Machine Learning PhD Internship at Booking.com

What we do

At Booking.com, data drives our decisions. Technology is at our core. And innovation is everywhere. But our company is more than datasets, lines of code or A/B tests. We’re the thrill of the first night in a new place. The excitement of the next morning. The friends you make. The journeys you take. The sights you see. And the food you sample. Through our products, partners and people, we make it easier for everyone to experience the world.

We are currently recruiting PhD students who will have the opportunity to join our Machine Learning Summer Research Internship Program based in our headquarters in beautiful Amsterdam and our Machine Learning center in Tel – Aviv.
