A HELPING HAND

Join The Team

By mixing minds the best ideas come to life. We have a team with diverse skill sets and backgrounds all working tirelessly to make a lasting impact on sustainability and we are looking for fellows who wants to help us.

Ready To Make an Impact?

Blazing a trail is an exciting challenge. We are a start-up, headquartered in Utrecht, and almost ready to launch our marketplace (autumn 2021).

Joining or helping Local Happinez is a way to find new happiness in the more fundamental aspects of life. Seeing someone or something grow can give you a feeling of satisfaction like little else.

Our mission is key, not the profits

Local Happinez is a steward owned organization. Meaning: our mission is key. We’re not here for huge profits. We’re here to make impact. Now, and in the future. 

A team of volunteers

At this moment we work as volunteers. We donate our time, skills and knowledge, because we strongly believe in our mission. We hope you will do the same. And of course we’re growing into a organization with paid employees, but that takes a little time. We hope you will share your knowledge and time and make Local Happinez happen together with us!

Making impact

In the meantime, we share with you a fun, tropical office, the original Local Happinez hoodie (o yes, they’ve arrived), lots of laughter, (early) access to local happenings and most importantly… the opportunity to pitch in on social and environmental sustainability.

Our values

Sharing Equally

Being Trustworthy

Acting Lively

Getting Things Done

Loving Adventure

Open Positions

Want to join a not so ordinary start-up who’s on a sustainable journey? We’re always open for a chat, so get in touch to find out how we can help each other.

IT developer

Help us turn Local Happinez into an intuitive, worldwide scalable platform. Let’s get more digitally connected than ever before and make Local Happinez work as well as it looks. Develop, code, build, install, configure, troubleshoot, debug, upgrade and maintain: you name it, we need it, you do it.

Designer

We have a lot to say and share. No nonsense here. Only problem is: we haven’t got the best way to express it visually yet. We need some fresh thinking on UX and Design. Know how we strike the right balance between the need for instant recognition, whilst still staying true to how we are? Show us and bring our brand to life. Digitally. Visually.

Fellow The Happinez Program

Yes, it’s a customer care program but with a twist. Our fellows and locals are the heart of Local Happinez. So we need to ensure that they are satisfied. 24/7. Know how to provide superb on- and offline customer service? Hooray! Just give us a call and let’s develop an outstanding loyalty program from scratch together.

SEO Consultancy

Sometimes all you need is a push in the right direction, right? Not only do we love to spend a morning picking the brains of a SEO expert, we could also need a more hands-on role. Help us formulate a bespoke strategy and support us with the right use of SEO.

Traineeship/Stage

Of course we provide traineeships to students. What better time to learn about putting sustainability into action than when you’re young? We’re open for students with a background in technology, marketing/communication, small business, international studies or design. For obvious reasons, it’s necessary to speak English. Not fluently, but yes, we do need to understand you ;).
