  • An extraordinarily good work environment, with freshly made snacks, monthly drinks, legendary Coolblue parties, awesome team activities, and an informal, playful department.
  • Retirement plan.
  • A picture-perfect office at a great location. You could crawl to work from Rotterdam Central Station. Though we recommend just walking for 2 minutes.

  • Challenging work to really immerse yourself in, so you sometimes forget you’re even working.

How does Coolblue adhere to the COVID-19 measures?

We adhere to the recommendations and guidelines of RIVM and the government, of course. Working at the office makes us happy, that’s why we are working partly from home and partly from the office. The interviews for your application will also take place partly via video calls and partly in the office. On your first day we meet each other at the office. So we can drink a cup of coffee and get to know each other better.

Can I keep developing myself?

Coolblue University: learning at Coolblue, in a different way. – With over 30 training courses in our own Coolblue University, you can get a little bit better every day. At Coolblue, we go back to school sometimes. But not by sitting there quietly and just listening. The training courses aren’t boring, but interactive. You have to do exercises and have discussions with others. At the Coolblue University, we choose what we want to learn, so we can continue to develop en become real experts. For example, a Delivery Driver needs different training courses than a Customer Service Employe and a starter needs different courses than a manager.
