This isn't a conventional car company. We're a new global brand that focuses on the need of the connected generation, sustainability, and a hassle-free customer experience.

Gear Operations Manager

Lynk & Co is launching across Europe and we’re opening physical locations (we call them Clubs) in major cities, a tour of pop-ups as well as an online store. We’re not another car company, and this won’t be another car showroom.

Gear is a staple of the Lynk & Co experience, so what exactly do we mean? In short: it’s pretty much everything we sell that isn’t cars or services. We’re talking much more than merch — there will be no novelty mugs or badly branded t-shirts here. We want to give our members a unique retail experience of sustainable items with an interesting story, whether that’s fashion, furniture, books, or something we haven’t yet thought of. Our goal is to curate a collection of products from local and international creatives. Our Gear Operations Manager will be key in making this happen and your objective is to make sure we can sell our Gear portfolio across markets and touchpoints and that we do it in the best possible way.

The role sits within our Commercial Operations department and will report to the Gear Director. The position is based in Gothenburg but might require some travel, mainly within Europe.

What you'll do

  • Manage a pan-European lifestyle product portfolio and support our Gear Product Managers and clubs to bring it on the shelves
  • Create dashboards and reports to monitor sales performance and be able to plan, forecast and optimize product mix cross markets and retail points
  • Follow up on budgets and support with replenishment to ensure products are purchased at the right time, to the relevant business set up
  • Maintain established partner relationships and re-negotiate prices over time
  • Plan and administrate phasing in and out of partners and products
  • Further develop and secure supply chain setup and operational requirements (e.g. distribution, storage, and stock management)

What you should be

  • Educated and experienced. You have some kind of degree, but we care less about exactly what. You have at least 3-5 years of retail/merchandise experience in product or operations management, preferably within lifestyle.
  • Analytical and a problem solver. I.e. you see what needs to be done and you do it.
  • Organized and good at structuring your work, even when things get busy. We move fast so you’ll need to enjoy that type of environment.
  • Able to manage and nurture positive relationships with a network of collaboration partners as well as internal stakeholders.
  • Fluent in English. Additional European languages are a plus.
  • More than familiar with Excel.

What we offer

Sure, we have all the basics in place like pension and insurances, wellness allowance, and flexibility in where and when you work. But that's not the reason you choose us… You want to work with us because you will:

  • Be part of a global and diverse team, with teammates from over 26 countries and a 50/50 gender split
  • Be part of a fun work culture with high team spirit. People really enjoy their teams and get along well with their teammates. There’s a running club if you’re into that sort of thing, Mario Kart tournaments, lunch dance sessions, after work get together etc.
  • Be part of creating something new that has never been done before. The pace is fast and it is never boring!
  • Get the best of both worlds: a start-up atmosphere with the support of an established organization
  • Make a difference. We're a lean team with a flat hierarchy, so every contribution has a direct impact

Working for Lynk & Co

We're not into strict hierarchy, but we do like collaboration, creativity, and people who challenge norms. We've cultivated a culture of personal development and role growth. If you're an original thinker who values being open, personal, and challenging, then you'll fit right in. In general, we think that imagination is just as important as expertise, and instinct can be as valuable as experience.

Sounds good? Well, then we want to hear from you.

Why work with us?

We want you to love what you do. That's why we work to foster a creative and collaborative culture. These are the values that guide us.

  • Be open.

    We're curious and always challenging the norm. We like to find our own path through life—especially when that means carving out a new one.

  • Do it! Together!

    We have the power to make things happen and we look for solutions together. You’re never alone at Lynk & Co.

  • Create wow.

    We do the unexpected. We like pushing buttons and pushing boundaries. No one's doing what we're doing, and that means we have something to prove.

  • Be sustainability.

    We look at everything through a sustainability lens. It's not because we want to look good, but because we believe in taking responsibility for the world and society we live in.

Your impact.

At Lynk & Co, you have the opportunity to shape the company's future, your future, and the future of mobility. Yeah, we know it's a bold promise, but we think it holds up.
