Kalkhoff is part of the world's largest bicycle family: Pon.Bike. We aim to accelerate all our brands by enabling everyone to make data-driven decisions. The BI & Analytics team manages a significant number of dashboards and is currently building a new Pon.Bike data platform. This platform will allow every employee in the organization to access our available data, from both internal and external sources. And you are the one that can make that happen.

Pon.Bike is a globally operating group of brands (including Gazelle, Cervélo, Santa Cruz, Kalkhoff, Urban Arrow, and Swapfiets) that delivers the best bicycles in every market segment - from off-road downhill to urban comfort bikes. We pride ourselves on creating a broad portfolio of innovative products, of the highest quality, and with excellent value for money. Whether you're looking for a connected e-bike, an ultra-modern full carbon racer, or a car-free way to get the kids to school, we have a bike that suits you. Within Pon, people are the DNA of the company, where people have the passion to perform, are given the trust and freedom to work, take responsibility for their actions, and enjoy their work. That's the connection, that's what makes Pon strong. It's the way we interact with each other, our customers, and suppliers every day.



You will build, manage, and innovate - together with the BI & Analytics team, enabling the brands to work more data-driven and quickly adapt to market changes. In essence, you are the hub in the wheel of the Pon.Bike BI & Analytics organization. You will coordinate with the Process Owners, other owners of source systems, and with Product Owners of various front-end and back-end teams of the IT organization. You take the lead in gathering, coordinating, and prioritizing business wishes from various Pon.Bike brands.

Your stakeholders work for one or more brands (Gazelle, Union, Urban Arrow, Kalkhoff, Focus) or locations (Dieren, Amsterdam, Emstek). A location in Lithuania will be added in 2024. We also expect to expand the BI team in terms of capacity.

You keep up-to-date with digital and data developments and translate opportunities and threats into concrete actions. You work closely with the Dashboard Owners of the brands Kalkhoff, Focus, Gazelle, and the Process Owners of Pon.Bike.
