Backend Development Intern - Sept 2022

Job description

As urbanization is rising and the air quality is deteriorating, we feel the need to make our cities greener and healthier by offering a sustainable mobility solution. Besides, we offer a new and fun way around town! At felyx, our objective is to create cleaner cities by making this swift door-to-door transportation the new status quo. We are working together as an ambitious team of entrepreneurs, operators, marketers and engineers, and are looking to grow as we scale the business throughout Europe. Do you share our DNA: passionate, transparent, ambitious, and entrepreneurial? Great! Join our ride!

Here's the challenge:

As Engineering Intern, you are one of the faces of felyx who will keep felyx running. The framework is set, but now it is up to you to help the team to further develop our backbone of the company: the back-end and front-end of the product that everyone loves, our sustainable e-scooters!

During the internship, you will join one of our backend teams to work on a standalone project or alongside the team. Examples of previous internship projects are a battery swap recommendation system and a damage detection reporting tool. Feel free to bring your own project ideas and pitch them for us.

We work primarily with the Go programming language in a microservices-based architecture. Furthermore, we use Docker, Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment, RabbitMQ, gRPC, GIT, RabbitMQ and SQL. Lots of new terms? That is okay, but the more you know, the quicker we will beat the streets together!

For contributing with it, you will:

  • Be part of a team that is building the back-end and front-end of our e-scooters

  • Create, manage and further develop our backend applications

  • Be creative, smart, and work ethically

  • Don’t be afraid to showcase yourself


We truly get excited if you:

  • Are a HBO/WO student in ICT, Software Engineering, Computer Science or a related field of study

  • Are result-driven, well organized and ambitious

  • Have programming skills in one or multiple languages (Go or Python would be a huge plus)

  • Are familiar with agile software development and methodologies like Scrum or Kanban

  • Always get the job done

  • Available from September 1st, 2022

Bonus points if you:

  • Are excited about sustainability and urban mobility services

  • Are looking for an internship in a fast-moving scale-up environment

  • 4-6 months available

Joining our ride is becoming part of the leading global platform in urban mobility. Having a direct impact on the business with a high degree of independence will give you a very steep learning curve. Maybe also nice to know: we have a very strong, family-like team. Are you exciting? Then we both know you should apply.

At felyx we believe that the best workplace is one that represents the world we live in today. This means we believe that diversity in the broadest sense of the word connects us and drives us forward as a company.

We believe that diversity goes hand in hand with different perspectives. It is these different perspectives that can help us become better and more innovative in finding solutions for our customers.

And because we believe this can be achieved, we are looking for colleagues who are intrinsically motivated and bring the right experience. Gender, age, sexual orientation or origin will never be a factor and will never become one.
