In its communication Main wants to radiate thought leadership as a leading European software investor.

The channels and topics are varied, from press releases about the acquisitions of Main to whitepapers with tips for software entrepreneurs, and can be brought to life with your help. Since events are very important for Main, you also give substance to the program and communication of the various events. For input you liaise with the Investment team (in the 3 regions), the Performance Excellence and Market Intelligence Group, Investor Relations and our portfolio companies. In addition, you are responsible for placing the content on the websites and social media channels of Main.

In addition, someone with an eye for detail; you must be able to fish the double spaces out of a text. A ‘solid discussion partner’ who knows how to hold his/her own in communication and interviews with C-levels. You like being responsible for something from the first idea to the finishing touch.
