Internship: IT Data Expert

Start in September or as a summer internship

How does diving into database optimization sound for an internship? As an innovative IT startup, 2DAYSMOOD is seeing considerable international growth! Therefore our databases are in need of a new structure to keep up. Perhaps a master-slave structure with version control? Do you have the skillset to research and implement these changes for us? Then come and join our lively team to gain work experience as an IT and Data Expert, further develop your talents, learn from our IT experts, and to just have a blast at your internship.

Who are we?

We are a team of passionate professionals of various ages and unique qualities. From HR, IT and Marketing, to Organizational Psychology and Work Happiness. We are still small, in the transition of startup to scaleup, but ever more involved in our work and each other! We not only sell Employee Happiness but we of course also invest daily into our own work fun at 2DAYSMOOD.

Our vision

We stand for a world in which organizations flourish through happy employees. In our own academically supported Employee Happiness Model, we have identified 15 drivers that influence employee engagement. Gaining insight into these drivers and the moods of employees is the first step towards a positive and productive organizational culture.

Our product

2DAYSMOOD offers an innovative realtime measurement method of employee engagement and job satisfaction. Not a long-winded boring snapshot like a yearly employee satisfaction survey but a user-friendly weekly 15-second survey. With our smart analytical abilities and an e-learning environment jam-packed with practical knowledge, everyone in an organization can start taking on work happiness. Watch the video to see how our tool works.

What do we offer you?

Our work happiness (with an average of 82%!) is not only held up high by our fun team lunches, ping pong sessions, and the monthly BBB’s (Brainstorm, Beer, and Beer nuts), but also through our flexibility, trust, and development. Just like that, you will have a say in a work-life balance that is most suited for your needs and you will have the opportunity to discover your talents through professional assessment.

Besides that, the startup mentality in our team has many positive sides to it. If you can strategically think within the vision and mission of our company, we will offer you the autonomy to develop and execute your own ideas. You, just like any other team member, are essential for important projects made for customers and our company development.

What do you offer to us? You are…

  • following a matching HBO or WO-study in IT
  • currently in your third or higher year
  • interested in (big) data, databases, analytics, …
  • eager to work with innovative technologies and services (Vue, Google Cloud, AI, …)
  • responsible and have a proactive mindset
  • good at working independently and achieving results
  • fluent in English (preferably also some Dutch!)
  • interested in contributing to employee happiness in organizations worldwide
  • a positive team player!

What will you be working on?

Restructuring the Database

Our Employee Happiness tool and E-learning environment are getting used more by international organizations. For this reason, we have several powerful databases within and outside of Europe. Based on thorough research, you will advise us on the most innovative and smart methods for database structuring. For example, a master slave structure with version control or a far better solution? With the help of our IT-experts, you will then also implement it yourself and deliver on a test version.

Performance Optimization

During your research on databases, you will naturally come across lots of tips and innovations. In the meantime, you will have become a Google Cloud and SQL expert! Of course we like to implement the newest methods to optimize the performance of our database. How do we improve on the speed, big data display, the refresh process, purity of the data, …?

Our (former) interns would also like to say something…

“I was able to learn a lot at my internship at 2DAYSMOOD because I got to work with the newest machine learning techniques. Naturally, I am very proud of the result: a model with nearly 75% precision!”

“It was immediately clear to me that the team lives according to their own advice and theories on work happiness. Independence, trust, and appreciation are key features of the 2DAYSMOOD culture. That motivates me a lot!”

Franziska Israel

Intern Organizational Psychology

“Besides the open and fun team setting, I pulled a lot of satisfaction out of tasks and projects. I created new things with my own input and the impact of my work was immediately reflected by the marketing analytics.”
