nexxworks wants YOU!
Do you want to help create the future of our customers, possibly even of society? Are you hungry? Always on the lookout for new inspiration, new answers, new questions, new...
What or who the hell is nexxworks and why should you join?
Nexxworks - the company of, among others, thought-leaders Peter Hinssen, Steven Van Belleghem & Rik Vera - inspires and connects innovators all over the world. We help organizations kickstart their innovation – through our many innovation programs – by confronting them with the latest evolutions in business and technology and by encouraging them to combine a long-term vision with short-term initiatives.
Our customers are typically C-level or mid-management innovation-thirsty profiles from international companies, who are eager to uncover the exciting business possibilities that come with exponential change and (technology) disruption. To help and inspire them, we collaborate with a very diverse ecosystem of renowned thought-leaders, disruptive start-ups, C-level corporate pioneers, experts, academics, investors, consultants and highly innovative entrepreneurs.
Not looking for a job applicant but a match
We’re no longer the type of company that hires people for a specific job function. We know that markets and customers evolve so fast that a specific job will have changed in 2- or 3-years’ time. (Read here why.) That’s why we select people for their nexxworks culture fit, their forward-looking nature, their enthusiasm, their learning agility, their creativity and yes, sometimes even their sense of humour.
In other words, we don’t like to start from “a job” to find a person. We’re looking for someone who can complete us, and just as important: challenge us.
Could that be you?
Who are we hoping that you are?
You are someone who puts the customer first. Always.
You’re a citizen of the world, prepared to work for a Belgian organization.
You’re a natural networker and a master negotiator.
You have leadership skills but are not afraid to get your hands dirty, start-up style.
You thrive when you’re collaborating closely with a team.
You have the heart of an entrepreneur and love to build and experiment.
You’re always hungry to know, see and experience more.
You keep questioning the status quo, especially about what nexxworks does and how it does it.
You’re an expert communicator and you can listen - really listen - to what people are saying.
Having a digital savvy mindset and a hunger for the latest tech evolutions is a definite surplus.
You thrive in a fluid start-up environment.
You have a Master’s or Bachelor’s Degree or enough enthusiasm (and relevant background) to make us forget that you don’t.
You have a driver’s licence (Yes, we know … but for now we still need to drive our own cars) and you do not suffer from aviophobia.
You possess excellent knowledge of English. Basic knowledge of Chinese will be considered extra awesome. (Don’t worry, we’re realistic about the odds.)
Should you be discouraged if you don’t ‘fit’ all of these requirements (we have to admit that we went a little nuts, but that’s just because we’re so enthusiastic)? Of course not. If you think that we would match, then we’re always interested to listen.
Last, but absolutely not least, … what do we have to offer?
A place in the most awesome team of the entire universe (True, it’s really not cool to brag, but we sort of are. (You can ask our parents!).)
The opportunity to work with some of the world’s biggest and most innovative companies.
The chance to help develop one of the most promising brands in the innovation market and have an impact on its short-term and long-term strategy.
An inspiring, fun and flexible working environment that lives on the edge of innovation and change.
Last, but absolutely not least: an attractive salary package including interesting fringe benefits.
