Launch Manager Germany (f/m/d)

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 afraid to take responsibility? We have just the role for you. As we are facing a hyper-growth in Germany these coming years, we are looking for a Launch Manager to ensure felyx’s success in our new German market. 
 


About felyx
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 and engineers - and looking to grow as we scale the business throughout Europe. Felyx is one of the few micro-mobility players in the world that is EBITDA positive on group level with a fleet of c3.000 e-mopeds. We are a young company with more than a hundred employees, working in the operations and at the head office in Amsterdam. You can describe us as passionate, ambitious, entrepreneurial, and transparent. Do you share our DNA? Great! Join our ride!


 

Here’s the challenge 

Expanding the success story of felyx! An exciting challenge where you will be responsible for the localization of our product. Building and expanding our service in new cities which includes country/city management, business development, marketing, operations and team management, just to name a few. Being the one in charge, you will decide on what resources you’ll need to act on all your great ideas. 

 

What you’ll be doing 

You’ll be the driver of expansion in Germany, so buckle up, and be the driver of your own and felyx’s success. You’ll have full responsibility & the necessary resources to make new successful launches in Germany a reality and you will closely work together with the General Manager Germany as well as our Manager Global Launch, Nicky Rietveld-Bresser. So, when arriving in a new city, what can you expect? You will: 

  • Be the local figurehead of felyx during the city set-up for customers and partners 
  • Monetize, develop and improve expansion blueprints for a successful roll-out in German cities 
  • Shape local partnerships 
  • Identify key opportunities through market and field research 
  • Tailor the go-to-market marketing plan  
  • Minimize our launch time-to-market by designing and leading the operational warehouse process & local team to ensure the efficient preparations of our e-scooters 

Requirements

We truly get excited if you 

  • Consider yourself a real entrepreneur (creative problem solver, analytic, dedicated, motivated, self-starter) 
  • Are a little more senior, so you can manage different cities at the same time to relieve the General Manager 
  • Are a natural project manager, always keeping overview & quickly distinguishing between high and lower priority tasks  
  • Possess 2-4 years of start-up or operational experience  
  • See yourself as a flexible person as you may live on and off in the city that you are launching 
  • Are hands-on, goal oriented, independent and structured 
  • Have excellent communication skills in German and English 
  • It is a plus if you have a Bachelor or Master degree in Supply Chain Management, Business Administration or Economics 


What do we offer 

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. 
 

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 and Brussels and will be launching many more (European) cities in 2021. We have a strong focus on scaling up internationally.
  • The opportunity to grow with us and to conquer Europe in the coming year 
  • The trust of the organization to make Germany a great success in your way! 
  • Flexibility to make sure your work/life is in balance
