General information

4 months

Before we explain the internship, just know that this is what our interns have to say about working at DESelect:

- "You have given me the confidence to achieve everything I want in life"

- "I love the challenge of coming in every day and trying to figure out how I am going to save more marketers' time by writing code" 

- "having fun + serious work = DESelect"

- "Thanks to my internship at DESelect I can now make double as much money working in Turkey"


Do you want to:

  • Apply your coding skills to a real project?

  • Experience what a fast-paced international startup environment is like?

  • Work remotely or in Antwerp, depending on whatever is possible due to covid-19?


Who we are

We are a young team with a strong background in dev, SaaS (software-as-a-service), and consulting. We have a fast-growing SaaS startup with customers all over the world, including USA, Europa and Australia, and are an official Salesforce partner. The product we build fixes an actual business problem we have come to learn through project experience. It makes the life of marketing professionals easier (and it is an interesting problem to solve for us :) ).


So what

  • You will get to learn from seasoned entrepreneurs and devs, who have worked as consultants in many international companies and have built multiple startups

  • Duration and your availability (full-time, part-time,…) can be discussed

  • You will be able to work remotely and also join us at one of our locations in our coworking space in Antwerp

  • You join a young international dev team, with many other interns from all over Europe. 

  • The internship can be part to fill requirements for your degree, or be outside of your degree


What we are looking for

We are looking for developers to join our development team to:

  • Continue building the product:

    • Design solutions for new features with the team

    • Implement those solutions

    • Write test code

  • Support customers using the product


We use the following technologies:


  • ReactJS

  • HTML / CSS / Javascript

  • ES6/7

Besides this, you'll learn about:

  • working with a project management tool (Asana)

  • working with scrum/agile as a project management methodology

  • git

  • Open Source

Good knowledge of ReactJS and javascript is required.


We are looking for people who are:

  • Result-driven

  • Can work independently

  • Speak and write good English


Note regarding remote work

If the situation allows it, we welcome you in our offices in Antwerp.
However,  due to the current covid-19 situation, many on-site internships are currently not allowed/possible. Besides covid-19, there may be other reasons you may not be in a position to come onsite, like not being able to get a visa or simply because of the cost of travel to / living in Belgium. Whatever may be the case, our company is 100% set up for remote work, and we've always had part of team working remotely. Here are some of the measures we take to make sure people who are remote can still be engaged: daily status meeting, lunch break hangouts to talk casually, tea time breakouts, monthly team meetings to have drinks, weekly demo sessions, chat sessions, meetings with team members when you need support/help....



This is an unpaid internship. Though we don't pay you, we do invest in you by providing you access to tools, coworking space and spending time on coaching you and facilitating your learning. If you can get the Erasmus grant, that will cover for the majority of your living expenses.



There is no exact start or end date for this internship position. We are flexible. However, we don't do internships for less than 3 months, simply because of the time it takes to ramp up new team members.


After the internship

We have a history of hiring people who do internships with us. If we're happy with your work, it's possible we offer you a freelance contract to continue working with us remotely, part-time or full-time, whether you graduate or are still a student.
