Lending Business Development Intern

Berlin, Germany · Interns/Working Students

We’re looking for a Lending Business Development Intern to join our amazing team in Berlin! Lending is one of the newest products within SumUp, a crucial part of our multi-product strategy. It was born in the middle of the Covid-19 crisis in order to support our merchants to survive this period of uncertainty – and now the team is expanding! 

As a Lending Business Development Intern, you will play a key role in substantial projects in a highly successful fintech company. You’ll participate in the launch of our new Lending product in multiple new EU markets, collaborating with stakeholders across the business and bringing your ideas to the table. Lending is a fast-moving product in its early stages, so it’s time to roll up your sleeves!

What you’ll do

  • Help driving our country launch strategy and execution across Europe

  • Develop your project management skills while working with our launch strategies and processes 

  • Collaborate cross functionally, supporting the team with external partners (like credit agencies or law offices) and internal stakeholders (e.g. product, marketing and legal)

  • Drive product adoption test strategies and analyse conversion optimisation potentials

  • Challenge current processes and formats, organise customer research, work on funnel optimisation, understand the pain points of our merchants, optimise communication fronts and much more!

You’ll be great for this role if

  • You can commit to a 3 to 6-month internship.

  • You are currently studying or already have a degree in Business Administration, Finance, Management or a related field.

  • Ideally, you already have experience working in a fintech or start-up before, in the field of Business Development, Strategy, Project Management or Marketing. 

  • You have strong written and verbal English skills. German, French and Italian are a plus. 

  • You’re passionate and an entrepreneurial thinker, intrinsically motivated and eager to learn.

  • You’re able to manage multiple priorities efficiently and follow-through on multiple high-priority initiatives seamlessly. 

  • You have proven project management skills – with the ability to organise by implementing new projects.

Why you should become a Future SumUpper

  • You'll receive support from our Future Talent Department focused on supporting our Interns and Working Students during their journeys.

  • We support WFH, especially during Covid-19 times.

  • You can take part in internal development workshops designed to support our Future SumUppers during their careers.

  • We’re a truly global team of 2000+ people from 60+ countries, spread across 3 continents.

  • You'll attend global offsites and regular team events.

  • We offer free German and yoga classes, subsidised Urban Sports Club membership and other great benefits.
