Who is Lightyear?
Lightyear is an innovative and progressive scale-up with one mission; offering clean mobility for everyone, everywhere! Lightyear originates from the multiple world champion of the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge® Cruiser Class, Solar Team Eindhoven.
With Stella and Stella Lux this team developed a solar powered, 4 person, road legal car. Lightyear was officially established in 2016 aiming to make this groundbreaking technology accessible to everyone! In 2016 it started with 5 visionaries.
At the beginning of 2018 Lightyear had grown to 40 highly motivated people. Today, Lightyear consists of nearly 150 employees and keeps on growing.
Lightyear has its own production facility and in the summer of 2019 we moved to our brand new office. This growth will continue in the coming years.
For that reason we are looking for talented interns to strengthen the company and contribute in achieving our mission!
Which team will you become part of?
You’ll become part of the Quality Department that drives quality through continuous improvement and cooperation with internal and external stakeholders.
