Event Marketing Manager

Who are we?

We are VinoKilo.

We are a growing team on a mission to make second hand 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 close proximities to the airport and our central European location makes us open to the world.

  • You will help us educate customers and potential customers on second hand fashion and sustainability.
  • You will strategize with us to create challenging, yet achievable goals and then hit them.
