Koalect is looking for a Customer Relationship Specialist
Koalect is a Belgian company that makes crowd engagement campaigns meaningful and successful. They are looking for a Customer Relationship Specialist.
NGO’s, cities, healthcare organisations, cooperatives, universities and many others use our digital toolbox to raise funds, engage with stakeholders and build stronger communities.
We work with more than 100 organisations in Belgium, including Vluchtelingenwerk Vlaanderen, GO! Onderwijs, Canvas, Panos, Bednet, Natuurpunt, Colruyt Group, 11.11.11, Luca School of Arts, NewB, Autism Europe, Caritas and many others.
We are a small team, passionate about their craft and teamwork. We enjoy shipping things together and we like each other enough to share a drink or the occasional pie. We work both remotely and from our office in Genval, the choice is in your hands. Being based in Belgium, our team is fluent in English, Dutch and French.
Koalect as a company is proud to invest in its people to help them learn new languages and skills. Because one can never be too curious and eager to learn, Koalas attend conferences, take English lessons and have too many books to read, on their very working time.
In this ultra-connected era, work-life balance matters. We don’t want people to work on their free time or weekends. We expect you to make your best work when it’s working time. We expect you to enjoy life besides Koalect when it’s free time.
Last thing but not least: Koalect has been founded by young cis white guys. When we started to grow, we hired other people like us. Of course we were not aiming to this situation on purpose, but we didn’t do anything to avoid it either. That is something we want to make better. Diversity means a lot to us so please, feel free to apply whatever your age, how you identify or the color of your skin, and ours.
