Seeking Phenomenal General Manager

Applications opened 5th December 2019

Applications close Friday 3 January 2020

Help lead the urban transport revolution

Tiller Rides was founded in 2016 to create a successful Australian business that improves people’s health and wellbeing while reducing their impact on the planet. 

Our first venture has been to create the Roadster electric bike – the future of modern urban transport.

The Roadster is unique in its style and functionality. Its sleek lightweight pressed-aluminium frame is the key to its seamless integration of an impressive array of features. On a Roadster you can ride every day and for any occasion with ease and style.

 

Tiller Rides has recently pre-sold more than 195 Roadsters, selected its manufacturer and recently completed a crowd funded capital raising to mass produce Roadsters for delivery to the first customers in mid-2020. 

 

Post-delivery the next phase of our business development will see a significant ramp up in marketing, sales and manufacturing to deliver high volumes of Roadsters both nationally and globally. 

 

To date, Tiller Rides has operated with a small team of highly competent and committed people. We now seek an experienced and aligned General Manager to grow with the business and oversee corporate operations and activities.
 

 

About the role

 

The General Manager will be a person who is driven by strong values and who is passionate about the ‘why’ of Tiller Rides – to change the way life is lived in our cities to improve outcomes for people and the planet. 

The successful candidate will be someone who is results-driven but who is also flexible and creative. The right person will not be afraid to  ‘roll up their sleeves’ in  a start-up environment and pitch in to get things done. At the same time, they will be organised, disciplined and focused to ensure that their areas of responsibility deliver to expectations and meet deadlines.

 

Our new GM won’t be someone who is looking for a GM job – it will be someone who passionately wants to join the Tiller Rides team and be a central part of leading the urban transport revolution.

 

Key responsibilities

  • Work closely with the MD and General Manager Production to form a cohesive leadership team to deliver the vision and products of Tiller Rides.

  • Lead a team that oversees all corporate activities including:

    • Sales and Distribution

    • Finance & Accounting

    • Reporting & Compliance

    • Planning and Budgeting

    • Human Resources

    • Risk Management

    • Company Secretariat

    • Health and Safety

    • Information Technology

  • Support the MD and Board in developing future strategies and managing customer and stakeholder relationships.

The opportunity

The GM will work for the most part from Tiller Rides HQ in White Gum Valley, Western Australia or new premises in the Fremantle area when we relocate in the new year.

The position can be part-time initially so long as there is a clear intent to convert it to full-time as soon as is practical.

We are a family-oriented, flexible employer that promotes work-life balance for our employees. 

A competitive remuneration package, including Options in the business, will be offered to the successful candidate. Initial salary will be commensurate with the current financial status of the business but will grow as the business grows over the next few years.
