Customer feedback

“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)

Job applicant feedback

“Digital Vikings enabled me to take the next step on the career ladder. The application process was totally transparent and indicative of an honest and super professional approach, with input and support from the first recruitment interviews and feedback after interviews at the company right through to follow-up interviews while already employed at the company. Finding Digital Vikings was a real stroke of luck!”

- Andreas Hartmann ( Head of Campaigns )

“Thomas was very open and easy to talk to right from the beginning. You can tell straight away that he stakes his reputation on making sure that the vacancy on offer, the job prospects and the future team are really right for you and that this is the correct career move. He is a fair-minded, honest and enthusiastic consultant. He also openly points out potential pitfalls which is very valuable! I am totally happy in my new job.”

- Dominik Hennecke ( Expert Analytics & BI )

“Thomas was not the first agent who wanted to find me a job as an online marketing manager. But he was the first one who really looked at my profile and understood where I was coming from. He himself has experience in e-commerce so we were speaking the same language right from the start, and we built up a relationship of trust very quickly because of his dependable and professional manner. I would never have imagined then that I myself would be working as a recruitment consultant for him and with him…and with great pleasure. Thanks Thomas!”

- Anna Jacobi ( Marketing & Recruiting Consultant )

“Thomas Schaeben invested a great deal of time and supported me every step of the way. He himself has a background in e-commerce and so we were speaking the same language when it came to discussing the issues at stake in my case. I also felt well informed at all times and prepared for what awaited me in professional and cultural terms. And we are still in contact even after the successful completion of the process. Thomas is a great sparring partner with valuable insights and the right contacts in the expert networks. Yeah.”

- Michael Stolte-Dehn ( Chief Digital Officer )

“Thomas Schaeben introduced me to a new and very exciting job at a digital consultancy firm which hadn’t been on my agenda before. As soon as we met and started talking, I felt he understood me. He immediately realized what stimulates me and noticed whether the chemistry was right between me and the company. You notice straight away that he has worked in the industry and has seen a lot there and knows what matters.”

- Maximilian Demberg ( Consultant )

“Anna’s offer came at just the right time for me. She has such a positive attitude and the whole procedure was very professional so it felt like I was in good hands throughout the process. It took less than four weeks from the first email to the signing of the contract. In the end I got the job I wanted – and would recommend Anna to any job-seeker as a trusted adviser.”

- Sebastian Schlack ( Head of Content Creation )

“The entire process was very transparent and Olli kept me informed about the progress of the application without being asked. He also stood up for me at K-Lifestyle and was always ready to listen to my questions. I also loved his relaxed and very friendly manner and I always had the feeling that we were communicating as equals and working towards the same goal. Olli helped me with everything until the very end and guided me with moral and practical support. I thought the service was amazing and I would go back to him any time I needed to.”
