Job description

Brainial’s SaaS solution turns unstructured data into actionable intelligence. Our international client base is growing rapidly, and that is why we need an NLP Intern with experience in Python to join our team.

  • We also really appreciate an intuitive understanding of business problems

Soft skills:

  • Authentic and ambitious
  • High degree of personal motivation
  • Deep care for end users and their experience
  • You are transparent, honest and eager to learn new things and technologies

  • Steep learning curve: you can experience a challenging and exciting career, faster than possible.
  • Daily lunch, team activities and Friday afternoon drinks

What working at Brainial is like:

Take your bike, train or tram, or just walk to our office at the Utrecht Science Park. You determine your own starting time at Brainial, but at 9:30 am, we have a daily stand-up meeting where everybody shares their deliverables for the day.

Brainial has a flat organizational hierarchy, you won’t get bureaucracy, beating around the bush and bs. In our environment, your ideas are highly valued. We offer a wide array of perks to help our employees find an ideal work-to-life balance. We’re all about increasing productivity by maximizing joy!
