A dream job for an all-round communication professional with experience in the venture/startup world!

Do you have a strong pen, a passion for communication and good organizational skills and would you like to use your talents to create impact? This might be your job!

Who are we?

Rubio Impact Ventures is a leading impact venture fund based in the Netherlands with € 150 million AUM. Rubio invests in world-changing entrepreneurs who unite powerful positive impact with a scalable commercial business. Rubio offers its investments a winning blend of capital, expertise and network access to help them accelerate to the next level. Rubio has a diverse team of 15 impact driven entrepreneurial professionals, based in the heart of Amsterdam (@Artis). 

Who are we looking for?

You are an experienced communication professional who will give Rubio, its mission and our portfolio companies maximum exposure. We would look to you to help us raise bar on:

+ Rubio’s unique approach and value proposition to prospective entrepreneurs

+ Rubio’s impact investment strategy to existing and prospective fund investors

+ Rubio’s portfolio companies’ products and success to their potential markets

+ Rubio’s founders’ learnings & best practices to their peers within our portfolio

+ Rubio’s commitment to impact across the entire ecosystem

The above means you manage a mix of communication channels ranging from writing and managing online channels and social media to setting up special communication productions and organizing events. You build our brand, create great content, and help amplify our voice and that of our portfolio companies.  You are the key figure in the organization when it comes to external communication.

Experience in the venture /startup scene

Moreover, you know the field we work in, which means you have experience in the venture /startup scene and understand what kind of communication is successful for which audience and can adjust tools and channels accordingly. You are keen on PR opportunities and select the right events for the Rubio team to attend and speak at. You have the freedom to experiment and develop new things, anything that supports our overall strategy. You work solo (or with an intern) but for special publications, or events you work together with freelance professionals who you contract/coordinate. 

You are an enthusiastic hands- on person who enjoys diversity in your work. You have a creative mind, an entrepreneurial spirit and a CanDo mentality. You are a storyteller with a good pen. You are a self- starter who thrives in an unstructured environment.  You are hands on, you know how to do the actual work, you love to write and are adept in mailchimp and communication tool kits. Rubio communication is in English (and occasionally Dutch). Your ability to speak and write in both languages is excellent.

To apply for this job we would like you to have : 

– 5+ years experience in the field of communication and marketing

– Very strong content creator and storyteller

– Experience in the venture /start-up/scale-up world

– Minimum HBO education or bachelor

– Affinity with the organization’s impact drive and mission

– Experience in the impact investing world is a big plus

We are supportive of remote and self-directed work. That being said, we are a small close-knit team and would love to have you work the majority of your time from our wonderful office with the @Artis park as our backyard. We look for minimum 3 days per week, to max full time (depending on your seniority).

If this description sounds like you, please apply via the link, and you will be redirected to the landing page of Diepeveen & partners, to whom we have outsourced the pre-selection. If you are pre-selected, you will get an interview with the partners of Rubio: Willemijn Verloop and Ilonka Jankovich. A writing assignment at the Rubio offices and an interview with partner Warner Philips is part of the final step.
