Internship: Software Development
INTK is an ambitious studio based in Utrecht (25 minutes from Amsterdam). We are specialized in developing digital strategies for cultural organisations.
Our mission is to change how people relate to culture. Forty years ago very few people sported on a regular basis. Today, many people dedicate several hours a week to sports. Inspired by the changes in the sports sector, we would like to bring a similar change to the culture sector. Our goal is to encourage people that love culture to engage in cultural activities on a weekly basis. For example, we want to encourage people that love cinema to go to the movies every week.
We work with several museums, theaters, film houses, castles, libraries, festivals, etc. Some of the cultural organisations we work with include, Guggenheim Museum, Stadsschouwburg Utrecht, Film Theater Hilversum, Loevestein Castle, Bibliotheek Utrecht, Le Guess Who festival, etc.
What do we do?
We work on a combination of three products: ClapApp, Ada, and CultureCab.
ClapApp - Personal assistant for your cultural life
Every city needs an app that allows you to see all the cultural activities available. It should work like Deliveroo, Uber eats, etc. You should be able to browse the cultural agenda of your city, buy tickets, and schedule events together with friends.The app will need to have a database with all the cultural activities. There are two approaches to getting that database. We have an army of people copy/pasting all cultural activities into the database or automating the process.ClapApp will be your assistant when it comes to your cultural life. It will alert you when there is a new movie from your favorite director or a new concert from your favorite band.
Ada - Amazing Digital Assistant
Online marketing is growing bigger and bigger. All cultural organizations could use a marketing assistant. The assistant could automatically create presentations with the marketing results, automatically create campaigns and write monthly reports to be sent by email.This full-stack project allows you to work with data, APIs, REACT, etc.
