Global Launch Intern

Job description

Hi there, go-getter! 

Are you bored of sitting behind a desk 40 hours a week? Do you seek freedom and aren’t you afraid to take responsibility? We have just the role for you as we are facing a hypergrowth in the Netherlands and the rest of Europe these upcoming years, we are looking for three Launch Interns to ensure felyx’s success in our new Western European markets. 

We are looking for people that like to work in a fast-paced environment, get a kick out of hitting ambitious milestones and while you are a great team player, you also don’t mind dealing with a lot of responsibility independently. Oh, and bonus points if you’re the type that rolls up their sleeves and goes straight to business ;)

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. And being a fun way around town is, of course, a great bonus! At felyx, everybody within their own expertise is contributing to a cleaner city by making this swift door-to-door transportation the new status quo.

Do you share our DNA: self-starting, open, social, and driven? Great! Join our ride!

• You are an HBO or university student with some earlier relevant work/intern experience

• Have good communication skills & effective management of peers

• You are a great project manager & planner: you easily manage lots of tasks at the same time without losing overview

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.
