Business Development Internship

About Object Embassy

Object Embassy is a young and quickly growing design furniture start-up that does things differently. We have a limited number of products and we only sell online, direct to the consumer. On the one hand we are creative, hyper entrepreneurial and not afraid to experiment (and fail). On the other hand we are very much data and process driven. By doing so we can offer top quality products for an honest price to 'design lovers' all over Europe.

The internship

We are looking for a Business Development Intern in Amsterdam. Within this role, you'll be helping with the further development of our international sales and creating a plan for new channels.

  • You are enrolled in a HBO or WO education in the field of economy, business or commerce (year 2 or higher)
  • You don't have a 9 - 5 mentality

  • You have a driver's license
  • You have a more than average interest in (interior) design
  • You're available for at least 4 months - 4 days per week

What we offer
