We know it, you know it. Most companies ramble on about purpose and making the world a better place. And pretty often it feels a bit… well, forced. But we’d like to think that our story is special for real. Hear us out. The story of Nextory began in Syria, where our founders grew up. When they were children, they witnessed how the dictatorship limited the access to books, and saw what it did to their country. So when Shadi and Ninos came to Sweden, they made it their mission to make books available to everyone. Fast forward a few years, and Nextory was born. We offer a monthly subscription where our users can read and listen to as many books as they like. Sounds like a pretty cool product to work with, right? We think so too!
We’re on the hunt for a Content Manager Finland to join our amazing Global Content team at our HQ in Stockholm on the quest of making the world a happier and more democratic place.
So who are we looking for?
As Content Manager FI you will be responsible for onboarding new publishers, and to develop and maintain good relationships with our current publishers in Finland. You will daily onboard eBooks and Audiobooks to the Nextory service. With a creative mindset, you will make sure that our content and editorial lists are always relevant and interesting. For this you will have to be the voice and ear to the local publishers and market every day and frequently update the team and management on market specific news, events and competitors. The role involves many contact areas both internally and externally and you will report to the Head of Content Acquisition.
The position is based in Stockholm and is perfect for someone who likes to work in a fast-moving and entrepreneurial tech company, who has a results focused mind and who has a genuine passion for books. You will learn from dedicated colleagues who are passionate about the products and entrepreneurship!
WHO YOU ARE
We could be going on about how many years of experience you should have, but it’s more important to us that you’re good at what you do, and that you’re a good fit in our team. So here’s pretty much what we’re looking for:
• We believe you have an education in, for example economy, sales or marketing
• We believe you have a couple of years experience in the publishing business, or perhaps another streaming service.
• We believe you have great communication skills in Finnish and English as both languages are required in the daily work
As a person, you are structured and you find it easy to get an overview of several parts of the work process. Self-employed work is something you enjoy as you have the ability to start as well as drive activities on your own and make decisions that create workflow. Furthermore, you are a relationship-builder who sees how your long-term partnerships are linked to the company's brand, both within the publishing world and within sales!
Think we’re a match? Then we can’t wait to hear from you!
We review the applications on an ongoing basis and will fill the position by agreement with the right candidate.
