Are you a maker? We build open, fair and inclusive software.
Do you believe we need to ensure accessibility of technological infrastructures for all people? That we need smart solutions ensuring our privacy, managing our data and identity in distributed ways? Then join our code team at Waag Society.
Waag Society—institute for art, science and technology—is a pioneer in the field of digital media. We explore emerging technologies, and provide art and culture a central role in the designing of new applications for novel advances in science and technology. The organisation concerns itself not only with technologies related to the Internet, but also with those related to biotechnology and the cognitive sciences. Artists, designers and hackers know better than anyone that they must question technology in order to get to the bottom of things, overthrow sacred cows, stimulate imagination and fantasy, create unexpected connections, and—above all—search for meaning.
In our projects we practice open, fair and inclusive development of technology. Our projects focus on distributed forms of data management, on co-creating mobility solutions in urban areas, on measuring our local environment (air, water, sound) and visualising results. We investigate distributed approaches and create infastructures that promote privacy and allow for anonimity.
We are looking for coders that adhere to these values and want to help us create impact by building open software and tools. We have several multiple year program lines on which interns can collaborate. Our lab structure also allows for your own projects, as long as they are in line with our values.
What do we offer?
We offer a three to six months internship (time period is negotiable), in which you will work between 24 to 40 hours per week. You will join our code team at Waag Society, consisting of one back-end developer, two front-end developers, a system architect, a project manager, two programme developers and a head of program. Interns receive a stipend of 300 euro a month (based on a 40 hour per week contract).
