    • Fluent English speaker (written and spoken). You’re able to eloquently explain the benefits of attending our events in emails, across social platforms and on the phone, without breaking a sweat. You're confident with speaking with senior level executives
    • Experience with our current technology stack is a plus: Spark, Google Apps, Slack, Hubspot and Notion
    • A good balance between a team player/self-starter
    • Looking to work 3 days a week or on a project basis

    Our offer

    • An inspiring and hilarious network of colleagues from TNW
    • Flexible working hours and a relaxed, informal work atmosphere at a growing company
    • An online subscription to the Financial Times
    • Open vacation policy and pension plan
