About the position

The company
Ideaology is a young innovation bureau based in Eindhoven. At our company, you find Innovators with Ideals. We offer design services, new product development activities and other innovation related advice and support to organisations. We are strong in multidisciplinary work, experience and innovation knowledge. In order to be of supreme service for our clients, we use specialists as well as multidisciplinary creatives when necessary.

The project
Ideaology is also part of a collaboration between companies, in which we develop a new innovation for sustainable energy production. The innovation may be disruptive. We have a focus on thermo-electric flexible technology embedded in or applied on textile. 

 The R&D work is ongoing. We have been doing R&D work regarding filaments and patterns to identify technological options to integrate the technology in the experiment.  In addition we are researching areas of opportunity: which applications adress customer needs best? We are working towards making prototypes in which we use the technology to explore how the technology can add value and how it can be used in combintion with other technologies for example smart textiles. 

The internship position
We believe you can make a contribution in our multidisciplinary project! And we will be able to learn you a thing or two about developing a new product. Sounds good?

We are able to place one person who has a background in:

– Textile Technologies/ Innovative Textile Development

It is a plus if you also have some experience with:

– Fashion Design or Smart Textile Development

-Prototyping (for example sketching, 3D printing, material exploration, electrical engineering, testing etc.)

– Design research (for example user research, market research, value propositions, product development preparations etc.)

We work on the cross section of design, business and technology, and so will you. This results in a variety of exciting activities. Do not expect coffee-assistant kind of work we want you to do actual research, design and/or engineering work. The position offers a safe environment in which you can gain working experience.

You will be involved in the day-to-day innovation activities and therefore experience working on various tasks in a real design and development setting. These may also include general input, creative activities, experimenting with materials and design work. You will be part of the team. In addition you will get a mentor to regularly discuss your learning goals and progress. This is a learning position and not a paid job.
