We have BIG plans to take on Europe and recently launched our German review platform. We’re looking for part-time German speaking Social & Content lead to grow our community and review platform in the DACH region 🇩🇪 🇨🇭 🇧🇪 

You will need to be a super passionate self starter who is available to work part-time for around 20 hours a week. You will own the planning, design and delivery of content across our German website and social media channels.


What you will do 🙋

  • Create, write, design and schedule social media posts, stories, tweets, articles, podcasts, videos, newsletters, events – whatever we put on the internet in the DACH region. 
  • Build and maintain relationships with influencers and press contacts that can help spread the word about The Lowdown.
  • Work with our SEO lead to plan, write and commission content that helps us rank on the first page of Google for thousands of German keywords.
  • Work with our medical team and experts to ensure all of our content is clinical evidenced and balanced.
  • Monitor and track performance – you’ll tell us what’s working, what’s not, and build campaigns that align with our business objectives.


What we’re looking for 🔎

This is a really exciting opportunity to join an early-stage startup. 

  • You’re fluent in English and German and great at translating things between the two languages 🇬🇧  🇩🇪 
  • You write witty, to the point copy. You’ve got a really good sense of humour and know how to write a killer caption 🤣
  • You understand the science. You don’t have to have a science background, but that would help! 👩‍⚕️
  • You have a keen eye for design. You know how to create visually appealing content, and can design stuff yourself in whatever software works for you (Canva, Figma etc) 🎨
  • You’re brilliantly creative and have got loads of ideas for how to spread the word about us, and inform and educate women about their contraception and hormones 💡
  • You’re fascinated by all things women’s health, and love researching and talking about everything, from menstruation to menopause 🚺
  • You’ve got loads of initiative and will thrive in a fast-paced startup, where a lot can change and we need all hands on deck. You don’t need to know everything, but you have a fast rate of learning. 📈
  • Embrace testing and learning. You have an openness to totally new ideas and trying things in a different way. You’re constantly looking to learn and iterate, with a results-driven purpose. 🧪
  • You’re really passionate about The Lowdown – and love what we stand for! ❤️


What we offer 💰

  • Free rein. You’d be the first person on the team to lead social and content in the DACH region at The Lowdown. You run the show.
  • The chance to work in building a mission driven startup that is already helping thousands of people every day. Trust us when we say it’s rewarding!
  • Experienced Founder and some incredible tech startup investors who you can learn from.
