What do we expect from you?

You like working in a small and agile team with a strong bias for action—we ideate, we experiment, we learn. You are curious, open-minded, and you proactively search for new insights in the field of digital democracy. Besides, you are eager to learn quickly and recognise yourself in the following profile:

  • You have finished or are currently pursuing a degree in Business Administration, Marketing, Economics or have an equivalent form of education.

  • You have had some experience in marketing in previous positions and you are enthusiastic about marketing, your strengths include communication, team spirit and a sense of responsibility.

  • You are tech-savvy and comfortable working with digital tools.

  • You have the ability and excitement to work proactively and independently in a fast-paced environment.

  • You are a team player and you thrive in a cross-functional and collaborative set-up.

  • You have an autonomous work style. You have the ability to lead and execute projects from start to finish, thanks to a strong skill set in project management and communication.

  • You have a very good proficiency in English and fluency in Dutch (C2).

Eagerness to learn, talent, and enthusiasm are more important than ticking the boxes though. Even if not all desired requirements are met, but you're very excited about the role, we want to hear from you.

What can you expect from us?

  • Unlock your full potential and create social impact at scale. Day-to-day, we work with local government leaders across the world to help them connect with their communities.
  • Become a key factor in our rapid transition from a startup to a scaleup (50 employees), and our international expansion.
  • Work and learn in a fast-paced, collaborative, and supportive environment. We share a participatory culture of autonomy and ownership by everyone, not only by leadership.
  • Be part of our dynamic, international team. We are as serious about our work in digital democracy as we are about having fun on our journey together.
  • Enjoy an informal work vibe with open communication and full transparency on results.
  • Participate in our various hybrid (in-person/remote) team events, inspiring team lunches, our company book club, bi-quarterly strategic town halls, and yearly global team retreats.
