Starting out with just three employees in 2009, MakerBot has grown to more than 450 in 2014 and is now seeking passionate, driven and talented interns to join its summer program.
The 2014 MakerBot Summer Internship Program invites college and grad-level engineering, manufacturing, production, customer support, sales, marketing, public relations, software and business development students to explore the desktop 3D printing industry.
"MakerBot is a big believer in supporting and mentoring young talent," said Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot. "We 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."
Paid interns will attend special lectures and participate in programs on 3D printing within their area of expertise, as well as interact with senior leadership, according to MarketBot. Previous MakerBot interns have gone on to attend MIT, work at Google and other technology companies, as well as come back to work at MakerBot.
