Always wanted to work on the edge of innovation and have a positive impact by making the internet a better place? Then this might be something for you👇

🧬 About Simple Analytics

Simple Analytics was founded in 2018 by privacy enthusiast and software engineer Adriaan van Rossum. It's a privacy-first alternative to Google Analytics that is cookieless by design and does not collect any personal data. We provide our customers with the information they need regarding their website while preserving the privacy of internet users.

To put it in plain English: Most businesses have websites, and to check their website statistics, most companies use Google Analytics. This is a free product, but it comes at a cost. When you install Google Analytics on your website, Google tracks your website visitors and reuses your visitors' data for advertising purposes.

We feel this needs to change, and we are not alone. Since 2018 the GDPR has come into effect to protect internet users' privacy. However, Google won't change because selling your data is their business model. Hence, there is a growing need for companies that do it differently.

🤩 The Challenge

Our product is never finished and as our growth accelerates we want to improve our product with new features as soon as possible. You'll be working directly with the founder, Adriaan, an experienced software engineer who built Simple Analytics by himself. 

To get an idea of what we are trying to accomplish, you can check out our public roadmap for the implementation of new ideas and feature requests. You will shape our product and create more value for our customers in your role.

Adriaan is a big fan of JavaScript. Most of our software is built in Node.js, Vue.js, and Nuxt.js. We have web apps, browser extensions, iOS & desktop apps (swift), and many plugins for CMS's and frameworks. Take a look at our public repos.

In addition to shaping the product, you will get the freedom to work on projects that you feel will impact our business. Your input is valued, and you will be an integral part of the team during your internship.
