Rebel is looking for graduate/young professional transportation and strategy consultants with an interest in urban transport and fare collection projects

In 2002 we started Rebel because we wanted to make the world a little bit better. Today, 150 Rebels are working from offices in Rotterdam, Antwerp, Johannesburg, Manila and Washington DC on projects in socially relevant sectors including real estate, infrastructure, mobility and transport, culture, healthcare, security and energy.

We believe in small-scale business and entrepreneurship. For this reason Rebel comprises a collection of small ventures in which we are both employees and shareholders. Ventures are involved not only in advising but also in investing. For example through projects in which we are co-providers of capital, or through the setup of a new business or investment fund.

Rebel Transit & Ticketing
One of these companies is Rebel Transit & Ticketing. We provide advisory services on urban transport projects with a special focus on financing, implementing and improving seamless payment and ticketing systems for public transport – and we do so worldwide, from Europe and North America, to South-East Asia, the MENA and Sub-Saharan Africa regions. We provide these services to both public sector and private sector customers through supporting tender processes, project development and public policy strategies – and always at the interface of the public and private sectors. We are small but fast growing, allowing new collegues to build a business and the company.

Example projects
Some of our projects include:

- Business (re-)modelling and change management for a large government operated fare collection system in North America
- Tender advice on a Bus Rapid Transit project in Sub-Saharan Africa
- Tendering and implementing a contactless card for all metropolitan transit services in a city in South-East Asia
- Supporting an international consortium on creating European interoperability of transit smart cards
- Project development and tender support on an integrated metro line in South-East Asia

Who are we looking for?
We are growing – and therefore we are on the lookout for a new colleague. A graduate/young professional who can help to further grow our business – but also somebody who takes a broader interest in Rebel’s activities as a whole. Somebody who wants to build an understanding of the basic (economic) dynamics of payment methods in public transport, projects and policies in urban transit, technology review and design, and create more value and business along the way.

- You are a soon/recent graduate or young professional (up to 5 years work experience)
- You have obtained a graduate degree in economics, business, IT
- You have keen interest and linkage with problems and challenges at the public-private interface, in particular in a mobility and fare collection context
- You have a proven ability to solve problems on the basis of conceptual thinking as well as through application of quantitative analysis
- You have proven analytical capacity, strong speaking and writing skills in English and preferably a minimum of one other language
- You can be proud of being accurate and consistent in reporting
- You have the ability to work independently, create and seize opportunities where they arise, bring a strong commercial drive combined with an interest in social and civic issues – and you see yourself developing an ambition to contribute to our growth and make Rebel even more successful

What you will be doing (at first)
We envision that you will be spending the majority of your first year to:

- Learn about Rebel and connect with other Rebels
- Learn about e-ticketing, automated fare collection and public transport in general
- Do desk research and write reports and proposals
- Prepare presentations to clients

What we offer
We offer a dynamic and pleasant job in a creative and enterprising environment with inspiring colleagues. An environment in which you will have maximal space, opportunity and support to develop yourself. You will work from our offices in Rotterdam, but will join us in our projects abroad. You will be provided with amply autonomy, encouragement, remuneration and the opportunity to co-invest (in due course) both in Rebel itself as well as in new Rebel initiatives.
