Webador is looking for a software engineer for a graduation internship
At Webador, you can count on an interesting and challenging graduation project. And far from ending up at the bottom of the pile, the results of your work can actually help determine our company's success. So if you're looking to make an impact, you're in the right place!
We've doubled our customer numbers every year for the past 3 years, giving rise to new technological challenges. Both our founders have backgrounds in computer science, and we're truly a technology-driven company. That's part of the reason we've featured in the Deloitte Fast 50, a list of the 50 fastest growing tech companies in the Netherlands, for the past 3 years! Despite our growth, we try to keep our team relatively small and make as much impact as possible individually.
As an intern or graduate student, not only will you work on your own assignment, you'll also get the chance to further yourself wherever your interests lie within our company. This is a great opportunity to learn a lot in a short time, and there's a real chance you'll be offered a job with us once you've graduated.
A bit about us
With Webador, small business owners and hobbyists can easily build their own professional website - no web designer necessary. With more than 64,000 enthusiastic customers already subscribed to our professional service, our goal is to help 250,000 entrepreneurs create an online presence they can be proud of by 2026.
A graduation internship at Webador
As an intern or graduate, you'll work primarily on your main assignment. In addition to that, you’ll have the freedom to join project meetings, for example, so you can get some insight into how we work.
You'll help us work on developing our system, and your project will lead to an improved experience for our customers. Working with a modern stack, you'll also focus on your self-development as a software engineer. Our professionals will guide and coach you to ensure the success of your assignment or research.
After receiving a warm welcome from our young and ambitious club of 30, you'll become an important part of our development team, where you'll work with colleagues who are adept at writing great software.
What you can expect
There are plenty of interesting challenges and ideas for graduation projects at Webador. We're happy to work with you to organize a project that both fits our needs as a company and lines up with your personal learning goals and areas of interest. We'll do our best to ensure you can work on developing something we can launch within the scope of your graduation internship.
We can brainstorm about: research into a new feature, our apps, devops, machine learning, our API, and privacy and security. We're also open to suggestions! Here are some examples of concrete assignments you can take into consideration:
- Newsletter. We can help the small business owners using our platform to gather an address file and send emails to the addresses. That requires collecting email addresses via forms, managing the address file in our back office system, and possibly even sending mail.
- Public API. We currently have an API for a group of private companies, but ideally we’d open this to the public. This means app developers must be able to sign up independently, the API will use more resources from our application, etc.
- Machine learning. We currently use our own heuristics to learn what a customer is worth to us. This is manual work, which costs us more and more time, and we may be missing important attributes in the process. The question is, can this be replaced by a smarter model? Possibly/probably based on a neural network machine learning setup.
