Use big data to help solve the world’s wastewater problems as a data science intern at AquaReg

Are you a data-savvy student with great problem-solving skills? Are you passionate about solving some of the biggest challenges that the world is facing? Would you like to join a young and dynamic team and take part in shaping the future of a water startup?

At AquaReg, we combine wastewater data from a range of sources to provide an overview of wastewater challenges. We map wastewater from 100,000+ factories in Europe and North America and use this knowledge to match the best solutions with the biggest problems – and we need your help.


About the internship

As a data science intern in AquaReg, you will be part of a small team, so you will have many different responsibilities, including:

  • Identifying and analyzing relevant data sources, e.g., regulatory data, online databases, satellite imagery, water prices etc.

  • Building the interface from new data sources to our database

  • Assisting in frontend design

  • Running queries on our database for clients

  • Other ad hoc support


The internship is full time and is planned to start in January/February/March with a duration of a minimum of 12 weeks. We are flexible in terms of your studies/specific requirements.

Our offices are at the vibrant NIRAS Green Tech Hub in Allerød where we sit together with other startups – we expect you to be physically present at least two days per week.


Your qualifications

  • We expect you to be studying IT, economics, data science, computer science, engineering, business or similar – possibly as a bachelor in engineering (diplomingeniør) or Academy Profession Degree (professionsbachelor).

  • Strong quantitative and qualitative problem-solving skills

  • A foundation in data analysis and experience with programming (we use Python to a large extent)

  • Self-driven and able to plan and execute complex analyses independently

  • Curiosity and an interest in sustainability (we don’t expect you to have in-depth knowledge about our subject matter when you start)

  • Excellent written and oral communication skills in English

  • At AquaReg we do not always know what tomorrow brings, so an ability to handle uncertainty and a can-do attitude is a must


About AquaReg

At AquaReg, we believe that the better we understand a challenge, the easier it is to solve. So we map wastewater data for 100,000+ factories and sell data and insights from our data platform to our clients.

We are trying to create a culture of truthfulness and transparency – so we expect you to speak up and let us know when you think an idea is terrible. We care deeply about professional development and about being explicit about our personality types as well as our respective strengths, weaknesses and development areas.
