Job Description

Ready to jumpstart your career this summer? Now is your chance to apply for Sievo’s legendary trainee program: Summer Academy!

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 (T-Mobile), 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.
  • Career opportunities. Summer Academy takes place approximately between May and August. After Summer Academy, you could potentially join us in a part-time role or even become a full-time Sievonian.
  • Amazing people. Our greatest perk is Sievonians! You will work together with talented and caring people in a diverse environment representing over 39 different nationalities.
  • Hybrid working. We'd love for you to spend some time in our new office which is in an amazing location (no kidding, just in the heart of Chicago). That said, we also recognize that you may want to work remotely at times, so we’ll be flexible in that regard.
  • FUN. No one wants to miss out on all the fun during summer, right? Be prepared to have a blast with your fellow Summer Seals! We've got a bunch of events and hangouts coming up to make sure you have an unforgettable summer.
  • Academy runs roughly from May-August depending on your academic demands

Sounds great so far, right? Below are listed our open positions for the summer, so don’t hesitate to choose the one(s) that spark your interest and send in your application! Your major or years of studies are not a deciding factor here, so we appreciate if you explain why you would be interested.

Data Engineering Specialist

In this role you will

  • Together with your team members and the clients, develop an understanding of the clients’ procurement analytics needs
  • Work with a combination of Azure, Microsoft SQL, Microsoft SSIS and Sievo’s own proprietary integration tools
  • Build the data integrations and migrations required for Sievo applications and be able to document and communicate the process cross-functionally within the Sievo team
  • Investigate and understand clients’ data on the cloud, on-premises ERPs
  • Interface between Sievo’s integration field and customers' IT and project team
  • Interest in automating processes, genuine ETL enthusiasm, and intermediate SQL skills and Azure / cloud fundamentals are considered as an advantage

Implementation Consultant

In this role you will

  • Develop an understanding of our customers’ procurement analytics needs together with them and your team
  • Design Sievo applications together with the rest of the Sievo team to match those needs and configure the applications
  • Get your hands dirty in SQL databases, QlikSense and work with the Sievo application tools
  • Seek opportunities to add value for our customers and grow Sievo’s business by keeping up a dialogue with our customers’ super users and project teams
  • Prior experience in using and/or enthusiasm to learn technologies such as QlikSense and SQL is considered as an advantage

For all the roles it’s great if:

  • You are in the mid–to-final stages of your studies in Engineering, Technology, IT, or Business field
  • You have fluent English skills
  • You have the courage to question things: we believe development comes from challenging the status quo
  • You’re not only looking for a summer internship, but instead a place where you can feel belong, learn, and grow

Great! Then apply through our recruitment system by March 31st. Please specify when you would be able to start. We will review applications during the application period and invite potential future Summer Seals to an online interview in early April at the latest.

A small hint to stand out in the application: Our hiring team loves details. So, besides your CV, you might want to provide a cover letter and/or a short video of yourself.
