Who are we?

We are Vinokilo.

We are a growing team on a mission to make secondhand fashion more desirable than new, fast fashion. Why? Because we believe fashion should be stylish and sustainable.

We are based in Bodenheim, a beautiful town in the middle of wine country, 12 km south of downtown Mainz on the edge of the Frankfurt Rhine-Main Region. Our proximity to the airport and our central European location makes us open to the world. As an E-commerce Marketing Student, you will have the opportunity to directly impact our sales performances with data-driven decision making.

 Being our E-commerce Marketing Student would make you an integral part of the Vinokilo family. You would be able to develop the basic foundation of digital marketing, and make data-driven decisions. You will be responsible for creating strategies along with the E-commerce Sales & Marketing Manager and have a direct impact on sales performances. Your role will also include developing new strategies for email marketing, as well as social media marketing, where you will focus on Instagram and LinkedIn.

One step at a time, you'll help our mission to make secondhand fashion readily available and help build the biggest secondhand fashion company in the world. This may seem like a wild statement, but it's more realistic with you on board because:

  • You will build new and fine tune existing email marketing automations
  • You will track performances of both email marketing and LinkedIn strategies with KPIs

  • You will be working closely with E-commerce Sales & Marketing Manager to alternate email marketing strategy according to sales goals and brand campaigns. 
  • You will be involved in brand marketing campaigns’ brainstorming sessions with the social media team.


You’ll love this role because:

  • You’ll be playing a leading role in the fight against fast fashion.
  • You are passionate about sustainability and secondhand fashion. 
  • Your work will be meaningful, challenging, and will have a tangible impact on the future of Vinokilo. 
  • You value long term profitability and sustainability over short term gains. 
  • There is plenty of room for growth, for the company and the role.
  • You enjoy taking responsibility and calculated risks.

What you need to have:

  • Education level: Bachelor students or above
  • No previous experience is required.
  • Fluency in both English (main) and German is needed
  • Familiarity in using Google Spreadsheets (not excel) 
  • You should be 
    • a fast-learner and data-driven
    • a team player
    • independent and problem-solving
    • keen to take on challenges
    • willing to take up risks & responsibilities
    • honest
    • open to and be positive about feedback from the team
    • willing to test and fail and test again with us!

NB: We know lots of people, especially women and other minorities, do not apply for roles unless they hit all the requirements listed in Job Descriptions— these are normally wish lists. We’ve tried to simplify this list into what we actually NEED you to have and what would be nice. Either way, if you feel this is your perfect role, we want to hear from you.


What we bring to the table:

Vinokilo offers the opportunity to work with a vibrant and diverse group of people, building a product we all deeply care about, in addition to:

  • Learning and Growth: We focus on the growth of each individual and support internal workshops with guest speakers, external workshops and programs to improve our employees’ qualifications and enhance their journey with us.
  • Wellbeing: We always have a basket of healthy fruits and snacks in the office. We like to outsource our meetings and, whenever possible, enrich them with a balanced breakfast. Our smoothie maker is ready for you to get your daily dose of vitamins.
    The train station is approx. a 5-minute walk away. If you have a car, you can also benefit from our free parking spaces.
  • Generous time off: 25 vacation days + public holidays. Furthermore, it is important to us to enable each employee to have the opportunity to participate in important holidays within the framework of his or her beliefs or convictions. 
  • Work-Life Balance: We offer flexible working (based on your team) and our office is dog-friendly!
  • Sustainability: Need new clothes? Profit from our vintage stock with your staff discount.
    You can also prepare your lunch in our kitchen, so you don't have to resort to takeaway/fast food.
    We offer a shared wardrobe for our employees, where you can drop off clothes you don't want anymore and pick up items from others.
  • Fun: We love to celebrate our successes at Vinokilo. We have amazing winter and summer parties and also host internal employee socials such as quiz night, games night, movie nights and more.
