The opportunity

Our Accenture Interactive office in Amsterdam is looking for an intern to join our Design & Innovation team.

Who we’re looking for a… a Leonardo Da Vinci, a Nicolaus Copernicus, a creative powerhouse, a polymath…

  • You’re a creative mastermind, you can easily conceive new ideas and solutions to the most wicked problems, you love thinking abstract and on a conceptual level.

  • You’re a rebel and troublemaker, you don’t take things for granted and want to push boundaries, you’re daring and by default challenge the status quo by asking critical questions and challenging assumptions.

  • You have an entrepreneurial spirit and want to take things further; you want to bring about positive change and have the drive and desire to make a big(ger) impact on people and planet. You watch Steve Jobs’ Stanford speech at least once a year.

  • You’re familiar with the venture or startup design process and methodologies such as lean startup, blue ocean strategy, business model innovation, etc. TechCrunch is your 2nd (online) home. Innovation your native language.

  • You have a strong feel for design and can visualize ideas into various forms of (digital) art ranging from sketches to storyboards and from low-fi designs to hi-fi mockups. At some point in your life, you considered joining an arts academy… your parents think you’re the next Picasso (and you can’t blame them).

  • You’re well-versed with new (emerging) technologies (AR/VR/AI, Digital twins, etc.) and understand how they can make a positive impact on people, society, and the planet.

  • We don’t expect you to be the next Jordan Belfort but you easily articulate the choices you’ve made in the creative process and sell/pitch your creative ideas, concepts, products and prototypes to an audience.

We only consider candidates who have a design portfolio or a showcase.
