  • Zwaanstraat, 5651 Eindhoven, Netherlands
  • Full-time

Company Description

WAES stands for We Are Engineering Solutions. Founded only 3 years ago, with a mission to connect with global Software talent to work on the most innovative projects in the Netherlands. Our current business model is secondment of experienced Software professionals. However, we want to broaden our business model, and become an awesome Software company.

“We love to push technology further to change peoples’ lives for the better.”

Right now, we are scaling up rapidly! In addition to the above-mentioned business model of secondment, we will add running software projects for clients, and software development for own future products, to the WAES-portfolio in the upcoming months. We will open our Amsterdam office in Q1 of 2019. These large ambitions come with large growth! We are planning to quadruple in size from 50 today to over 200 in 2020.

Job Description

The adventure

As a Marketing Manager, you show to the world (literally!) how awesome we are. You will translate the already remarkable WAES-story into a marketing strategy that matches the bold ambitions of the company, and our culture. A culture in which we challenge, explore, learn and continuously innovate.

You are definitely not only a strategist. You are the marketing team yourself, so you are responsible for the execution as well. Think Online (SEO/SEA, Social media, content, ...) and Offline (print, events, ...). You make it happen.


Meet the team

You will work closely together with Bob, our 31-year-old CEO and founder of WAES. He is to the point & creative, and likes to punch the boxing ball in our office.

You’ll also work with Stijn, our 33-year-old cross-fit fanatic that’s heading our Sales team and is responsible for ensuring that we have enough awesome projects for our consultants to work on.  His main challenge is to get around the table with prospects in a very competitive market; that’s why we need your creativity!

Then we have Hayke, our 37-year-old Head of Recruitment. Hayke is also a cross-fit fanatic and has the mission to ensure WAES of the best tech talent we can get our hands around on, ensuring we grow to become probably the coolest Software company in the Netherlands by 2020. This is also challenging, because great Software talent is scarce and highly in demand, globally!


Why you will survive

We are thought leaders. Game changers.  And so are you! You surprise us with bold ideas that match with who we are. Get creative, be street smart and collaborate with Sales and Recruitment to build awesome campaigns that no-one has ever seen before!

To be successful, you need experience in a start-up / scale-up like environment. You understand Digital, eCommerce, online. You know how to build a brand identity and how to position a brand into the market.

What we offer

A unique opportunity to set your personal mark on the scale-up phase of WAES! You will have (more or less) a greenfield to set a remarkable marketing practice, in a very international context! All of this surrounded with driven, entrepreneurial colleagues who want to jump in when you need it.  You will work in our office in the Innovation Powerhouse. An urban jungle in Eindhovens' hotspot Strijp-T, formerly in use as a power plant and now home base of a bunch of high-tech innovation companies.

Personal growth is important to us. We make this real with a generous personal development budget and a culture where we expect you to experiment, endeavour new solutions, fail, and learn from it!

We aim high, so the right amount of unwinding is important to us as well! Join our amazing everyday lunch, join our Friday beer, and challenge your colleagues in our pinball tournament! ;-)
