German Digital Marketing Executive



Salary: Based on Experience
Location: Central London, UK
Date required: ASAP


Role Overview

As part of our expansion we are preparing to launch a German language website for customers across the region i.e. including Austria and Switzerland.


As the German Digital Marketing Executive you will be responsible for ensuring that the website content is kept up-to-date and that our online marketing activity is in-synch with local promotions, product merchandising and central marketing campaigns.


Whilst a lot of your time will be spent translating and localizing copy (we’ll test your understanding of the difference!), you’ll also be exposed to, and responsible for, driving the awareness of Green Man Gaming and getting customers to the website. As such, this is a unique and exciting opportunity to ‘own your online shop’. We want you to feel it’s yours, care for its customers and champion the experience they have with us. Our intention is also to train you to put together and send emails to your customers and to provide cover when email team members are away. A non-exhaustive list of responsibilities is included at the end of this document.


Reporting directly into the Head of Marketing, we’re going to support you by giving you access to talented specialists around the business. You’ll work with virtually every member of the Marketing team across paid search, display, SEO, email, social media, design and PR. Don’t worry if you don’t know what those things are because we’re going to give you the chance to learn about them! In addition, you’re going to get to know what a trading, development and operations teams do in an e-commerce company so by the end of your first year (or two) you’re going to be able to impress all your friends with the tech and marketing jargon that gets you a long way in today’s digital world.


Of course we want you to stay with us on our journey to success. On that note, the prospects for this role are numerous for a hungry, talented individual: you could find yourself managing others or you may want to go in to a specific area of Marketing or, any other area of our business for that matter. There are upwards and sideways opportunities that are yours for the taking should youearn them. Which brings us to what we’re looking for…


About You:

We are looking for a fluent German and English language speaker with an obsession for detail and a genuine desire to carve out a career in the exciting world of e-commerce.


Whilst many job descriptions call for passion and commitment, we really mean it: We want you to take ownership of this opportunity, to roll-your sleeves-up, be a learning machine and care about ‘your shop’ and ‘your customers’.


We don’t require direct experience but if you have any then it will obviously be a bonus. If you have any coding (HTML) experience then that will also be an advantage. And if you’re into games then that’s a massive plus.

What we do require are the following aptitudes, skills and personality traits:
  • Excellent translation and writing skills – we will test this during the recuitment process.
  • Highly organised with the ability to prioritise work and deliver to tight deadlines.
  • A genuine interest in eCommerce / digital / social media / marketing.
  • Ambition and drive – a willingness to do what it takes to achieve success.
  • A fast, adaptive learner and an inquisitive mind.
  • Great communicator and team player.
  • An outgoing and confident personality.
  • A relevant degree e.g. language, art, marketing, business.

Responsibilities include:

  • Working with partners including Design, publishers and agencies to translate and/or create engaging content to attract, convert and retain our customers.
  • Translation, build and broadcast of emails.
  • Writing content for Green Man Gaming events, pages, special promotions and award submissions.
  • Ensuring marketing campaigns and promotions are planned and delivered for German language speakers.
  • Coordinating reports for aforementioned marketing activity.
  • Championing the customer.
