We are currently looking for new cultural specialists to add to our team of volunteers. Together we keep We Own Rotterdam up-to-date and relevant for Rotterdam inhabitants, expats and visitors from abroad seeking a memorable time in Rotterdam.

We are a small and informal team of cultural fetishists coordinated by our Chef de Mission and Editor-in-Chief, backed by our board members. We go deep for Rotterdam culture, mainly the smaller, upcoming grassroot events initiated for & visited by the young at heart. Our website visitors consider us their guide for the next thing not to miss. Tonight. Or this weekend.


Editorial Staff Members

To provide our visitors a complete event overview to have great time in our city, we are seeking for Cultural Specialists. What? Well… the go-to guys and gals whenever you need to know what’s happening in Rotterdam in a specific cultural field or Rotterdam area. Our Editorial Staff members tirelessly scroll the internet, flyers, Facebook, etc to publish cool small events to our calendar. Candidates with specific interest in our categories Film, Food, People and Shop will receive pie when added to the team. Candidates adding cool events in the south of Rotterdam get cream on their pie.

This job requires a few hours per week of your time. We meet once a month to discuss progress and new plans for our platform. Do you have additional ideas for our platform? Bring it on and together we’ll make it happen!

Feel like having a chat about joining our crew? Send us a short pitch to heyholetsgo@weownrotterdam.com.


Chef de Mission

We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic CEO who can take our platform and our team to the next level. This tireless hustler ensures that no underground event is missing in our cultural web. You keep our organization cooking, handle daily business and together with the board you formulate and implement dots on the horizon. Taking the lead is your second nature, you speak and write both NL and ENG. You maintain contact with Rotterdam’s cultural producers, you recruit & coordinate our staff and find artists to make new artwork. Making plans and keeping stakeholders engaged is also part of the job.

And all this on a voluntary basis, like the rest of our organization. The job requires about a day of your week. If all of this doesn’t turn you off, then please send us a short pitch to heyholetsgo@weownrotterdam.com with the subject ‘Chef de Mission’ and tell us why we really should have a beer with you!
