Hi! We’re Enviu. We believe in an economy that serves both people and planet and together with partners we develop issue driven, entrepreneurial programs to disrupt and drive specific industries towards a “new normal.” We also build multiple world changing companies that prove inclusive and sustainable business models.
In one of our programs, called THRUST (Towards Hydrogen-based Renewables Used for Ship Transportation), we work towards a fossil fuel free maritime sector by supporting knowledge development, setting up pilot projects and building business cases for a transition towards use of renewables. THRUST aims for a truly zero emission sector using the potential of sustainable energy and alternative fuels and giving the energy transition on water a push forward!
We are currently developing a software tool to assist stakeholders (shipping companies, brokers, governments etc.) in making strategic decisions regarding moving towards applying clean fuels and technologies onboard vessels. This model allows calculation of comprehensive voyage costs including the environmental impact of the selected voyage and ship type for various transition scenarios and timelines as well as different combinations of fuels and technologies. We aim for a more transparent and understandable decision-making process towards shifting to truly zero emission alternatives.
The model is built on a Python™ code. We currently have a working demo-version online that is being optimized and expanded and we need your help!
We are looking for an intern for our Rotterdam office with Python™ programming skills to finalize this model, allowing us to go online with the full version.
It would be great if you are able to…
- Write Python™ code from scratch
- Understand basic HTML & CSS
- Optimize and expand the current Python™ code and algorithms (Dash by Plotly)
- Develop an excel-based terminal to allow non-python users to add data to the model
- A nice and welcoming office space in the center of Rotterdam
- Hands-on experience in innovation in one of our flagship programs;
- The opportunity to build skills in the cleantech sector
- Monthly remuneration of € 250
- An entrepreneurial start-up environment that gives you space to think independently and explore your potential;
- Working with a group of talented, passionate and fun colleagues who share the ambition to change the world;
So if you are (studying to become) a Python™ specialist, looking for an internship of 3-4 months, and want to make a positive impact on our planet, then we are looking for you! Please send your CV and motivation to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com before February 14th.
