Intern Software Engineer

Netherlands, Noord-Brabant, 's-HertogenboschTechnology

Job description

Every semester we are looking for 2-3 qualified HBO/University students to join our technical team, make a significant contribution to our technology, and learn and develop themselves. As a Software Engineering intern you will help us build a technology startup that is somewhat like a bank, without being one. You're working on a machine that is sending millions of euros around daily and is helping entrepreneurs to grow their business by providing business loans. You’ll be working on improving and expanding the core platform of Floryn, as well as experimenting with new ideas.


Some examples of past internships:

  • Create a social media miner that uses public data and APIs to gather information from platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn and Google.

  • Build a new overview dashboard that shows the status of a customer in one view to end users.

  • Set up a new transaction classification algorithm with modern NLP techniques that improve the performance of our current algorithm.

  • Launch a new platform for intermediaries and investors where they can log-in and view the status of their leads and investment in real time.


Technology

We have a technology neutral mindset to engineering and believe in well-tested, robust code. We love open source but are not religious about any specific language or framework. We work with modern open source technology such as Ruby, Rails, ES6, React, Redux, PostgreSQL, Docker and AWS. Our Data team uses Python, Spark, Pandas, Looker and more. We are using Machine Learning models in production and are managing all of the infrastructure around these models that is needed for them to perform well. We’re big on continuous integration and deployment, automated testing and kanban, pull-based processes.


About Floryn

Floryn is one of the fastest growing fintech companies in the Netherlands. We aim to be the most responsible, scalable and customer-friendly online lender in Europe. We’ve lent out over € 200 million since inception (2016) and have processed over € 2 billion in transaction volume. We're located in a monumental building in the city centre of 's-Hertogenbosch that also houses the Jheronimus Academy of Data Science (JADS). We are with around 50 people, split over Development, Data, Risk, Marketing and Sales.


The technology that we build plays an essential role in everything we do, so we work with a fully in-house development team. Building great stuff is what drives us and quality always comes first. Our technology has a major impact on businesses and people. Our organisation is flat and communication lines are short, so we can move quickly. We don’t have code monkeys. Instead, we give you a problem and trust you will come up with an outstanding solution. We believe in sane working hours and long-term solutions, instead of 70-hour work weeks with temporary workarounds. We do things our own way, we ship code every day and we take pride in our work.


Job requirements

  • Studying at a HBO/University in the field of Software Engineering.
  • Some experience with programming outside of school is a bonus, for example as a side job or for your own projects.


Perks

  • Good internship compensation of € 750,- per month.

  • Free daily ‘bourgondische’ lunch at the office.

  • MacBook Pro and all high-end gear that you need.

  • Many team activities, from drinks to sporting events.
