Returnship Program (F/M/X)

Returnship Program • Full Time • Portugal

HEY THERE!

We are Mercedes-Benz.io. Our mission is to Ignite and build the digital solutions for Mercedes-Benz by forming a tribe of digital enthusiasts that drive Mercedes-Benz digital future.

Therefore, we offer 100% flexibility! You can choose if you want to work from your mobile office in Portugal, or from our offices in Lisbon or Braga. It’s up to each of us to decide according to our needs.

We don’t care about your shoes, as long as you are wearing the right attitude. At Mercedes-Benz.io we walk the talk and make things happen. We do not digitize for the sake of being digital but for a better tomorrow for our customers. That’s not our job; it’s our passion. Therefore, we love to reflect and challenge everything – the status quo, Mercedes-Benz, and ourselves. We share the same beliefs and stand up for each other and this is why we hire unique people to join our Tribe of digital enthusiasts. 

WHAT IS A RETURNSHIP PROGRAM?

A Returnship Program is an opportunity to return to the workforce after a career break.

Mercedes-Benz.io Returnship Program is a paid 6 months opportunity available for people who have taken time away from their careers and are interested in re-entering the workforce. It provides the needed training and mentoring, so that people can get familiar with our company culture and pace of the work environment while improving skills that may have become rusty.

If you’ve been out of the traditional workforce for at least 2 years – to be at home with your kids, to take care of a loved one or you just took time off to travel and experience different things while still discovering your next challenge – and now you’re ready to re-join the workforce, but you feel you would need some time and guidance to get your performance back on track, probably you can join this Returnship.
