At Rockstart every week a lot of events and startup sessions take place. You will be responsible to capture these happenings and edit them into the right context. In this role you will learn about creating promotional videos for important events, and the key role video production can play in the marketing and communication of what happens within a startup accelerator. You will also have the opportunity to develop skills in video editing, shooting video, storyboarding, conducting interviews, and directing. We expect flexibility and a diverse set of skills from your side. You have hands on experience with pre- and post production as well as shooting great video. Experience with Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro is also valuable. Having your own filming equipment like camera, tripod or GoPro would be an advantage. You will be working on this mostly independently on the execution with input on content from our experienced brand & storytelling team.
Big entrepreneurial network
At Rockstart you will not only be surrounded by our team, but also over 150 other driven and talented startup entrepreneurs at Rockstart Spaces (there are over 50+ startups situated here). You’ll have a chance to meet a mix of founders, designers, developers, marketing people and experienced Rockstart mentors. This makes a great opportunity to expand your network in the startup world and get to know all the great new innovations, apps and projects that are being developed here.
As an intern you will never be alone. Since the startups at Rockstart Spaces have their own interns too, and Rockstart works with multiple interns in different roles at the same time, there is a strong, international intern community at Rockstart that likes to hang out and exchange experiences.
At Rockstart we have a great events space (the Ballroom), that is always being used for different eventsyou can join, usually with drinks and snacks provided. As an intern at Rockstart you will even get access to some of the closed events that are, for example, part of the Rockstart Accelerator program. These are normally only accessible to the 10 startups that get selected for the program from hundreds of applications every year.
Did we mention that we’re on one of the most beautiful locations right in the city center of one of the greatest cities in Europe? We’re on Amsterdam’s famous canals, just a block away from Anne Frank House and Dam Square, as well as Amsterdam’s biggest and busiest shopping street. Beside, Rockstart is on walking distance from Amsterdam Central Station.
Food & drinks
Interns at Rockstart get free lunch and unlimited fresh coffee brews and milk foam. Besides, we have a free team breakfast every Monday and drinks (with personal stories!) on Fridays. And then there’s the occasional team dinner or outing.. [😉]
This function requires someone with an entrepreneurial, and creative spirit. You love startups. You are ambitious, driven and a all-round talent. You love to work in a hectic startup environment alongside passionate entrepreneurs. You also love being part of a young, international team.

“For me, the best way to describe Rockstart is to tell you the first thing I was asked when I started: „What do you want to learn?“ Right from the beginning, my internship was about getting to pitch in at what I’m doing best and improving what I wanted to get better at. I learned to refer to my ideas not as an idea, but as a project – something that actually gets done. The free food was nice as well. ;-)” – Alexander Ebhart, about his Community internship in 2015.
