Reference Tristen: Onboarding Specialist at New10

Tristen works 2 days a week @ New10 next to his Masters in Computational Science.

“Last summer I decided I wanted to gain more experience in business. Exactly at that moment, I was approached by Studentflex. Normally you prepare yourself for a job interview in a substantive way and in terms of capabilities, but at Studentflex it was more on a personal level. I was positively surprised by this. After the interview, I still had some doubts because I didn’t know what to expect. Within a couple of days, I got a call about a vacancy at New10 and it turned out that they hit the mark at once. I have been working as an Onboarding Specialist at New10 for almost a year now. New10 is exactly the kind of company I was looking for: an open culture without a clear hierarchy. There is a lot of room to pick up projects and set something up yourself. This job helps me further in ways that I missed out on when I was a student.”

Tristen is also taking part in the Talent Development program of High Potential Academy (the subsidiary of Studentflex).

Reference Take: Screening Operations at Adyen

Take works 2 days a week @ Adyen next to his Bachelors in Social Science.

“During my bachelor’s, I was looking for a part-time job where I would be able to learn something. A friend recommended Studentflex to me and it went very quickly from there. I especially liked the support, the relaxed atmosphere and the approachability during the interviews and telephone conversations with Studentflex. From the perspective of my studies and interests, I was not engaging with the financial sector. That’s why I started looking into the company, talked to others who worked there and spoke again with Studentflex about Adyen. This all gave me more motivation. Currently, I’m working as Screening Operations and I mainly check payment details. At our daily meetings, and in general, our feedback is often requested and our own initiatives are highly appreciated. I notice that due to the open culture at Adyen, I express myself more quickly about things and that this is also encouraged: this gives willpower and self-confidence. I also have an extra task: I work as a Teamlead for the part-timers at Adyen for Studentflex. To maintain the strong link between Studentflex and Adyen!”

Reference Gijs: Conversation Automation Developer at Ciphix

Gijs works 2 days a week @ Ciphix next to his Bachelors in Computer Science.

“During the final phase of my Bachelor Computer Science at Delft University of Technology, I was looking for a part-time job. A job where I could already orientate on my master. I came in touch with Laura from Studentflex. Laura made an effort to find a job matching my interests for artificial intelligence. I am working at Ciphix as a Conversation Automation Developer. I spend my time automating projects for different clients. I mainly focus on building chatbots. When building chatbots I make sure that different tasks are automated: from making appointments to answering difficult questions. I quickly got my own projects, so I have a lot of responsibilities. It’s cool to work with people who all have the same ambitions as you. In your studies you often have an assignment that you have to work out but you don’t really make a product. At Ciphix you are actually the bridge between the company and the technology. Because of my job at Ciphix I know what I want with my master and besides, I know for sure: I want to start my own company.”
