What is the Associate Program?

Glad to see you here, reading this text! You must be curious to know more about why you should apply to the Associate Program? The Associate Program is a full-time summer job with the possibility to start working part-time already before summer. You'll get to learn from a bunch of skilled and diligent professionals who don't take themselves too seriously – learn the secrets of digital sales and ecommerce consulting while having a good time with your fellow Roadies!


👉 Start: You can choose your start date! Some start in June, while others might kick things off already in February.

👉 Work amount: Full-time during summer. If desired, part-time already before summer.

👉 Continuation: After summer, if expectations have been met from both ends, there's a possibility to continue part-time while you finish your studies (or full-time if you're graduating).

 Even though the positions above seem quite clear-cut, we’re not looking to box people into set roles. Most of us may have one (or two) deeper expertise areas, but are interested in most of the areas we work on. So, if you’re a designer interested in strategy, or a developer looking to learn more about analytics and marketing, you’ll get the chance to work towards it. We’re free to explore multiple interests within our business domain.
