Project Engineering Intern



Zürich, Switzerland
Posted on Thursday, July 4, 2024

At Urbio, we fight climate change by improving the way buildings decarbonisation is planned. Our mission is to empower the key actors of the energy transition with ground-breaking decision support software that lets them plan and design future-proof energy technologies and retrofit measures. We’re looking for impact-driven people to build together a globally leading software company.

Project engineer intern

We are looking for a highly motivated intern to help us support Urbio's growing user-base (energy providers and energy consulting firms) in their urban energy activities such as...

  • design of district heating networks
  • implementation of municipal energy planning
  • assessment of energy communities potential
  • decarbonisation of real estate assets


You will have hands-on experience with the Urbio app, actively participating in demos, tailored trainings and applying it to real-world use cases. You will also contribute to the development of documentation related to Urbio's product, AI technology and applications.

Finally, your engineering expertise and strong communication skills will allow you to collaborate closely with both the operation and commercial teams (online support, energy data setup, implementation of technical reporting, ...).

As an intern, you will be followed up and supported by our experimented operation team.


For this position you need to...

  • study engineering (Bachelor or Master student)
  • have knowledge about energy and buildings
  • have some basic experience in GIS tools
  • speak English, German or French is a plus

In your daily work, you are not afraid to step out of your comfort zone and like working both independently and in a team.


Working at Urbio provides you with many learning opportunities in a highly motivated and qualified team. This is also your chance to gain practical experience in a fast-growing startup that targets an emerging international market.

Our core motivation at Urbio is to reduce the adverse impacts of cities. Your work has thus the potential to considerably improve many aspects of cities worldwide and will in particular allow cities to adopt more sustainable pathways.

Location & time

  • We are a remote-first company with a team spread across Switzerland, so you should be in a similar time zone. Depending on your location, there is the possibility for in-person meetings in our Sion office or co-working spaces in Zürich & Lausanne.
  • We are looking for someone to onboard in late summer/early autumn 2024 and able to dedicate at least 60% of their time for a period of 3 to 6 months.
