Working student

~12 hrs/week - The Hague, Netherlands

Help us develop technology that feeds the world

AI is revolutionising agriculture at a fast pace. From farm to fork - every link in the value chain will become data-driven. VanBoven plays an important role in this transition by providing vegetable farmers with the tools needed to develop accurate harvest predictions. This information is crucial to producers, distributors, wholesalers, industry and retailers in order to optimise the value chain and reduce food waste.

VanBoven develops harvest predictions based on high-resolution aerial imagery. Our algorithms identify every single plant on the field and extract physical plant traits using object-based image analysis. By tracking these traits over time we create predictive models for plant growth and time to harvest. And we can use some hands in doing so!

How you can contribute

We are rolling out this service commercially in our "launching vegetable": broccoli! We cover about 40% of all Dutch broccoli acres in the 2021 season. This is a huge step for us, and it means we can use some support to manage our daily business.


In this part-time student job you will assist our management with several of their tasks. You will work directly with our founding team to take over a range of smaller tasks from them. You will become responsible for part of our internal processes and make sure everyone in the team can do their day job as effectively as possible. Your role is flexible and diverse and will give you an excellent perspective on the startup life.

  • Be in touch with our management team and help wherever you can
