The Dutch company has put online four different job offers for the upcoming German branch. It’s currently looking for a SEA marketeer, online content editor, online merchandiser and SEO marketeer. All of these jobs are stationed at the company’s headquarters in Amsterdam.
Ecommerce team is fastest-growing department
In the job offer, De Bijenkorf explains how its ecommerce team is the youngest and fastest-growing department within the company. “A team of 120 digital natives work together on the further growth and professionalization of our digital services”, it says.
In 2009, the company relaunched its online store and since then it became one of the biggest online stores in the Netherlands. In September of 2014, the department store started with the delivery of goods to consumers living in Belgium. And now, the online shop will expand to Germany.
For now, DeBijenkorf.de redirects immediately to the Dutch version of the ecommerce website. But it might be a sign that the company will be using its Dutch name on the German market.
