Driver / Rebalancer (nightshift)

Salary Competitive

Erdem, who grew up in Istanbul, saw how bicycles are the key to more liveable cities, the environment and health." One of the founders of Donkey Republic, he saw in Copenhagen in 2012 how a number of friends from different cities shared bicycles with the location and sent the combination lock code via SMS. He thought there should be an easier way. The start was funded with a Kickstarter. Today, Donkey Republic is active in more than 70 European cities with 17,000 bicycles. The goal is still there: more cyclists with fewer bicycles. We are looking for a few new colleagues to support the growing (e-)bike fleet in the company's home city Copenhagen, assisting with daily operations and maintenance of the bicycles.
