The story

Founded in 2014, Ampler Bikes started off as a spare-time project, when the three founders came together to experiment with building an e-bike in a garage.

Over the years, Ampler Bikes has grown from a small bike start-up into a committed e-bike company with a large international team, and showrooms in Berlin, Cologne, Amsterdam, Zurich and Tallinn.

The company’s lightweight e-bike models have won multiple awards, and are being used every day by over 10,000 happy riders all over Europe.




The challenge

High-volume hiring and expanding into new markets

The main challenge of this project was finding the right people for Ampler during the e-Mobility market boom. At the start of our partnership, Ampler was looking to grow rapidly, and was eager to move into new markets across Europe where competition was fierce.
“We asked for TalentHub’s help, because we were busy growing our business and didn’t have enough time to spend on finding new people. We had previously hired on our own and had made good choices, but scaling the business needed more helping hands.”

Hiring process

The project has seen our recruitment partners Marleen and Teele take the role of an internal recruitment partner at Ampler Bikes.

Throughout the recruitment project, we have worked together with the founders of Ampler, their head of people and culture, as well as other team leaders.

From the Ampler team, we have received input about the roles and types of people that they need. Once we have understood the job spec and mapped out the candidate profile, we’ve moved on to headhunting candidates from various channels.

Our main responsibilities have been headhunting candidates from various channels, conducting initial screenings, as well as assisting with first-round interviews.

 The types of roles we have hired for Ampler have varied significantly, from showroom and service station managers to full-stack developers. However, our focus has always been on sourcing talent from local markets, whether it be from Estonia, Germany, Switzerland, or the Netherlands.
When hunting down talent, it has been important for us to identify candidates that fit Ampler’s values and culture. Ever since Ampler started, one of its main values has been to be an eco-friendly company.
