Vässla is the Swedish word for weasel. A silent, smooth and freaking fierce piece of species. The weasel doesn't fear animals 10x it's size. Just like Vässla 🦾 We invent new vehicles and tech for the urban masses.
We are a part of the evolving micromobility movement that will change the world. We are the leading micromobility DTC brand in the Nordics area. We save loads of people loads of time by making commuting and short distance awesome and effective. The macro trends are crystal clear. Cities grow. Traffic congestion is escalating. The planet suffer. Humanity need to switch from four heavy wheels to two light wheels. Let’s make commuting great again.
Between April-June we'll take Vässla into the real world by introducing a pop-up store concept starting in Stockholm. It will be situated on Götgatan on Södermalm. There will be a combination of instore sales, test drive generation as well as educating and helping existing and new customers. If it works we'll extend with a permanent store.
Now we need you to host and serve 👋🏻
- Charming personality with an interest in technical stuff.
- Experience of in-store sales or similar.
- At heart love Micromobility and truly believe that it can fundamentally change the life of humans in urban areas.
- You need to be diciplined, creative and have a great brain.
- You need to be humble, kind and a superior human.
You will be one of the key members of our Store team, reporting to the Chief Marketing Officer. Before launch you will get proper training in the Vässla products.
This role can be combined with school work or similar.
Business is important but fundamental values are even more important. You need to agree to our core principles below.
1. Champion the mission
We’re on a mission. The traffic congestion thing is messed up. People are commuting their lives away and destroying the planet at the same time. This needs to stop. It’s our mission to make short distance travel sweet.
2. Low effort - high impact
Focus on stuff that takes little effort to do, but will have a great impact to many. Everything else must wait. Doing something unimportant well does not make it important. Also a task requiring a lot of time does not make it important.
3. Embrace change
One thing is for sure. We will change our mind tons of times. It can be anything. So you need to appreciate and coop with all types of change. We must and should change small things but also really heavy strategic stuff.
4. Always be scrappy
Vässla will grow up and become loads of people. It’s really easy to lose respect for money and the importance of being creative. Always strive to be scrappy. Always try to find a way to make huge projects small. Expensive activities - cheap. Hard things - simple. There is always a way.
5. Non douche bag policy
It’s simple. No matter how much money or fame that is at stake, we will never do business, cooperate or have anything to do with douchebags. If you sense one, steer away.
Our HQ is in Stockholm. We are nice and decent people.
