Want to set up our sustainable web shop in Germany and become the country lead of our 7th location? Can you make it a success in terms of sustainable impact and revenue?

Our mission is to offer a zero-waste alternative for paper and contribute to more biodiversity. The more people choose our seed paper cards, the more flowers and the better for the bees and butterflies. We want to bloom in Germany as well and are looking for someone to set up and lead the German location and grow it to a 7-figure revenue. Join our young and ambitious team either remote or at our very own office jungle in Schijndel, the Netherlands.  

What does your day look like?  

You start with a daily check-in with the concept manager to discuss the direction and priorities of the day. In the morning, you process a couple of orders that came in last evening, check the files and prepare them for production. You answer customer e-mails and learn that customers are missing an impressum on the website, so you plan to add it. You think we should show reviews more prominently along the customer journey, so you plan to discuss this in the next daily check-in. 

In the afternoon, you discuss a couple of projects with the marketing manager. You work on improving the SEO and set up a proposal for Google Ads. You contacted an influencer last week and call her to discuss her social media post and promotion, so it perfectly fits our target audience. You also prepare some social media posts for the coming month. You found and contacted a potential new reseller and discuss a pricing agreement with them if they sell a 5-figure revenue this year.

  • You set up the German web shop.  
  • You make sure the German web shop is easy to find online.

  • You make sure orders are fulfilled and customers are 10/10 happy with the product, service, delivery time and quality.  
  • Together with the general manager and the marketing manager, you make sure the German web shop is reaching its goals.
