Asset Manager – Mileway

We offer an opportunity you simply won’t find anywhere else. In less than three years, Mileway has grown into Europe’s leader in last mile logistics real estate, with a 350-plus team across more than twenty offices in ten countries.

We’re looking for an experienced, high-calibre Asset Manager to join our Dutch team. You’ll be part of a young, dynamic team, working alongside colleagues from all over the world. You’ll report to our Senior Asset Manager, as we build and consolidate our position as the market leader in last mile real estate. As Asset Manager, you’ll join an existing team of Asset Managers who together will cover a diverse portfolio in the Netherlands. You’ll be responsible for asset management strategy and lease and property management.

You’ll drive the management of our premium asset portfolio while making great connections and building our local and national relationships.

The right candidate has not only the drive and discipline to handle the day to day, but the ambition to grow with us as we develop an unparalleled opportunity as the principal player in last mile real estate.

Working at Mileway

Mileway set out to be a different kind of real estate company from the beginning, setting things up the way we always wanted them, like our cloud-based IT infrastructure and our team’s ability to flex across borders, combining the best of local knowledge with the pooled expertise of a pan-European business. While we have already achieved a lot, with a portfolio stretching across Europe, our international, can do team, is only just getting started. Demand for e-commerce and ever faster deliveries continues to grow, changing the way property around cities is used.
