Do you understand the value of a good user experience? Are you looking for a challenging and rewarding internship? Then we might be looking for you!
This internship offers the possibility of redesigning eXtractorONE completely. This application makes it possible to download data from any webservice (REST/SOAP) or local XML/JSON file into a relational database in MS SQL Server (local/Azure). There is no coding or modelling required for the end-user, this is all included in the back-end of the software. It’s an application for extracting external cloud storage, social media, business intelligence metadata, open data, etc. However, the front-end could use a complete refresh.
What you will do:
In this internship, you will have to start by doing research into user experiences; what is the right flow to create a happy flow? What is the best way to design in order to create a memorable user interface, that feels natural and pleasant? We are looking for an easy to understand, simple to use interface, that nevertheless holds all functionalities of this rather extensive software.
Your daily activities:
Every morning starts off with a team meeting; we like to know what everybody’s up to as this allows for some brainstorming when one of us gets stuck on a problem. We’re a small team and try to help each other where possible. This not only means that we’re standby to help you, it might also mean that we sometimes enlist you to help us think of solutions or (technical) designs. Your day mostly consists of working on your project independently, with a lunch break consisting of a walk around the lake next to our office building. Together we will schedule regular meetings to ensure your internship is successful.
