Emil Morønning Ruud started as an IT- intern at Rebartek in December of last year.  He has now been working with us for a few weeks, so I sat down with him to get his thoughts on the experience so far.

In order to get the word out to students, Rebartek runs ads on kompetansetorget, a platform that connects students at the University of agder and employers. But Emil found us the old fashioned way: -the jungle telegraph.

-I found you through one of your other interns, Nicolay, he says.

Tempted by the tech at Rebartek

When asked about his descision to work for us, he is quick to answer:

-What tempted me the most about working here, is all the tech that is integrated in the work you are doing; Machine vision, robotics and AI, amongst other things.

In our team, Emil contributes with his skills in programming.

-At the moment we are mainly using Python as our programming language, but we might need to expand on this front at some point.

Doing something that’s never been done

Emil says he finds the other members on the team very eager to help each other, and he explains why that is crucial in a startup like this one:

-We are doing something that hasn’t really been done before. So, understandably no one really has the exact expertize for the interdisciplinary development we’re doing. So we need to try things out all the time. But this also means that you’ve got a job where you are constantly gaining skills.

You don’t need to know it all to be an intern

Emil says he encourages students to apply for an internship at Rebartek, and points out a common apprehension students might have:

-People are often scared that they don’t have all the skills that are important in an intern position. But that really doesn’t apply here. We just need people that have some base-experience or skills in one or more of our fields, and then your job as an intern is to learn as you go.

Rebartek welcomes Emil, and we are looking forward to seeing him develop along with our team.

Rebartek attending Slush 2018 Helsinki

Rebartek will be attending the Slush conference 2018.

Slush takes place on December 4–5 in Helsinki, Finland.

In addition to attending the conference, Rebartek has been accepted to join the pitching competition Slush 100.

Slush 100 Pitching Competition is organized to help the ones that are in the very center of Slush – the early stage founders. The pre-qualification rounds take place on Dec 3, 2018, and the founders with the best pitch and potential continue the competition at Slush, on the grandest stages in front of thousands of visitors. The award ceremony for announcing the winner will be the culmination of Slush.

The winner obviously receives great attention from investors, media, potential partners and future team members – not to forget the prize which will be announced later on. However, each of the 100 early-stage startups receives invaluable feedback, invitations to exclusive events with the most relevant people and, of course, stage time at the event.

Rebartek founder, Max Trommer will be taking the pitching stage. He is excited to meet both potential investors, employees and look for potential cooperations.

About the conference

Held during the darkest time of the year in Helsinki, Finland, Slush has always been characterized by a unique energy and enthusiasm. The very core of Slush is to facilitate founder and investor meetings and to build a world-wide startup community.

Slush is a student-driven, non-profit movement originally founded to change attitudes toward entrepreneurship. In 2018, Slush will be organized in Tokyo, Shanghai, Singapore and Helsinki.

We hope to see you there!
