Junior WordPress Developer / Web Developer - Internship

Salary Unpaid


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 :)


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).


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!

Working at
Bee Rescue

Did you know that we are facing a rapid decline of the honeybee population? Honeybees play a key role in our eco-system as they are great pollinators. Sadly, their population is decreasing because of diseases, pesticides, and other man-made threats. Climate change is also playing a key role in this. Without honeybees, many crops would disappear. Thus, it is important that we take care of bees. To do so, we need beekeepers. Bee Rescue is a marketplace where users can decide to adopt a beehive. By adopting a beehive, you get the chance to help beekeepers doing what they love the most: taking care of bees and making sure bees stay healthy. In return, you will receive a jar of delicious honey and an adoption certificate. Our beehive adoption is available for everybody: costumers and enterprises. You can also decide to buy it as a gift for your friend, relative or significant other.
