ScaleNL is looking for a Program Operations Manager


We’re looking for someone who loves to be involved in the day-to-day running of founder-focused services, events & programs. If you’re a great organizer, tireless problem-solver, have an international mindset and are driven by helping entrepreneurs succeed, join our mission to solve global challenges with Dutch Tech.


What you can expect from the role:

At ScaleNL, we run online and offline events, tailored programs and an international community platform to support Dutch Tech startups scale into the US market. Your role will focus on the tailored programs like the ScaleNL Accelerator and Academic Startup Program.

You will work alongside our Program Director, Kaoutar Ashour, who is responsible for the ScaleNL activities. You’ll play a key role with planning, organizing and running our programs as smoothly as possible. This includes planning and executing online events, offline events and the US business trip, managing feedback loops and reports, communicating clearly about program activities to participants, stakeholders and internal team. To do this, you’ll be in touch with our teams in the US, the Dutch Founders we help, our US-based mentor network and our local Dutch partners. You’ll also support in communication, helping in planning, crafting and publishing compelling content to keep our community up-to-date and engaged.

We’re on a mission to help Dutch Tech scale to the US and you’re the one that will be making sure we do that on a daily basis. We’re a small team with big ambitions and focus on our founders first! Sometimes that means all hands on deck: for the team to support you and for you to support the team.


What you can expect from us:

  1. Remote-first and Netherlands-based (we don’t have an office, but meet regularly for work sessions and to host events),
  2. Work closely with our local US teams (and an opportunity to visit the US team during programs!),
  3. An international, entrepreneurial and dynamic team, passionate about the mission we’re on,
  4. Exposure to the Dutch and American startup and innovation ecosystems,
  5. A freelance, flexible work agreement (4-5 days a week).


What do you bring?

  1. Approx. 4 years work experience in planning and organization function(s) such as project manager / event manager / operations management in the startup scene.
  2. Creative problem solving skills, attention to detail and drive to improve our processes for scalability.
  3. Fluency in English both spoken and written.
  4. Experience with apps like Zoom, Mailchimp, GSuite, WordPress and comfortable working with Slack.
  5. Based in The Netherlands (Randstad) and have a valid work visa for The Netherlands.


When, where and how?

We’d love for you to join us as soon as possible. Ideally, you should be available for at least 4-5 days a week. We work from home and meet up weekly to work together, and regularly host in person events.

While applications for this round are now closed, we encourage you to keep an eye out for future openings!
