At Zoku we love good coffee, jelly beans, Toby, Leroy and Alfred (our fish), karaoke, birthdays (especially the cake!), working hard but playing harder, glitter, jam session evenings, plants, beautiful sunsets, IJWit, (weird) jokes and hugs instead of handshakes.
There are 5 company values that truly define Zoku’s culture. These values are at the heart of Zoku, and everything we do is based on them. Curious to learn more about them and see if they fit your personality? Check them out below.
From welcoming residents to Zoku to making the best coffee. From managing their reservations to…… anything else that might come up. We’re entrepreneurial spirits who aim to provide the best possible service in the broadest sense. There are no separate teams at Zoku. It’s a cliché, but it’s true: we aim for that family feeling working together, creating the best Zoku experience for our residents, members, visitors and each other. We love Zoku outings, sing karaoke, go Apenkooien or vrimibo’en. (we’ll explain those last two when you’re here.)
We believe friends, coworkers and residents are the same thing
Work as a team, treat residents, colleagues and partners as family, stick to your promises, take time to reflect, take good care of yourself and care for the environment.
BE THE BUS DRIVER
Don’t wait for an opportunity, create it
Take ownership and responsibility for your own actions and development, let Zoku empower you, come with solutions instead of problems, be proactive and lead by example.
ABOVE AND BEYOND
Dreams don’t work unless you do
Never settle for OK, settle for amazing. Create sharable stories and get the most out of every opportunity, work smarter, meet targets, stay ahead of the game by maintaining your flexibility and push the world forward together.
SUNNY SIDE UP
Always look at the bright side
Work with energy, positivity, optimism and a lot of humor (don’t take yourself too serious at times) and deal with setbacks by seeing them as learning opportunities.
Great things never come from comfort zones
Continuously re-invent yourself, grow, develop and learn, give feedback, be open to change, have the courage to challenge the status quo and think of smart solutions.
We don’t believe in the usual layered structure of “executive” this and “supervisor-assistant-VP-of-everything” that. We believe there is one team, with one mission: to create the most desired home base for travelling professionals.
Zoku is an entirely new hotel concept run by a team of passionate, happy gang of kindred spirits. Zoku isn’t a conventional hotel, nor do we intend to be one. Just a few examples…
A Zoku: [Zo-qoo] ~ noun: a person working at Zoku, who loves his/her job with a passion, wants to make a difference in this world, doesn’t take him/herself too serious and loves people plus making them happy.
When you work at Zoku, it goes without saying that you get your monthly pay check and the working equipment you need to be able to perfectly do your job. Nevertheless, we like to say that working at Zoku also goes hand in hand extra ‘cherries on the cake’. We offer an exciting job in a dynamic start-up environment, the possibility to be actively involved in the Zoku community events & activities, great discounts with our partners, cool work outfits for operations (no more looking like a log!) and many more awesome benefits.
At Zoku we provide healthy food for your body, regular feedback for your mind and a warm welcome in the family. We take everyone with in making sure the planet is not forgotten – as we are aware of the fact that there is no planet B.
BE THE BUS DRIVER
At Zoku all positions have several roles and responsibilities, and nothing is set in stone. Everyone actively takes on new responsibilities and challenges. Everyone’s smart observations and input is most welcome, we learn together.
ABOVE AND BEYOND
We want to play a role in helping you realize your dreams, through the connections you make with our residents, personal and professional development possibilities, discovering yourself and in the future exchanges with other Zokus globally.
SUNNY SIDE UP
We know when its time for fun stuff, we love celebrating success and having drinks together. Everyone at Zoku is enrolled in our reward program as we like to share Zoku’s success with everyone.
We offer both learning & development opportunities to get better at work and better in life and we strive to promote from within for current and future hotels. You can see us as a sort of playground where you can try new things and experiment at all times.
A place you can call a second home, even on your first visit.
So much more than a long stay hotel. It’s a neighborhood.
Where the neighbors borrow more than a cup of sugar.
They share ideas and ambitions.
They mix the local lowdown with the global highlights.
Where the word on the street keeps you streets ahead.
For this is a ‘good company’ company where everyone can bring their dreams to the table.
Where those busy connecting the world can catch up with each other and the scene surrounding them.
Smart and uncompromising, Zoku is a hive of smart lofts and friendly spaces, designed so you can stay connected, well rested and throw yourself into your work, your play and our city.
This is a place that is furnished to fit, not to split.
Encouraging each other to live, not exist.
To dream, not sleep.
To smarten up, rather than dumb down.
To go at it together, rather than alone.
Together we can work hard, play strong and rest easy.
Whilst we blur borders, combine cultures and live our dreams.
