Our offer

  • Your very own VanMoof bike 
  • Brand new MacBook, screens and software tools as you require
  • Insider experience in a rapidly-growing international company.
  • A space for you to grow your entrepreneurial and digital skills
  • A relaxed, informal office in the middle of Amsterdam
  • Healthy lunches, special snacks, tasty coffee (and lots of tea)
  • BBQs, boat rides, bootcamp in the park, morning yoga, and other shenanigans our team may or may not get up to...

Working hours 

  • 40 hours per week, Monday to Friday. But we always go the extra mile when it's needed.

Now, the touchy-feely ones:

We want someone to change the world with us.
We believe that bikes make cities more liveable and humans happier. You'll join us in our mission to get a LOT more people riding bikes... and go that extra mile to make it happen.

You’ll need to be as stubbornly focused as we are.
We do more with less. But everything we do should be utterly on-brand, engaging, and effective. It’ll be your job to make that happen.

And you'll have to be damn inventive.
We don't want someone who can tick the boxes, we're looking for someone who can solve problems of all sizes, lean into the chaos, and help us get better every day. We're also growing like crazy, so you'll need the patience of a saint and the persistence of an ultramarathon runner (sometimes).

'Nuff said. Do you want to roll your sleeves up and get your hands dirty in all the making, building, problem-solving and growing we'll be doing in 2018? Click the yellow button below and let's get this party started!
