We are looking for a skilled social media specialist to bring the strategy and vision needed to take our social media presence to the next level. As a marketing and communications team, we are responsible for several brands including Devhouse Spindle, Voys, VoIPGRID, and 48percent.org. As a member of the team, your job will be creating and executing a cohesive social media strategy for all our brands. You will work side by side with other marketing experts to create captivating stories about our purpose, products, and culture and post them online. Some of our brands communicate in Dutch, while others communicate in English, so you need to be comfortable working in both languages.
Our ideal colleague is structured and innovative. You believe that business social media involves more than just sending out messages, and enjoy interacting with your audience(s). The purpose of every brand is something you always take into account when finding the right positioning and messaging that attracts our target audiences. You are continuously looking for possible improvements in our online presence and share your ideas with a contagious enthusiasm. You aren’t afraid to try something and experiment, but you are also methodical and keep track of experiments to know what works best for each brand. You know what are the relevant channels for your message and know exactly how to make the most out of each social media platform. It’s a bonus if you have experience writing about software and have worked with B2B marketing (SME + freelancers).
Have previous experience running social media channels as well as setting up and executing strategies and campaigns
Bonus points if you:
If you know other languages, especially German
Devhouse Spindle and Voys are growing and ever-changing organizations on a mission to connect the world using open and free communication. At Spindle, we develop the tools that make this possible such as VoIPGRID our award winning telefony platform. Alongside that we develop an app (both Android and iOS versions), a webphone, and a browser extension which allow you to use the VoIP platform wherever you are. Voys is our sister company and sells VoIPGRID under the brand name Freedom.
Next to the tools we develop and sell, we also connect people through the foundation, 48percent.org and the open source community, the Open VoIP Alliance. Our companies are located in Groningen, a beautiful city known for its innovation and the second fastest growing tech city in the Netherlands.
If you look around the office, you’ll notice we do things a bit different around here:
We organize ourselves using a system called Holacracy. We believe every colleague is able to contribute to the organization rather than relying on a traditional hierarchy. Having no managers comes with extra responsibility to take ownership of your work and set priorities that help to further the organization.
We work with a “build, measure, learn” mentality and open mindset. We recognize that not everything you do is going to work right away. We praise experimentation and reward trying something new, even if the lesson is to not try it again.
We have an open and transparent salary system. Every colleague is placed in the pathway and a level best fitting their education, experience, and visible behavior. We encourage growth and have clear guidelines and expectations for doing so.
We are a diverse and inclusive team of international coworkers. We value the differences that each person brings to the table and think that it's those differences that strengthen our organization.
A relaxed and welcoming culture with celebrations, events, and trips
