City Manager Rotterdam

Job description

Hi there, Jack/Jill (of all trades)! Always wanted to know how our felyx scooters magically recharge themselves? As City Manager Rotterdam 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 over the city of Rotterdam 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 scale 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 performance and the P&L for the Rotterdam region. You ensure that felyx is successfully running its business, including alignment with 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 Rotterdam, you further boost our business by developing local partnerships and working with Marketing execute campaigns effectively.. Coordination and clear communication cross team is therefore key. You will work from our Amsterdam Headquarters, while spending 1-2 days a week in Rotterdam.  

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. So you’ll set and maintain the standards for a positive work culture and inspire teammates based on well-rounded team management skills.

 

Sounds interesting? 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).

Requirements

We truly get excited if you 

  • Possess 2-5 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
  • Speak fluent Dutch and English

 

Bonus points if you 

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

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 that is ready to rock Rotterdam alongside you!
