These analyses and reports will be used as basis for important decision making by key stakeholders in the business, including the senior management team and shareholders

You'll need to analyze and track market trends and developments, to make sure VanMoof stays ahead of the competition at all times.Most importantly, you'll help take VanMoof to the world stage, delivering targets and forecasts on market and channel levels, and using internal and external data to boost our international profile.

  • You work hard and always ensure your work is of the highest quality
  • You deal with criticism positively, giving and receiving it with a smile

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).
