Love all things 3D Printing? Have some fresh ideas? Want to join a successful and international team? Shapeways Operations Eindhoven might have the internship for you!
We're seeking someone to join our 3D Printing teams. Your mission? To help bring 3D Printing out of the prototyping era and into the future. Transforming our current operation to a full-scale, lean manufacturing operation. It's an incredible opportunity in an industry whose rules have yet to be fully defined.
You will fully integrate to the team running all relevant aspects of an industrial 3D printing operation and by this see a virtual model getting created into its final physical customer ready object. Next to this, you will take on an improvement project depending on your skill set or interest and work with the team to advance our 3D printing operation to the next level.
Past interns have changed the raw material handling process, performing lean process analyses and flow improvements, optimizing our production planning algorithms, etc. Basically, it all depends on how your skill set can best be utilized.
Our intern program is open to students from dutch schools or universities, preferable local ones.
