Community Manager (m/w)

Community Manager (m/w)

Schacht One is the dedicated pioneer for digital innovation within the Haniel Group. We identify, validate, and incubate digital opportunities to generate revenue and establish new sources of income. With this we enable Haniel to stay “enkelfähig”.

We are a subsidiary of “Franz Haniel & Cie. GmbH” located at the Zollverein UNESCO World Heritage Site. Schacht One stands for innovation, perseverance, and authenticity! Some 165 years ago, Franz Haniel laid the foundation for the industrialization of the Ruhr by mass-mining coveted fat coal at Pit 1 of the Zollverein mine. At Schacht One, we now mine the fuel for growth in the future: digital ideas.

Our offices serve as a protected space and creative retreat for digital projects. Thus, we need you as Community Manager (m/w) to help us preserve the energy and create an innovative work environment. We look for someone with a strong character, who is always ahead of the chaos, orchestrates and organizes all necessary activities at Schacht One, and manages our location. Don't be afraid to call the shots and make the team follow your orders. We need you to provide us with structure when it comes to our work space and back-office processes. 

You will be provided with all the flexibility you need to re-define structures and processes from your point-of-view. In line with our overall mindset, we are willing to rethink ourselves from scratch. Some back-office tasks such as bookkeeping and invoicing are handled at the Haniel holding. We want to establish procedures with maximum flexibility and agility.

Our network of external suppliers, customers, and peers is fantastic and steadily growing. It will be your job to coordinate events together with the respective project managers and be the central contact person whenever questions arise. 

Moreover, you will shape Schacht One’s face! You will be in charge of our website, career site, and Facebook and LinkedIn accounts.

When we think about you, we believe you should...

  • ... be where the magic happens! On-site presence is mandatory – however, a part-time arrangement is possible
  • … have fun to work in a dynamic and constantly changing environment
  • … have prior experience in managing startups or small office spaces such as design agencies or event companies
  • … not be shy of telling people what to do
  • … have organizational skills that you have proven in practice
  • … be fluent in German. Some correspondence with partners and customers may be in English
  • … stand out from the crowd with regards to your organizational talent and spirit to motivate people

Perks & Benefits

As a member of the Schacht One team, you are more than a small cog in the wheel - you have the opportunity to create impact on the digital journey of the Haniel group. We are startup and corporate rolled into one - something unique for sure.

  • The Approach

    The location and our team are unique. Together we rock the house and bridge corporate gaps to create tangible assets and digital services instead of pure Powerpoint presentations.

  • The Learnings

    At Schacht One, you will have the opportunity to gain in-depth insights into the (digital) challenges of various business models. To cope with these challenges, we employ our profound and constantly growing network of partners and try out new ways of problem solving on a daily basis.

  • The Serious Fun

    We are not external consultants – we are partners of our business units. Our mission is not generating the highest profit, but helping our customers to succeed on their journey. Our unique positioning in the Haniel group creates intrinsic motivation in the project teams and trust into our approach at the same time. We don't expect 16-hour work shifts - we push for self-responsibility.

  • The Financials

    We believe, working at Schacht One is a benefit by itself. We also believe that great work requires appropriate financial compensation. Thus, we offer a competitive salary. Most positions at Schacht One also include a company car.

Workplace & Culture

Schacht One feels like a startup with corporate DNA. Of course, we have table-tennis and foosball tables. Of course, we don't wear suits and ties. And yes, our offices look really cool. However, we still care a great deal about "corporate challenges".

We believe teamwork is key, making personal fit the most crucial job requirement. Aside from our professional passion for change and innovation, we still want to have a lot of fun together.
