Internship (f/m/d)

Job description

If you’re reading it, you’re probably a fresh graduate or are still studying and looking for an internship. We were in your shoes one day too, so we know how hard it is to choose your professional path at such a young age without having too much experience. Probably you’re asking yourself what do you like doing, what are your strengths and/or where you can bring the most value to the company?

No worries, we’ve got you covered! Thinking about smart, motivated and creative individuals like yourself, we’ve decided to create an open internship role at Upvest. Depending on your skills, experience and interest, we would assign you to one of the teams at Upvest (Growth/People/Product/Engineering/Banking/Operations) to help you discover the areas you can excel and find your vocation.


Your mission:

Support one of our teams in taking Upvest to the next level as we go to market with our pan-European Investment API. We double our headcount from 50 to 100 over the next 6 months, and are looking for motivated self-starters to support us during this busy and exciting time. Working alongside one of our senior leaders, your main focus will be around contributing to the evolution of their team by bringing your knowledge and passion to support our Go-to-market over the course of the few months and potentially beyond. No matter the role, you’ll collaborate cross-functionally, supporting the team with external (clients, partners, etc.) and internal (product team, legal team, etc.) stakeholders.

If you're someone who is hands-on, eager to learn and wants to make an impact, we'd love to hear from you!

Requirements

  • You can commit to a 3 to 6-month internship
  • You're currently based in Berlin or open to relocate for the time of your internship

  • You’re hungry to learn & passionate about the Fintech industry

  • You’re fluent in English, both written and spoken 

  • You love to be challenged and have no problem taking responsibility


What we offer

  • We're working on solving a hard problem: fixing the European securities financial infrastructure that empowers more people to be able to invest. You have the opportunity to contribute to this change.

  • We invest in you. From access to a personal coach, development budget and plenty of opportunities to grow in your role.

  • We take hiring seriously with a strong focus on keeping a high bar when interviewing (equally important is that we also hire decent people who are passionate about their craft and helping up achieve our shared mission).

  • While we're not quite fully-remote, we are committed to being a flexible employer as we understand you don't have to be in the office to do your best work.

  • We live a culture of empowerment, trust (that we hire the best people and get out of their way) and openness (there's a greater advantage in sharing information than keeping it to ourselves).

  • We ensure we take time to have fun as a team. We're looking forward to having more time in-person again once this becomes possible again.

The initial duration of this contract can be between 3 - 6 months with the potential to convert to a full-time role.

Why Upvest?

We’re looking for fintech enthusiasts to join us in creating the financial infrastructure of tomorrow. We’re building the first European Investment API to enable any financial institution to offer a broad range of investment products in their apps. Our view is backed by Europe's largest tech VCs (Earlybird, Notion Capital, Partech, HV Capital, ABN AMRO Ventures) and by renowned fintech entrepreneurs (including Maximilian Tayenthal, founder of N26, and Felix Haas, founder of IDnow).

At Upvest, our vision is to make investing as easy as spending money. By enabling any business to offer investment opportunities, our goal is to empower anyone to invest. Today, we count 50+ talented people from 20 different countries.


Our values:
  • Learn and grow: We aim high to shape our future. We give and request honest feedback. Everything is a learning opportunity. Progression > Perfection.
  • Team first. We make it easy for others. We value different views, disagree, and commit. We win and celebrate together!
  • Own the outcome. We are proactive and finish the job until it is done. Happy clients > Sales. We take breaks when needed.
  • Tell the story. We always start with the ‘why’. Outcome > Process. We share knowledge to empower others.
