Who we are looking for
We are looking for an energetic intern who is eager to learn the “ins and outs” of an international OEM-backed mobility startup. You’ll work directly with the founding team with responsibilities ranging from copywriting /marketing to any number of tasks that simply must be completed.
We are a small team with a larger supporting network based abroad and will consider part-time as well as full time candidates.

- “Get it done” Attitude – Outside of key specializations, each day’s tasks are available for any member of the team to take on – you will be encouraged to step outside your comfort zone and perform meaningful work from which both you and Company will benefit.
- Work with the Co-Founders to build the business. A great opportunity to grow and learn what it takes to build a startup from the ground up.
Through the process you will be exposed to many core business functions as well as learn what it takes to operate a VC-backed startup in a disruptive industry.
What are we looking for
- An interest in mobility and early stage companies
- Strong communication skills
- Team Player Attitude
- Ability to work independently; initiate and complete tasks as necessary
