Ever wanted to design an piano? Here's chance. We develop a lightweight acoustic piano and strive to optimize our design and generate future design ideas, to catch the attention of the many piano enthusiasts out there that prefer acoustic sound and value practicality and affordability. You will get the chance to work with modern production methods and see your design ideas in real life on a challenging and versatile product that enables great design expression balancing tradition and modernity.

Keybird Instruments IVS is a start-up developing a lightweight acoustic piano, which we aim to have the practicality and affordability of a digital piano without giving up on the acoustic sound and authentic feeling of the keys. We believe that musical expression through the use of acoustic instruments is so valuable that there should be more affordable alternatives on the market. Currently we are in the prototyping phase and want to release our product in the fall of 2020. Many things are happening at the moment, so if you like the process of starting a company and all the little side things that happen in such a process, that will be to your advantage.

Our mission is to bring diversity and accessibility to the world of acoustic pianos. We are convinced that the acoustic piano can intrigue many enthusiasts with the way it is constructed, which has led us to the design philosophy of form follows function and construction elements being visible rather than covered. We want to open the normally black box many pianos currently resemble.

The presence of piano keys adds an instant attraction to whatever form the piano is given, so this creates a lot of possibilities. We expect a goal oriented approach that correlates with our ambition to harmonize with Nordic design, sustainability through the use of natural materials and a fine tuned combination of flawless functionality and "lightweightness". After a solid introduction to certain parts of the functionality which are not to be changed, a phase of experimentation and broadening of the design language we work with will be the main focus of your internship with us.

You are expected to be a self-starter, willing to learn to work with CAD and CNC. This is our field of expertise and we can help you. You will need extensive experience of working with wood, so that you can develop a model of our piano which is not covered in black paint, but will be appealing even when finished in a natural oil. The way we "cover" the instrument is still a big design challenge, and we are looking for different concept developments here.

The work location (Hall of The Odd, next to Kløvermarken, north Amager) is part of a larger start-up community with everything from metal and wood workshops to electronics and event management and stage decoration. You do not have to be at our location always, but we do have an office space for you, to make the interaction more convenient. The product developers present in the company have some experience as well and can definitely be of help.

The main working location (Hall of the Odd): Raffinaderivej 20F, 2300 Copenhagen. If you can start working in the summer, that would be great - otherwise September would be fine too.

We are flexible on the timeline of the internship however we expect somewhere between 6 weeks and 3 months.

Our ideal candidate:


  • is a self starter

  • is student in a relevant education for at least 1 year

  • is proficient in woodworking

  • likes innovation in general and is good at thinking out of the box

  • is not afraid to take initiative

  • knows the basics CAD

  • has an extensive material knowledge and willingness to explore

  • is flexible and eager to learn

  • ideally has some affinity with music

This is an opportunity for you to be a part of developing a brand new product development, apply your skills and see a real impact from your work. If this sounds interesting to you then we look forward to hearing from you.
