Our big and simple goal

We are an international team with a bold vision: we want to revolutionize the mattress industry and be the leading provider of innovative, regenerative sleeping experiences.

What we stand for

Everything we do is centered around circular economy design principles. Transparency is core to our culture and embedded in our entire value chain. We celebrate our high-quality and sustainable approach. Innovation is in our DNA. We have fun and are not afraid to bring people around the table for hard discussions whilst pushing our vision forward.

Sounds interesting?

Here are the responsibilities we’ll trust you with as a Business Development and Marketing Intern:

    • Leading our sales outreach process. From compiling potential sales leads for cold outreach to calling and organizing face to face meetings for our sales team, all the way to joining sales meetings and being part of the partnership process.
    • Supporting marketing and social media projects including: content writing, website updates, social media campaigns and testing out digital marketing techniques such as online adverts and SEO.
    • Being the right-hand to our founders and being involved in strategic projects around our circular economy product development, partner acquisition and scaling approach.

Here are the skills and knowledge that matter most for this role:

    • You are in your final year of bachelor studies or are studying your masters degree, are based in Vienna and have a valid work permit for Austria.
    • You have prior sales experience, whether in project roles in your studies or through previous working experience.
    • You have digital marketing experience and/or know-how in the areas of social media campaigns, online advertising, SEO and website updating.
    • You are confident and resilient. That means you would be comfortable picking up the phone to a hotel to tell them about our mission and vision, presenting to a potential customer in person, or cold emailing a potential partner.
    • You are comfortable with leading your own projects and using your initiative. You don’t wait for solutions to appear for problems, you are proactive and solve them yourself.
    • You like to jump into cold water and learn by doing. You might not always know the answer but you are not afraid to try and fail, and repeat, until you succeed.
    • You are interested in the startup, circular economy and ClimateTech space, and are open to a flexible working approach where no two days will be the same.
    • You are fluent in German and English (both written and verbal) since we are an international team.

Here are your benefits for joining our dynamic team:

    • Flexibility and a 4-day week: you fit your hours around your schedule. 
    • Hybrid working style: we provide remote working options, as well as co-working space at our office location in Talent Garden, Vienna.
    • Freedom and fun: from day 1, you will dive into the startup experience and be given responsibilities that will enable you to learn and grow continuously.
    • Learning and personal growth: we will work with you to understand where you want to grow and learn, providing you with tailored learning opportunities through events and courses.
    • Future career: should you want to stay on our team, and if you impress us, then there is the possibility to join us full-time upon completion of your internship.
    • Salary: we strongly believe in paid internships. You can expect a minimum salary of 1.700 EUR gross €/Month for full time hours, depending on qualifications. Individual packages can be discussed.
    • We are also open to agreeing the hours of your part-time employment on an individual basis (anywhere between 15-30 hours/week).
