  • You love what you do and embody this passion every day anew! You infect others with your enthusiasm and make it easy for them to share your passion.
  • You are fluent in platforms such as XING, LinkedIn, and social media while curious and eager to experiment. No channel is unknown to you for long!
  • You think strategically and take all departments into account while always striving to develop yourself and your area of responsibility.
  • The most important thing: you have a positive view of people, you like people, you recognize their needs and find a way to utilize their talents and strengths.
  • Since we are also active on an international level, your English language skills should be good enough to conduct interviews in English without any problems.


  • Plenty of space for your own ideas and personal development opportunities
  • Well-known customer network with global top brands
  • New channels and premium BTL marketing in Germany’s top-selling agency for Live-Communication
