HEY THERE!

We are Mercedes-Benz.io. Our mission is to create digital experiences to shape the way for the future of Mercedes-Benz and a new world of mobility.   

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.

YOU WILL BE HAPPY WITH

  • 2/3 months paid internship with a detailed program for a higher learning curve

  • No top-down hierarchy. We trust in your self-organization 
  • Colleagues that are as smart, hardworking and driven as you 
  • An amazing open-minded and informal culture with the backup of a giant company like Mercedes-Benz.io 
  • Feel good actions (massages, nutrition sessions, happy hour and more) 
  • Much more cool stuff… 

WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO KNOW ABOUT US

  • Mercedes-Benz.io develops software and technology for the digital platforms of Mercedes-Benz. We are focused on creating digital experiences for the future of Mercedes-Benz mobility worldwide, developing products for Sales & Marketing. 
  • Our main products are the Mercedes-Benz Website worldwide, the e-commerce platform digital services and aftersales solutions.    
  • We work in Holacracy – a “non-classical” framework which represents our operating system within the company. Our setup is based on purpose, circles and roles as well as their specific accountabilities. 

 

This is a full-time internship, based in our office in Lisbon. We have a fantastic team with people from all over the world. We encourage frequent collaboration and pairing across disciplines. English is the main working language.  

Mercedes-Benz.io is an equal opportunities employer. We believe that diverse experiences and a broad collective perspective lead to a better company culture and better products.
