About UNSense

Meet our team

The UNSense team is made up of highly experienced people, all of whom are motivated to make a difference in the intersection between technology and the built environment. We work with people from architecture, urban design and technology backgrounds to gain the best insights into human behavior and how a space can adapt to this. Our approach is research and data driven social impact and this is reflected in our team. What binds us is a strong vision of the future of the built environment and a determination to make that future happen. UNSense is based in the Freedom Lab Campus, a crossover innovation hub in Amsterdam.

Internship - Design Technology

Are you this creative tech savvy designer affiliated with architecture, urban and experience design. Then working with us might be interesting for you.

We are currently seeking an intern (minimum 1 year, intern salary paid) to assist in research and design tasks. Throughout the course of the internship, you will be expected to research technology trends, brainstorm creative solutions, and visualize concepts through diagrams, 3D modeling, and illustrations.

While applications from all backgrounds are welcome, we will prioritize those with a strong design background (architecture, interaction design, UX design, industrial design, et cetera.) and familiarity with technology trends in the built environment. Those with skills in data science and analytics, coding, and research are especially encouraged to apply. Above all, we are looking for creative thinkers that are able to think outside the box to create innovative concepts and solutions.

We are a young company navigating through a rapidly changing market. As such, we are looking for someone that is comfortable with uncertainty and willing to learn new things quickly. You will be part a small self-steering team. Therefore high levels of independence and the ability to conduct self-directed research and time management are required. You will alternately work at two inspiring locations in Amsterdam: UNSense/UNstudio collaborative workspace (Stadhouderskade 115) at the heart of the Amsterdam Pijp and the creative hub of Freedom Lab (Plantage Middenlaan 62) in the city centre.

We are looking forward to receiving your CV and motivation letter!
