What's the job?

We are looking for a Digital Marketer to play a key role in developing, executing and growing our search engine marketing strategy & social advertising strategy.

You will be responsible for creating, launching and optimizing all paid campaigns we run to create more brand awareness and generate more leads in the United Kingdom, United States and the Benelux. Not only our Search, Display and Retargeting campaigns in Google’s network, but also engagement campaigns on the social channels LinkedIn and Twitter.

Besides, you will be responsible for all SEO activities: on-page optimizations (like improving the website structure, advising in optimizing the technique, and optimizing and writing English and Dutch content) and off-page optimizations (like improving external brand awareness and trust by PR activities and review gathering). Your goal will be to create bigger and broader visibility in search engines (we are mainly focusing on Google of course). Getting good rankings at keywords our potential customers are using will have your close eye continuously.

You will be part of the Marketing team where you mainly closely work with the Content Marketer and Visual Designer. But you will also work closely with the Sales and Product Teams to understand closely what our potential customers need. Do you accept this challenge 💪🏻?

A bit about us

Open Social empowers people by providing an open-source platform to build online communities of like-minded individuals. Replacing traditional intranets, Open Social fuels bottom-up innovation within organizations.

Early versions of our offering have won the prestigious Dutch Interactive Awards. The project, Greenpeace Greenwire, helps more than 100 000 Greenpeace volunteers bring positive change to the world around the globe. In The Netherlands alone, the software increased volunteering by 600%.

We offer our software in different versions: a free open-source distribution, a fully maintained software-as-a-service, and an enterprise edition. It's built with the platform Drupal, a web technology for creating ambitious digital experiences and has more than a hundred thousand active contributors worldwide. With ambitious new plans in our product roadmap, we aim to decouple our software’s front-end and back-end and create a more customizable and flexible headless platform.

The project is developed by a team of 25 people in The Netherlands and remote across Europe. Our office is based on the old market square in the middle of Enschede.
