Production/content design(2/3 days a week | Dutch speaking)

Proudies is a young Amsterdam-based Agetech start-up, on a mission to become world's most inspirational platform for seniors; to build a place where older people can come to find, meet, and discover their new chapter in society and life.

Key activities:

Writing & designing

Plan and execute on the content strategy. Produce high-quality articles and e-learning videos.

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 werkstudent production/content design who will take the lead on writing articles on actualities (including topics of our weekly readings), directing new (video) content, building and orchestrating podcasts and more..

In this role, you will shape our digital content strategy (copy) and podcast production. Together with Hidde and Lenny, you will closely look at which kinds of new courses, articles, readings, and podcasts will shape the Proudies platform. Additionally, you will work closely with marketing to get direct feedback on what our members love the most. Writing scripts for our podcasts and learning modules will be at the forefront of your week. Other core activities will include writing articles on actualities and connecting with our partners for content collaboration. At the same time, you will be involved in designing and shaping our content strategy.

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: brainstorming on new content topics, chatting with colleagues and partners, working together with the marketing team to design content campaigns, preparing podcasts, preparing & directing e-learning video's with our experts, 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!

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!
