The sector

The agetech sector has been chronically overlooked by many, even though this sector in particular is a big, growing, and important section of the market. It’s time to do better and create products specifically designed for this fantastic demographic. With our team, we have started a movement to go from ‘boredom and dissatisfaction’ to an ‘inspiring and joyful’ retirement.

What role are we looking for?

We are looking for a community manager (werkstudent) who will assist Pauline (our founder) in managing and activating our enthusiastic community.
In this role, you will form the first point of contact of Proudies as an organisation. Additionally, you will be actively involved in setting up a community management plan to engage with our different communities. At the same time, you will play a vital role in extracting feedback from our users through chatting and calling. 

What your day might look like

Every morning, we will start with a short kick-off at 0900 at our offices the Edge Olympic in Amsterdam zuid.
Every day will be different and might include: calling with users, chatting with customers or partners, working together with the marketing team to design email campaigns, setting up (offline) events for the community, engaging with people on the platform and other tasks that might appear during the day!

What we ask

We would like to emphasise that we encourage everyone with an interest in working at Proudies to pick up the phone (or email ;-) ) and contact us! Even if your profile might not match all our criteria, that’s okay, commitment and enthusiasm go a long way!

Pauline de Bruijn

Founder
Hi! I'm Pauline. 7 months ago I founded Proudies to help seniors find a happy and purposeful position in our society. Before that, I have worked at larger and smaller corporates companies, but I've found myself enjoying the smaller teams way more! I'm in charge of all the product, fundraising and love doing the sales, but I also use a large part of my day finetuning tasks at hand, just like the rest of the team!

I'm Hidde, with a background in startups and VC I've gained deep knowledge on go-to-market strategies, financing, funding and business development. I met Pauline 6 months ago and joined forces recently to help her gain the exponential growth that Proudies deserves!
