Certification Manager

Job description

JUMP Bikes is building the future of urban mobility: shared electric bikes that are the quickest, most enjoyable, and most empowering way to get around a city. Cheaper than most public transit and faster than cars in traffic, JUMP e-bikes are game-changers for local transportation. Founded in 2010, JUMP pioneered dockless bike share and has deployed more than 14,000 bikes in 6 countries. This year JUMP is launching the next generation of bike share in San Francisco, Washington DC, and other top tier US markets. Our goal is to transform cities, making them more sustainable, equitable, and livable through electric mobility.


To make this vision a reality, we need to grow our team. We place tremendous value on our company’s roots and culture: a mix of ingenuity, controlled chaos, hard work, and sense of purpose. This is a great opportunity to join a rapidly growing team that is shaping the future of transportation.


About the Role 
We are currently seeking a Certification Manager to assist in the development of our next-generation of electric bikesharing products. IoT devices, electric drivetrains, and outdoor charging stations are a crucial piece of our product offering, and the regulatory environment around them is evolving quickly. We need to grow our product team so that we can efficiently ensure our products are safe and certifiable - and in doing so, take a leadership position in defining the standards of this new industry.



  • Review our product categories and operating markets, using this information to research necessary certifications and testing procedures for entering and operating in those markets; 
  • Work with test labs to move projects through initial, final, and recurring certification scopes; 
  • Work with manufacturing partners to ensure that products are being developed to meet the necessary certifications, and tested informally during the development process in a way that prepares for eventual independent certification; 
  • Manage the controlled introduction of new products, establish testing plans, organize pilot production runs, and implement quality standards which ensure that large-volume production runs maintain certification criteria.


Job Type: Full Time 
Compensation: Commensurate with experience
