About the program

Program set up

The Dafiti Training Program will take you on a two year journey of hands-on experience, training, and personal growth.

You will be assigned to two different departments according to your area preferences and department needs. You may challenge your creativity in the Marketing Department, develop your analytical skills in the Financial Department, manage against key performance indicators in the Business Intelligence Department, or get your hands dirty in the Operations Department!

We want to arm you with range of experiences across departments, enabling you to more fully understand Dafiti's business and effect positive change within the organization.

You will also spend two weeks in Berlin, learning from Europe's biggest business incubator and Dafiti investor, Rocket Internet.

In the second semester of your second year, you will work directly with one of Dafiti's Vice Presidents or Directors. This will be the final step before the next move in your career: assuming a senior role within the company, leading people and managing projects!
