Job Description

Summer Academy is tailored for students who are looking for a summer job where they can gain captivating experience in the field of their choice. If this sounds like you, keep reading!

If you haven't come across Sievo before, here is a quick overview: Sievo is a rapidly growing software-as-a-service (SaaS) growth company headquartered in Helsinki with offices in Chicago and Bucharest. As the global leader in procurement analytics, we serve over 150 large, multinational companies including Carlsberg, Kellogg's, Levi's, and Deutsche Telekom, among others.

What you can expect from Summer Academy:

  • Hands on work and real-life projects. You will be working on real tasks and projects, so you will be taking on responsibilities, contributing to your team’s success, and able to see your impact.
