WHY WE NEED YOU
We aim to strengthen our position as the company who is changing how the world sees bees and pollinators with an online marketplace.
For this internship, you will develop Bee Rescue's website. We want to create a platform that is more enganging and would improve the overall customer experience. Your responsibility will be:
Developing new features and enhancing existing core functionalities.
Innovating and developing the platform/product (this includes designing a new User Interface).
You can be creative and show us the way to do things.
We have a few ideas in mind but we really need you because we are no developers. We cannot wait to hear what other ideas you have. We are open to any suggestion!
No work experience is needed. It is enough that you have studied or you are still studying computer science/software engeneering or any related program.
You know how to work with WordPress and WooCommerce.
You speak English. If you speak Finnish too, even better but it's not mandatory.
No need to explain a gap in your CV because life happens. We have been there!
You are committed and with a positive attitude.
Obviously, if you like honey, that is a plus :)
DURATION & CONTRACT MODE
The duration of this internship can be discussed. In a perfect world, until the project you will be working on is completed, but we believe it won't take more than 6 months.
This intership can be full-time or part-time (in case you have another job that is actually paying you :D).
WHAT WE OFFER
We are still very small, thus, what we can offer is an unpaid internship. We offer you an opportunity to put into practice what you have studied and learned.
We would like you to join our mission and help us to reach as many people as possible with an up-to-date solution for beekeepers and honey lovers.
Are you our next Web Wizard/Witch? (Or is it Wizardess, Wizardette, She-wizard...aah I don't know). Anyway, step forward! Let's have a chat and see if we can help each other! Maybe you can also tell us the feminine form of "wizard".
We are a team of 3 with a diverse background:
Matteo - CEO & Co-Founder - F&B Business Expert
Cecilia - Co-Founder - Nature Guide & Hospitality Business Expert
Mariama - Shareholder - Marketing, Sales and Branding Specialist
Bee Rescue was founded in 2021 by Matteo and Cecilia. They both love honey and value the role of beekeepers and the importance of pollinators for the ecosystem. Mariama joined the mission later in 2022 to help with marketing and sales.
We live in 3 different cities so we work 100% remotely. However, it is appreciated if you live in the Greater Helsinki area so we can easily meet up if needed. Matteo misses face-to-face interaction!
This job comes with several perks and benefits
Time is precious. Make it count. Morning person or night owl, this job is for you.
Carve out time for your kids, friends and personal cider projects.
You know how you perform best. Work from your couch, your favorite cafe or abroad when you feel like it.
Dogs, turtles or goldfish are welcome in the office as long as they want to cuddle every now and then.
Social gatherings and games; hang out with your colleagues.
