  • Identify and facilitate solutions to challenges, and provide support for onboarding, trainings, workshops, brainstorming sessions, documentation, communication, etc.
  • Manage client stakeholders with administrative processes like procurement, invoicing, etc.

What we're looking for:

  • Proven project management skills including project scoping and planning, and setting the direction for a project team
  • That you can play an active role in business development with both new and existing clients
  • A track record of delivering design projects within, for example, digital, UX and service design
  • Experience with various project management tools
  • At least five years’ experience from a similar, highly collaborative and adaptive environment where projects and challenges come in all shapes and sizes
  • A positive approach and readiness to always help your colleagues
  • Excellent English communication skills – both verbally and written.


  • A cool work environment in Cologne or Frankfurt
  • A truly international work environment with the opportunity to work across teams and cultures
  • Work from home flexibility

  • Health benefits program: Choose from a wide variety i.e. fitness club, cook at home box etc.
  • Continual learning and development opportunities
  • More benefits we’re eager to share with you in person
