In the 5 years that MakerBot has been around, they have managed to become one of the top consumer level 3D printing companies in the world. They have grown from 3 employees in 2009, to 40 in 2011, 160 in 2012, and an astounding 450 in 2014.
Now they are putting a call out there for interns this summer. They are looking for passionate, driven, talented people to intern for the company for a few months.
The positions available include production, manufacturing, sales, marketing, customer support, public relations, business development, and software. They are currently looking for both college and graduate level students.
“MakerBot is a big believer in supporting and mentoring young talent,” commented Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot. “We’ve have had a robust internship program since our founding and have enjoyed having a lot of young talented interns and employees that have helped shape our company. My background as a teacher and as a CEO provides a unique perspective for how real-world experience is beneficial for helping create our future engineers and programmers. When you expose young, creative, kids to 3D printing, you encourage them to look at the world through ‘MakerBot eyes’ and see the world differently.”
Best of all, the MakerBot internship positions are paid positions, unlike most companies that don’t pay their interns. The internships will begin with an orientation on May 27 and end on August 15. Interns will not only make some money, but they will get experience in working for one of the up-and-coming companies in the world, while also learning about 3D printing. Several previous MakerBot interns already have gone on to acquire high paying jobs with other companies, such as Google.
