Actyx AG

Business Development Working Student (m/f)

Factory software is incredibly valuable and important. Building it, is exceedingly difficult. Actyx is solving this problem. Our Industrial Application Platform, based on a peer-to-peer data dissemination architecture (think Blockchain for Data), allows developers to easily build and run powerful data-driven applications. This helps factories answer operational questions and increase performance. Over the last 2.5 years Actyx has grown to a team of 25 absolutely outstanding people, raised over 4 million EUR and was installed in multiple factories.

We freshly created the business development team to incubate functions that are relevant for growing the business, such as marketing. For this new team we are now looking for a smart and ambitious student to drive forward Actyx’ growth and shape the business development way of working at Actyx from Day-1.
