San Francisco Assistant Store Manager

Are you the retail star who'll help us conquer the West Coast?


VanMoof is looking for a go-getting Assistant Store Manager, who can help share our vision with the West Coast. Working closely with the Brand Store Manager, you’ll ensure our customers get an incredible in-store experience. Think you’ve got what it takes? This is your chance to join our international team of riders, tinkerers, and troublemakers.

As Assistant Store Manager, you’ll be jumping in at the deep end, joining our growing San Franciscan team to drive sales and ensure complete customer satisfaction. Our brand stores are more than just bike shops, so you’ll need to offer expert advice to new and returning customers, manage Bike Doctor repairs, train colleagues, and make sure everything looks and feels 100% on-brand.

Your key responsibilities:

  • Co-manage our San Francisco team to make sure we beat out sales targets and (over) deliver on our customer promises
  • Become a walking encyclopaedia of all things VanMoof, so you can find the perfect bike for every customer
  • Take charge of the look and feel of our new store
  • Grow the VanMoof brand in San Francisco and beyond, with a focus on custom test rides, collaborations, events, and more
  • Manage store inventories, so everyone has everything they need to do the best job possible
  • Anticipate and troubleshoot in-store issues before they arise

The Assistant Manager we're looking for has:

  • At least two years of experience working as assistant manager in a retail environment
  • Experience with people management and retail operations
  • World-class communication skills
  • Available to travel (mostly domestic, with the potential for international)

Our offer:

  • Cell phone, laptop, and all the tools you need to do the best job possible
  • Your own VanMoof bike
  • Insider experience in a rapidly-growing international company
  • An informal working environment in The Mission District

Now, the touchy-feely stuff:

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!
