Product Design & User Experience – Internship

We are a young DeepTech start-up based in YES!Delft that develops kinetic energy harvesting technology and an IoT product for digitalization of trains.

We are looking for an ambitious and enthusiastic student who is interested in an internship or graduation project in helping us develop this predictive maintenance use-case.
