Hubs Real Estate Intern (m/w/d)


Picnic is the world’s fastest growing online supermarket with a simple mission: to make grocery shopping quick, easy and affordable for everyone. To be able to achieve this mission, it is important to have a forward-looking operational strategy. We want bright students to join our team and help us solve those operational challenges.  


Where you fit in

As our distribution expands, we are constantly establishing new hubs. Hubs are the base for the future growth of Picnic and therefore an essential piece of the company. Hubs are a bustling environment where deliveries arrive, get packed in Electric Picnic Vehicles (EPV’s) and are sent out to customers. As our Hub Real Estate Intern, you’re part of the team that focuses on the expansion strategy of Picnic in Germany. 

You’ll take ownership from searching for new properties to opening them up as Picnic hubs. This is the opportunity to apply everything you’ve learnt in an evolving operational environment. You tackle issues, lead communications with third parties and other Picnic team members, and take ownership of forward-thinking ideas.

Our interns fit straight into a demanding atmosphere. You’ll work together with the entire Distribution Team and play an important role in it. This will give you a unique 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 will aid our Hub operations while making an impact in Europe’s fastest growing supermarket.
