Your new job and office

Join the AI for Retail Lab at Ahold Delhaize to develop your skills into building our AIRLab proposition!


Your internship

Your responsibilities would include communications activities in support of the AI for Retail Lab (AIR Lab) at Ahold Delhaize. At the AIR Lab, new technological solutions are explored and developed, and talent is attracted, developed and retained. Your day to day work would consist of: writing articles, editing videos, publishing content on our website, internal and external (social) media channels, research & analysis, supporting event production and some project management activities. 


Your new office

Ahold Delhaize is one of the world’s largest food retail groups, a leader in supermarkets and e- commerce, and a company at the forefront of sustainable retailing. Our family of great local brands serves more than 54 million shoppers each week in the United States, Europe and Indonesia. Each brand shares a passion for delivering great food, value and innovations, and for creating inclusive workplaces that provide rewarding professional opportunities. Our brands have also established meaningful, lasting commitments to strengthen local communities, source responsibly and help customers make healthier choices. 

You will find your new workplace at our AIR Lab. The AIR lab has locations in Delft and Amsterdam, but you will be based in Delft, the Netherlands. This facility is an expansion of Ahold Delhaize’s AIR Lab in Amsterdam and has been created in partnership with Delft University. The focus of the lab is to research the future of robotics and develop state-of-the-art innovations in the retail industry. However, due to COVID-19, we currently still work from home as much as possible.

You will work with a hybrid team (researchers, colleagues from different internal departments) to help us out communicating through our various channels. Check for example!
