Vacancy: Head of Ground Operations

The Head of Ground Operations is a highly adaptable person who switches easily between long-term strategic initiatives and rapid deployment actions on the ground.

This role will be overseeing eleven distribution centers in the Netherlands, ensuring that daily operations run smoothly, efficiently, and always with high quality. From the moment a parcel is picked up at a webshop until it’s loaded in the van, ready to be delivered.

“We are a young company and culture, with a true start-up mindset. We want our employees to challenge themselves, dare to do things differently but always make sure to have fun. We’re on this journey together.” – Jørgen Höppener, General Manager Netherlands

A large part of the position involves strategic and bold thinking for process improvement in a rapidly growing business, such as developing tracking tools for within terminal processes, improving personnel productivity, and expanding the company’s terminals. Work time will be divided between tactical decision making and ‘having one’s feet firmly on the ground’, managing teams at the terminals, establishing relationships with couriers and partners, and ensuring everyone is operating in a safe working environment.

The Head of Ground Operations will have a seat in the local management team and report directly to General Manager Jørgen Höppener (former Roland Berger Strategy Consultant). Next to being part of a top-performing company that shapes the future of e-commerce, this position comes with a competitive salary and the chance to grow into the role of Operations Director in the future.
