Research / Thesis internship - Concept team

Kryha is a blockchain product studio headquartered in Amsterdam. We have been working with industry leaders (Fortune 500) across the globe, bridging the gap between the cutting-edge world of distributed technologies and enterprise innovation. Our multidisciplinary team consists of digital industry strategists, product designers, and software engineers. We drive sustainable industry change by designing & developing products to align stakeholders and streamline industry collaboration towards a better future. Think of products that show the sustainability performance of your suppliers to ensure responsible sourcing or trace plastics through their life cycles to improve recyclability.

Take this opportunity to perform your thesis or research internship at a company experienced in technical innovation, advanced product development, and managing complex supply chain ecosystems around sustainability. Propose your own assignment if you feel there is a fit with our company. Or formulate an assignment together with us that suits your interest and our business. Example assignments we can talk about are:

  • Propose a new solution for the traceability of products in multiple lifecycles to incentivize circularity.
  • Evaluate existing solutions for the traceability of materials and/or products throughout an entire supply chain, and develop a new solution to improve industry collaboration.
  • Develop a product for sharing Environmental, Social and Governing performance with the required and accepted level of confidentiality (e.g. respecting industry dynamics).
  • Shape an approach to leverage design and prototyping in our business development activities targeted on an international level.

During your internship, you will join the Concept Team, consisting of business, service, and UX designers. The challenges for this team lie in tackling the complexity of ecosystems and contexts we do projects in and the involvement of multiple stakeholders with different needs and desires. While you execute your own assignment, you will take part in these challenges and learn from them.

What we are looking for:

  • Profile: Curious, critical, assertive, go-getter, analytical, creative.
  • Background: Bachelor/Master in Industrial Design Engineering, Digital Business, Entrepreneurship & Innovation, Sustainable Development, or anything similar. However, feel free to apply if you have another degree and you are convinced this thesis internship is a fit for you.
  • Language: Fluency in English (must), Dutch, French, Portuguese, or Mandarin is nice to have.
  • Duration: Around 6 months, depending on university requirements.
