Do you have experience with user interface design and want to help drive the energy transition? Spectral, a renewable energy and technology start-up in Amsterdam, is looking for an intern to strengthen the development team. If you can bring enthusiasm, we can offer the opportunity to be a part of a game-changing team working on several front end developments, supporting materials for our marketing and communications, and and much, much more.

Key words: sustainability, smart energy, technology, renewables, energy transition, innovation, user interface design, user experience design, front end, media.

Spectral develops technological solutions that unlock the value of energy storage, demand flexibility, and locally produced renewable energy, propelling the evolution of smart energy networks. Our mission is to accelerate the global transition towards 100% renewable, clean energy supply. We believe that one of the most urgent issues is to solve the challenges for providing for our energy needs in a sustainable way. Not only is access to energy essential for high quality of life, but virtually everything is reliant on an input of energy. Our long-term vision is to develop scalable solutions that will revolutionize the way we provide for all of our core resources, focusing on the key areas needed for leading a healthy and fruitful life: energy, water, sanitation, food, shelter, and resource recovery.
