Bike Doctor / Quality Specialist

Are you the mechanically minded bike technician who'll take our warehouse operations to the next level?

FULL-TIME · UTRECHT

VanMoof is looking for a specialized bike mechanic to bring their technical know-how and greasy-fingered ingenuity to our Utrecht warehouse. You’ll need to be as completely hands-on as you are knowledgeable about all things VanMoof, ready to dive in and optimize our operations, repairing, servicing, and quality checking bikes and components on the fly.

VanMoof isn’t like other bike companies, because our bikes aren’t like other bikes. We couldn’t find the parts we needed to build the perfect bike, so we designed and manufactured them ourselves.

We’re looking for a Bike Doctor that’s as forward-thinking and imaginative as we are, someone who can put the time in and really learn the ins and outs of our award-winning bicycles.

This means you won’t ‘just’ be a bike mechanic, you’ll need to be a walking, wrench-wielding encyclopedia of VanMoof’s past, present, and future, with an in-depth knowledge of our parts and processes. You’ll need the confidence to flag up issues wherever you find them, and the ingenuity to find the solutions we haven’t even thought of yet. Aside from that, you’ll be responsible for keeping our quality control facilities and warehouse running smoothly, so it’s essential that you can keep a cool head under pressure and solve problems as they arise.

Most of all you’ll need to love all aspects of biking, and bring that enthusiasm to everything you do.

Background and skills

  • A recognized bike technician qualification
  • Real-world experience working as a bike technician/mechanic
  • Extensive knowledge of bicycles and bicycle repairs
  • Experience of warehouse operations and logistics

Personality

  • You’ve got good communication skills, both spoken and written (Dutch and English)
  • You work well under pressure, with a knack for turning problems into an opportunity to improve
  • You’ve got a keen eye for detail, and the tenacity to maintain the sky-high standards VanMoof is known for worldwide.


Our offer

  • Your very own VanMoof bike
  • All the tools and tech you need to do the best job possible
  • Insider experience in a rapidly-growing international company
  • 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 needed.

Now, the touchy-feely ones:

We want someone to change the world with us.

We're convinced 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 need to be damn inventive.

We don't just 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 the making, building, problem-solving and growing we'll be doing in 2018? Click the little yellow button below and let's get this party started!
