People & Recruitment Intern

Amsterdam€500 - €500 per month

Job description

Become part of our mission to fill every van, which is on the road anyway, as much as possible. Because that makes everyone happy: the courier, the environment and your wallet. Win-win-win!

From our office in the heart of Amsterdam, as an HR & Recruitment intern, you play a role in growing our team. This directly contributes to Brenger's success and our beautiful mission! 👇

About Brenger
Brenger is a clean-tech startup in Amsterdam, founded in October 2016 by Wisse and Derk. Our transport platform makes it easy for everyone to transport large items such as bikes, cabinets, or sofas. Brenger manages these transports by utilizing the empty space in vans that are already on the road. This mission, "to fill every courier van on the road," is a win-win-win: we make the transportation of large items easy and affordable, our couriers earn more money, and we save CO2 by reducing the number of kilometers driven. Since its inception, we have prevented more than 14,885,871 unnecessary kilometers, saving 3,187 tons of CO2.

Since our launch in 2016, we have grown considerably. Brenger started in the Netherlands, recently also became active in Belgium and Germany, and we are about to scale up even further. There are some exciting years ahead in which we want to grow substantially and professionalize further to cope with this growth. In short: a close-knit and ambitious team with big plans to roll out Brenger throughout Europe!
