Process Improvement Intern Sept 1

Job description

Are you allergic to inefficiency? Great, we are too! Improving processes is what you like the most. You have a strong understanding of business processes and you like to support innovative projects from idea to implementation. 


As Process Improvement Intern you will be supporting our Operations and contribute to growing the success of felyx. We’re looking for that person who is a king/queen in communication, doesn’t need to be told what to do, while being in the space to learn. Furthermore, you like to work in a fast-paced environment and can contribute to translating business goals into successful project plans. 


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. We are working together as an ambitious team of entrepreneurs, operators and engineers, and looking to grow as we scale the business throughout Europe. Do you share our DNA: self-starting, open, social and driven? Great! Join our ride!


Here’s the challenge

As Process Improvement Intern at felyx you’ll work within the Central Operations team to ensure that we continue to improve our operational processes and systems, so that our city teams can successfully run the day-to-day business. Mouth full right?


To break it down, you will:

• be involved in project management and process improvement in the field of Operations.

• identify areas of improvement in our operations and find creative solutions to improve in these areas. How cool would it be if you could help optimize our Operational processes by introducing a gamification concept or develop a new system to prioritize day-to-day tasks in the workshop?

• work with different departments. Because the work of all our teams comes together in our Operations this internship gives you the opportunity to interact with other teams like our Local Operations or Development teams. We are looking for someone that is ready to join our improvement ride!

• manage step by step implementation of projects.  And important not to forget: we encourage you to grow within the company as we

are continually on our journey towards ‘world domination. Just kidding, the market leader in Europe will do (for now).

Requirements

We truly get excited if you:

• Have a background in Industrial engineering & Management, Logistics, Supply Chain, Operations, Business or similar studies.

• Have a problem-solving mindset and love to uncover new business opportunities

• Have a natural tendency to clearly structure projects

• Are highly organized and have excellent communication skills

• Think creatively and out of the box

• Have a hands-on mentality, are proactive, curious and structured

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

• Available from Sept 1st, 2022

Bonus points if you

• Are excited about sustainability and urban mobility services

• Have knowledge in Lean, Kaizen or other operational excellence methodologies

• Are a felyx user!


Last but not least: fun, freedom and trust! We're not scared to work our butts off, but this is only possible once we all experience joy in the work that we do every day.We are very proud of the fact that we have been named by LinkedIn as a top start-up to work at for the second time in a row, together with many other prestigious awards we’ve received since our start in 2017. We are operational in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Groningen, Haarlem, Eindhoven, Den Bosch and Brussels and will be launching many more (European) cities in 2021. We have a strong focus on scaling up internationally.


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.
