Job description

Growth Tribe Is…

Growth Tribe launched 2 years ago with the vision to empower humans to rapidly gain skills in a fast changing world.

In 2 years time we’ve grown from a team of 3 to a team of over 45 people.

We're Europe's first Growth Academy backed by Facebook, the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and StartupAmsterdam. We’re a young rapidly growing source of growth education in Europe. We’re specialised in teaching digital growth skills (data-driven growth through experimentation, A.I. for non-coders) with hands-on and cutting-edge exercises. Our entire curriculum is built in-house with more than 2700+ people trained so far. And we’re just getting started.

What You'll Be Doing

  • Creating visual communication strategies for our products

  • Creating designs like icons and diagrams

  • Creating sales documents to support our sales team

  • Creating promotional assets for social media and our inbound channels

  • Helping with UX and UI on the website
  • Ensuring consistency of the visual identity as we grow internationally
  • Creating assets for retargeting ads (we love these)

  • Creating educational content like cheat sheets and resource directories

  • Visual storytelling

  • Creating concepts for Growth Tribe swag and merchandise

  • Creating responsive landing pages

  • Creating onboarding flows

  • Helping with design for video animations

  • A bunch more stuff we can't think of yet!

What Makes You Special 

  • Strong conceptual thinker

  • You love translating complex theories into accessible visuals

  • You care about the details, but you know how to keep up the pace.

  • Your English is great

  • You’re fluent in Photoshop, Illustrator, Landing page builders like Instapage and the whole Google suite

  • You're able to bring your work alive in motion design or interactive prototypes (nice to have)

  • You breathe digital, tech, and design

  • You’re always on the lookout for the latest trends in design

  • You have an understanding of UI / UX, wireframing and prototyping

  • You’re a self starter and bring lots of initiative to the table

  • You care about achieving a goal with your designs

  • You know how to convince or guide others to make decisions on design projects

  • You know how to manage a project from beginning to end 

Our Culture is What Makes Us Unique

Get Shit Done

No Excuses: We execute faster than anyone else. Be resourceful with speed. Mistakes may hurt us temporarily but being slow will kills us.

Data Levels All Arguments

Come to conversations and meetings with data (qualitative or quantitative). Our decisions will be sharper and our meetings shorter.

Always be Learning, Always be Teaching

 We are lifelong learners. We are a secret society and we make each other stronger within the Tribe. The world changes every week, learn and teach others.

It’s OK to Fail

 We value risk-taking. Mistakes are totally fine when you run experiments. We’re here to experiment.

Minimum Delightful Experiments 

Ship fast and break things... but also watch out for customer delight and the Growth Tribe brand.

Innovate or Die & Always Be Paranoid

 We never let ourselves forget: What got us here won’t get us there. Always optimise and innovate.

We’re a Secret Society

 Don’t share secrets and stories outside the Tribe.

No Aggravation. No Bullshit.

 1% of drama creates 99% of aggravation.

Have Empathy & Help Out

 For customers and for teammates. We’re all human: “Did they eat? Are they sleepy? Is it a bad day?” And No-one is too good god for any task.

And please...

Don’t eat Bananas with Eye Contact! It’s really awkward...

We Help Companies of All Sizes Grow, Fast.

Special Mentions

“Now that I’m writing this blog post, a couple of days after the course, there’s only one way to describe my experience: ‘WOW’. I’ve never attended such an interesting course in my life!“

Ronald Voorn

Ex CMO Heineken & Teacher at University of Twente

"While I had my permanent job in Rome, I did the only "rational" thing. I packed my bags, and moved to Amsterdam to join the Growth Tribe Academy. Everything you thought you knew about marketing is obsolete. Believe me... life begins at the edge of your comfort zone. Let the Tribe growth hack your life!

PS: Where am I now? Happily growth hacking for Catawiki, Europe's fastest growing startup!"
