Meet team5pm

We are a data-driven content group. By bringing together the worlds of data and creativity, our creative smart asses make effective content for brands. On platforms like YouTube, TikTok and Instagram. We do this with our labels 5pm and Lijm Amsterdam.

From our offices in Amsterdam, Stockholm, Cape Town, Warsaw and Milano we bring different people, perspectives and talents together – united by the same mindset: data drives us to be different. We’re not talking about complex excel sheets or boring 0s and 1s. No, the human behavior kind of data. About target audiences. With a tooling mix, consisting of our own video technology called topictree, we know what the target group wants to see, when and where. This way we find the sweet spot for brands - where the audience is, and the competition isn’t (yet). We combine this with loads of creativity. This is how we make creative content that gets real results. Read all about team5pm, our (inter)national clients, and your amazing new colleagues in our Team Guide!

  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent practical experience
