Internships & Co-ops

Craft your path at STR

It takes tenacity and teamwork to solve tough problems. Our culture thrives on autonomy and ambition for impact. Build on your solid technical foundation.

Program Overview

Skills, opportunities, and relationships to shape your future

STR offers internship opportunities in all our areas of expertise. As an STR intern, you’ll never be asked to go on a coffee run, unless of course, you offer. We pride ourselves in providing our interns with real, meaningful projects that have real-world impact in our defense industry. We do our homework.

We look out for your whole experience. Our summer internship program even includes housing, which takes the stress out of apartment hunting and lets you hang out with your fellow interns. We also provide social events so you can meet a lot of other people across the company and discover their stories.

Prior to your arrival, we’ll try to figure out what kind of project best matches your interest area. We’ll match you with a mentoring team and prepare your project so you can dive right in when you start.

It’s an experience you’ll never forget. Some of our interns choose to build their career at STR, others use it as a launching pad for something different. The one thing we’re sure of is that an internship with us will provide you skills, opportunities, and relationships to shape your future.

“It’s pretty fun to work at a place that does good things and treats its employees really well. There is free coffee, oatmeal, snacks, Bruegger’s Bagels every Friday, lots of giveaways (peloton bikes!), a ton of employee academic/fun clubs (I am in the RF, surfing, running, and math clubs), and fun laptop stickers. Regardless of your level of experience, working at STR will be a growth experience.”
