High Potential Program

Ready to kick-start your career?

Are you about to graduate from your study or deliver your PhD? We are looking for recent graduates with a passion for data that want to kick-start their career with one of our paid traineeships. If you enjoy bringing data to life, consider yourself technofile (love using latest hardware and software), and want to solve interesting organizational problems, then test your skills with our challenge. We offer two extensive programs, in the form of a 1-year traineeship - Big Data Engineering and Data Science & A.I.

Our 1-year traineeship will prepare you to face any challenges that come your way by working with real-live data sets in a professional organization. During this year, you will work as a trainee at one of our clients (4 days a week) and at the same time follow various technical trainings (and develop soft-skills) at one of our offices (1 day a week). By the end of the traineeship - in which our experts guide and assess your work - you will be highly skilled and employable by the client.

Do we have your attention? Choose the program you are interested in and fill out the form. If you are selected to proceed, within 2-3 working days someone from our team will contact you for a short conversation. If we think there is a match, we will invite you to our Amsterdam office (together with the other participants) where there will be fun challenges to complete as well as food and drinks for everyone. The challenges will be related to the program you are applying for and the aim is to test your skills and see what is your thought process.

Important dates to remember:

  • the closing date for all applications is 10th of January, Wednesday, at 17:00 PM.
  • the challenge will take place on the 18th of January, Thursday, and you will be expected to be there at 09:00 AM.
  • the program starts on the 1st of March, Thursday.
