About us
Remember when you were a student? Most likely you were short of cash and had a limited choice of jobs. Our Founders Cihan, Frederik and Fritz remember that too and that’s why they started Zenjob. We believe you should be able to do a job you like and be able to fund your life as a student.

Our vision is to change the future of work with technology. We start doing that by offering students jobs in real-time through our app and providing companies with a platform that manages their staffing needs. Today more than 10.000 students, we call them Talents, fund their studies through Zenjob and already close to 1.000 companies trust us with providing great talent.

We’ve come a long way in a short space of time. While there are many things we’re already proud of achieving, there are still a lot of decisions to be made - so you’ll get to shape and build things from scratch. 

Our international (23 different nationalities) and creative team of over 150 ambitious and passionate Zenies are at the core of what makes us unique and who we are. It’s important that we acknowledge and celebrate this diversity. As an equal opportunities employer, we believe the foundation of our dynamic and pioneering spirit starts with a fair and inclusive culture. 

We are backed by Acton Capital (also investor in Etsy, HomeToGo), Red Alpine (N26, Juniqe) and Atlantic Labs (EyeEm, Soundcloud). All of them share our vision of growing a sustainable and game changing business.
 
We are looking forward to welcoming YOU!

The Team

The People & Culture Team plays an important part in the success of Zenjob. To date, we have supported the growth of our team who now number more than 180 people throughout Germany.

  • Develop and nurture a feedback culture that continually improves the workplace experience

  • Track and manage the budget for this area with a focus on value for money without compromising on quality

  • Contribute to the employee onboarding experience and ongoing acknowledgements of anniversaries and special events

  • Support event planning both internally and externally

  • Lead, coach and develop a small team
