Midweight Copy & Content Guru

We’re looking for a hungry storytelling superhero who can help make us famous.

FULL-TIME · AMSTERDAM

We don’t want a writer who just makes things sound pretty. We’re looking for a young and hungry storytelling superhero who can think creatively, act strategically, write smartly, collaborate beautifully...and make us famous.

Key Responsibilities

Join forces with our communications designer to keep our owned channels humming
Every week we connect with our customers on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Medium and email. It’ll be on you and the designer to build monthly content plans, pitch them to the creative director, then roll your sleeves and execute them beautifully.

Make our voice stronger every day
Make the tiny daily tweaks that ensure that everything, from our search ads, to our pre-written customer responses, to our translations, to these job listings, to our support content, sound a little more VanMoof every day.

Be a story magpie
Constantly be on the lookout for great VanMoof stories that’ll make us famous, have a point of view about the best medium and place to tell them, push for budget and permission, then pick up a pen or a keyboard and storytell the hell out of them.

Help us become famous
You’ll be occasionally pulled in to collaborate with the rest of the creative team on big juicy product launches, campaigns events, and things so wild and wonderful we don’t even have a category to slot them into.

Requirements

First, the practical ones:

  • Kick-ass written and spoken English, Dutch as a bonus but not essential. 
  • 2 - 4 of writing, content, and storytelling experience. 
  • Familiarity with at least some of our digital tools - Google Analytics, MailChimp, SproutSocial, GatherContent, and our social media backends - so you can roll your sleeves up and get things live. 


Now, the touchy-feely ones:

We want someone who wants to change the world with us.

We want to make the world a better place with our bikes, and we don’t think traditional marketing will make that happen. No agencies. No million-dollar TV ads. No fat media budgets. We’re after someone who wants to make things that make us famous, get more people riding bikes, and change the world...and goes the extra mile to make it happen.

You’ll need to be as stubbornly focused as we are.
We do more with less here. But everything we do should be utterly on-brand, and it’ll be your job to make that happen.

And you'll need to be damn inventive.

If you think you can roll your sleeves up, and get your hands dirty in the making, building, problem-solving and growing we'll be doing in 2017, we'd love to talk to you.

Please make sure to upload your portfolio as part of your application. Applications close Friday 27th January, so be quick.
