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 Mitsubishi, Hyundai 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, we rank among the top ten cellular providers for 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 currently is 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.
As a summer intern, you will have the chance to learn about a new and growing industry, witness firsthand how a mature technology startup operates, and gain real, practical experiences that will carry you over the bridge from student to professional. The role offers access to some of the most brilliant minds in the industry, and the opportunity to contribute meaningfully to a thriving company.
Interested? A few things to know about Aeris:
We’re offering a 12-week, full-time product management internship, perfect for engineering students with an interest in business―or business majors with an interest in engineering.
The Product Management team is responsible for designing products that have the potential to scale. As a product management intern, you will learn how to develop and create a product offering by researching potential product capabilities, understanding how those capabilities compare to competitive offerings, and, in some cases, building “proof of concept” prototypes. The role involves heavy research, analytical thinking, effective presentation skills, and, potentially, software development.
Aeris has two core product offerings, and we are hiring one intern to work with the product teams responsible for each:
As a product management intern working on either product, you will play a key role in helping us push into new areas through market research, competitive analysis, and prototype development. You will work with the most cutting-edge IoT technologies to define or build something new and immediately useful. Past interns have:
All Aeris interns have the option to learn how to pitch a startup to investors. Collaborating with the other Aeris interns (10-15 in total), you will have the opportunity create a pitch and product demo, and present it to summer interns at the investment firm Makena Capital Management.
Interns will be provided with a stipend. 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. All interns will have the option to participate in three impactful outings to explore the surrounding area.

Aeris walks the walk on diversity. We’re a brilliant mix of varying ethnicities, religions, cultures, sexual orientations, gender identities, ages, and professional/personal/military experiences―and that’s by design. Diverse perspectives are essential to our culture, innovative process, and competitive edge. Aeris is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
