Workplace Team Manager at Contentful
Berlin, DE

Contentful provides content infrastructure for digital teams to power websites, apps, and devices. Unlike a CMS, Contentful was built to integrate with the modern software stack. It offers a central hub for structured content, powerful management and delivery APIs, and a customizable web app that enables developers and content creators to ship their products faster. Companies including Spotify, Red Bull, WeWork, Lyft, and Urban Outfitters rely on Contentful to manage content as part of their modern web stack.

Contentful is growing rapidly, backed by $80 million in funding from VC firms including Benchmark and General Catalyst, and strategic investors including Sapphire Ventures (SAP) and Salesforce Ventures.

We’re a fun team of more than 200 people from 44 nations, with offices in Berlin and San Francisco. Join us!

Our office is a vibrant place filled with ambitious individuals interested in the tech and start-up scene and we constantly aim at providing them with an exceptional workplace experience.

As our Workplace Team Manager you will be responsible for our overall workplace strategy and the smooth running of day-to-day operations both in Berlin and San Francisco. You will be the leader of a small team as well as the main coordinator for several external parties such as architects, real estate agents or service providers. Furthermore, some exciting projects await as you will drive and shape the future of Contentful’s workplace! We have just signed a long-term office space that we will move into by end of 2020 and plan an all-company offsite for outside of Berlin; so plenty of time to join forces with architects, designers and project managers and create a brand-new collaborative work culture. This role is based in Berlin and is a full-time role.

  • Work closely with other teams on shared projects such as organizing our annual company offsite, facilitating team moves, or revamping internal processes and communication

  • You are outgoing, helpful and embrace the value of teamwork
  • You are a strong communicator, experienced leader and are not afraid to be hands-on when help in other areas is needed
  • You are fluent in English (English is our main company language) and have good working knowledge in German

BENEFITS

  • Sharpen your PlayStation, ping pong, and kicker/fußball skills during breaks in the day
  • As much artisan coffee as you can handle
  • Brush up your language skills! Our team speaks more than 20 languages, and we offer free German classes
  • Take a break and pat a pup, we are a dog-friendly office

We believe that our products and services benefit from our diverse backgrounds and experiences and are proud to be an equal opportunity employer: all qualified applicants are considered for positions regardless of race, ethnic origin, gender, age, religion or belief, marital status, gender identification, sexual orientation, or disability.
