MBA Internship (f/m/d)

Job description

Your mission:

Support our Growth team in taking Upvest to the next level as we go to market with our pan-European Investment API. We double our headcount from 30 to 60 over the next 6 months, and are looking for motivated self-starters to support us during a busy and exciting summer. Working alongside our Business Development Lead Alex, your main focus will be around optimizing our sales process, making it a seamless and delightful experience, first and foremost for the customer, but also for our internal 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!


This role will give you the opportunity to:

Contribute to the evolution of our Growth team by bringing your knowledge and passion to support our Go-to-market over the course of the summer, and potentially beyond:

  • Conduct independent market research to identify, collect, manage and analyze relevant business opportunities

  • Create and conduct targeted outbound campaigns

  • Support the Growth team in creating compelling engagement programs for potential customers

  • Develop and execute initiatives designed to establish and optimize sales process efficiency and productivity

  • Spot ways to improve the usage of and interaction with our CRM tooling

  • Elevate the Growth team with support on the internal knowledge sharing tools

  • Collaborate cross-functionally, supporting the team with external (clients, partners, etc.) and internal (product team, legal team, etc.) stakeholders

      Requirements

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

      • You have experience with customer-centric sales processes and customer communication

      • You are currently doing your MBA or have just graduated

      • You’re fluent in English, both written and spoken (German is a plus)

      • You like to be challenged and enjoy 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 within the Growth team.

      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).


      We’re based in Berlin but would consider hiring remotely for this role. If you do want to move to Berlin though, we’re happy to support your relocation.

      At Upvest, our vision is to make investing as easy as spending money. By enabling any business to offer investment opportunities to anyone, our goal is to empower 100 million people to invest (by 2025). 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.
