Marketing /

Who are we? 

Born and raised in Berlin, we are Honeypot, Europe's developer-focused job platform. Launched in 2015 and acquired by NWSE in 2019, we are a fast growing scaleup with big ambitions.

In the past year, on our mission to build the world's largest work-life community for technical people, we created honeypot.originals (some say 'Netflix for developers') and launched our developer-focused media platform .cult, exploring the softer side of software development. 

We are now looking for a result-oriented VP of Marketing and Community who has the ambition to grow our community, develop our B2B marketing and lead a diverse team of creative people.

What do we believe? 

We believe in contributing to the community and adding to the world we want to be a part of. 

We believe in storytelling. We’re driven by an unwavering passion for engaging content and a long-lasting dislike for clickbaity fluff. 

We believe in developers. We want to shed a different kind of light on software development by humanizing developers, inspiring wannabe techies, and turn our contributors into movie stars, respected authors and speakers in the process.

What do we need help with?

We are looking for a strong community marketing leader with creative chops, vision, result-oriented and shows huge love and respect for developer communities.
