HUBS Recruits: Join our student team!

We are looking for new members to join our Growth Hackers -team. Apply latest 21st of April 2022. Your future team members; Juuso, Katrina and Pinja are already eager to meet you!

Growth Hackers -student team has an important role in promoting HUBS amongst the students of Tampere Universities. We are now offering work for students interested in entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial competencies!

What does HUBS do?

We offer free-choice studies that develop the skills and knowledge of students around the themes of innovation and entrepreneurship. We support students who are planning to become entrepreneurs or have already become entrepreneurs in our Sparring clinic, through our mentor network and in our courses, that help to develop one’s own business idea and versatile skills that are needed as an entrepreneur. Our activities are open for every student in the Tampere Universities, regardless the field or year of study.

As a team member of HUBS, each Growth Hacker gets the chance to enhance, depending on their own strengths and interests, for example teamwork skills, performance skills, event production, sales & marketing and also coaching.

I started in the summer of 2021 as a marketing coordinator for Growth Hackers and in the fall I became the Team Leader for Growth Hackers.
I learned a lot about innovating, implementing and documenting projects. HUBS has good, clear tools and also the freedom to develop one’s own operating methods.

I really enjoyed working with new student acquaintances and inspiring coaches. HUBS’s competent team is happy to teach you almost anything that interests you. There are many and very different tasks, fortunately not everything has to be done but we can choose as a team what we’ll execute.

I gave a 15min speech in English in a webinar, held lectures (2 hours long), learnt team leader skills like leading meetings, gaining an overall picture and creating team spirit. I also practiced networking, and have seen in practice a close team effort and problem-solving ability. In this job, there are no boring weeks! In addition, being a Growth Hacker also looks pretty nice on my CV 😉!

Working hours and compensation

As a Growth Hacker I was able to organize events, implement my ideas and get to know great people across campus boundaries! My development targets were especially teamwork, English language skills and performing. These and many other things, such as using Canva and assisting in courses, I got to train throughout the season.

English proficiency and performance were put to the test when I was able to host a Kahoot quiz for an event with participants from 19 different countries! HUBS’s work community is wonderful, and things are done with a twinkle in the eye. I can only warmly recommend becoming a Growth Hacker!
