Engineering Internship at Vectra AI
Austin, TX, US

The Vectra Engineering team is a small and constantly growing team of individuals. We look for people that are smart, very capable technically, and have fun solving the challenges that our customers face together as a team. We believe strongly that everyone, including interns, can and should have significant impacts on the growth of the product as well as the company and our culture. We believe in using the right technology for each problem and building knowledge through mentorship and other things like peer code reviews. We're excited to find others to join the team that want to work on an interesting product that solves real problems.

As part of the Engineering team, Software Engineering Interns will work directly on the Cognito product platform to solve customer problems. We traditionally bring in a small team of individuals each summer and propose a set of different projects for the team to select based on the team's interests. These are projects that will actually be used in production, so we expect our internship to provide a good picture of what it's like to work here at Vectra as a full-time engineer.

The ideal candidate is a team player who is excited to learn about and work with a variety of technologies to solve different problems.
