Paid internship – International Expansion Assistant

Paid internship Twigsee

Who are we and what do we do?

We are Twigsee, a startup digitizing pre-school education by connecting parents and teachers through mobile apps, and in a large-scale administration we handle over 80% of their administrative agenda for kindergarten management in a few clicks, automatically. This saves time, money and energy for all parties and frees up teachers to focus on what matters most, our children.

Where are we and where are we going?

We have over 10,000 families in about 200 schools in the country using us, over 500,000 assignments have already been processed through the system, and thousands of photos flow through our apps every day. Fortunately, we do not perceive that digitalization in education is a hot topic alone. We were included in the Innovators20 ranking (TOP 20 most innovative Czech companies of 2020), we won the Women Startup Competition 2021, and we are currently incubating in two accelerators – CzechStarter from CzechInvest and ČSOB StartIt..

However, the Czech Republic is just the beginning for us. We are currently piloting in the Slovak market and in the coming weeks we are going to test dozens more around the world. We want to test market fit and establish ourselves in ten more markets within a year. And you can help us do that.

Find out more about us here and what’s been written about us here.

What will you be working on?

Our founder Vanda is personally in charge of international expansion and you will be her right hand. Together you will look at the market potential, prepare analyses of the markets and local competitors, devise appropriate go-to-market strategies. But it will also be a lot about contacts – you’ll connect to dozens of interesting people from all over the world, arranging synergies and collaborations with them. As soon as the covid-situation allows (and hopefully soon), you will go on a few business trips together to selected countries. This will give you an insight into the world of business, startups, and how to do international expansion in several countries at once. It’s going to be a ride. Vanda will mentor you and you can learn from her.

What form will the internship take?

This is a paid internship of ideally 20hrs/week (can be adjusted by agreement). We are based in Prague, Karlín and you will have your own place. There is never a lack of great coffee, something good to eat and drink, shisha, a great team and a lot of fun. Operationally it is possible to do part of the agenda remotely, i.e. remotely from anywhere. We will set weekly tasks and goals, very soon we would like to give you free hands for your own creative ideas. The duration of the cooperation is at least 6 months, but if everything fits, we will be happy to extend it or even offer you a permanent position in an international team dealing with expansion.

Who are we looking for and what do we offer?

Ideally university students in fields such as international relations, diplomacy, international business, etc. We are looking for self-reliant people, young leaders who want to learn fast but also can quickly get their hands on very interesting agendas, meet high level people from all over the world, travel to conferences and business meetings. You definitely need to have good organisational skills and ideally not be afraid to think a bit “outside of the box”. Perfect Czech/Slovak and English is a must, basic computer skills and technology orientation are probably a no-brainer. We are more about soft skills than what you can do – we will teach you what you need to know. For the internship we offer 15.000 CZK / month, we can arrange to cooperate via OSVČ or DPP. In addition, if you work quickly, we will take you on a few business trips abroad or conferences.

Are we looking for you?

Send us your CV and a few words about your motivation. We look forward to hearing from you!

What are the preschools
currently using Twigsee saying about it?

Zuzana Vacíková

Twigsee caught our attention right away from the presentation thanks to the range of functions offered. It wasn't a system that only dealt with attendance or just the registry. It offered us the opportunity to have everything under one roof. And the cherry on top of the cake was the possibility of sending parents contributions about how their children are doing in preschool that day. Parents liked the app very quickly. At first, teachers were more concerned about whether preschool management wanted to give them extra work. However, they soon discovered that writing to parents made them happy, and they also finally have an overview of the children's attendance for each day. Twigsee can handle all that is on the agenda in a preschool as well as accounting. Forest preschool, Pohádky z.s., Zvole

We have just started using the Twigsee application, as I was drawn in by an offer. Especially the time saving. I can use my time more meaningfully with my children rather than doing administration. I appreciate the professionalism of the team. Mr. Med answered all of our questions. I was impressed by the enrolment process of new children, attendance and, above all, the connection of teachers with parents, which does not disrupt them from their work with the children. Before signing the contract, we compared the offer of similar applications and came to the conclusion that Twigsee provides the most comprehensive offer of services for preschool needs.

We have been using the Twigsee app in our Fox Nursery for over a year now. Through the app we communicate important information to parents. We share photos of the children's daily activities, and we use surveys, to which parents respond more quickly than in person. We have an overview of how many children are coming on a given day, so we can plan and adjust the day's schedule. Parents especially like the app because they have instant information about what's going on in the preschool, they can see lots of photos and they can excuse their child for the time they need in a few clicks. The Twigsee app is responsive to the needs of our preschools and is quick and easy for teachers, nannies and parents to use. With the Twigsee app, we are simply moving with the times.

Twigsee is a wonderful app that has made communication between the preschool and parents faster, more convenient, and better since we began using it at the beginning of the school year. Also, it unbelievably simplifies the work of employees. Everybody, including the parents, are happy with the app.

Twigsee is a great and innovative app for me as the preschool’s headmaster as well as a mother. There’s finally an app that eases the workload of administrative duties for the MŠMT (Ministry of Education) as well as the MPSV (Social Security) for everyone. It accomplishes all of this in a very easy to use and intuitive way. Communication with the Twigsee team is superb. They were always happy to answer all of my questions about the app and its functions whenever I needed it. As a mother, I value daily, easy-to-view information about my child so that I am informed about what they are doing and have access to information from the preschool, teachers, and administration. I strongly recommend the app for all administrators and parents!

We’ve finally disposed of all signature forms for all applications and online photo galleries, and parents no longer forget about school activities. Parents know what is happening at preschool and are much happier and at ease. We’ve stopped needing to constantly explain and repeat the same things. Thank you.

Twigsee won us over from the moment we started using it. It allows us to manage everything in our preschool in a convenient and easy-to-view manner, all in one place. You’ll love Twigsee because it will make your administrative tasks easier and will make communication with parents faster and more effective. It will not only make your teachers very happy but also the parents! I also greatly appreciate the wonderful support from the Twigsee team which is always prepared to handle our questions and requests. In short, I can wholeheartedly recommend Twigsee without hesitation.

While I was a bit skeptical at first, we have been up and running with Twigsee for a month and a half now without a single problem. We have over fifty reviews from parents and every one of them is positive. Furthermore, parents have started to appreciate all that our teachers do for them and they’ve not only decreased their demands, but have started asking how they can help. They donate toys, company gifts, or homemade Moravian honey. We are happy and are ordering Twigsee for our other location in Průhonice.

Our preschool Malvína has been using the Twigsee app for over half a year. It is a big help to us. Thanks to the child’s profile, we have an easy-to-view list of all their important information. Also, with Twigsee, communication with parents is more convenient. We can share photos with them and using posts, share important information with only selected parents. Not needing to inform each parent individually has saved us a significant amount of work. What we appreciate most about the app, is the easy-to-view attendance. It shows the number of present and excused children and also, alerts us to any children leaving after lunch. Our school highly recommends the app. The team of people who developed the app are definitely professionals in what they do. They responded to all of our questions quickly and are always available to assist us.
