People Ops Manager – French Fluent – Paris Job at Paradox – Paris (75)

Wait a minute.

Deep inside you are looking for a new adventure with…

Freedom : feeling free to work remotely or hybrid and being trusted to deliver

Ambition : growing up surrounded by smart colleagues driven to create something big

Impact : contributing to transform people lives at scale

And you deserve it because you are a Top Gun People Operations Manager:

A Detail Oriented freak, loving when things are near to perfect

Driven & a Productivity Machine, you love to work hard, and for sure play hard 😉

System, Process oriented, why lose time, and repeat the same mistakes ?

Digitally Savvy: At ease with the latest tools, how to set them up and use them at their full potential

Are you fulfilled by contributing to making teams feel happy and safe because you make People Operations smooth, efficient and well managed?

For us it goes beyond drafting contracts or processes, people are our greatest strength so it’s about creating an awesome employee experience whilst protecting the best interests of the company.

We are inspired to make Paradox one of the greatest companies on Earth through our People Ops team

If that inspires you, then, you have found your next adventure.

This is a full-time position, carried out from the comfort of your living room (or wherever you want) or from our amazing offices in Paris, Dubai, or Barcelona.


We are convinced that people don’t want a job anymore!

They are thirsty for a project with meaning, either through entrepreneurship or intrapreneurship

But…making it happen is quite hard without finding what truly inspires you and learning the soft skills you need to get there : productivity, leadership, public speaking, coaching, stress management…

This is why we craft trainings & educational content to provide a set of tools and strategies centered around soft skills, self-growth and performance.

We deliver through apps, e-learning platforms, events and a strong social media presence.

Paradox has one goal: to help people and organizations live their true ambition

The challenge is that some people experience learning as boring, too hard, or on the contrary : for losers.

Yeah, we all experienced that boring teacher or stumble on this video with unsubstantiated/crazy theories

It needs to change!!

So we travel the world with learning designers, and researchers and surround ourselves with top entrepreneurs ( Richard Branson, Marc Simoncini, Fred Mazzella ), top athletes (Mike Horn, Frank Leboeuf), artists (Gad Elmaleh, Barry Osborne, producer of Lord of the Rings and Matrix)… to reverse engineer their strategies.

️Our ambition is to make our training and coaching as attractive as watching Netflix and to make success the only option for our clients. (whatever success means for them)

So far, this approach has paid off and has enabled us to exceed 2 million followers on social networks, and to organize online events and training courses attended by thousands of people.

But we wanted more, so we created 2 new brands with international ambitions.

And with them we have 3 dreams :
Helping 100 000 people achieve 1 dream and stick their pictures on a wall we call the 100 000 dreams WALL

Have Will Smith and Richard Branson in our next documentary

Reinvent Education & Create a badass platform to develop yourself
