Designer at GripGrab

Would it motivate you to be part of a company with a mission to inspire and enable athletes to live an active lifestyle? And to combine your job with your passion for sport? Then read on.

GripGrab is a brand that inspires and enables athletes to be active and stay comfortable in all conditions. We are considered a high-end brand in the European cycling industry and our products are sold by more than 800 leading retailers both online and offline. We consist of a strong team of dedicated people who work for the same mission every day - and we are looking for a new colleague to strengthen the team.

We are looking for a designer to join our development department at the headquarters in Copenhagen. The successful candidate will be part of a small team working on the design and development of new and existing products within the GripGrab portfolio.

You will be part of a team, but will also work on tasks/projects individually, so you should be self-motivated and have a proactive approach. You will work closely with our regional office and be in direct contact with manufacturers and suppliers.

We are constantly trying to push our products to the next level, so it is important that you have a good eye for detail and can look critically at your own work. Working with products at GripGrab means that you will be part of the test team.

A general interest and knowledge about fashion and a sense of trends within sport in general and cycling and running in particular is an advantage on our journey to stretch the brand to include new product categories.
