So, what exactly will you do?
The Graypants amsterdam office is part of mother company VANMOKUM, so you will have the opportunity to work for not one, but several other brands (LEFF amsterdam, Karven, Droog and Frama) that each have their own story to tell. You’ll be helping to get these stories across in the best way possible, both visually and in text.
When joining our marketing team you'll be working on our products’ personalities and strategies on an international level. With the opportunity to make your ideas come true and work on dynamic and innovative projects, you'll be able to have a true impact on our brands. In this job you get real responsibilities that support your personal and professional development, while getting a good insight into the organization. To conclude: if you are ambitious, keen to learn and can't wait to get started…then you’ve come to the right place.
Some specific examples, you ask? Well, you can think of setting up newsletters, creating social media posts, organizing events, creating folders and flyers for these events… We can go on, but we’re curious what marketing means for you! Perhaps you have some interesting ideas - your own creativity is much appreciated.
Period: beginning of September 2018 till February 2019. (other periods can be discussed)
Okay, and who are you?
A huge plus about being our intern is that you’ll work for several brands, not just one, so it’s a great learning process… but it can also be a bit hectic. Each brand has their own visual style and tone of voice, and you’ll be learning all of them - which can get confusing. Therefore, some organisational skills should come in useful, where you know how to follow-up on tasks and can give accurate updates where a certain project stands.
You’re also somebody that understands marketing strategies and knows how to implement them in your operational work and tasks, where you have an eagerness to learn all the ins and outs about our brands. Besides, you’re tech-savvy and if something can be done more effective - you know how (or like to find out how)! Working in a team is something you love, since we enjoy brainstorming together. Nevertheless, you know how to work independently and self-sufficient in which you’re dedicated to your projects, a fast learner and taking initiative.
Sounds like a real job, doesn’t it? Don’t worry, there is definitely room to make mistakes. At the end of the day this is the only way to learn! During this period, we are right beside you for good guidance.
Now, enough about you, let’s talk about us!
If we haven’t convinced you by now this job is perfect for you, get ready for what we have to offer!
Besides the misleading name (we’ll tell you more about that when we meet), Graypants is not a clothing-company. We consider ourselves a team of problem solvers, led by our designers and founders Seth Grizzle and Jonathan Junker. Anchored in Seattle and Amsterdam, Graypants’ bold creativity leads to diverse designs in products, lighting, custom installations, architecture and other beautiful objects around the world.
Our work expands globally with products and custom designs for leading companies (have you heard of a company AirBnB?) worldwide. Our Amsterdam office has mostly been involved in the production, marketing and sales of our product range, whereas the Seattle office has mostly been involved in customized installations and launching our integrated ceiling system.
From our studio in Amsterdam we design, develop and admire beautiful and unique products. Besides Graypants you'll be working for LEFF amsterdam, Droog, Frama, Karven, and the latest asset: Soundskins. Every brand represents a different style and has their own story – one that you’ll be telling!
Okay last but not least... the practical stuff:
You’ll be getting a temporary contract for 40 hours a week and the intention is to hire you permanently.
You’ll be getting a contract for 40 hours a week for 5 months (Part-time hours are possible as well).
A good financial compensation
Good guidance during your internship
Parties - we have our own party venue. Yes, you read that right. We call it ‘the kluis’ (it’s in the basement of our building) and it's an awesome area where we celebrate every occasion possible.
A - very - nice discount on your new interior and watch collection.
