Rockstart is on a mission to build the world’s greatest startup machine. We are looking for a high-potential and ambitious student who is excited about creating a seamless, intuitive structure in a chaotic environment. You know how to work smarter, not harder (ok, you also know how to work hard, and you love it). With your analytical mind you oversee the structures behind how things are done and with your solutions you create perfect execution. You’re not afraid to voice your opinion but you’re also service-minded, always ready to lend a helping hand where needed. Oh, and you love a good curveball thrown your way.
Throughout your internship you will learn how to optimise and refine the internal processes of a fast-growing organization. You will join a young, multi-disciplinary and ambitious team, and will work in an international, dynamic and entrepreneurial environment.
- You will help ensure the internal/backend system and processes of Rockstart run smoothly, efficiently and in a standardised fashion; in addition to constantly being on the lookout to streamline, better structure and optimize these processes. Some of the core tasks include:
- helping manage and optimize our cloud-based tools such as Podio, Trello, Streak to name a few;
- being involved in various projects and seeking for new tools to improve productivity in different business units;
- creating awesome “How to” Guides and keeping operational best practices up to date;
- supporting the employee on-boarding and off-boarding processes by performing tech induction training and managing employee access to various systems.
