Would you like to experience what it is like to work for an innovative food company, develop products yourself and gain a lot of knowledge about ingredients and nutrients? Then come and work at Jimmy Joy as an intern!

Who are we?

At Jimmy Joy we make vegan meals (including shakes, bars, drinks and instant hot meals) that contain all the nutrients your body needs. Since our start in 2014, we have sold and shipped more than 30 million meals to 88 countries. Our mission is to shake up the food system. We do this by creating healthy, tasty, sustainable food that saves time and money. This leaves you with more energy to do what’s important to you, such as finally finishing your thesis or learning to play the bagpipe on a high level.

What are we looking for?

Ultimate happiness, just like everyone else. But also a curious and enthusiastic food scientist/nutritionist with a critical thinking who is ready to do some research and play with ingredients.

  • You love to read the nutritional information and ingredient list on the products you consume
  • In a discussion, you have some scientific references to support the facts! 
  • You have a good basic knowledge of nutrition and health

  • You are a driven and passionate student with a strong affinity for healthy food and product development
  • You must have a nutrition, food science/ technology, related sciences background
  • You are available 32 to 40 hours per week, for at least 4 months 

What’s in it for you?
