Project Content
Feniska creates products for cats and dogs and their owners. We're a pet tech company from Berlin, Germany, which uses IoT and data analytics to create a holistic platform that empowers pet owners to make better decisions about the wellbeing and health of their pets. Our first products consist of an app and smart devices to collect and analyze data about pets (dogs and cats).
Our vision is to enable pet parents to live a happy and carefree life with their pets.

The team consists of four people who have a background in product development, bioinformatics, international management, and design. We're just about to launch our first product, which is the Feniska App. The Feniska App offers an easy and fun way to track and monitor essential health data of pets manually. Additionally, it has an information hub with curated content to help pet owners navigate their journey as pet parents.
So, if you're eager to learn about product launches, app development, the B2C sector, Go-to-Market, or if you're just in general interested in the startup ecosystem, then you should apply for this intern position.
We're excited to get to know you!
