Job description

StuDocu was founded on the principle that equal access to study notes reduces inequality between students. Today, we make it easy for 17 million students to share notes. The product was a rocket ship from day one, and has shown strong product-market fit on every continent, making us a key player in the exploding EdTech space. We just received a $50 million series B investment so we’re in rapid growth and scale mode, and we need serious talent to help us make it happen.

Thirteen awesome Content Operations Agents are currently working at StuDocu to make sure our content is top-notch. For us “the content is king” and it’s them who check hundreds of reported documents and know-how to gather data about the universities we would like to add to our portfolio. Are you a student who is living in Randstad and looking to work 20-30 hours a week for a great company that likes to party and have fun together? Then apply and remember to check out @Studocat on Instagram. 👀

  • Review, assess and curate user reported study materials from universities all over the world to ensure the highest standards of quality on the platform.
  • Liaise with Customer Support to ensure smooth communication with our users, helping to keep customer satisfaction as high as possible and avoid miscommunication.
  • Ensure that our database of courses and institutions is up to date and organized in a neat and structured manner.
  • Review and assess user-submitted institutions, courses or modules, and process them accordingly.
  • Retrieve valuable information about student associations, faculties, courses or degrees offered at universities all over the world.

What we bring to the table:

  • We are based in a nice and bright office in the heart of Amsterdam with a large garden, right beside the canals at the Keizersgracht. Our office vibe is awesome and our chef Valentijn makes amazing lunches every day.
  • A fun, young, diverse, and energetic international team of 13 Operations Agents.
  • We work hard to make the world a better place and we celebrate success. In the past, we travelled together to Bali, South Africa, and went skiing in the Alps. We often take our company boat to tour the canals or organize BBQs in the park.
  • Free lunch, coffee, snacks, and Friday drinks when you come to the office.
  • The salary is EUR 11.60 per hour.
