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’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:
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.
