Which team will you become part of?
At Lightyear, our Engineering Team is divided into different domains and varies from Aerodynamics up to Software and everything in between. Essentially, we have all the expertises in-house to build Lightyear One. While you become part of the Electrical Engineering Domain, you’ll be surrounded by Electrical Engineers coming from different backgrounds. Some of them were part of a Solar Team, some come from the automotive industry and some are equipped with a solid high-tech background.
While you’re surrounded by talented engineers, you’ll become part of a particular project in which you’ll contribute from your field of expertise. Depending on the particular project you’ll work on, you’ll join a multidisciplinary team. For instance, if you join the battery team, you’ll collaborate with thermal, software, power electronics, mechanical, control engineers (and probably many more). At Lightyear, every individual left behind their safe havens to achieve our mission. So, a passionate and energetic team is guaranteed.
Your personal mission
While this vacancy can be considered as an open application, together with you we’d like to find out in what way you can contribute to Lightyear’s mission. Obviously, this will be Electronics related. Depending on your own preferences we’ll try to find the most suitable assignment technically to make sure you grow as an Electrical Engineer.
Requirements in order to achieve your personal mission
Be aware, being an intern at Lightyear isn’t just an internship. You’ll be approached as an actual engineer and that requires some skills. Especially given the fact that you’ll join a start-up where little is set in stone. Therefore, it’s key that you can relate to the following things;
Furthermore, you’re obviously either a generalist or a specialist within the field of Electrical Engineering. You’ve finished a Bachelor’s degree and you’re currently in between your Bachelor’s and Master’s, halfway through your Master’s or you would consider an internship at Lightyear as your closing chapter. We’re open for both, apprentice and graduate interns.
What do we offer
In addition to a challenging (graduate) internship you also have the opportunity to work for a company with a real, honest and ambitious mission. In this way you have the opportunity to make a huge impact on the future of mobility! In addition, we also offer:
Curious about how our current Electrical Engineering Intern, Lynrick experiences his time at Lightyear? Have a read below!
“After concluding my year at a student team at the TU Delft, I was in search of an internship where I can combine all of the knowledge that I got from my bachelors degree and during my year at the student team while also contributing to pushing the mobility sector to be more sustainable! That is how I ended up at Lightyear, as I can combine my electrical engineering knowledge with such an innovative vehicle. At Lightyear, the team dynamic is amazing and fast paced such that everyday there is something new which makes it a lot of fun and exciting!” - Lynrick Wix
So? Are you up for the challenge?
At Lightyear we are building an electric car that charges itself. From our experience at Solar Team Eindhoven we know this is only possible starting from scratch. At Lightyear we bring together a multidisciplinary team of highly motivated engineers, designers and visionaries to challenge the status quo. You can join us!
