Important in this role
You are a great communicator. You enjoy crafting copy and texts in English and German (Bonus: French!) and have a proven track record of high-quality copy you authored. You aim to achieve consistency in language and don’t shy away from condensing wordy German phrases into punchy headlines, call-to-actions, and help texts.
For Selma, copy is design
Selma is co-founded by a designer with a special love for copy. Therefore Selma’s tone of voice has been and constantly is crafted with attention to detail. You’d take on shaping how Selma talks in German and in English – in the web service, the mobile apps, and in promotional messages.
Embedded in talented teams
Since good copy is every, you'll be working across the Selma team. Your closest colleagues will be in marketing and design. The marketing team of 5 is a creative bunch of acquisition, engagement, SoMe and community talents.
Your “home base” is Selma’s design team. Valeria (Head of Design) and Henrik (Senior UX/UI designer) are here to provide you with guidance and peer support. The design team’s shared responsibility is to mature, polish and shepherd the brand – making Selma look and sound lovely and appealing across all touch points."

How much do I need to know about finance?
Honestly, not that much – the onboarding is set up in a way for you to get up to speed quickly.

After all, you will have to explain the difficult financial jargon in smart, friendly and humorous ways. Your day-to-day work therefore directly contributes to making the industry accessible for everyone!
