You are an ideal candidate if you are a self-starter and are adept at collaborating with a variety of stakeholders to bring our brand and our message to life.

  • Besides crafting content for the German-speaking market, you will also help with the content in English for the global markets and business-oriented goals, with your word-craft getting international visibility and measurable results;
  • Shape how we talk about complex financial concepts and experiment and iterate until you get to a place that works;
  • Translate to German and also proofread, adapt and edit in German the content supplied by other team members in other languages (English) when needed;
  • Help adapt the tone and voice of the Mintos brand and champion it in all materials and elements meant for German-speaking communities and markets;
  • If needed, collaborate with German PR agencies to produce content and help craft written responses to media inquiries as needed;
  • Stay on top of industry trends.

What you need to know/have:

  • 3-5 years of writing experience as a copywriter, journalist, content marketing manager, or similar with German as a working language. Previous experience of writing copy for technology companies is a plus;
  • General knowledge of financial terms and ability to translate complex financial issues into simple, understandable prose that is relevant to our customer base;
  • Sharp, creative, conversion-focused mindset that exhibits curiosity to understand how your words can make a difference through conversion-rate-optimised (CRO) copy and A/B tests;
  • Proven track record of delivering clear, straightforward, and SEO/SEM friendly copy with a portfolio showing how the words you’ve written have made a positive impact;
  • Great communication and interpersonal skills to work effectively with everyone in the company in a fast-changing environment;
  • Strong organisational and time management skills as there will be a lot going on at one time;
  • Excellent writing skills in German and proficiency level in English is a must.
