Adidas (ICE)

About Us

The adidas brand has a long history and deep-rooted connection with sport. It’s broad and diverse portfolio in both the Sport Performance and Sport Inspired categories ranges from major global sports to regional grassroot events and local sneaker culture. This has enabled adidas to transcend cultures and become one of the most recognized, credible, and iconic brands both on and off the field of play.

At adidas, we see endless possibilitiesahead of us.

Our identity is defined by our purpose, our mission, and our attitude. 

Our purpose, ‘through sport, we have the power to change lives’, guides the way we run our company, how we work with our partners, how we create our products, and how we engage with our consumers. We will always strive to expand the limits of human possibilities, to include and unite people in sport, and to create a more sustainable world.  

Athletes do not settle for average. And neither do we. We have a clear mission: To be the best sports brand in the world. Every day, we come to work to create and sell the best sports products in the world, and to offer the best service and consumer experience – and to do it all in a sustainable way. We are the best when we are the credible, inclusive, and sustainable leader in our industry.

At adidas, we are rebellious optimists driven by action, with a desire to shape a better future together. We see the world of sport and culture with possibility where others only see the impossible. ‘Impossible is Nothing’ is not a tagline for us. By being optimistic and knowing the power of sport, we see endless possibilities to apply this power and push all people forward with action.

After one match the next round is already waiting. That‘s how champions are born, always eager for a new challenge. Thus we invite you to test your strengths, broaden your skills and most likely pursue your passion for sports and lifestyle by co-creating the future within an internship at adidas. We want to learn from your external view of the world and hear your individualized input. If this sounds like a win – we are looking forward to hearing from you.
