Über iversity

Wir… 

sind ein junges, dynamisches und internationales Team, machen etwas Sinnvolles und bieten spannende Herausforderungen. Wir sind gut vernetzt und haben u.a. an der Freien Universität, den Technischen Universitäten in Berlin und Dresden, UC Berkeley, der University of Cambridge, der Hertie School of Governance, der National University of Singapore und der Columbia University studiert.

Was genau? 

iversity bietet Studierenden und Lehrenden eine hochschulübergreifende Plattform (www.iversity.org) und vereinfacht die Kommunikation in Forschung und Lehre. Wir wollen die bewährten Interaktionsformen der Universität nicht abschaffen – wir wollen sie bereichern und verstärken. 

Akademische Arbeit ist selten an einen Ort gebunden. Deshalb hat iversity ein cloud-basiertes Netzwerk geschaffen, mit dem Lehrende und Studierende sich über Hochschulgrenzen hinweg austauschen können. Bei einem Hochschulwechsel bleiben die eigenen Materialien und Kontakte erhalten und in der Community ergeben sich wertvolle Netzwerkeffekte. Lehrende und Studierende können iversity unabhängig oder neben den existierenden Lösungen ihrer jeweiligen Hochschule verwenden – kostenfrei!

Seit dem Relaunch der Plattform im Herbst 2011 haben wir Tausende neuer Nutzerinnen und Nutzer gewonnen. Und deswegen auch während der Semesterferien jede Menge zu tun.

Wann? 

Ab Februar fortlaufend. Flexibilität hinsichtlich Arbeitszeiten und Praktikumsdauer.

Wir bieten… 

• ein spannendes, ambitioniertes Projekt. 
• ein junges, motiviertes Team. 
• ein attraktives Arbeitsumfeld. 
• eine Vergütung (250 – 400 Euro). 
• ggf. Projekte für Abschlussarbeiten. 
• größeres Interesse an deinen Fähigkeiten als an deinen Abschlüssen u.a Formalitäten. 
• u.U. die Möglichkeit, nach dem Praktikum als freieR oder festeR MitarbeiterIn weiterzumachen.

Fragen, Interessensbekundungen und Bewerbungen direkt per E-Mail an Simon Lange: jobs@iversity.org.

Wir freuen uns auf Euch!

Internship positions at iversity

Marketing

 You are not just creative, but you are also able to get a deep sense of satisfaction from looking at an Excel-Sheet that is big enough to wrap Big Ben with and that still ‘just works’? You would like to be involved in rolling out a revolutionary and fun product in Europe and beyond? Ideally you have press contacts and first organizational and research experience, yet you are willing to put up with some grunt work as well (at this point we all have to be). If so, join us in Berlin to conquer the world! (Oh btw: Don’t worry, with us you may mention the war.)

Product Development

You can sqaure the circle of executive ideas, the design requirements and the time budget of the development team? You can translate the different inputs into clear product specifications and you know how to squeeze ideas into the product development plan? Excellent! Or don’t you really know how all of this is supposed to work, but you would like to learn about it? That’s also good. What should drive you in either case is the desire to build the dream-product you missed when you were at uni/in school (depending on the side of the Atlantic you’re on).

Executive Assistant

You have an open mind and ideally have been interested in the education sector as well as the dynamic development of digital technology for a while? You don’t just know about Twitter and TED, but also Quora and the Chronicle? You are well-connected and you know how to communicate with executives in the private as well as the non-profit sector? You would like to know how this works: ‘building a company’ from the strategic to the nitty-gritty? In that case we are looking forward to hearing from you

Software Development

Back-end Developer (RoR)

Knowledge in object-oriented software development. First experience with the Ruby on Rails framework as well as relational database systems, such as MySQL or PostgreSQL. You should strive to write elegant, readable and testable code that can be maintenanced easily. 

Front-end Developer

You are able to transfer specifications, wireframes and mockups into well-structured semantic markups? You know contemporary web standards and maybe even HTML 5, CSS3? Great! Knowledge of as well as experience with JavaScript and libraries such as jQuery and PrototypeJS would be an additional asset.

 

About Iversity

We are a young and dynamic team that is working on a project with a purpose. We want to build a new infrastructure for teaching and learning at the dawn of the digital age.

Our team members have held positions with online and offline media, in marketing and communications departments, software development, strategy consulting, and academia in Germany and the US.

iversity staff were educated at professional schools and research universities including Freie Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Hertie School of Governance, National University of Singapore, and Columbia University.

latform by integrating existing services over APIs.
