Lead Designer
(Bicycle / E-Bikes)

Munich. Full time

Innovate with our Design Team in Munich!

Jump into an exciting leadership role in the beating heart of Munich. Bring your POV to our dynamic studio environment, where we actively challenge the status quo. You’ll bring your perspective to develop bicycles, e-bikes, and their components – playtesting new ideas and taking them to market. Steer projects. Lead your talented team. And make an undeniable impact on the future of an industry. Connect multiple services, not just within our Munich office, but worldwide – including brand specialists, research, engineering, and communication. Discover the epicentre of innovation – it’s your time.

In this role you will…

  • Generate impressive new production bicycles, e-bikes, parts, and components and next-gen e-mobility concepts with your team.
  • Receive, understand, and translate design briefings into outstanding proposals. From first sketch to final 3D model.
  • Connect the dots between strategic product management, user needs, engineering, and communication.
  • Lead your small, skilled team with openness and purpose. Mentor when necessary and steer the team towards ground-breaking results.
  • Confidently verbalise your proposals in presentations and represent KISKA in external client meetings.

We are looking for…

  • A bicycle expert with 8+ years’ experience in the industry. You’re familiar with designing production bikes from start to finish (ideally in various categories).
  • You know what’s ‘hot’. You’re always on the pulse of new development / manufacturing processes and materials in various industries – like fashion, footwear, sporting goods, or automotive.
  • Someone with a ‘point of view’ regarding the future of e-bikes. A design visionary who has an open eye for progressive design and can competently bring it to market.
  • A natural leader who goes beyond to inspire their team and drive projects to success. Sociable, likable, and always reliable for a fresh opinion or concept.
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills in English.

KISKA is an equal opportunity employer. It’s a no-brainer, but important to mention. Salary compensation is based on current market expectations, as well as your proven skills and experience. We offer competitive benefits to all our employees, from intern to director. Live with the support of our HR team and in the rich diversity and culture of our studio. Work according to your schedule with our Flexi-time policy. Play in the cityscape on our doorstep or throw yourself into one of our social events. What are you waiting for? Your next big adventure is waiting for you.
