Working at Bou

When joining Bou, you'll get to work directly with our 100+ brands, ranging from early-stage companies to more established brands, universities, and nonprofits. And we really do mean directly – we don’t have key account managers or pure strategists at Bou. You'll become a part of an all-hands-on-deck team building brands through marketing, communications, design, and web development.

Daily tasks

In this PR and communications role, your typical day might include copywriting for a punchy op-ed, working on an international media strategy, or sparring directly with a brand’s C-level executive on ad hoc PR opportunities. Or maybe you'll media train their entire leadership team ahead of a major product launch.

Required skills

  • 3+ years of communications experience – this could mean working at an agency, in-house, or in the field of journalism
  • 1+ years experience working with the media – you have a profound understanding of how the media works and what it takes to break through in the news stream (or a journalist’s inbox)
  • Excellent writing skills and mastery of tone of voice – you’re quick at digesting new information and wired to turn it into a provoking story, regardless of the format
  • Client communications and project management abilities – you keep a cool head under pressure, and can give and take candid feedback well
  • Sincere interest to learn from a wide range of industries – we build brands for a great variety of products and companies, from handcrafted coffee to mobile games and new textile materials
  • Excellent written English, native in internet – Nordic languages are an advantage but not a necessity, and having worked with international brands is considered a plus

Applications by Jan 20, 2023

We acknowledge that finding a person who ticks every box is pretty challenging. That’s why we prefer an “If I don’t know, I’ll figure it out” -attitude over having a perfectly matching CV & portfolio.

When we have an optimal candidate, it's just about finding the right time to join forces. Though, as our hands are full, we hope you could start already in early 2023.

Send your casual free form application (and portfolio if you have one) to by January 20 at latest, but bear in mind that we’ll be going through applications on a rolling basis. If you rather work as a freelancer, submit your profile here.
