we are looking for people who want to bring Lou to life with us

we are creating Lou to create change

Lou&You is developing the first digital companion for people affected by gender-based violence. Lou offers users free, anonymous, personalised information, and support services close to their homes, as well as digital tools that facilitate their personal journey and legal steps. Our vision is to create a real and sustainable deterrent effect for (potential) perpetrators. 

the people
behind Lou

We currently are a team of nine, but soon to be 12 people based primarily in Berlin. We are working with over 80 experts, consultants, partner organisations and supporters to bring Lou to life by fall 2022. Somewhere between start-up and NGO, with enthusiasm, optimism and creativity. 

Lou needs people who are highly motivated... and ready for the sofa

Since we have only just been able to secure our basic funding, we only have the necessary funds for certain positions at the moment and no room to turn salaries up. This also means: we can't pay internships yet and we can't afford a fancy office either. To be precise: there is no office yet. We are trying to change both as quickly as possible, but the focus of attention always is to make the most of Lou for those affected. So if you're fine with home office and video calls for the time being, you might be team member material.

what you won't find at Lou&You

Working at Lou definitely ensures the infamous "steep learning curve", but certainly no weekend work or regular overtime. Due to the lack of an office, we also do not have ball pit – sorry! But one thing is for sure: every person who is part of our team can a help shape Lou, ask critical questions, contribute ideas, change processes, in short: become a part of Lou. 

 

This is especially important to us: in developing Lou, we are aware that we cannot speak or make decisions for people whose marginalisation we are not ourselves negatively affected by. Because Lou is meant to be a support for all those affected, we especially look forward to receive applications from Bi_PoC, queer and people with disabilities.
