Development intern wanted at young tech company in Groningen

Summer is inching closer while Corona measures are slowly being lifted by the Dutch government. This means it’s time for us to start looking for new communication interns for the coming school semester. The internship is full time placement, the duration can be discussed. Four days a week you will work on Klippa activities, the fifth one is reserved for school activities and assignments.  
Who are we? 
Founded in 2015 and active in countries all over the world, Klippa is a fast-growing IT scale-up. We started out as a start-up specialized in digitizing paper receipts, but we now offer numerous services in document processing. We developed our own OCR technology that allows us to scan any type of document, from invoices to expenses and passports. Did you know that companies on average spend around 52 euros on processing expense claims? Automating these processes saves companies piles of money. Not just that, we can actually speed up document processing by up to 70%. Just imagine never having to fill in an Excel anymore, when asking for a reimbursement for travel costs for instance. Just take a picture of the receipt and within a few clicks, the claim can be processed. Our goal is to get our name out there even more and enter more markets. Our team of about 25 specialists is looking for a communications talent who can help us reach that goal. 

Who are we looking for? 
– A driven IT maniac (not a naysayer) 
– Someone who is eager to learn and wants to try new things 
– Experience with one of the following programming languages: Python, Javascript (Angular), Java & Swift or GO 
– Experience with machine learning is a plus 
– Good command of English is required 

What will you be doing and learning? 
– You will work in a team of 8 developers in Groningen. 
– You will work on improving the interface and/or work on improving the OCR recognition level on vouchers and invoices. 

You will be guided by one of our awesome IT specialists, which one depends on your specialty and focus. Don’t worry, you’ll have plenty to learn from our guys (and girl) in the development team.

What can you expect? 
We are young and ambitious and we want to achieve great things. The common spoken language is English, because we have colleagues from Germany, Spain, France and Egypt, as well as from the Netherlands. 

Being a true Groningen company in heart and soul, our headquarters are located in Groningen, near IKEA. We have another office in Amsterdam, on the tenth floor of the A’dam Tower, which houses part of the Klippa team. The Amsterdam-based employees travel to Groningen on Mondays and stay until Tuesday, to attend the team meeting on Monday evenings and bond with the Groningen team. Expect a lot of hustle and bustle on these two days, with a lot of meetings and lots of opportunity to devour new information. The other days are a bit calmer, giving you the opportunity to get some work done. 

Klippa arranges free lunch in the canteen downstairs, so you don’t have to bring your own sandwiches. Often, they serve wraps, which you can fill with the freshest of veggies, meat and other fillings. Yum, right? In some cases it’s also possible to receive a compensation of 150 euros a month.
