WORK AND TRAINING AT WM TRADING

At WM trading GmbH we have over 30 years of experience in the bicycle industry to hand. Despite all of this experience, we are a young team with innovative ideas and a shared passion – our curiosity for developments and trends on the bicycle market.

If you are also open to new ideas and you are an enthusiast for everything bikes, if you like to test products in the field, if you are motivated to visit trade fairs and work in an international team and have good enough English to communicate with people from other cultures per mail and phone, then we are a match.

We promote a relaxed and fair work environment and love to take our energy and creativity to go off the beaten track.

If you would like to work in a dynamic team and are looking for a new challenge in the bicycle industry, then you’re right at WM trading. We’re looking forward to you!

More Information

We like to share enjoyable experiences together, even outside the job: collective cooking events, a horse-drawn carriage ride through vineyards with homemade bread and sausages, watching the football world cup together, a raft trip and barbecue, a stroll through Tübingen, a “Stäffelestour” (touring Stuttgart’s many flights of steps) with stops for rounds of schnapps, or regular sport sessions in our facilities with personal trainer Adelheid. You will always feel safe with our personal guard service: the company dogs Django, Leyla, Leo and Suria! But it’s probably best if you like dogs.
    We visit national and international trade shows to nurture our relationships with customers and suppliers, to expand distribution networks and discover new products and technologies. The most important trade shows for us in Germany are “Eurobike”, the world’s largest and most important trade show located on the shores of the picturesque Bodensee, the “Berliner Fahrradschau”, the “Spezi” in Germersheim and the “Bike Festival” in Willingen. Within wider Europe “La Riva di Garda” is especially dear to us, where bike aficionados meet every year in glorious sunshine and stunning scenery for cycle rides, shop talk and simply to enjoy! In Asia we are present at the Taichung, Taipei and Shanghai trade shows and use this important platform particularly for cooperation with our suppliers. Embarking on long and short rides for testing purposes is always important to us, for example to improve technical servicing for our MINI folding bikes or to try out projects in development. Our employees enjoy the opportunity to commute to and from work on test bikes, some with electric motor, some without – and to document and discuss their experiences.
