Website Standing on Giants

We are an exciting young company based in London Paddington with unprecedented expertise in Online Community Management. Our founders have won several awards for their outstanding work in this field and we continue to strive to impact the relationship between brands and their customers. We are offering an opportunity to work for one of the most sought after companies in the Online Community space and gain experience in our groundbreaking community management methodology.

We are currently managing communities for some of the world’s leading brands including Airbnb and O2. We are rapidly expanding our client base, focusing on collaborating with disruptive start-ups in a range of industries — and this is where you come in; we are looking for a German Speaking Community Manager who wants to join our awesome team and work together to build a community for an innovative energy company, where the community will be at the heart of the operations and your work will impact the whole business. We can’t say much more right now, but will at the time of the interview.

You will be hard-working and quick to learn. An interest in people, communities and how they work with brands, both on- and offline  will be essential. Highly self-motivated – you’re the kind of person who’s always striving to do better. If you have an open, honest and collaborative approach to your job, you’ll fit right in. Ideally you will have German as a first language and a strong command of English will really set you apart (or vice-versa).

In return we will spend time training you in our award winning community management methodology. We are offering a competitive starting salary, perk pot, pension and unlimited holidays. Plus, you can expect support, recognition and the chance to progress with us.

This is an incredible opportunity for someone with some record in the Online Community Management field who is ready to take on their next challenge.
