Endace Interns Tackle the Industry’s Biggest Challenges

Our Summer Internship Programme is back and this year we are pleased to welcome three new interns to the Endace team.

Interns are paired with a mentor and on day one have a team-building exercise (with a little friendly competition). Using only what they can find in the office and their wits and ingenuity, they need to build a race-worthy vehicle that can propel itself across the lunchroom of our Hamilton R&D center.

Endace’s Engineering Managers will judge the event for creativity, innovation and artistic merit. There are two rules: it can’t cause harm to people or property (so no mini tanks, sorry guys) and it can’t use fire in any form (such as for a propellant).

The interns and their mentors have been challenged by the Auckland-team for a rematch at the end of their internship. So, let the games begin!

The Intern Programme

Throughout the next 12 weeks, our interns will be heavily involved with R&D projects that are designed to give them an edge in the technology industry and help shape the future of packet-capture and network monitoring technologies.

They will complete 1,500 hours of project-based R&D work, receive up to 100 dedicated mentoring hours and have the opportunity to prepare formal professional and career development plans.

They’re also given 64 hours of structured training which will give them an overview of running a technology business across different areas – including finance, supply chain, sales and quality control.

The culmination of the 12-week programme is a presentation and shared learning session between the interns and members of the senior leadership team, project managers and their mentors.

Endace is excited to welcome our new team of interns and looking forward to working with them on a number of projects. We are committed to ensuring their internship is a robust experience that supports their innovation, drive and talent development and that it is an experience that they’ll remember fondly. Endace is a committed member of the NZ Tech community.

We are proud of the Endace Internship Programme and see it as a great way to help computer science students and graduates build talent and experience and grow the industry. And it helps demonstrate why Endace is an employer of choice for IT and engineering graduates in New Zealand.
