Student projects

Would you like to gain some real-world experience? Earn some money, learn new stuff, meet nice people, and end up landing a job offer even before you finish university? Then join us!

“We consider ourselves life-long students. Everyday, we strive to learn something new, increase our knowledge, or tackle new challenges. In this spirit, we are keen to help students to enhance their skills with real-life experience, and maybe find a topic for their bachelor or master’s thesis.”
Zita Pivcová, Showmax HR manager

We are not listing any boring, general projects. We would like to know what you want to work on. We keep our doors and inboxes open, so don’t hesitate to bounce any idea of cooperation off us. We will gladly discuss it, outline it, and do our best to put it into practice and welcome you among us to work on it.
Email us at students@showmax.com.

Showmax Anniversary party 2021Showmax Anniversary party 2021

In the past year, we partnered with BEST Prague to prepare the spring Unit Hackathon for the Czech Technical University (ČVUT) students. We also became a partner of the Matfyzák club where we organise cultural events for Matfyz (MFF) students. Soon, you can meet us at the Matfyz Hackathon organised by Matfyz Developer Student club, at the ball, and more.

If you have an idea of an event you would like to organize and are looking for any kind of company support, let us know.
