Talent Engagement Lead

Bogotá Colombia


We are seeking a Talent Engagement Lead at Polymath Ventures, who will be a key agent to drive our cultural values, and build an exceptional working environment and career for all members of our company.  The Talent Engagement Lead key goal is to develop exceptional staff (through great training, development, the correct roles, etc) that stay with Polymath, happily, for many many years. 

This will be a new and critical role within our organization. We have grown to 30 amazing people within Polymath, and over 350 people across the Polymath group (including the ventures we have built). With that growth, we need much more focus on the actual staff of our company. 

The Talent Engagement Lead will have three main areas of focus:

  1. Lead all people development initiatives at Polymath Ventures itself (from onboarding to keeping our staff for happy and fulfilled for many years, and everything in between)
  2. Help the ventures build their own exceptional development practices
  3. Help the Polymath Ventures group as a whole (all Polymath organizations/ventures) develop its people (e.g. through cross learnings between ventures).

We are looking for someone that can build amazing development programs and career plans (high-level thinking), but can also manage necessary and important practices like onboarding, performance reviews, etc (detailed thinking). In that sense, we are looking for a do-it-all "unicorn", with the right mindset, raw abilities, emotional intelligence, and great attitude to succeed in this very important role. 

Other areas that the Talent Engagement Lead  would managent: onboarding, performance reviews, career plans, mentorship programs, retention plans, staffing, compensation and benefits plans, etc. 


We offer an exceptional learning environment, with great people from all over the world (17 countries represented right now!) working on really hard problems. We are a young company, in a highly entrepreneurial, fast-paced environment.  We can't offer you the most fancy office with all the perks, but we can offer you one of the strongest teams in Latin America, working to build new companies from scratch. Our company culture offers an international perspective, a casual, friendly office, and a spirit of performance and growth. 


  • 4+ years of relevant work experience in human resources and/or talent development
  • Experience in creating and executing many types of talent practices from scratch
  • High empathy and emotional intelligence - can relate well with people from different backgrounds, build trust and solve problems in a genuine and humane way
  • Analytical horsepower to measure current org gaps and the success of each initiative
  • Willingness to work in a collaborative startup work environment (scappy, bias towards action)
  • Ability to work full-time in Bogotá
  • Complete fluency in English and Spanish
