Who we are
Productpine is a fast-growing Amsterdam based start-up. We envision a world in which brands thrive instead of retailers. This world is better for our precious environment, for millions of consumers that are looking to improve their lives, and for thousands of brands that are so passionate about telling the stories behind their amazing products. To get there, we make direct-to-consumer sales 80% cheaper for brands, so brands can increasingly sell directly to customers without middlemen. We’re doing this by building a next-generation marketplace, empowered by advertising technology that allows brands to share advertising costs. We then help brands to invest their savings to improve our planet.
Our team.
Although our team is geographically distributed, our office is in the city center of Amsterdam, alongside the canals and next to lots of urban hotspots and great restaurants. It’s just a 15 min. walk from the central train station, and it is easily accessible by bike and public transport. For most of us, Productpine feels like a second home where you can just be (and develop) yourself to get the best out of yourself.
Our core values.
We’d love to get in touch with candidates that blend well in our young and tight-knit team. We expect you to be entrepreneurial by taking complete ownership over your tasks and role, while being proactive and curious. You are solution-orientated and communicate honestly, directly, and openly with others. Your resilience allows you to cope well with difficulties and changes, since you remain positive and future orientated. More importantly: you have a lot of passion about what you do, because you are optimistic and full of energy and ambition. Let’s push those boundaries together.
You’re willing to take action and do not sit still when something has to be done.
You choose to focus on solutions, rather than to be stuck with problems.
You take responsibility for your actions and have a deep desire to be genuine.
You remain positive, future-oriented and strong during challenging situations.
You believe in what you do and take satisfaction in exercising your discipline.
