Business Development Intern

Nice to meet you

We are PEAX, an AI startup in the Food & Flower industry. Our customers are innovative breeders, growers and food & flower distributors. You can find a number of our customers with accompanying cases on our website.

We are looking for a Business Development Intern to join our Food & Agri team. Be part of this journey, read on!

Eager to be part of a journey in which we want to revolutionize one of our most vital industries? Interested in improving the way we produce our food and flowers and distribute it over the globe? Enthusiastic about data science, machine learning and AI and the impact these technologies have to our world?

About the internship

Our mission is to bring data and AI-technology to organizations in the Food & Agri industry, assisting businesses in raising their standards of excellence. Innovations in data science, machine learning and AI have a revolutionary potential for the industry, but are currently not readily accessible to these organizations due to the lack of knowhow and experience. By sharing our knowledge, guiding organization strategy and delivering solutions we want to bring innovation to these businesses and enable them to create a sustainable future. 

We are looking for a Business Development Intern to be part of our team. As a new kid on the block, we need to put ourselves on the map and make sure that everyone in the industry knows we are here for them. You will help us to convert our services into products that we can offer to new clients. Jump in the AI revolution, help us shape these products. You will be actively involved in setting up marketing campagnes and reaching out to clients.

Given the early growth of the industry we are in, your hands-on mentality and curiosity enables you to adapt swiftly and grow along with the company.

During this internship you will definitely learn a lot, plus you will get a feel of what it is like to work at a startup environment. This means getting a lot of freedom but also having someone by your side to fall back on when you have questions or when things get more challenging.


  • You have a creative and commercial mindset 
  • You are open to get in contact with existing and new clients, to ask their opinion and feedback on our services and products
  • You are eager to be part of a small commercial team that focuses on becoming key player in our field 
  • You are comfortable working in a rapid-growth environment with shifting priorities

Your profile

  • You are currently in your third year of International Business (hbo/wo)
  • You are curious by heart, able to take action & step in with confidence
  • You demonstrate an interest in artificial intelligence, the future of food & agri and the future of work in general
  • You are fluent in Dutch and English
  • You are flexible, stress-resistant & comfortable with working both independently or in a team
  • You like going out of your comfort zone when needed, working in a rapidly evolving environment
  • Having skills in social media is a plus
