Operations Intern

Start date: 1st of February 2021

About us:

Up to 15 percent of a major city’s space is used for parking. At the same time, roughly 85 percent of existing parking spaces are daily unoccupied. At ParkBee, we are on a mission to change that. We develop smart technology to optimise the use of existing parking space, thereby allowing cities to reduce on-street parking and give space back to the city. These last few years we have seen our business grow exponentially and our goal is to expand even further.

ParkBee is growing rapidly and the team is playing a central role in this. Currently we have a team of 57 people in The Netherlands and 6 people working in our London office and we keep growing!

Our operations team takes care of all our locations and makes sure that users are satisfied. They do a range of tasks from technical maintenance to customer support to create an above-expected user experience.
