Evaneos | DACH & NL Country Manager

Evaneos is hiring!


Better Trips for travelers. Better Trips for the World 🌍

Since Evaneos was founded in 2009, we’ve been building a greener, fairer future for travel. By connecting travelers with the world’s best local experts, we provide trips that are better for them and better for the places they visit. For us, it’s all about quality and impact. That means fighting mass tourism and impersonal experiences at the expense of local communities and the environment. Instead, we offer tailor-made trips, lovingly crafted by those passionate about sharing and protecting the destinations they call home.

Thanks to our network of more than 600 local agencies in more than 160 destinations, we’ve helped more than 600,000 travelers plan extraordinary trips worldwide. The adventure doesn’t stop here. We invest a percentage of every trip we sell in our Better Trips Fund and have committed to spend at least 3 million € by 2025 on projects that reduce the negative impacts of travel and drive positive change within our industry. Think: creating new opportunities for woman-owned businesses, guiding small businesses through sustainability training and certification, and much more.

Our values are just as important within Evaneos. Our strength is in our diversity made of a multitude of languages, backgrounds, and experiences. We believe in building the best teams by creating an environment where everyone can be authentic, trust each other, and thrive.

We hope you’ll join us on our mission!
