Always felt like you were destined for greater things? Are you burning with a strong desire to explore the world? What if we’d tell you that you could grow as a young professional in the field of video marketing and YouTube, while discovering the country of South Africa?

Come join our full-service video agency for a year full of adventure and new experiences in South Africa.

So who are we?

We are Team5pm! A full-service video agency and strategic video partner. We bring strategy, content and distribution together, fuelled by data and driven by results. We are born and raised on YouTube. With it, we were able to develop a unique data-driven approach that drives results every time. We are now translating this approach successfully to other platforms, such as TikTok and Instagram. Our belief is that rather than constantly disrupting what people like to watch, we should strive to create content that people actually like to watch on platforms they actually use. How? Data helps us to do this! With it, we help our clients to get a deep understanding of what their audience likes to see. Together, we create awesome videos that spark change. We do this internationally - our offices are located in The Netherlands, Sweden and South Africa.
