IST Trainee 2018

Are you trying to figure out what to do, now that you’ve finished studying? Are you one of those who believe it’s possible to do some good on a daily basis, that the work you do can be a part of some greater good? Are you curious about how technology can be used to make a real difference?  

 At IST we believe personality is just as important as skill. We have a busy time ahead of us and we need the right people by our side us as we continue our journey, making sure everyone learns more. 

 Maybe you are one of our 2018 trainees? 

 About the program

You will participate in a 12-month program which combines working at IST with attending learning modules and delivering a strategic brief on creating an innovative service/product. You will have a skilled and experienced personal mentor throughout the entire program.

 The learning modules will be designed and customized based on real needs that will prove valuable both to IST and to you, e.g. what we want to learn, what skills are needed to deliver a successful strategic brief, what trends are essential to understand and much more. 

 You will hold a permanent full-time employment from day one, meaning after the program has finished you will be able to continue exploring and developing your career within IST. You will also rotate to another department for a period of time during the program and get the chance to get to know colleagues, ways of working and the general lifestyle of another IST office.   

What are we looking for?

We continuously need new expertise, new insight and new perspectives to stay ahead and to remain our customers’ first choice. We expect you to be deeply passionate about innovative technology, design thinking, creative research and sharing your knowledge with others. You need to want others to succeed.

We think your profile looks something like this: 

·  You hold a M.Sc. in computer science, engineering, media or similar.

·  You have a maximum of two years’ work life experience after graduation.

·  You have a strong will to explore, create, develop and innovate.

·  You are comfortable to work both individually as well as in a group of other skilled people.

If you are one of those who acquired your skills and knowledge from own projects, working rather than studying or from just being passionate about programming and development – we want to hear from you too! If you think IST is the place where you want to contribute and create greatness – let us know.

There are 20 positions within the program and there is no last date for applying, but we will assign the positions continuously so please get in touch with us as soon as possible. The recruitment process consists of four different steps, involving several interviews and tests.
