We are hiring:
Junior Project Manager
Company | about us
At Easywalker we develop strollers and buggies that stimulate parents to go out and explore the world with their child. Our company entered the market in 1989 with the introduction of a radical new stroller concept: the first three-wheel stroller in Europe. That challenger mentality is still very much alive and we pride ourselves in making products that are easy to use, cleverly designed and highly comfortable for parents and kids. We are constantly looking for new ways to make parents “walk” more “easy”. Because we believe that happiness lies in connecting with the world and the people around you.
Still based in Amsterdam, we now service 45 countries by offering products under three separate brands: Easywalker, MINI by Easywalker and Disney by Easywalker. All clearly positioned propositions with their own product assortment and marketing approach.
We are a closely connected and dedicated team. Everyone ‘eats and dreams’ our branded strategy and works from a strong entrepreneurial spirit. We want to continue to challenge, we want to continue to innovate, we want to continue to grow.
We have a fantastic opportunity for a Junior Project Manager in our product development team.
You will work on product development projects starting from conceptualization up until the point the product goes into production. During the development phase you work closely together with engineers and designers to create easy-to-use and beautiful products. You are in daily contact with our suppliers in China. You take responsibility for perfect execution of the projects.
You are a strong and structured personality, with an entrepreneurial spirit. You love products (esthetically and technically). You have an operational mind-set and a good understanding of the essence of the project at hand. At the same time, you have a great eye for detail, like to challenge ideas and can develop a great understanding of the brands. You work like a spider in the web, with all the internal and external stakeholders.
