Country Manager - Gambettes Box Germany

My Little Paris is hiring!

About

Gambettes Box is a monthly subscription tights box which sends two pairs of original tights to women all across Europe. Gambettes Box was launched in 2012 in Paris by a team of women who were tired of the poor purchasing experience when buying tights at their neighborhood supermarket. They decided that tights would now be cool, playful, fun and that all women should feel empowered when wearing a pair of Gambettes tights.

After a few years of rapid growth in France, Gambettes Box is now going European and is recruiting an amazing business developer to be our Country Manager for Germany. So you will be responsible for the success of our expansion in the German Market.

Gambettes Box is part the My Little Paris Group. We have offices in Paris, Berlin and Tokyo. Our French headquarters are in an artist loft in the 9th arrondissement, where we hold frequent creativity meetings with founders from around the world (we heard Tim Cook really liked our “Poulet rôti”…).
