Launch Manager

Job description

Hi there, go-getter! Are you bored of sitting behind a desk 40 hours a week? Do you seek freedom and aren’t you afraid to take responsibility? We have just the role for you. As we are facing a hyper-growth in the Netherlands and the rest of Europe these coming years, we are looking for Launch Managers to ensure felyx’s success in our new Western European markets. We are a young and driven scale-up, that is making swift door-to-door transportation the new status quo with our innovative and sustainable tech platform and shared e-scooters. 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!

 

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, our objective is to create cleaner cities by making this swift door-to-door transportation

the new status quo. We are working together as an ambitious team of entrepreneurs, operators,

marketers and engineers, and are looking to grow as we scale the business throughout Europe. Do you

Here’s the challenge

Expanding the success story of felyx! An exciting challenge where you will be completely responsible for the localization of our product. Building and expanding our service in new cities (within The Netherlands and abroad). 

 

Your job has a strong alternation between office work and working in the field. For example, the weeks / months prior to launch are mainly office work. Drawing up analyzes, looking for partners and drawing up the script. When the scooters arrive, you are responsible from the beginning to the end for the launch of a city, or even country. It is a role where you have to be handy with Excel and overseeing a P&L, on the other hand, there are weeks where you'll manage the team that is assembling of the scooters in the warehouse. In this role you are part of the Global Operations, the Expansion team and you will report directly to our Senior Launch Manager Nicky Bresser.
