For a better working life

For a better working life

XING Summer School Intern (m/f) - Big data project

XING is the social network for business professionals with millions of members all over the world. Help us shape the future – for a better working life! We are currently running the application phase for our summer internship program (mid of July – mid of October 2017) at our headquarters in Hamburg.

A challenging project ahead

XING has a large range of products - not all of which are relevant to all our users at all times.

From user research we know that there are clearly separable needs of users they would like to fulfill with our products. Identifying programmatically which user has what needs is a tough problem. The start page team is interested in solving it in order to not show everything to everybody.

Your internship deals with identifying needs of particular users to give them a more specific user experience. We want to focus in identifying a small number of clearly described needs rather than trying to build a huge model that tries to explain everything.

An inspiring program alongside

An onboarding boot camp, intense methodology and soft skills training, networking events as well as career guidance will round off your experience with us.

No matter whether your internship is voluntary or mandatory, we will pay you €1,540 per month.

We are hiring

  • Digital natives with drive and special interest in big data and/or machine learning
  • Communicators (English fluency) and interactors
  • Learning animals leaving their comfort zone
  • Enrolled student (B.Sc./M.Sc.) in Computer Sciences or alike
  • Graduation in 2017/18 is a plus

An inspiring environment

XING offers a dynamic environment located in the center of Hamburg. As well as flexible working hours, you’ll have an opportunity to unleash your skills and acquire new ones.

We also provide free drinks and organic fruit as well as a Proficard public transport ticket and restaurant vouchers. You’ll also be provided with high-end IT equipment, and our offices have table football tables. If you’re feeling really sporty, we also have great gym deals, and various other benefits….

If this program matches your expertise, experience and aspirations, we would be delighted to receive your full application including your field of interest during your summer stay with us.

Our program starts on 17 July 2017, and the closing date for applications is 31 March 2017.
