Team Rockstars IT is a dynamic, energetic and quirky club! With a team of over 500 selected Software Developers we build IT solutions for our customers and with our 100 HQ (headquarter) colleagues we make all our ambitions and dreams come true (think acquisitions and abroad). With us, people at 1, and thus the work happiness of our employees, is what it’s all about.

Based on our philosophy of “Happy developers, high impact,” we launched a completely new way of working in 2015: completely tailored to the needs of the IT professionals who will define the world of tomorrow! Our customers recognize this and know how to find us more and more as a result.

Rocking Diversity
At Team Rockstars IT we embrace a corporate culture as diverse as the digital world itself, from our philosophy and view of the (working) world we want to be a home for everyone. We realize that breaking through frameworks is not always easy, but that is what makes us even more driven to make a difference. We realize that the power of innovation lies in the mix of different backgrounds, perspectives and experiences, but this is where we as a company are far from. We still have a long way to go and would love to change this, together with you! So, if you are a Rockstar at heart, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or background, we challenge you to join us on an adventure to break the current status quo.

This is what energizes you

You can compare this role to that of an artist manager; you take everything off their hands so that the IT Rockstar can focus on what they do best. After an induction period, you will be managing a group of IT Rockstars in the Eindhoven area. In this role, you will know how to use your social skills and management talent to connect the IT Rockstars to our label and manage them to the next level. A happy Rockstar is the goal! So it is important that you get energy from helping people further in their development (both soft skills and technical), do not shy away from feedback and dare to make decisions.

You will work in the South Region under the Head of Talent Management and join a team of Talent Managers who work with recruitment and sales to create the cool label Team Rockstars IT. Energy and passion for helping people advance in their careers and development is at the heart of our work. With the Talent Managers club, you will work together at both regional and national levels to further develop the profession of Talent Management. You realize, in collaboration and in project form, various professionalization and improvement initiatives, ensuring that the profession of Talent Management grows along with organizational ambitions.

As Talent Manager of the very best IT professionals, you’ll make sure our IT Rockstars are happy in the broadest sense of the word. Our stars naturally change the world under the best conditions. You are their first point of contact within the organization and jump in for them! After all, the best for the IT Rockstars is the best for everyone! Fortunately, you don’t have to do this alone, because within Team Rockstars there are plenty of other specialized colleagues you can fall back on. You help your group of IT Rockstars get to the next level. One way you do this is by guiding the Rockstars in their careers and challenging them on ambition and associated development goals. Such conversations take place every 2-3 months, you visit your Rockstars at his or her client’s house, go for a walk or get together for a cup of coffee or a nice lunch – you decide what is best for your Rockstar at that moment. Additionally, you will put the 9+ experience of our Rockstars front and center by working on community building at the chapter level, surprising them with playful retro gifts, and paying sincere attention to life-changing events.

In addition to interacting with the IT Rockstars, you have an important role in client contact. You will conduct regular feedback conversations between the client and Rockstar to take the collaboration to the next level. We expect a solid interlocutor, with genuine interest in our Rockstarts’ field of work at the client, who seeks to help the IT Rockstars move forward from a constructive, forward-looking vision.
