Do you have a passion for (digital) innovation and sustainability? Does delivering excellent consumer service excite you? Do you like solving problems and do you have sublime language skills to professionally play with words? Then we are looking for you!

We are looking for creative minds who are fluent in French (C1 level), for our partner, the inspiring Dutch healthcare brand, Philips.

Apply and join our team of social media engagement specialists, to service one of our most innovative international clients.


RIFF Digital Engagement is a challenging and creative workspace, where you can exhaust your language skills and creativity all day long. You will be representing our partner, Philips, on various social media pages and online review platforms.

Our Philips 24/7 engagement team have been interacting with consumers across the globe for over five years, 24 hours per day, 365 days a year, and work hand in hand with our local market teams, like our Philips Benelux or UK & Ireland teams.

As an Engagement Specialist, you excel at working independently. Your empathy and creativity are the foundation of a world class online experience for Philips’ consumers.


What you will be doing

  • You will monitor all online expressions on Philips’ social media channels and keep a close eye on escalations and hot topics.
  • You will answer questions from potential and existing consumers about the Philips product portfolio, in French.
  • You will improve the customer satisfaction on all our partner’s social media channels, forums and review sites and strive for a 100% customer satisfaction.
  • You will proactively share feedback with Philips, to ensure they can continue to improve their product portfolio and services.

Who are you?

No work experience? No problem! We are looking for a word magician who knows how to empathise with customers. You know exactly what the customer means and can translate this into creative answers. ‘Out of the box’ describes the way you solve customer queries, answering their questions. Working in a complex, dynamic organisation gives you energy. The working hours are great for a student who is finishing their Bachelor’s or Master’s degree. Already finished your degree? Even better. A position as a social media engagement specialist is perfect for young professionals who want to start a successful career. The only experience we require is experience with using social media (Twitter, Facebook). Personal use counts as well. Besides that, you speak and write French on a native level and are able to hold a conversation in English.

Where will you work?

Our office is located in Amsterdam and close to various public transport hubs. We work with various different teams, for a diverse portfolio of exciting brands, in multiple languages.
