Hubs Operations Intern (m/w/d)


Picnic is complex and has a growing distribution base. This provides plenty of room for optimisation of our processes. We want bright students to join our team and help us solve operational challenges.  

Where you fit in

As our distribution expands we are constantly establishing new hubs. These are the last stop for groceries. Hubs are a bustling environment where deliveries come in and electric vehicles are packed and sent out to customers. As our Hub Operations intern, you’re part of the team that focuses on opening, supporting, and maintaining hubs.

With complex operation challenges, there’s room for inventive thinking and smart solutions. In parallel to optimising a critical piece of our operational puzzle, you work on a unique internship project. This is the opportunity to apply everything you’ve learnt in an evolving operational environment. You tackle issues, optimise processes, and take ownership of forward-thinking ideas.

Our interns fit straight into a demanding atmosphere. You will work together with the entire team, and you’ll certainly be treated as a full-time employee. This will give you invaluable experience in a challenging environment. By getting a foot in the door, you’ll create a solid platform from which to embark on a career. Your hard work and personal project will aid our Hub operations while making an impact in Europe’s fastest growing supermarket.
