  • And most importantly, a super educational internship at a sustainable scaleup where you can really make an impact!

Application process

We'll call you first for a brief telephone introduction. Because let's face it, a job posting is just a job posting and a resume is just a resume. We both care about the person(s) behind the nice text. We have two interviews, the second of which is a more extensive assessment of about half a day. Reference checks and (online) assessments are part of the procedure. We like speed in the procedure.
