Job description:

Fall in love with Budapest - and then document it! There are two parts to this job.

We'll send you out on the company's dime so that you can grab the content of our experiences in action! What kinds of activities, you may ask? Some of our most popular events are ax throwing, wine tasting, target practice, thermal bath parties, and boat parties. But you can see our full list of offers here !

And of course, when something catches your eye while you're out exploring Budapest, capture that too!


Part 2: Content Creation

Now it's time to loose your creativity!

Turn that content into engagement gold! You'll mainly be focusing on creating Tiktok gems and captivating Instagram stories. Want to propose additional content ideas? We're all ears! And of course, our Content Manager will have weekly brainstorm sessions / check ins with you to make sure you're fully supported.

It'll be your job to experience Budapest to its fullest while capturing it all.
