Sales Manager Retail – Germany

Is your goal in life ‘creating impact for a better world’? Then this is your Dream Job. As our Sales Manager Retail Germany, you are the driving force behind the Dopper mission and our presence in the retail arena in Germany.


Every minute, a truckload of plastic waste enters our oceans. And in that exact same minute, one million single-use plastic water bottles are purchased. Coincidence? We don’t think so. This plastic problem is getting out of hand. Plastic waste never disappears. It just breaks down into smaller pieces, circulating our oceans for millennia to come.

You might know the Dopper bottle. A colorful bottle. Or actually, a bottle and a cup in one. But it’s not just any reusable water bottle. The company behind it, is making sure no more single-use plastic water bottles enter our oceans.

Dopper has developed into a strong sustainable brand with sales and distribution in various European countries. By raising awareness about plastic pollution, by offering education, stimulating research and investing in clean drinking water projects where people need it the most. So choosing reusable over single-use becomes a real option in those places as well.

As you can see, Dopper is nothing less but so much more than a water bottle. Dopper is a Benefit Corporation, a B Corp. Dopper does not just want to be the best in the world, Dopper also wants the best for the world. This means that besides profits, the organisation wants to make an actual impact as well. Major steps have already been taken, and Dopper continues to strive for a better world. Where everyone can and will choose reusable over single-use to protect our world’s water sources. The bottle is the message!
