What started as an idea to digitize assets grew into a worldwide fintech scale-up with $36 million in funding (and counting!), 50%+ growth in 2020, projected $500 million in sales in 2021, 2.5 million active customers, a presence in 180 countries and 22 markets, a team of 140+ employees and 35+ nationalities! The Category Manager takes category management within the company to a whole new level.

About is a fully digital, hyper-growth scale-up of Dutch origin. Whether you’re after a prepaid credit card, cryptocurrencies, new credits for your mobile phone while you’re abroad, or online credit for A-brands such as iTunes, Netflix, Spotify, Playstation, or Amazon – Recharge is the international one-stop-shop for all digital value products. Globally, they are the first worldwide platform in the industry, giving them the first-mover advantage. Their partners are international A-brands in a wide range of categories, including app stores, gaming platforms, online shops, prepaid credit card providers, and mobile top-ups.

In recent years, Recharge expanded quickly in terms of products, channels, and markets. As a result of the global COVID measures, no one can ignore the relevance of the proposition and the company’s growth is accelerating even further.

Vacancy: Category Manager

The Category Manager will be part of Recharge’s Category & Buying Team, one of the key pillars of the company’s future growth. As said, this growth is anticipated to be unprecedented. New partnerships are an indispensable part of the growth strategy. Establishing and maintaining partnerships with suppliers will be the Category Manager’s responsibility. Thanks to a strong commercial mindset and exceptional negotiating skills, the Category Manager knows what’s needed to drive partnerships to the next level, while keeping a close and commercial eye on margins.

The role is a cross-over between the FMCG approach to category management, pricing, and partnership management. It involves enhancing their assortment, driving a competitive pricing strategy, contributing to the performance of the Marketing team, strategizing with the Expansion and Business Development team, and liaising with brand partners about growing their categories.

“A smart, analytical person who loves to win and really likes working together with others – that’s how I’d describe the ideal Category Manager. An agile, ambitious and results-driven professional who brings us closer to our ambitious goals.” – Jeroen Siegerink, Director Category & Buying

Categories: Shopping & Utilities
The Category Manager has extensive knowledge about categories. This is exactly what’s needed to develop a clear and effective category vision for both categories. The Category Manager identifies key opportunities and challenges for each category and adequately translates these into strategic growth for the business. 

Changing gears within seconds
Recharge is an extremely fast-moving international company. Every day is different and full of new challenges, divergent currencies, and multiple stakeholders. In order to succeed in this high-paced company, a flexible mindset and the ability to change gears within a matter of seconds aren’t nice-to-haves, but crucial must-haves. The Category Manager excels in strong analytical and commercial skills and thrives in a dynamic, international organization where English is the common language.
