Senior Digital Marketer (Ghent)

The Reference is a leading full service digital agency. A multi-disciplinary team of more than 170 experts puts the creed "it’s more than digital, it’s your business" into practice every day. We do this by using the different digital channels in an integrated way to serve the different customer touchpoints with a single goal: create added value for our customers. 

For our digital marketing team, we are looking for an experienced digital marketer.

We believe that attitude has priority over aptitude (a big word for knowledge). For us, an innovative mindset is just as important as your knowledge. 


Firstly, you have the tendency to translate your job to your everyday life. Subconsciously, but you find it hard to suppress.

You don't talk about "curfew" but about adapted advertisement planning. 

You would consider a bubble of 2 people an ideal frequency and you like the rotation system to avoid saturation. 

You hate it when the cashier at the supermarket checkout doesn't spontaneously ask for your customer loyalty card. "Have you ever thought about the data quality, madam?"

You get mad when someone still talks about AdWords instead of Google Ads. 

The fact that love is not for sale certainly applies to you: only high-quality friendships win a place in your heart. The absolute top position is reserved for that person who is an extension of yourself. On Tinder, you only look for exact matches. Because they are cheaper.

On car journeys, you look for funny number plates. Your heart sings when you spot a car with 1-SEO-301 and you crazily take a photo of it. You can then spend a whole afternoon laughing about it with your colleagues.

You have knowledge of at least one of the following marketing domains: Google Ads campaigns, social advertising campaigns, email marketing or SEO.

In the pub, you have the last word. You speak English with our customers at a professional level. A good command of French is also a bonus.

We are definitely looking for someone different, that's for sure.


You will be one of the key figures in a growing team of around twenty digital marketing consultants, each with their own specific knowledge, experience and interests. You take less experienced colleagues under your wing.

You have several years of relevant experience in online marketing and you love doing buzzword bingo with your customers. You enjoy talking about omnichannel marketing, SEO strategies, online advertising, customer lifetime values, conversion rate optimisation, marketing automation, and so on. 

You sit down with the customer to identify the key objectives and then develop campaigns to meet their needs.

You work closely with the other teams (designers, developers, mobile experts, strategists, but often also our colleagues in Brussels, Antwerp, Amsterdam, Rotterdam or Geneva). 


We are one of Belgium’s most successful digital agencies, part of the international Emakina Group, but with its own DNA.

You will be one of the key figures in a young and dynamic team where there is plenty of scope for personal initiative.

We give you the opportunity to develop your talent further. We provide an L&D budget and the necessary time to hone your skills and expertise.

Your welfare is important to us. We ensure a healthy work-life balance and the necessary relaxation, at our company parties and legendary boardgame nights, for example.

Work from our agile offices (Ghent & Antwerp) or from home (60%). Whatever you want!

Last but not least… an attractive salary with lots of fringe benefits, such as a company car, meal vouchers, group and health insurance, bike lease, extra days leave, …
