Digital Platform Strategist

Dept, Amsterdam | Rotterdam

The heart and mind of your digital business.

We're looking for a Digital Platform Strategist with a track record in e-commerce for our Amsterdam or Rotterdam office, who considers it a challenge to make digital platforms better, more efficient and more fun!

As a leading digital agency, we strive to create the best online solutions and make our clients happy. As a Digital Platform Strategist with a specialisation in the (continuous) development of digital products, preferably with a background in e-commerce, you're invaluable in that pursuit!

Are you looking for your next career opportunity and to use your years of experience to take on a bigger responsibility for the further development of digital platforms? Then this role is perfect for you!

As a Digital Platform Strategist, you breathe digital and are constantly contemplating the healthy balance between developing a digital platform and looking towards the future. You're assertive, more than familiar with the market and you've got a keen eye for developments that allow clients to accelerate their digital business, with the ability to explain everything clearly. Your communication methods gain you your client's trust and ensure that they see you as an important conversation partner, on an operational, tactical and strategic level. You're a paragon of advisory sales and notice commercial opportunities which you translate into proposals for the client with the help of the account manager. You also translate visions and strategies into useful roadmaps and backlogs, which clarify what the team of designers, developers and marketeers will be working on. You leave the work to the experts, but like keeping an eye on things and ensuring that no topic such as IT, design, digital marketing or measurability is overlooked. In other words: under your supervision, you craft amazing digital platforms and make clients happy. Does that sound like music to your ears?

We're a young company and our brightest minds spend every day working for a plethora of clients, such as Eneco, BPD, Bol.com, Aegon, Takeaway and Bugaboo.Yes, we are eager to bring on board the most talented experts in the game. But we are also looking for a perfect Dept-fit. Someone who is eager to learn and strives towards a better world, takes the stage, is a futurist at heart, and someone who is down to cheer with us to a successful week as well! We strongly support diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. Ultimately, we are looking for a unique individual who is able to strengthen our collective.


  • Have a university degree in the field of business, innovation or design;
  • Have 3-5 years of experience when it comes to the (further) development of digital products; preferably within e-commerce (such as a product owner, e-commerce manager, conversion specialist, digital strategist, web analyst or business analyst);
  • Are experienced when it comes to developing product visions, multi-year strategies and roadmaps; 
  • Are looking for your next career move where you leverage your expertise to take on a broader responsibility for the establishing and development of digital platforms;
