Communications & Content Strategist (m/f/d)

DUMBO is a small digital studio based in Cologne, Germany, passionate about building products and services that users love. Even though we are a small team, our clients are big brands, global companies and industry leaders. Our work is put into interfaces that are used by millions every single day to get their jobs done. We love what we do and are excited about instilling positive change to the product design industry.

We have big plans, and that's why we need you!

We're looking for someone to kickoff and lead our communications and content team. We want to build an engaged community, start interesting conversations, organise exciting events and ultimately add a ton of value to our industry.

What you'll do:

  • Come up with ideas and strategies that will help us reach the right people at the right time. You’ll make sure that the DUMBO channels are always packed with goodies that create value, start conversations and build a sense of community.
  • Plan and organise our social campaigns. You'll develop the editorial outline of our social media calendar.
  • You'll always be thinking ahead, following industry trends and coming up with new topics and ideas for the content plan.
  • You'll take our most valuable pieces of content and find new ways to share them that are snackable and engaging.
  • You'll coordinate all the hands involved, in-house and external, to get our content executed. You handle everything it takes to get our posts live.
  • You'll be the manager of all of our social accounts, sometimes even jumping on them to share what's going on in our office and with our team.

What you'll bring:

  • A deep understanding of social media. You keep up with trends, you spend time on social media platforms and you know the best practices.
  • Strong copywriting skills. You know how create a hook and write compelling captions in English and in German.
  • You are comfortable taking the lead, bringing ideas to the table, and spearheading our public facing content efforts.
  • You're not afraid of the camera. Sometimes we might need you in a video or an instagram story!
  • You like to bring people together, whether they are our clients or people in our community. You are able to plan and host meaningful gatherings (remotely or in-person) that people are excited to be a part of.

What you get:

  • A strong team. You don't work with any idiots. We don't hire them and we don't work for them. That's a promise!
  • A creative place to live out your dreams. You'll work in our modern office, which we're constantly expanding into a place where we can live healthy lives and express ourselves creatively.
  • Flexible working hours. We value the fact that your work is a happy part of your life. We provide you and your family the flexibility you need.
  • Our all-in. Our employment contract is intended to be a long-term partnership with you. No time limits. No one-night stands.
  • Flat hierarchies. Whether you're fresh out of college or director-level, you'll always collaboratewith the rest of the Dumbo team and our partners.
  • Your bike is paid for. DUMBO values having a low carbon footprint, so we pay for your bike so you can get to and from the office in the most environmentally friendly way possible!
  • Annual Team Trips. Last year the whole team traveled to Croatia for a week to work on a passion project, the year before it was Austin Texas!
  • Career Development. DUMBO is constantly evolving and it's important that our employees do too! We provide you with the opportunity to focus on developing your professional and personal skills. More importantly, we'll collaborate with you to find a way to put those skills to use at DUMBO.

Sounds good? We're so excited to hear from you!

We can't wait to meet you soon!

The DUMBO team.
