Global Project Manager - Launch

Job description

Managing projects is what you do best. You have a strong understanding of scaling business processes, and you like to manage end-to-end projects covering all company business areas from preparation to implementation. As a Global Project Manager - Launch, your key focus is to expand the success story of felyx in new cities and countries in the most effective and efficient way. We’re looking for that person who is a king/queen in (cross-cultural) communication, takes initiative, and knows how to motivate people. Furthermore, you like to work in a fast-paced environment, get a kick out of hitting ambitious milestones and while you are a great team player, you also don’t mind dealing with a lot of responsibility independently. Oh, and bonus points if you’re the type that rolls up their sleeves and goes straight to business ;)

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!

Here’s the challenge

As Global Project Manager - Launch at felyx you’ll work together with the full HQ and local team to work on effectively & efficiently expanding felyx’ footprint across Europe. Your role can be divided into three sub-streams:

1. Launch preparations: You will be responsible for setting up the full felyx operations in a new city. This means setting up all business necessities such as the operations processes, fully equipped locations, applying for local subsidies, local partner & supplier management, sourcing of products, services & people and determining the best felyx service area. At a later stage in the project, you’re responsible of the full deployment of the mopeds into the new city. You will be working together with the new local team on these topics and continuously solve problems when things don’t go as planned.

2. Project & internal/external stakeholder management: Not only are you felyx’ first local ambassador in this new city, but you also make sure the colleagues at HQ are aligned with the project planning. You continuously manage internal and external stakeholders to ensure project deadlines are met in the most effective and efficient manner. You know how to activate people, create a good working atmosphere and you absolutely love reaching ambitious goals together.

3. Blueprinting and improving launch processes: Together with the rest of the Global Launch team you will constantly analyse opportunities to improve our launch processes and blueprints. You will actively record learnings, suggest strategic improvements and implement solutions, so we can bring down our time-to-market with every launch.

And, not important to forget, is that we encourage you to grow with the company and within your role, so who knows what role you could have in a year or so, 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:

  • Have 4-6 years of (start-up) experience in project/program management and operations
  • Are a natural leader, experienced in team management
  • Have a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree, preferably in Supply Chain or Business Administration
  • Are hands-on and experienced working with cross-cultural teams
  • Have solid capabilities to set concrete processes and execution plans in motion
  • Be truth-seeking with data - translating complex data into a simple solution with your analytical mindset
  • Are highly organized and have excellent communication skills
  • Speaks multiple languages of which at least one is French, Spanish or Italian
  • While your base is in Amsterdam, you do not mind being positioned abroad for longer periods of time

Bonus points if you:

  • Are excited about sustainability and urban mobility services
  • Are a felyx user!

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!
  • 200 free felyx minutes per month
  • We want to invest in your future: a good pension plan is therefore in place (1/3 employee, 2/3 employer)
  • We offer 6 weeks of paternity leave with 100% salary for all (upcoming) dads
  • We take your development seriously and encourage you to grow with the company and within your role
  • On-site lunch

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.


We are very proud of the fact that we have been named by LinkedIn as a top start-up to work at for the second time in a row, together with many other prestigious awards we’ve received since our start in 2017. We are operational in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Groningen, Haarlem, Eindhoven, Den Bosch, Brussels, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, and Berlin and will be launching many more (European) cities in 2022. We have a strong focus on scaling up internationally.
