Shypple is here to simplify and conducting global trade frictionless!
As a digital forwarder, Shypple offers all services required to ship goods from A to Z. From door pick-ups, pick-up, customs brokerage, ocean, air and rail freight to on-demand warehousing, we are there for our customers!

Our vision is to make global trade virtually frictionless. We believe that by doing so, we will make it not only easier, but also cheaper to conduct. Trade is what makes our world prosper and we believe every person or company on the globe should have equal access to it.

Do you want to board our ship and join the team?

Your Shypple Journey

As a Growth Marketeer you will work at the heart of Shypple’s inbound, content driven business strategy. As our very first marketeer within the team, you will set a clear, KPI driven marketing strategy with the goal of establishing Shypple as a thought leader within the industry.

You will be in charge of all marketing activities both online and offline. You will build up our entire marketing strategy from scratch by setting up all our different marketing channels and providing them with the right marketing content. However, you don’t have to be a pro just yet; we are looking for the highly talented and ambitious allround marketeer that wants to develop into a potential future Head of Marketing. Up for the challenge?


What you need to build your Shypmarine:

To make this happen, you would have to be the main driver (and currently our main master!) in the following:

  • Content: you will create, distribute and measure articles, updates and white papers for various types of accounts and prospects, in multiple lifecycle stages

  • Online marketing (SEO): you will optimise online search results to maximize organic website traffic and conversions.

  • Online advertising (SEA): you will (A/B test) propositions and ensure that we stay top of mind for our target personas within relevant industries

  • Affiliate marketing: you will work together with the sales department in setting up partnerships with 3rd parties for blogs, podcasts and referral programs.

  • Public relations: you will develop your own network of media contacts and industry organisations to stay top of mind at the media, the logistics industry and branche associations.

  • Database marketing: you will dive into our user database and help our sales department coordinate efforts to improve.

What we offer on-board:

  • An inspiring working environment with highly driven and motivated colleagues

  • A 1.000 euro valued laptop for business and private use

  • Cool industrial office space in the city centre of Rotterdam’s famous Witte de With street. Enjoy the view of Rotterdam’s skyline from your desk. :)

  • A sunny rooftop terrace for our Friday company lunch and afternoon drinks.

  • Access to our newly builded gym in the basement to keep you fit and strong!

  • An amazing culture of responsibility and freedom to turn your ambition into reality.

  • The chance to disrupt one of the largest and most conservative industries in the world!

Why you are the ideal Shyppler

You have 2 - 4 years of working experience with hands on creation and management of KPI driven marketing strategies. You are an allround marketeer, with at least the basic knowledge on all the channels mentioned above. You are not the in-depth pro, but you do know how to handle the responsibility of planning, executing and reporting on all of them. It might feel like you are doing multiple jobs at once every now and then, but knowing that you can learn crazy fast and develop yourself into a high-class marketeer specialist or even a Head of Marketing, motivates you to get better every day. You know how to work in a fast growing and collaborative startup environment; this is also where you strong verbal and written communication skills in Dutch and English will be needed.

You will get the great responsibility to set up our marketing department to support our company and help us grow to the next level… while doing the same for yourself. You want to take the chance to disrupt and change one of the largest and most conservative industries in the world!
