Valuable career experience

We offer a 14-week, paid summer internship that allows students to gain valuable career experience. Our interns participate in active projects and explore the career opportunities available in our many highly technical and specialized departments.

Many interns develop lasting relationships with their mentors and return for multiple summers. Some interns even continue to work part-time during the school year. Since program inception, over 40 interns have returned to JT4 after graduation to start their professional careers. 

How to Apply

The application window has closed. Please visit us again next January.

  • Real-time programming (C, VxWorks, etc.)
  • Mathematical algorithm development (MatLab, Python, R, etc.)
  • Object-oriented programming (C++, C#, Java, etc.)

Examples of past projects include programming Raspberry Pi boards to replace video capture equipment, creating software to track systems using the NASA earth model and adapting infrastructure to convert serial protocols to faster Ethernet protocols.

Duration and duties

Each intern is supervised by a JT4 mentor who is a hands-on participant in the assigned project. Interns are expected to commit to a 40‐hour workweek for up to 14 weeks of the program.

JT4’s Intern Program gave me an incredibly exciting start to my career. The knowledge and meaningful mentorship I gained during my time as an intern continue to have a lasting positive effect on me to this day. I happily joined the J-Tech team as a full-time employee as soon as I graduated in 2018. My favorite part about working for JT4 is the team spirit that goes into our innovation and collaboration. It is a privilege to be able to work with and learn from a remarkable group of analysts and engineers every single day.

Both local and out-of-state students can anticipate either a phone, web or face-to-face interview. Our recruiters will work with you to schedule the most convenient option.
JT4 interns are not guaranteed future employment. However, interns who excel in their summer projects may be encouraged to apply for available positions upon graduation. They must proceed through the normal hiring process and be the most qualified candidate for the position in order to be hired.

If you immediately pursue your graduate degree following the receipt of your undergraduate degree, you may still be eligible to participate in our internship program. However, you may want to consider a full-time position with us. View our current opportunities to determine if there is a current open position that aligns with your qualifications and career goals.
