At InterNations, we’re dedicated to making expat life a great experience! With about 3 million members in 390 cities around the world, regular local events, interest-based groups, and useful information, InterNations is the biggest global network for people who live and work abroad. What started as an idea over ten years ago is now changing the lives of expats and global minds around the world each and every day.
With a team from over 30 countries, we believe in the benefits of international experience, cultural exchange, and the power of bringing people together. Together we’re constantly growing and learning, coming up with new ways for our members to feel more at home, meet other international people, and enjoy their stay abroad.
About the Role
It’s an exciting time to join: in line with our mission to make expat life a great experience, we plan to build up a services platform which will help expats to relocate internationally. Finding the right expat service provider is challenging for expats as there are many small-scale providers, with little transparency about the quality of the services. We will digitalize and disrupt this market in order to support people who move internationally and to further expand our business.
