What we do

We are The Discov. The world's first unbiased digital study counsellor, using data to facilitate an optimal match between student and university. Our beyond-the-classroom matchmaking solution ensures students go to a university that meets all their needs, and universities receive students that thrive.

Our matchmaking platform solution provides unbiased, data-driven study advice to students based on their academic interests, but also their non-academic preferences, personality, budget and lifestyle. Our algorithm considers all English-taught programs at all universities (currently in the Netherlands) and is thereby completely independent from any individual higher education institution.

During this internship you will work directly with the co-founders as an equal team member to lead and support the activities of the company. You will be given a lot of space to develop and the freedom to drive your own projects. Activities include:

 

  • First point of contact for student communication

  • Support and train our AI-driven study consultant

  • Analyse trends on customer behaviour and provide recommendations for improvement

  • Manage and improve marketing campaigns, including advertising, content development and website development
