City Manager Munich

Job description

How would you feel about developing and establishing felyx as a strong micro-mobility player in Munich?

 

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. Besides, we offer a new and fun way around town! 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, marketers, engineers, and looking to grow as we scale the business throughout Europe. You can describe us as passionate, playful, hands-on, and entrepreneurial. Do you share our DNA? Great! Join our ride!


Here is the challenge

If you’ve spent time walking, cycling, or driving through any major city in the world you might have noticed that congestion and pollution are a growing problem for most of these cities. In fact, most of the major cities are facing an epidemic of congestion and pollution caused by rapid urbanization. With more and more citizens changing their cars for a more flexible way of transportation, we’re at the starting point of something big. 

 

What you will be doing

We’re looking for a City Manager Munich with a  passion for innovation and a great understanding of the changing micro-mobility landscape. This role stands on two main pillars:

  1. Structuring operations and developing the city from a commercial perspective
  2. Managing our performance and the P&L for Munich.

You ensure that felyx is successfully running its business, including alignment with all our stakeholders in the metropolitan area. You're 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 Munich, you further boost our business by developing local partnerships and making sure marketing campaigns are effectively executed. Coordination and clear communication across the team is therefore key.


But of course, this all has 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 you are responsible for the end result and in charge of leading the local team to ensure this. You will set and maintain the standards for a positive work culture and inspire teammates based on well-rounded team management skills.


And important not to forget: we encourage you to grow with the company and within your role, as we are continually on our journey towards ‘world domination’. Just kidding, market leader in Europe will do (for now).

Requirements

We truly get excited if you

  • Possess 5-7 years of working experience, growing and optimizing a team/business
  • Have experience developing and optimizing operational processes
  • Have an understanding of tech marketplaces (real-time) with a focus on supply and demand
  • Have proven P&L experience and work revenue-focused
  • Are a true people person and a motivating leader for the team who shows presence and involvement
  • Are entrepreneurial and have solid analytical skills (fluent in Excel) to stay on top of all factors impacting our performance
  • Have strong project management skills with a data-driven mindset
  • Are a great communicator with the ability to build and motivate teams, work together with diverse groups across countries, and a good understanding of external stakeholder management
  • Are fluent in German & English
  • Are based in Munich

Bonus points if you

  • Are experienced with SQL
  • Have experience in the micro-mobility sector


What's in it for me?

An ambitious team of entrepreneurial colleagues with a shared passion for our mission. You will work in a transparent, fast-growing and inspirational environment in which you are able to take the lead over your own career and will get challenged on a daily basis! And next to that:

  • 29 paid days off on a full-time basis: 28 on the roll and a day off on your birthday!
  • A fun and modern brand with a sustainable product that is exciting to market!
  • Deep insights into a fast-growing scale-up
  • Flexible work schedule, partly remote work possible (home office)
  • Annual personal development budget
  • 200 free felyx minutes per month #beatthestreets
  • Company Events + Annual company party (Sports challenges, travel trips and much more! )


Last but not least: fun, freedom and trust! We're not scared to work our butts off, but this is only possible once we all experience joy in the work that we do every day.


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.


We understand you might not tick all the boxes above. The truth is, we don't either. If you feel up for the ride, we encourage you to apply now!
