“My advice is to apply! If you’re even a bit intrigued, forget the reasons why you wouldn’t get hired. Think about what you have to offer, and more importantly, what Reaktor could offer you.”

Say hello to Noora. She joined Reaktor as a summer trainee in 2021.

“Reaktor has a strong culture of knowledge sharing, and you cannot avoid learning new things about tech and consulting on a weekly basis. For me, that’s a pretty good reason to send an application.”

Can I apply if I’m not based in the Netherlands?

Unfortunately, we are not offering relocation and visa support for this position. You need to be eligible to work full-time in the Netherlands. It also helps if you are located within a comfortable commute from our Amsterdam office in the Jordaan as a lot of the work will be carried out on-site.

I’m under 18 years old. Can I apply for a trainee position?

Unfortunately, not yet. Currently, we employ trainees over 18 years old only. However, we encourage you to keep on honing your programming skills and apply once you’re a bit older.
