Software development Traineeship


Ready to launch your career?

Make the difference at RTL. We were the first to introduce commercial TV to the Netherlands in 1989. That pioneering spirit is still a strong part of who we are to this day. We serve our viewers vital stories that touch both hearts and minds, 24 hours a day, on all channels: TV, digital and social. An example is Videoland, which we work on with a passionate team of tech and digital experts. It’s our answer to the American tech giants, with a local flavour. With Videoland and our other digital activities, such as RTLXL, Buienradar, a network of YouTube channels and various programme websites and apps, we’ve now expanded to become one of the biggest players on the digital market.
