Internship Algorithm Design

Job description

Internship Algorithm Design

As the Algorithm Design Intern you will have an important role in Helloprint’s Pricing team. This internship is so much more than the average regular internship: you will get to work on projects that bring big impact to the entire company. That’s the kind of responsibility you want to kick-start your career with!


With 13 international web portals and over 1 million unique products this will be nothing short of a challenging internship. You have the skills: how can we best implement our pricing strategies? How can we optimise margins? During this internship you will learn all in’s and out’s of the Pricing business and, before you know it, you will be able to answer all these questions yourself. You will have access to our extensive database of cost prices, competitor prices and sales data. This will form the basis for the pricing algorithm that will be used for the different target groups, to test our strategies and to implement them. Pricing is one of the most important factors for the growth of Helloprint and therefore this internship is extremely valuable for you and for us.

What you do

  • You will create a new price generating algorithm that outperforms the existing one;
  • You will develop insights as to how to tune the algorithm’s parameters;
  • You will learn how to implement pricing strategies and will be able to do that yourself for all our international websites;
  • You will make sure that our prices will differentiate us within the market;
  • You will collect information on developments within the market and compare this with our product offerings;
  • You will work on different projects that improve the scalability of our pricing tooling and pricing models.


What we are looking for

  • You are currently enrolled in a Master in Economics, Econometrics, Operations Research, Mathematics or Physics and you are the best of the class; please note that being enrolled throughout the entire internship period is a hard requirement!
  • You are available full-time, for 5-6 months - we only do hands-on internships with pricing specialists who are totally committed to the job. You can do your research with us, but writing your reports should happen during your own time;
  • You have excellent analytical skills and you're data oriented;
  • You have strong programming skills in at least one language, preferably R, Python and/or PHP;
  • You have experience in designing an optimization algorithm;
  • You have affinity with pricing and are eager to learn everything there is to learn about this topic;
  • You are fluent in English.

What we offer

  • A fast-paced learning curve: you get big challenges instead of tasks to work on, which makes you learn faster;
  • A unique challenge at one of Europe’s fastest growing e-commerce companies;
  • A compensation in line with the market, including a bonus arrangement for exceptional outperformance. Because when we win, we win together;
  • A unique culture with 21 nationalities, an average age of 28 and an environment where freedom and responsibility are central;
  • Opportunities to grow, even into our Leadership Team. We don’t look for age or background, if you are extremely good, you will grow quickly;
  • The best office in Rotterdam, right on the ‘Witte de With’, the coolest street in Rotterdam. Only 5 minutes away from Rotterdam Central Station;
  • Compensation for travel costs;
  • Don't worry about food, that's on us; not only lunch, but also breakfast and dinner. Enough to keep you going all day;
  • 24/7 access to our gym;
  • Seriously: the best business bubbles, Team Events and our own HelloSkybar™, do we need to say more?
