Launch Manager Western Europe

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!

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 which includes country 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 leader in your city, so buckle up, and be the driver of your own and felyx’s success. You’ll have full P&L responsibility and you will closely work together with our Head of Global Expansion, Luc van Emmerik. So, when arriving in a new city, what can you expect? You will:

  • Build and lead a local team, which will be your foundation on the ground

  • Identify key chances through market and field research

  • Tailor the go-to-market marketing plan

Don't forget, is that we encourage you to grow with the company and within your role (possibility to become Country Manager) as we are continually growing in our journey towards ‘world domination’. Just kidding, market leader in Europe will do (for now).


We truly get excited if you

  • Consider yourself a real entrepreneur (creative problem solver, analytic, dedicated, motivated, self-starter)

  • Are a bit senior,so you can manage different cities at the same time so you can relieve the Manager

  • Possess 2-4 years of start-up or operational experience 

  • See yourself as a flexible person as you will live on and off in the city that you are launching

  • Are hands-on, goal oriented, independent and structured

  • Have excellent communication skills in English and at least one other European language

  • It is an plus if you have a Bachelor or Master degree in Supply Chain Management, Business Administration or Economics

What do we offer

  • The opportunity to grow with us and to conquer Europe in the coming year. That says enough about your role right?
  • A good salary, lunch, laptop and travel expenses
  • Flexibility to make sure your work/life is in balance
  • A motivated team that wants to make Felyx big but also enjoy the Friday drinks!
  • The Freedom, responsibility and trust

Joining our ride is becoming part of the leading global platform in urban mobility.

Maybe also nice to know: we have a very strong, family-like team and great central location on the Herengracht!
