Unpaid internship
We will have ongoing recruitment on this position. Whenever a spot opens up, you will hear from us.

Have you ever wished you could play Football Manager in real life? Well this is a crazy co-incidence: that's exactly what our scouting team at Tonsser does. The best part? They're looking for an intern to join their ranks. 🔎

What does that mean?
Excellent question. Tonsser isn't a game: it's reality. We're the leading football app for youth players in Europe, and we are all about the next generation of footballers. We think that football is an opaque industry in which disruption is well overdue.

Our app helps to create a player's football brand: take Linkedin and Instagram, then put on a pair of football boots. Players update their stats, vote for Man of the Match, and get endorsed for their performance. Players then can build a brand around themselves with media uploads, and interacting with their community.

What does our Player Analyst team do?
Our Player Analyst team's mission is to give as many opportunities to as many players as possible. We use our data to find potential talent: irrespective of who you are or on what level you play. This isn't just to find the next Ronaldo who slipped through the cracks: it's for everyone who wants to take a step up in their football career.

What will you be doing?
Locate Top talents, by using our in-house database, plus researching the players coming through the various youth national teams and top leagues.

Build up the list, by calling the coaches of the discovered players to both validate their data and hear about other potential players in their team.

Acknowledge Talent, by telling the players that we are now looking at their performance due to their hard work and talent + validation of Team of the Week and Rankings.

Reactivate old players, by reaching out to players who used to use Tonsser, and tell them about the new matchmaking abilities we now have.

Onboard new players, by explaining the value of the product to the new talent, so they understand why they need us and why they need to input their stats on Tonsser. 

Who are we looking for?
English-speaking, driven candidates whose dream is to kick-off their career with us from our HQ in Copenhagen, where exceeding expectations is rewarded and where a mistake is never so big that it isn't treated as learning. We value the kind of person who we can rely on and who makes people around him/her better or happier, whichever comes first. 🤙
