Updated February 21st 2017.
We care for clear, purposeful, effective, joyful, balanced, collaborative work.
We are currently seven team members and are looking for more people to join us. Feel free to apply for any role that you find in our online governance records – we are not attached to the ones that we hold, and we share them anyway.
1) We are not looking to build up employed staff at the moment. We will consider freelancers / contractors only, with the possible exception of student interns.
2) We are currently receiving way more applications than we can even respond to properly. If you would like to work with us, make your message competitive, by being clear and straightforward, and bold, and detailed enough for us to get an idea of how to proceed: What do you need? What do you want? What do you think Structure & Process can offer you? What might you have to offer to Structure & Process, or members of our team? What languages do you speak and write fluently? What are your thoughts/feeling/wishes/needs regarding money?
Enlarging the capacity of our consulting team
We are looking for a junior consultant to join the consulting team (lead by Martina), who will take over Quality Assurance and work as what we call “Second Consultant” or “Consulting Assistant” on project teams. You will also be assigned Research & Intelligence.
This is our most urgent hiring priority right now.
You will need to speak German and be available for projects taking place in Berlin and Dresden.
Energising our Events business
We produce these occasionally now, and wish for a more stable and generous offer of seminars, workshops and unconferences. We know that our team has a lot to share, but often gets bogged down in daily work. We wish that you work with our partners and our community, get in touch with their knowledge, skills and experience and package it into useful training and seminar offers.
We wish for stable operations in this business: can you design efficient and beautiful processes for registrations and communication with participants? We enjoy teaching in seminars, but we actually need someone to put the whole things together for us. Could this be you?
Sales / Project Acquisition
This is a job for someone who enjoys people and is not shy to call new people up on the phone. The purpose is to stay in touch with people who have previously connected to us and see when is the right moment to set up a project.
You will get access to our sales pipeline full of contacts to get in touch with. Call them up, get to know them, find out what they need, and pass the lead on to our consulting team or our collaborator community. Of course, you can join the consulting project team to deliver the work, if you are so inclined: we are open for Salespeople who want to learn consulting, as we are for consultants who want to level up their sales skills by working in this function.
You will be supported by Martina, who has 15 years of experience in consulting sales and is a professional sales coach and Rainer, who is an experienced organisational developer and personal development coach.
We currently work in German, English and Dutch/Flemish; with German being the main language in consulting work.
For all work with us you need to be comfortable reading and writing in English and speaking English when collaborating with others. For any work in current consulting projects, solid understanding of spoken German is necessary.
Our clients and business partners speak German, English, Dutch, French, Czech, Slovak, Finnish, Swedish, Danish and Italian. We would be happy to expand our business internationally, so feel invited to bring your language skills in!
Written material, virtual work environments
As a multi-local team, we use a lot of written online communication: Slack and Trello are our internal communication platforms, Glassfrog is the governance and meeting-support backend. We use some Skype and Zoom for videoconferencing. You should be comfortable working in online environments that use written text as their main medium or you won’t be happy with us. You should generally like your computer probably, or you will suffer. (In fact, we will all suffer. ;-))
Geography, Partner Meetings
Our team is based in Germany, the Netherlands and Austria; in Dresden, Tilburg, Heidelberg, Berlin and Graz.
We operate a small office in Dresden as the base for our consulting team and meet all together about once every other month in varying locations. In these partner meetings, we collaborate on operative and strategic work, share learnings, and network with outside partners. These meetings have so far taken place in Dresden, Prague, Vienna, Espoo, Tampere, Utrecht, Philadelphia, Berlin, Frankfurt am Main, Düsseldorf, Oldenburg and Heidelberg, sometimes on the fringe of conferences and other professional gatherings. The next one is May 2017 in Dresden.
Our current clients are all located in or around Berlin.
There are no fixed work times or vacation rules at Structure & Process: You work when you work and take a break when you take a break. We care for good life-work-balance. When applying, it helps to let us know how much time you want to put into the company for starters, and to how much it would grow ideally.
Our compensation system is extremely simple. :-) What do you need? What do you want? Be straightforward in expressing your wishes and expectations around money when contacting us, please.
Holacracy Operating System
Structure & Process uses Holacracy(R) as its operating system. This gives partners great freedom in their work, and a structure to take influence, learn and develop together. If you already know Holacracy, that is great (and do let us know when you contact us!); if not, we will teach you.
Our past email newsletters can give you an impression of how we roll. Our feeds on Facebook or Twitter, our link collection on Tumblr and our company blog can also show you what we do and what we are interested in.
