Build the world’s best chat platform at a startup


TalkJS is an Eindhoven-based tech startup. Our product lets online marketplace businesses add buyer-seller chat to their sites with zero effort. We're a small team of 4 but we'll be growing during your internship. 

Our product is highly focused at a fast-growing niche and we're currently growing superlinearly. Nevertheless, we have a fun and relaxed working culture with full mutual trust. This works because we're all highly proactive and we're all able do get things right, fast, at the first try. We expect the same from you


Don't write a report that ends up in somebody's drawer. Make your internship count and graduate at a startup! Come do your internship at TalkJS, a fast-moving tech startup in Eindhoven. We offer ridiculously much freedom, a great working culture and a challenging results-driven environment.
TalkJS the messaging platform for platforms. Apps and platforms on the internet use our product to let users communicate with one another. Because our product is embedded inside the products of our customers, we need to deliver fantastic quality for both the developers and managers at our customers, as well as their users. This makes TalkJS an extraordinarily challenging place to work. You, the intern, can be a significant part of that.
At TalkJS you can help work on core product features that touch thousands of users worldwide. We work in a fast Agile process and release new features every week. Unlike many internship positions, we don't want you to sit in the corner and work on something separate, something less important. We want to give you a taste of real decent high-speed programming at a small (but growing) company of experienced programmers.
Does that sound like you? Depending on your interests we can tune the internship in a particular direction, and give it a big encompassing theme so you can easily show your supervisors what you accomplished.


We offer a challenging environment and we're looking for students that like to be challenged. You have *at least* the following skills:
- You're comfortable in at least 2 programming languages
- You have some experience making web applications
- You're fluent in English
Our tech stack is currently based on JavaScript, ReactJS, Elixir, Phoenix and PostgreSQL. It is no problem if you don't know these languages as long as you learn quickly.
