Junior Product Manager

Netherlands, Noord-Brabant, Eindhoven€2,200 - €2,600 per monthCategory & Product Management

Job description

Do you want to gain more experience in relationship management with brands and suppliers? And would you like to do this within the gaming and e-commerce industry? Then we have a great opportunity for you!

Your job

As a Junior Product Manager you support the Category Team and are responsible for maintaining and improving our relationships with brands within the digital entertainment industry. Together with our Product Managers, you ensure that both existing and new partners enjoy working with us.

You get to know the goals and issues of our partners and you know how to convince them to invest in campaigns or promotions with Startselect. Think of obtaining exclusive product and price promotions, but also setting up shared (marketing) plans. You collaborate with the marketing team to ensure a proper execution of the agreements made.

In summary, you keep yourself busy with the following:

  • You act internally as an extension of our partners and guarantee their brand and house style rules. After a while you know everything about the brands and their products and you share relevant information with the right colleagues
  • You are involved in preparing campaigns and promotions and request product-related images and texts from our partners
  • You check the presentation of our products and promotions: is the price right? Does the coupon work? Is the Instagram post live?
  • You analyze both our assortment and the product life cycle and help with the creation of new products in our system
  • You help build a planning and streamlined process from the (MDF) agreement with a partner and monitoring the quality of the execution, to receiving the agreed amount.

You will become part of the Category team, where you will strengthen our current Product Managers. You start with supporting activities, but there is a lot of opportunity for growth. In time you will focus more on relationship management and you will be responsible for your own partner portfolio.

Why work at Startselect?

Why should I apply?

Good question! Many colleagues once chose to apply with us because of the industry we're in. The gaming and entertainment industry and therefore our products and services appeal to many people. Another deciding factor is the challenge that awaits them. Your bed is not already made, there is a lot that can still be built up or improved. This triggers people who love pioneering and who can create something beautiful from their specialism. Often, the vacancy, our ambitions and the growth potential of our company fit in well with the wishes and ambitions someone has for his/her next career step.

What makes Startselect unique?

We are more down-to-earth than a trendy start-up, but more relaxed than a tight corporate. With about 50 employees, we are still a relatively small company that is always developing, while the turnover and scope of our business is large.

What's the best thing about working at Startselect?

Helping to build and make an impact. The feeling that you can really contribute to the growth and success of the company. Achieving or creating something that wasn't even there yesterday, keep developing and in the meantime working towards an ambitious company goal together.

What our employees value most is the freedom and flexibility they are given. You get the freedom to develop and implement your own ideas and projects. You decide how you do your work and how you organise it, as long as the end result is good and goals are achieved. And, of course, the great colleagues, pleasant and informal working atmosphere and the team spirit within our teams!

When might working at Startselect not really suit me?

Working at Startselect is not for everyone and that is okay. There are many reasons to start with us, but just as many reasons not to.

You will probably not be happy with us if you have a strong need for structure, rules and stability. If you like to do things 'because that is how we've always done them'. If you don't feel comfortable with the fact that the future of the company is also in your hands. If you work best within a strong hierarchy or like to come to work dressed in a suit. If you prefer to start the first year quietly, with not too much responsibility or big projects. If you find it difficult to show initiative and make things open for discussion. If you actually like the fact that your project and improvement plan first has to pass through three management layers before you can get to work. And if you don't like it that your contribution and work are noticed.
