You’ve likely heard about self-driving cars. Perhaps your parents have a Nest. Maybe you own a FitBit or an Apple Watch. Smart, connected devices like these are part of a new and rapidly growing industry called the "Internet of Things" (IoT), which is expected to grow to trillions of dollars over the next 10 years as 50 billion devices are brought online.
Aeris is at the forefront of the IoT, building networks and applications to enable Fortune 500 clients like Chrysler, Honda and Bosch to design innovative new product offerings and fundamentally improve their businesses. Headquartered in Silicon Valley with offices in Chicago, London, Delhi, and Tokyo as well as other markets, we rank among the top ten cellular providers for the IoT globally.
Our company is in an enviable spot. We’re profitable, and both our bottom line and our global reach are growing rapidly. We’re playing in an exploding market where technology evolves daily and acquisitions happen left and right. We have a unique opportunity to pay our success forward by providing a one-of-a-kind learning experience to a handful of talented college students interested in learning about our industry, and about technology startups in general. We’ve designed our internship program to expose underrepresented students to career opportunities in the industry. Students from all schools, and students who identify with a group that is currently underrepresented in the industry (including but not limited to Black, Hispanic, Native American, female, transgender, students with disabilities, and more) are all strongly encouraged to apply.
We’re offering a 10 week, full-time engineering internship that will run from either May 21 - July 27 or June 25 - August 31, depending on the student’s school schedule. All interns will be provided with a stipend, paid hourly. Out-of-state students and those commuting from more than two hours away may receive subsidized housing, meals and transportation to and from the office.
Internships are available in Chicago, IL and San Jose, CA. All interns will have the option to participate in three impactful weekend outings to explore the surrounding area.
As a summer intern embedded in either our engineering or sales engineering department, you will have the opportunity to help to create, develop and test the next generation of Aeris IoT network software. You will build atop legacy code, collaborate globally on software projects, and maintain live cellular network source code. You will apply concepts learned in school to real-world situations through issue reporting, defect resolution and validation processes to commercial software.
You will also learn how to pitch a startup to investors. Collaborating with the other Aeris interns, you will create a pitch and product demo, which you will then present to summer interns at the investment firm Makena Capital Management.
Finally, you will have the chance to learn about an emerging industry, see how a mature technology startup operates, and gain real, practical experiences that will carry you over the bridge from student to professional. The internship offers access to some of the most brilliant minds in the industry, and the opportunity to contribute to a thriving company – in an environment that values innovation, autonomy and integrity.
