Planning your internship
1. Through school or university
Some schools or universities make their own selection of internships and offer that selection to their students. This mostly also implies that the procedure to follow is well-defined and explained to you by your school or university. In that case, please apply using the procedure in place.
2. Contact us directly
Take a look at the list of our internships on offer and monitor your heart rate. In case of a higher pulse, immediately take action and apply for the internship by using the contact form displayed in each and every internship detail page.
3. Got a great idea but nowhere to pitch it?
Contact us and convince us of your idea. It could just be that we are discussing and brainstorming about your idea over a cup of coffee in the days to come. No idea has ever proven to crazy for our taste, try us!
You leave a lasting impression
Internships are not only tremendous opportunities for yourself to gain knowledge and experience, also ToThePoint is still enjoying the results of some of the previous internships as well, certainly those that yielded a lasting realisation, which in the meantime are widely known within (and outside of) Cronos.
- The Wall of Fame, the most notorious of them all, an interactive video wall, built without using a single monitor, composed of 54 Logitech RGB gaming keyboards and 27 Raspberry Pi’s comes to mind.
- What to think about a virtual reality control room in which you – as a network administrator – put on some VR goggles and find yourself standing right inside your Google Kubernetes cluster, and even puts you in full control of killing and spacing pods using your laserpointers… yep, an internship to remember and to be proud of.
That is the kind of inheritance we’ve got in store for you when you get to do an internship with us.

A contract proposal as proof of the pudding
The saying goes ‘the proof of the pudding is in the eating’, well, the same goes for our internships. Whenever we spot our own drive and passion in you, in other words, whenever we detect a DNA match with your professional attitude, we’ll gladly invite you into our family. If you on your end, recognise your own values, vision and ambitions in our DNA, we stand a fair chance of eating delicious pudding indeed.

Stand firmly and well-fed
Don’t underestimate to importance of filling your tank and oil your motor to keep it running smoothly. We’ll surely help you out in that area as well, read on (and learn how you can stay in bed for just a little longer ;-))
Don’t get up earlier to prepare sandwiches?
Nope, food for thought aside, we foresee a plethora of bread and fillings and a couple of days a week you’ll score fresh salads and soup as well. You can just enjoy a great lunch.
Having a slight dip during the hard work?
Don’t fret, just head over to the cookie drawer. There’s also fresh fruit for the more health-conscious.
The best news is that we offer you all of the above for free.
And also, no need for you to get up any earlier (that might probably be the absolute best news of all?).
