Working Student- Marketing

Intern / Student, Full or part-time · NRW

The Basics

We are continuously experiencing strong customer growth and are looking for a motivated, organised, and fun Working Student to be a part of and assist our 100% remote marketing team.

If you’re looking for an opportunity to work for an innovative, people-first tech company, this might be the perfect role for you. We prize the right attitude over the right experience, and so we’re looking for you if you’re excited to learn and grow in a support role that you can shape and own as you develop your skills and confidence. We’re in the best position to teach you how to use GitHub, Slack, Miro, Hubspot, and Contently, amongst other fantastic skills that will serve you well throughout your career. 

If you’re reliable, love a to-do list, and get all jazzed up over getting organized, we offer a supportive environment where you can gather resume-building expertise in a tech company. 

Why we think this job is worth applying to

If you’re looking for an opportunity to work for an innovative, people-first tech company, this might be the perfect role for you.

  • We are growing currently 40% per year and are highly profitable

  • Our customers are extremely happy with us and would recommend us anytime. - Join our monthly virtual customer evenings where everyone comes together and shares their experiences - and people often stay until after midnight. 12 or 1 at night. 

  • We offer you career development and the chance to dive into everything you might be interested in. By the way, a lot of our working students are now working full time with us.

  • You get the chance to be part of an international remote tech company and have the flexibility to work wherever and whenever you want 

Your Job

In addition to that:

  • You will become a Hubspot CRM pro where you will be fully trained on launching a range of high-impact campaigns using landing pages, HubSpot forms, and A/B testing.

  • You will help manage marketing automation efforts and processes, proactively researching and implementing the latest best practices, strategies, and industry standards

  • You will have the opportunity to assist in the logistics of high-impact conferences and events in Europe and the United States.

  • You will also be our point-person for direct communication to vendors for helping to organise our virtual events.

  • You like to get things done and ticking off to-do lists makes you happy. 

  • You’re very good at self-organisation and the option of working in a multinational/multicultural team excites you

  • You’re happy to work from our office in Cologne (Startplatz - Im Mediapark) but have the option of working on certain tasks from home.

  • You get a MacBook Pro that you can also use in your free-time

About us

Every new team member changes the team. We love to learn from each other and we are looking for people who know things we don’t. 

  • Becoming part of Giant Swarm means that, by extension, you also become part of the Cloud Native community. We actively contribute to upstream projects and our quarterly hackathons will give you space to work on out-of-the-box projects. Occasionally, when we, as a team, want to fully focus on one project, we scratch all meetings and routines for a certain time to better focus during our hive-sprints.

  • Continuous learning is important to us - we foster this through bi-yearly personal development talks, a budget for training/certifications/coaching as well as regular feedback talks and workshops. Our teams are cross- functional and collaboration is key. 

  • Nothing crazy, but useful Basics: We don't count holidays but set a minimum number; You choose your own hard- and software; As a company that has almost, if not more, kids than employees, family-friendliness is crucial to us and paid parental leave is a no-brainer; We pay monthly perks that cover your costs for working remotely; We meet twice a year as an entire company and (if possible) see conferences as an important place to catch up with team members; We aim to be fully transparent (finance, salaries) unless it hurts people and trust you, based on this to make the best decisions

We failed in exactly describing our way to approach important company elements that can be described with ‘buzzwords’ such as agile mindset, cross-functional teams, self-organization, value of the individual or trust & teamwork. However, we truly care about them, we live them and we constantly iterate on them. Some snippets about how we do this are posted in our blog but by far not all of them. 

Important note: We are not hiring job descriptions. We hire humans. :) We welcome applications from everybody, regardless ethnic or national origin, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation or age.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
