Picnic is data-driven and complex – from pricing strategies, forecasting, warehouse automation, to the ever-expanding growth of our company, we are constantly faced with new challenges and opportunities. That’s where you come in! 

Picnic offers you the opportunity to work in an innovative start-up culture where everything you do matters. With a data-driven approach and an incredible service, Picnic strives to make grocery shopping simple, fun, and affordable for everyone. Known for our just-in-time supply-chain and a unique last-mile delivery strategy, we have become one of the fastest-growing companies in Europe!

Where you fit in

Picnic is evolving. We’re a growing company constantly presented with new challenges. This creates a lot of room for inventive ideas. From perfecting our delivery routes, forecasting our growth or coming up with new strategies to reduce waste - there are great opportunities for unique projects. As one of our interns, you’ll be part of a dedicated team and take ownership of your ideas.  

From day one, you start coordinating a personal project. You develop the proposal and take complete ownership over an idea. It’s important to us that you run the whole project from initiation to implementation. That means, the more time you have available, the more interesting projects you can take over!

Have a look at some example projects to further develop our unique supply chain at Picnic: 

  • Project 1: Rethink routing algorithms. Combine in- and outbound in truck planning algorithms.
  • Project 2: Optimize deposits and other returns across the entire supply chain.
  • Project 3: Reinvent our performance prediction of runners -  Improve the planning cycle of runners + online marketing and advertising activities for runner recruitment

There are a variety of projects you could support us with along our fulfillment, distribution, commercial or growth teams. If you also have your own ideas of projects that could fit within Picnic, please make sure you get that across!
