Why choose an internship in technology?

For the interesting and varied work …

You come into contact with businesses in different branches of industry and are involved in many different kinds of projects. Our client is of course central to the whole research process, and we expect total and enthusiastic commitment from every staff member to bring each project to a successful conclusion. This will sometimes call for ability to cope with stress, but also gives great satisfaction if we can help our client with the outcomes of our research.

For the opportunities that are offered ...

As an intern, you become part of one of our teams; a team lead is in charge of day-to-day follow-up and coaching; your internship supervisor is an experienced professional who oversees your progress and prepares interim appraisals and a final appraisal.

You get the opportunity to gain experience in all aspects of the development area (FrontEnd, BackEnd, QA).

Inside our organization, you will get a chance fairly quickly to take responsibility (depending on your skills and progress). You can also take advantage of our internal training programme.
