Sustainability Internship

  • Stageplaats
  • Amsterdam


This role is to start in the new year, January 2023. Candidates must be actively enrolled in a University in the Netherlands and be able to commit to working full time with us here at Otrium during the 6 month internship. These conditions are not able to be flexed, so please only apply if this is something you can fulfil.

Our purpose

Otrium is a purpose-led business – we see a future where all clothing is worn.

Every year, billions of items are produced globally but are never sold. Clothing goes unworn and often ends up in landfills. This is a huge waste of creative energy, labor, natural resources and investment. Otrium is changing fashion from the inside out: we are an online fashion outlet marketplace and we tech-enable designer brands to find an owner for every item they produce.

Our global business

Founded in Amsterdam and headquartered in the cloud, Otrium also has hubs in New York and London. As a digital-first company, we work around the globe and don’t need to limit our HQ to one location or a single hub. We want to ensure our O-team can work in a way that best fits their needs, whether that’s remote-first, hub-first, or hybrid (50/50).

Otrium is also committed to fostering an inclusive and diverse community of employees with a strong sense of belonging. We believe we are bettered by all forms of diversity, and take pride in working with talent from every walk of life and corner of the world. In the spirit of inclusivity, qualified applicants will be considered without regard to age, ethnicity, ability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, nationality, race, religion, or sexual orientation.

Here’s to freedom, flexibility, and global inclusivity!

Your impact

At Otrium, we don’t blindly fall in love with ideas, we listen to what the data tells us. As a Head of Data Analytics at Otrium, you will play a key role in ensuring that every decision at Otrium is driven by data. You will be a part of the growing Data & Analytics team and work on improving the data warehouse, building dashboards and answering complex questions about our customers and our business.

At Otrium, we want to make a net positive impact. Meaning, a positive impact through our business model – working towards a future where all clothing is worn – a positive impact on the people around us and through our operations. As Sustainability intern at Otrium, you will play a key role in ensuring every decision at Otrium is driven by impact. You will be part of the growing Sustainability team and work on improving our impact, our impact reporting & goal setting (e.g. GRI, SASB, SBTi, OECD guidelines) and stakeholder engagement. This internship will help you to acquire a deeper understanding of social- and environmental impact within the fashion industry in general, with a focus on ESG, SBTi and circular economy.
