Corporate Startup CEO Seeks Assistant

Hi, I am Daniela, the CEO of moovel Group GmbH, and we are working on what matters in making cities smarter. In my job I have to deal with a broad variety of topics and challenges every day, and of course everything needs to be done and decided as fast as possible. This is why I need – you!


Our goal is to radically simplify individual mobility and to build products and services which enable true flexibility. moovel is part of a large global corporation (Daimler AG), but at the heart of it we are a start-up. We act as a partner for cities, transport networks and customers with the goal of making cities smarter and creating an operating system for urban mobility that provides access to appropriate mobility options in urban areas and paves the way for the future with autonomous vehicles. Currently, 250 employees work in small creative teams in Germany and the US at four locations – Hamburg, Berlin, Stuttgart and Portland.


The most important things start on the right mindset. In my opinion, in order to have a successful company it is necessary that we all work on the same level, that is why thinking non-hierarchically is essential.

Also, I need someone to partner with, who not only knows how to create catchy and professional presentations to reach the full attention of different audiences, but also someone who is organized, empathetic and whom I can fully trust. In management, many decisions are underpinned by data analysis, for which entrepreneurial thinking is just as important as a good understanding of figures.

As you can imagine the tasks can sometimes vary several times a day, so it is important to be flexible, structured and reliable.

Besides, you would be based in Berlin, but you would have to travel on a regular basis to Stuttgart, as I am currently located there.


Breaking down concrete tasks for this job is not that easy, but that’s what makes it so exciting. In general I am looking for my right-hand man/woman, who oversees the things that need to be done and helps me work them out. Here are some things I know I would like to entrust you right away:

  • Support me professionally in all strategic and operational responsibilities and coordinate with my amazing secretary Özlem and direct reports to prepare all meetings, talks and presentations
  • Support new business ideas, conceptualization and execution of projects and understand my short- and long-term priorities and help to balance in accomplishing both whenever possible
  • Execute and/or delegate tasks as requested, expedite follow-ups and ensure that all contents will be available and delivered on time
  • Conduct deep analysis and apply problem-solving as well as conceptual thinking skills and applying strategic thinking skills to further develop moovel and our products
  • Develop storyboarding and content for executive level presentations and reports to communicate and achieve buy-in for strategic recommendations
  • Develop and apply appropriate methodologies for different analysis and researches for the moovel management (eg. competitor analysis, market trends)
  • Coordinate and communicate with all departments of moovel, our shareholder Daimler Financial Services as well as Daimler AG and organize/document meetings and workshops

I will be travelling quite a lot, but there is no need to accompany me to every single conference and meeting – that is up to you!


I am very excited about my work and I truly enjoy working with people who are just as enthusiastic about developing new products for urban mobility that our customers love. Furthermore, I am not omniscient, that is why I love to work with creative people who have ideas and like to express their opinions, giving new impulses or showing different viewpoints.

In a nutshell, the job might every now and then be really challenging for sure – but I can tell you working with so many different people, cultures and challenges is very rewarding both personally and professionally.
