Job Description

This is Roos

Roos is a mobile first digital assistant for consumers who oversees your fixed charges contracts such as insurance, energy, telecom and much more. The Rose app helps you keep track of your current contracts in one place, gives smart tips about your contracts that really help you, and let you know when it's time to buy in action. At Roos, you can extend your contract, transfer or let you know that you do not have to do anything because you are already well. This will save you a lot of time and money every year.

Roos is located in an exciting market with many international developments in Germany , and the insurance market , Sweden , the UK and US and wants to become the most important local player in this field.

The team behind Roos is small, but with many years of experience in the market and the ambition to grow into the most important player in the market. Our office is located between many other start-ups and entrepreneurs in the Hackers & Founders building at the corner of the Herengracht and Vijzelstraat in the heart of Amsterdam.

Research assignment

Roos is an innovative way for consumers to get advice on their fixed-cost contracts, to spend as little time as possible and to connect with our users' preferences and conditions. Some developments in AI, chat bots and visual UI that Roos would like to bring along in her developments are:

    • Can we develop a system with AI that makes suggestions based on the information provided by our users?
    • Contract information is provided in pieces through photos or contract entries, how can we use a chat bot to get complete information from the user about current contracts?
    • Can we use Visual UI in a conversation with the user to learn more about his / her preferences outside of the "hard" contract data?
    • How can we contribute to reducing consumer stress in the overall overview of energy, insurance and telecom contracts?
    • How can we develop a smart conversation based on user input, triggers and notifications and advice that are separate for each user.

We have room for a number of students to work out with our above challenges and eventually test with Roos in the market.
