Who are we looking for?

To help grow Futureproofed, we are looking for a marketing and sales intern, who is enthusiastic about creating change and making a positive impact.

At Futureproofed we only look for the most talented, curious, fun and dedicated people, right across the organisation  —  from sales to customer support, from product development to accounts receivable.

We don’t want to be hiring just the smartest people, it’s also about developing the most flexible people, to create the best-performing teams. At Futureproofed we are also committed to being an Asshole-Free-Zone.

Here’s what we have to offer: you will have to work hard to catch up with a large and growing list of ideas; things may be more chaotic than elsewhere; our plan might even fail. But the quid pro quo is that you will have more responsibility, it will be more fun, you will learn and grow more, you will do meaningful work, and help in making a real impact.

Internship description

Participate in developing automated sales and marketing efforts for Futureproofed Cities and Futureproofed Business, and learn all about sustainability and the road to net zero in the process.

Your main missions

  • Nurturing Marketing strategy: help develop and implement a nurturing strategy aimed at funnel progression (from lead to customer)
  • Lead scoring and qualification: support the development, implementation and documenting of the lead scoring and qualification strategy
  • Campaign management: collaborate with the marketing and sales teams in conceiving and launching multi-channel campaigns aimed at acquisition, nurturing and opportunity generation
  • Email marketing: help implement and coordinate email marketing campaigns, produce and maintain email templates, ensuring consistent A/B testing experiments
  • CRM and marketing database maintenance: ensuring data quality and completeness
  • Marketing-sales processes: collaborate with the marketing and sales teams to ensure smooth lead processing and follow up.

Your side quests

  • Content Marketing: help develop the content marketing strategy
  • Coming up with great ideas: it’s not because you’ve not finished school that you cannot have the best ideas ever. Surprise us!
  • Be your awesome self: we are pretty nice people to be around. We like coffee (not necessarily made by you, no worries), cake, cycling, rooftop drinks and having fun working.


Must have

  • Motivation to tackle climate change and interest in the opportunities it brings for cities and companies.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills in, ideally: French, Dutch and English.
  • People skills: patient with empathy and natural enthusiasm, comfortable working in a team.
  • Self-motivated and eager to grow and learn. At Futureproofed, we won’t tell you what to do, but we will support you in being the best version of yourself.

Would be nice

Studying in a marketing or sales orientation, although enthusiasm, drive and our general impression of you will prevail.

What we offer

  • A meaningful internship that will return useful work experience.
  • Flexibility in working hours and location (we're located literally next to the Leuven Station)
  • The opportunity to grow and learn within a fast-growing startup

About Futureproofed


At Futureproofed we see climate change as one of the greatest threats to humanity — on par with nuclear warfare, in fact — but also as an unprecedented opportunity for people, cities, and businesses to thrive.

We believe our ability to reverse the climate crisis and build a fossil-free, circular and biodiverse society will determine our fate in the coming decades. Either we become the fools who let the climate change tragedy unfold, or we become the superhero generation who speed up and scale the transformation to a cleaner, more attractive cities and a fossil-free future.

Our tools and solutions help cities and companies create opportunities, on the road to a fossil-free future.
