Internship

Leuven

TenForce

Dev for This, I study. Here, I work

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 are creating the new language to talk about the job market in Europe. We call this new project ESCO. Our goal here is to provide a single language for the job market, across countries and across domains. For instance, using ESCO, a university in Romania will be able to connect the learning outcomes of its courses directly to a job opportunity in a Spanish company. We want to demonstrate the power of this new language through real world applications. This is where you come in!

You have probably heard about MOOCs, or massive open online courses. They are very popular these days, but it can be hard to get an idea of what to study next. There are just too many courses out there! In this internship, you will receive a database of skills and occupations, expressed in RDF. You will also receive access to the APIs of some MOOCs providers. Can you figure out which MOOCs would give you the biggest head start for your dream job?
