Wildling Shoes was founded in 2015 and is a rapidly growing company that designs, produces, and distributes minimal shoes for children and adults. We aim to bring children and adults into more direct contact with their environment and to support an active lifestyle. Our shoes are produced in Portugal under fair labor conditions and are made from predominantly natural materials that are organically sourced (leather-free). With your help, we’d like to raise Wildling’s profile in France and Italy and encourage more people to discover this incredible walking experience: "Through trusted partnerships and loyal relationships, we make the Wildling spark fly and spread Wildling's values throughout the world" (excerpt from Team Commitment).
As Country Specialist Italy & France, you will be responsible for Wildling’s presence in both countries. Through continuous monitoring and analysis of external factors (trends, competition, customer needs, and so on) and our internal data (sales, webshop traffic, customer service tickets, etc.), you reinforce our understanding of the southern European market. As part of the internationalization team, you’ll be developing a dedicated marketing strategy for southern Europe and establishing further partnerships and cooperation projects on site. By working closely with our marketing, webshop, and customer service teams, you will become our internal expert for these markets.
