Summer Internship 2020
Isn’t it time you did something for yourself?
We think so, too. That’s why we want you to come Be Your Own CEO at Unacast.
At Unacast, we believe that unlocking the black box of human mobility data is the key to advancing innovation. That's why we’re building the Real World Graph® to provide a truly transparent and accurate understanding of the real world.
It's literally uncharted territory, which means a sense of adventure is a must. Want to come along?
We are hiring Summer Interns to accelerate our efforts within data exploration and delivery. Your role will actively contribute in improve existing and new products, ensuring high data quality on both supply and demand side, data scoring, fraud detection, and incorporation of new data sources. You will work closely with our team of data scientists and data engineers.
Your main hub will be our spectacular Oslo offices on Karl Johan and the suggested work period is from late June until mid August with a couple of weeks break in July.
We run our technical stack on Google Cloud, and you will get the chance to work with Google’s cutting-edge technology BigQuery, DataFlow, Cloud Functions, and AppEngine. Data exploration and visualization will mainly be done notebooks. We're not demanding that you have experience with these tools, all we ask is that you are willing to learn something new every day.
To us, innovation is the ability to tackle the challenges we don't currently know we have before someone else does it. For that reason, we acknowledge that we need a diverse team with different background and experience.
We want to give you a chance to show off your abilities with a small work sample. It should not take more than a couple of hours to complete and hopefully you will learn something along the way.

You should submit the SQL statements used to extract data together with visuals that present your answer in a user friendly way. Google Colab or Jupyter Notebooks can be a good format.
