Finance Intern (f/m/x)

Intern / Student, Full-time · Köln

Who are we?
Road freight transport is worth EUR 350 billion in Europe alone. At the same time, trucks and trailers are among the worst CO2-pollutants. In essence – we need to fix road transport if we want to fix the climate crisis. Period.

How can we do that? We are Germany's first digital sharing platform for commercial vehicles. Our customers and partners love our offer: fleet companies can flexibly rent and lease trucks and trailers depending on their workload. Therefore, we are solving one of the biggest bottlenecks for fleet operators, suffering from demand and supply volatility. Eventually, our sharing business model reduces the carbon footprint and provides a sustainable future for the logistic industry.

Investors appreciate our approach – we are backed by Europe’s finest venture capitalist.
