Content & Communications Intern – Autonomy

Autonomy is an independent, French startup focused on accelerating the transition to a smart and sustainable urban mobility. Alongside our events that connect innovators and policymakers together, we have also built up a blog and knowledge platform that has become an industry reference for thought leadership in the transportation/mobility space. Autonomy works with public institutions such as the Mairie de Paris, sustainability networks like Polis Network and ICLEI, as well as with large companies in the industry such as Engie, Renault, Allianz, RATP, EY and Uber, among others.

In the last year, Autonomy took a major turn to adapt to the COVID-19 crisis: we hosted our first digital edition in November 2020, and are now planning our second edition for May 2021. In preparation for our May event, we are seeking a Content & Communications Intern. As a member of our team, you will be assisting both the content team in the creation and management of the knowledge platform and our content offerings, as well as the marketing and communications team in developing event and website communications materials. 

Our team is multicultural, and we come from a variety of diverse sectors. Much of the work is to be done in English, both written and spoken. As a member of our team, you wish to take part in an ambitious and challenging project.
