Urban Innovation Internship

We are looking for a talented intern who wants to join our start-up journey for 4-6 months in Amsterdam.

Fulltime, starting (end of) January / February 2023

Free the city!

As our new super-powered intern in Amsterdam for Coding the Curbs.

We are a start-up in curbside management working on changing the way that city space is organized and used. Started in 2020 as a spin-out from Elemental Strategy and The Future Mobility Network, we have a footprint of projects in Rotterdam, Amersfoort, Utrecht, Groningen, Riga and Bucharest.

Our dream is to create a more liveable and safe city with technology that allows users to book and use the public space. For example: logistics use our platform to book a timeslot to deliver goods in an efficient way. We’re like Airbnb for (un)loading bays. And we are looking for people that would like to help us make this dream possible. 

The timing is just right. Because we are developing our technology, rolling out our solution (Smart Zones) and building a team with ambitious innovators in the upcoming years. As our intern you will work in our core-team of 5 people on projects for (inter)national cities.

Are you looking for an inspiring internship at a start-up in the smart city domain? Yes?

We’re happy you found us.
