Digital talents and experienced digital managers are now more urgently required than ever before. However, this high demand makes the search for the right employees all the more challenging and complex – not least because of the fast-growing degree of specialisation and the increasing demands placed by candidates. Key positions can therefore often not be filled at all, or then only after a long search.

We are specialised.

As an HR consultancy, we are highly specialised in e-commerce & digital marketing. We act swiftly and in adherence with high-quality standards to find the right digital specialists, digital leaders and young talent for your business: from SEO experts to shop managers, from head of e-commerce to chief digital officer.

We come from business.

Our consultants and experts all come from operational practice and have held senior and operational positions in e-commerce and digital marketing. We know how online marketing works, how to assemble a content marketing team, what good reporting looks like and how to successfully carry out SEO. Not only are we able to assess whether potential candidates in the market are a professional and cultural mat for you – we also verify it!

We are optimally networked.

In addition to our own expertise, we have a large network of experienced specialists that we activate for your business – from acquiring the ideal employee to finding you someone with whom to discuss a specialised subject.

We think out of the box.

It goes without saying that we are delighted to you your ‘headhunters’ and recruiters. However, we also consider ourselves partners and consultants in all matters concerning your ‘digital organisation’ – whether in the start-up or in the group. Because we firmly believe that in the current environment, recruitment involves far more than merely ‘quickly’ finding a new employee. It is about optimally assembled teams and an appropriately structured organisation that functions in line with the company objectives. Even the best candidates and ‘high potentials’ cannot be successful if the organisation or processes get in the way or the new employee does is not a match for the company culture. That is why we would like to be your partner and consultant in all matters concerning your team and your organisation.

We are open and transparent.

We don’t offer you candidates merely to close the deal. Our objective is to build a long-term partnership with you, and this requires more. That is why we advise you honestly, openly, frankly and sometimes also a bit bluntly.

(De) Kundenstimmen

“Of course we also recruit people ourselves. But Thomas Schaeben and his Digital Vikings are our go-to guys when we have come to a dead end. Especially when it comes to online marketing, content & social media, we have been able to fill many positions through Digital Vikings – from “Junior” to “Head of”. One huge advantage is that the candidates have been vetted, and their professional credentials and cultural capital have been checked, so it cuts down on the amount of work we have to do internally. I would like to emphasize the very individual guidance and advice they give – this is increasingly difficult to find these days with service providers.”

- Markus Winter (CFO)

“We are a small but very successful boutique consulting firm in the digital environment so it is absolutely essential that we attract top performers who fit in with us and with our culture. Thomas Schaeben always manages to find top people and inspire them to come and work for us.”

- Lennard Grewe (Partner)

“Thomas Schaeben walked us through the process of looking for a chief digital officer. What impressed me was that he also has an in-depth understanding of organizational issues in the area of e-commerce. He was therefore able to give us important strategic advice when it came to setting up a new service unit for Hawesko.”

- Anna-Lena Ackermann (Head of Human Resources)

“I have worked with several recruitment consultants in the past. Digital Vikings simply delivers the most suitable specialists for our vacancies in e-commerce from its bank of resources.”

- Thorsten Van der Velten (CEO)

“Thomas Schaeben helped us to find a new e-commerce manager. During the search he also gave us some very valuable advice and input regarding the structure of the overall organization. So for us it was a great service with added value!”

- Ulf Cronenberg (Director of Marketing and Sales)

“Thomas Schaeben has an excellent understanding of all aspects of e-commerce and transformation. He has the experience to weed out the candidates who won’t really fit and pick the ones who are entirely right for the business. He was able to fill a very important management position in purchasing in our company which is absolutely critical to the success of the digital transformation of Westphalia.”

- Jens Ullrich (Head of eCommerce)
