of HR functions.
  • Good understanding of financial regulations and labour legislations across our relevant countries and regions.
  • Demonstrable interest in investing or wealth management.

Employee financial and physical well-being
  • Compensation package: you will receive a competitive total compensation package with Employee Stock Options (if you are a full-time employee).
  • Personalised insurance coverage: reimbursement of your personal hospitalisation and surgical insurance premium as well as panel outpatient GP, specialist, and dental claims.
  • Expatriate Pension Fund (ExPF): this employer-matching plan is made available via StashAway WorkPlace if you are a full-time expatriate based in Singapore.
  • Management fee discount: you will receive discounts on asset management fees when you invest with us.
Flexible work arrangements and policies
  • Work-from-home policy: you may choose to work from home or the office depending on what works best for you and your team.
  • Work-from-anywhere policy: you can request to work remotely for up to eight weeks in another country.
  • Unlimited paid annual leave: it should be simple for you to decide if you would like to take more or fewer days off. We trust that you are accountable for your work and know best if you need 10 or 30 days of paid annual leave that year.
  • Personal work equipment budget: to help you set up your optimal workstation wherever you are.
Learning and development opportunities
  • Annual L&D budget: you will be given SGD 1,000 with the aim to encourage and reinforce a culture of continuous learning for professional and personal development.
Team bonding budget and initiatives
  • Quarterly team bonding budget per pax (depending on COVID restrictions)
  • Bi-annual off-sites (once in Apr and Oct): a full day of company-wide team bonding activities and challenges.
About us
What We Do

StashAway is the faster way to reach your financial goals. As a digital wealth management platform, we design personalised portfolios and monthly investment plans based on your unique characteristics, and manage your portfolio with highly advanced investment strategies.

The company was founded in Singapore in 2016 with the ambition of expanding to other fast-growing Asia Pacific markets since 2018.

StashAway is led by its three founders, Michele Ferrario, former CEO of ZALORA Group; Freddy Lim, former Global Head of Derivatives Strategy of Nomura; and Nino Ulsamer, founder of several technology companies around the world.

Why We Do 

We deliver sophisticated, personalized advice at a fraction of the cost of existing, basic solutions. Our advanced technology enables us to deliver to each investor a sophisticated investment strategy that was once only available to institutions and high net-worth individuals.

Traditional investment products charge between 1.25% and 5% in annual fees. At 0.2% to 0.8% in annual management fees, StashAway offers a convenient, digital user experience with personalised portfolios with no minimum balance, no restrictions for withdrawals, and real-person client service. We encourage individuals of all net worths with portfolios of any size to build their wealth.

Who We Are

Supported by prominent advisors, the StashAway team is committed to providing investment advice and client experience of the highest quality. Our team is made up of top-tier developers, designers, fund managers, creatives, and managers with diverse backgrounds from all over the world – currently representing Australia, Belarus, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Poland, Russia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Syria, Thailand, the United Kingdom, the United States, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe.

In April 2021, StashAway raised US$25M through a Series D round led by Sequoia Capital India, with participation from returning investors Eight Roads Ventures and Square Peg.

We write our own rules, and do whatever it takes to build a substantial, meaningful product and service. We work hard, don’t cut corners, and love bonding over (lots of) food.

With regards to our culture, we want StashAway to (i) have a rewarding, diverse, radically candid and cooperative growth environment; (ii) where people work hard, take responsibilities and grow as individuals and as a team; (iii) embrace an open-minded meritocracy, and (iv) are ethical and compliant.
