Who You Are:

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Motivated with the ability to work independently and effectively manage workload
  • Curious and yearning for hands-on experience in marketing, communications and community management
  • Creative and brimming with innovative ideas – the crazier the better!

  • A good digital and social media culture
  • A keen eye for DIY, home improvement or gardening is a bonus
  • Native-level/fluency in English is mandatory

  • 50% of your commuting costs covered
  • France’s mythical restaurant tickets
  • A great atmosphere (average age of 28)
  • A games room with table football, ping pong and video games
  • A relaxation room
  • A do-it-yourself workshop
  • and many more surprises in store with our Chief Happiness Officer…
