Job Description

We're an innovative bike company with a rapidly expanding team of riders all over the world. You're an English and German-speaking problem-solver who'll be the voice of VanMoof to our riders that contact us via social media.

  • Stay current on social media trends and our VanMoof community and provide recommendations and approaches to improve our service levels.

  • Keep thinking along to keep our online FAQ updated with all the latest questions and answers (and provide feedback).
  • Be our customers' biggest advocate internally, constantly pushing us to be better.

What you'll bring

  • One to three years experience in some kind of customer-facing role. Bonus points if you have retail, technical, or cycle industry experience. Preference for a talent who has worked within social media support before.
  • Demonstrated awareness of social media trends/developments and how those can be implemented to improve VanMoof's community engagement/customer support.
  • Outstanding written and verbal communication skills with proven ability to write clear, concise, and accurate messages.

  • Native level German and near-native level English communication skills, both written and spoken – any other language is a major bonus! 
  • The flexibility to work evenings and weekends as required.
  • Buckets of confidence using digital and social media tools.
  • A can-do, give-me-a-problem-and-I'll-solve-it spirit.
  • Living in/or around Amsterdam.

What you'll get

  • 26 paid holidays for you to unwind
  • Your very own VanMoof bike (lend-lease)
