In the last few years, our business has gone from an idea of - let’s see what we can do if we focus on quality and co-creation with our happy customers - to a rather big business reaching over the snowy tops of the world with our two brands Dope and MONTEC. Still with the same ethos, but with a bigger business comes more complexity. We do love challenges at Ridestore, but we also realize when we need additional expertise. In this case, we’re looking for a highly skilled person with a passion for orchestrating cross-funtional projects to level up the operations side at Ridestore. We want you to bring all your experiences, dive into our context, throw out some of your old truths, and, together with the teams, create magic.
What's the role about?
In the short term, your main focus will be to onboard and get to know Ridestore with all its ins and outs. Building relations, especially with your teammates from every part of the organization. This won't be hard, as the Ridestore crew is welcoming.
In the long term, you will take charge of diverse projects, from start to finish, that span all facets of our company and drive organizational and financial success. We strive to create initiatives that add value to our customer experience, in terms of for example availability or sustainability. In this role you will work closely to our CEO and support all the team leads in strategic projects that will optimize our overall performance in the long run. You are the person who puts the puzzle pieces together without the luxury of a predetermined picture on the box.
Areas we are sure you will cover:
Cross-Functional Project Management: lead and coordinate projects involving various departments, ensuring seamless collaboration and progress.
Problem-solving: Navigate complex challenges and uncertainties, diving into details of the projects, prioritizing and draw the bigger picture.
Effective communication: We live in an asynchronized world where your communication skills, your strategic mindset and hands-on approach will inspire others.
Sounds interesting? Here's what we're looking for:
We're looking for someone with a humble, natural leadership style with a genuine passion for driving operational projects. Strong written communication skills are essential in our ways of working as most of our team is remote, as is the ability to build relationships in our hybrid world. Our ideal candidate is goal and detail-oriented and a true problem solver who has strategic thinking combined with analytical skills. In addition, being a hands-on doer who’s resilient and flexible will help you thrive in this role. Lastly, we really value self-managed individuals with a growth mindset, so you need to be ready to drive your own work and see where this learning and changing journey can take us.
To handle this role, we need you to have the following:
- Project management experience, preferably in a dynamic and evolving environment.
- Experience from a project manager role, business controller or similar
- Ability to communicate complex issues clearly and concisely
- Strong analytical and problem-solving abilities
- Track record of successful cross-functional collaboration
- Understanding of success metrics in an e-commerce business
And to succeed at Ridestore, it’s important that you:
- Have a business sense and can be strategic yet operational in a sweet mix.
- Are logical, persistent, and thorough in your work.
- Are self-managed with a growth mindset - you see learning as lifelong.
- Are humble to the bones; we want to work with smart people who are also great colleagues.
- Know how to laugh and have fun.
Where you'll do it?
Several team leads and our CEO, whom you will collaborate closely with, are located in our great office in Gothenburg. So, in this role, we prefer that you are based around Gothenburg or have the flexibility to spend significant time here, especially in the beginning. In general, we offer you big flexibility in how and when you get your work done, as our way of working is digital.
Join us! We'll offer you a passionate and somewhat snowy environment where you can have a huge impact on the Ridestore journey with your work.
