Inspiration

Catching up with former strategy intern Thibault

Thibault interned with us mere months ago, so we really wanted to hear what he had to say about his experience working here.

Catching up with former design intern Maarten

Some things are so nice you do them twice. Maarten De Roeck, for example, joined In The Pocket as an intern ten years ago, then came right back for more. Today, he is our product design lead.

Catching up with former dev intern Lukas

Lukas is just one of the many great interns that stuck around after spending a couple of months with us.
