Product Marketing Manager

Joolz is a fast-growing Dutch company from Amsterdam. We believe that happy parents raise happy children. That’s why we offer young families building blocks to spark their lives with positivity. We call it ‘Positive Design’. It means, we build award-winning, ergonomic, comfortable and stylish pushchairs, car seats and (organic) accessories that contribute to a vibrant lifestyle. Within our philosophy, we look for innovative solutions that help us create a sunny future. Our reusable packaging, the Joolz Birth Forest (where we plant one tree for each registered pushchair), our Dutch production facility and our new Amsterdam headquarters are the epitome of that. Housed in a sustainably renovated factory with greenhouses and other smart energy-neutral solutions, it is an inspiration to further grow our ‘Positive Design’. Founded in 2004, today Joolz is available in 29 countries around Europe, Asia, Australia and the United States.
