  • Outstanding communication skills, both oral and written. 
  • Fluent in both Dutch and English.

Meet the team

We're an ambitious close-knit group of talented people, working hard to change the world of corporate communications. Besides the office we also spend a lot time together on boat trips, company retreats, festivals, and conferences.

We are a young company so a lot of the things we do are new, which means we learn a lot every day. Because we're a small team, you get a lot of responsibility and therefore have the freedom to work on what you think is right.

We work from the TQ office in the hart of Amsterdam, a beautiful place with a tight community of other ambitious companies. Relax at the ping pong or Foosball table, play a game of badminton or enjoy the view on the roof terrace overlooking the Munt. There's also plenty of free events being held, the awesome club area to work from, and drinks every Friday.
