    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 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 do things differently.  As a pioneer in a highly-competitive industry that is poised to reshape every sector of the global economy, we cannot fall back on old models. Rather, we must chart our own path and strive to out-innovate, out-learn and out-pace the competition along the way.
    • We walk the walk on diversity. We’re a brilliant and eclectic mix of ethnicities, religions, industry experiences, sexual orientations, generations and more―and that’s by design. Diverse perspectives are essential to our culture, innovative process and competitive edge.
    • Integrity is essential. We believe in doing things well―and doing them right. Integrity is a core value here: you’ll see it embodied in our staff, our management approach and growing social impact work (we have a VP devoted to it).  You’ll also see it embodied in the way we manage people and our HR issues as we expect employees and managers to deal with issues directly, immediately, and with the utmost respect for each other and for the Company.


    We’re offering 12-week, full-time marketing internships that will run from either May 20 – Aug 9 or June 24 – Sep 13, depending on the student’s school schedule. Internships are available in marketing project management and campaign development. Students will be placed in one of these two positions based on a combination of their interests and skills.


    Aeris’ marketing team drives more than 25 simultaneous programs at any point in time that have direct impact on Aeris’ success. These programs range from product vision and messaging, lead generation, media outreach, analyst relations, campaign creation / management, content development, video creation, website development, creative design, paid advertising, sales enablement, training platforms, ecommerce, expansion programs, and much more.


    As a summer intern embedded in our marketing department, you will learn about the major marketing functions, and how they work together to contribute to business success. In particular, you will:

    • Gain an understanding of the IoT industry and standard marketing processes, including how to create campaigns, generate leads, create value propositions, and identify customer pain points to ensure successful sales cycles.
    • Get hands-on experience with key business processes and systems, including metrics and KPIs (key performance indicators), funnel management, marketing automation, CRM tools, lead workflow, and campaign management.
    • Learn how marketing outcomes are tied directly to revenue, and how to communicate the value of marketing programs.


    Students placed in marketing project management will assist our VP of Marketing with complex team-wide projects, while campaign development interns will focus more on the design and execution of specific outreach campaigns, including conferences, webinars, and digital efforts.


    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 a product demo, and present it to summer interns at the investment firm Makena Capital Management. 



    All 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 weekend outings to explore the surrounding areas.

    Here’s what we’re looking for:

    • You’re a college student in strong academic standing. The internship is open to rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors from all majors. The program is best suited for a Business major, MIS major, and/or a person that has a specific ambition to lead teams in the future.  Transcripts will be requested as part of the application process. Only applicants who are still registered undergraduates and will still be in school at the time of the internship will be accepted.
    • You’re curious. You may not have much prior work experience in marketing or IoT, but you have a demonstrated interest in understanding how technology can be applied to solve some of the world’s most pressing challenges. You easily can provide us with multiple examples that showcase your drive and ability to learn fast.
    • You have strong analytical skills. You have a demonstrated ability to solve tough problems, leveraging data, instinct, creativity, and grit. To get the most out of this role, you need to be proficient with Microsoft Excel.
    • You’re eager. You proactively seek out learning opportunities, and you mobilize to get the most out of them as you possibly can.
    • You’re a team player. You know that proactively contributing ideas, collaborating with others, asking questions, seeking out projects, and coming to others for help, as needed, are keys to success.
    • You’re professional. You have a strong professional demeanor, and know how to write and present clearly. No matter which department you’re in, writing and presenting will be involved.

    We’ve designed our internship program to expose underrepresented students to career opportunities in the industry. Students from all school are strongly encouraged to apply.


    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.
