Internship

Leuven

TenForce

Dev for iLike Europe

Company description

TenForce is a knowledge-oriented company based in Leuven. We're a dynamic, fast-growing team of about 80 people spanning dozens of nationalities. Our people have widely varying skill-sets and work in an extremely open atmosphere. The company grows with its people, and this year alone, we've grown over 20%. TenForce has offices in Leuven, Brussels, Italy and Germany. These internships all take place at our Leuven headquarters (almost inside the Stella Brewery, a ten minute walk from the train station).

TenForce delivers its added value on the edge between research and implementation. Where researchers stop, our work starts. We provide semantic technology services to governmental organizations, like the European Commission, but also to large corporations. Next to this work with semantic technologies, we reduce paperwork in companies by automating their business workflows.

Join this multicultural bag of knowledge for your student internship! Some of the internships may even have a possible extension through a summer job.

Job description

At Tenforce, we're one of the key players in the Your Data Stories project. A big challenge is making user input trivial. Any European should be able to supply valuable data to their government. We want to make democracy super-accessible. "I want better and more classrooms" or "The party at the youth house last night was great, it helped me to get to know my peers". Ideally, we'll enter this data in a structured way, so we can aggregate the data and provide meaningful insights to our leaders. This project migh be an important steps to a more direct democracy.

In this internship, you will build an easily accessible mobile application. You will help people inform their leaders about small problems, or big ideological issues, in a structured manner. We collect this information and leaders may be informed. Effectively giving us, the people, a collective voice.
