factor-a is the leading service provider for marketplace management and part of Dept Marketplaces.
In April 2016, we started in Cologne and have since grown from 12 to more than 90 employees. Our rapid expansion is also driven by the steady growth of Amazon itself.
Still Day One is the motto that drives us. We would like to start together with you! We will never be satisfied with the status quo and want to remain a pioneer in our field.
Whether you are part of our international online editorial team, where you learn how to create premium content within the scope of Search Engine Optimization, our new business team, in the area of key accounts, paid advertising or information technology, you have the choice between many different interesting departments at factor-a. You have your own area of responsibility for each project and are thus an important part of our team. Grow with us in your position and take advantage of the development opportunities within the company. Explore the different fields of work and find out which area is interesting for you. Our experts will be happy to help guide you in this fast-paced learning environment.
Knowing that it is best to work in a harmonious team, we all work together in one room. Dept Marketplaces’ headquarters are located in a new loft in the city centre, directly next to the Stadtgarten in the vibrant Belgian Quarter.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for employees with a strong desire to be part of a growing, young company. If you have just finished secondary school or university, are looking for a practical internship to accompany your studies or already have work experience under your belt, you have come to the right place.
A high level of dedication, the contribution of your own ideas and suggestions as well as the desire to participate in project or content creation is extremely important to us.
Your daily work is exciting and varied due to the cooperation with various reputable customers. This means that you will not only develop yourself professionally, but also personally at factor-a and benefit from your experience in the long term. As part of our team, we count on you and expect a high degree of motivation. Naturally, we are not all work and no play. We sweeten our everyday life with a round of two of table football or a chat on the large bean bags in the cosy sitting areas.
That’s what awaits you!
We think and operate internationally.
Creative minds from Germany, France, Spain, Italy, the USA, Japan, Turkey, Russia, Luxembourg, England, Bulgaria, Poland, Brazil and Austria, Vietnam, Greece, Iran, Colombia, Bolivia, Chile, Mexico, Gabun, Trinidad and Tobago, and the Netherlands enrich our team.
Be part of our multicultural crew and benefit from working with clients from all over the world.
Since the various departments work hand in hand, we use short communication channels and learn from each other on a daily basis.
Since you spend most of your time at work, you not only work together but live together.
It is, therefore, very important at factor-a to provide a space in which you feel comfortable.
A never-ending supply of drinks and fresh fruit as well as a decent biscuit ration ensure that your stomach is always full and your blood sugar (and mood) is always high.
The daily table football duel ensures the right dose of fun and exercise!
Relax on the picnic blanket during lunch breaks in the park nearby and get to know your work colleagues better. In the Belgian Quarter, there is also a large selection of places to enjoy your lunch break, whether it be at a restaurant, deli or café.
We value the attributes of reliability and fairness when working on joint projects.
The working day often ends even more pleasantly with a drink in the local pub across the street. These relaxing evenings are a must. And we must also mention our legendary company events.
Factor Playing Field
At factor-a, cooperation with flat hierarchies is the order of the day. Disagreements are resolved respectfully and discussion is highly desirable. Without an exchange of views, there is no progress!
Cologne is known for its open-mindedness and relaxed tone of voice.
Get to know and love the Rhenish friendliness during a cosy visit to a pub. The city on the Rhine offers a wide range of cultural and leisure activities, so that you will never be bored after work. Discover art from different eras in the numerous museums or boost your heart rate with a round of laser tag. Every joker will find exactly the right thing here!
A bike tour along the Rhine, a barbecue in the park or a Sunday’s flea market stroll – life in Cologne takes place outside.
Numerous parks and squares invite you to simply relax and unwind or watch the pulsating city life. This also applies to Cologne’s cosy cafés. Here the barista of your choice spoils you with delicious coffee specialities. Do you love good food and like to try something new? The culinary offerings in Cologne are enormous. From the ardent vegan to the passionate steak lover, Cologne caters to all palates.
Throw yourself into the exciting nightlife! Bars and clubs are romping along the rings, but also in the individual neighbourhoods.
The Dept Marketplaces loft is right in the middle of it all and offers you an attractive workplace, in addition to the charming city.
In this sense: TO THE MOON!
