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.
The impact you will create at Vinokilo:
We are looking for energetic and motivated individuals to join our Ecommerce operations team for the fields' fulfilment, production or steaming. You will play a huge part in building the world's biggest secondhand fashion online store, by working hand in hand to create a positive internal and external impact for Vinokilo.
As a working student, you will be responsible for
- Packaging all our vintage treasures
- Coordinating returns
- Answering customer requests and questions online
- Titling all our hand-picked vintage treasures for our online store

- Your work will be meaningful, challenging, and have a tangible impact on the future of Vinokilo.
- You’ll get to work with a diverse team of individuals, all passionate about the impact we’re collectively creating.

- We are based in one of the most stunning areas with the beautiful countryside on our doorstep, yet a short hop, skip and a jump away from Mainz, and the hustle and bustle of Frankfurt and its International airport.
- We believe in working flexibly and putting the onus on you to create a schedule that works for you and the company.
What we need you to have:
- A learning attitude and independent work ethic
- Ability to work in a team
- Concise and effective communication
NB: We know lots of people, especially women and minorities, do not apply for roles unless they hit all the requirements listed in the 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 role, we want to hear from you.
What we'd be excited if you have:
- Experience in the specific warehouse operations field
- Willingness to speak English and German
