Spin is a fast-growing micromobility company committed to a world with clean air, liveable cities, safe streets, and widespread access to convenient, affordable transportation. If you’re searching for a top-tier career where you can make a difference and dynamically collaborate within a creative, lively environment—Spin welcomes you!
We’re passionate about transportation and technology. The work we accomplish fulfills a sense of meaning and purpose, which goes beyond the traditional dimensions of a workplace. Our products and initiatives directly influence people’s lives, which is proven by our customers' feedback.
Founded in 2017, and now a subsidiary of Ford Motor Company, we have worked together with cities, campuses, community groups, and businesses to expand internationally. Even as we expand, we maintain the close feeling of a small business, with “fireside chats” chats led by our company’s founders, weekly OKR pop-up videos, music-infused presentations at our All Hands meetings, and more. During this time of working remotely, our creativity and shared goals have kept us united and bonded within our virtual community.
We are a diverse team of artists, engineers, designers, urban planners, policymakers, marketers, and operators. We believe in inclusivity and build powerful alliances to fulfill our goals and move our mission forward. Above all, we at Spin are connected by our values and #BeOrange spirit, which represents unity, purpose, passion, and creativity.About the Role
Spin’s Public Policy team is actively formulating and advancing regulations, policies, and strategies to make shared micromobility an essential option for people everywhere. We have the ambition to enter markets across Europe, including jurisdictions that have yet to welcome micromobility, and we are looking for someone to help make that happen.
For many reasons, 2021 is poised to be an exciting year for shaping the future for micromobility and crafting the foundation for more sustainable cities across Europe. As a fast evolving industry, you will be joining our team with the chance to make a meaningful difference in developing new policy and regulatory frameworks that advance the adoption of micromobility, and further solidify its place within local transportation ecosystems.
We’re looking for a proactive, motivated, and strategic-minded professional who is passionate about mobility and ready to lead our public-policy efforts across Europe. As our Director of Public Policy, Europe, this person would run efforts to develop and advance our regulatory and legislative priorities, shape regulatory frameworks, implement strategic initiatives to position Spin as a policy leader, manage consultants and/or direct reports, and support the company’s expansion into new markets.
The ideal candidate has a willingness to work in a fast-paced and highly competitive environment, has a strong background in working collaboratively with or within governments and public agencies, has a track-record of developing and achieving legislative and regulatory priorities across multiple markets, and has experience in or knowledge of transportation policy.
