Sales Executive

eBee is a Kenyan start-up with Dutch roots founded in 2021. The purpose of the company is to make cities in Sub-Saharan Africa cleaner and more habitable. We believe that e-bikes can greatly contribute to this. The massive growth in popularity of e-bikes over the last decade has proven that e-bikes can replace ICE two-wheelers in urban areas. E-bikes are also a great tool to generate income in the form of delivery. It’s time to make this great vehicle class accessible to every person in Africa! To reach this goal we have launched the first e-bike subscription (B2B) of Sub-Saharan Africa. Our primary focus has been on the delivery market, with e-bikes specially designed for food and light parcel delivery. Because of this successful introduction, we have developed the first e-bike build for Sub Sahara called the Nyuki One expected to be launched in January next year (B2C).

eBee is a for-profit company but has a strong social outlook. eBee has a positive, diverse, and supportive culture—we look for people who are curious, inventive, and work SMART to be a little better every single day.
