City Manager Eindhoven

Job description

Always wanted to know how our felyx scooters magically recharge themselves? As City Manager Eindhoven you’ll get to know all the in’s and out’s of running your own business within a business. This is your chance to take ownership of the city of Eindhoven and help us make it an even bigger success. 


As urbanization is rising and the air quality is deteriorating, we feel the need to make our cities greener and healthier by offering a sustainable mobility solution. And being a fun way around town is, of course, a great bonus! At felyx, everybody within their own expertise is contributing to a cleaner city by making this swift door-to-door transportation the new status quo. We are working together as an ambitious team of entrepreneurs, operators and engineers, and looking to grow as we are scaling the business throughout Europe. Do you share our DNA; self-starting, open, social and driven? Great! Join our ride!


What you’ll be doing 

The main focus of this role is to manage our everyday performance and the P&L for the Eindhoven region. You make sure that felyx is successfully running its business locally, including alignment with all of our stakeholders in the metropolitan area. You are constantly balancing running day-to-day operations with taking a step back to think strategically about initiatives that have the potential to improve our performance. As our figurehead for Eindhoven, you further boost our business by developing local partnerships and making sure marketing campaigns are effectively executed. Coordination and clear cross-team communication are therefore key.

But of course, all of this is for no reason if we don’t deliver a seamless experience to our users when going for a ride. Keeping our fleet of scooters in great shape is not a one-man/woman job, but at the end of the day, you are responsible for the results and in charge of leading the local team. So, you will set and maintain the standards for a positive culture and inspire teammates based on well-rounded people management skills.


Sounds appealing? Please also know that we encourage you to grow with the company and within your role (so who knows what you could be doing in 1 or 2 years) as we are continually growing in our journey towards ‘world domination’. Just kidding, market leader in Europe will do (for now).


We truly get excited if you 

  • Possess 3-5 years of experience, preferably in either a consulting or start-up environment
  • Have experience developing and optimizing operational processes
  • Are entrepreneurial and you have solid analytical skills to stay on top of all factors impacting our P&L performance
  • Have strong project management skills with a data-driven mindset
  • Are a clear communicator with the ability to engage all our stakeholders


Bonus points if you 

  • Have previous experience with P&L responsibility
  • Are a natural leader with experience in team management
  • Are passionate about Eindhoven and operating an urban mobility service
  • Speak fluent Dutch and English


Joining our ride is becoming part of the leading global platform in urban mobility. Having a direct impact on the business with a high degree of independence, will give you a very steep learning curve. Maybe also nice to know: we have a very strong, family-like team!

At felyx we believe that the best workplace is one that represents the world we live in today. This means we believe that diversity in the broadest sense of the word connects us and drives us forward as a company.

We believe that diversity goes hand in hand with different perspectives. It is these different perspectives that can help us become better and more innovative in finding solutions for our customers.

And because we believe this can be achieved, we are looking for colleagues who are intrinsically motivated and bring the right experience. Gender, age, sexual orientation or origin will never be a factor and will never become one.
