Pieter Pot is looking for an ambitious Special Operations Associate to work cross-functionally on high impact projects to ensure that Pieter Pot can succeed and thrive with any opportunity to realize our mission of making waste free shopping available for all.

Full-time · Rotterdam

Who is Pieter?

Pieter Pot is a fast growing scale-up with a sustainable mission to make waste free shopping available for all. We started this business in 2019 to end the enormous amounts of waste in the supply chain behind our daily needs of groceries. 

Now, after closing a successful series A investment round this November, we are looking to expand the business to other countries in North-West Europe. A first market launch in Germany is projected for the beginning of next year.

This is what you will be doing

Special Operations Associates are the tip of the spear. We’re looking for unicorns–people who can think strategically at the highest level while also understanding the bits that need to flip to follow through on the execution. A Special Operations Associate has an aptitude for blending analytics and creativity to scope and solve complex logistical problems, the operational prowess to get stuff done, and the self-starter compass to start moving on to the next problem right away.

You will work on the most strategic relevant topics for Pieter Pot together with the senior leadership team. These are high impact projects that require a cross-functional approach to succeed, such as expanding to a new region/country, implementing a new product line or switching to a new packaging type.

What will you bring?

  • 3+ years of experience in consulting, strategy, business development, operations, technology, banking, analytics or related experience;
  • Experience leading projects, hitting goals, and succeeding in a team environment
  • Experience in a dynamic, high-growth business or in similar projects is welcome
  • Interest in sustainability & circular economy

With the following skills

  • You have a bias towards action and are able to thrive in a fast-paced, constantly changing work environment
  • Strong interpersonal skills, you like to collaborate with many different internal and external stakeholders
  • You have a talent for synthesizing complex projects, can independently translate high-level goals into actionable plans, and enjoy implementing processes.
  • Strong analytical skills with data-driven decision-making capability.
  • You can ramp from being familiar to being an expert in a matter of days.
  • You can quickly switch focus to changing priorities on a daily base

    What do we offer 

  • We are growing rapidly, nationally and internationally. With that there is plenty of room for you to grow and implement your own ideas and visions;
  • The chance to make a big impact for a better world;
  • Ability to work remotely and to organize your hours flexibly;
  • Pot of money at the end of the months;
  • 25 vacation days and travel allowance;
  • Reimbursement laptop or telephone;
  • Comprehensive pension scheme;
  • Skip the waiting list and get discount on your packaging-free groceries at Pieter Pot;

Your still here, yeah!
