About The Role

Launch your career with one of the most exciting summer internship opportunities in New Zealand! Following the success of our first rocket ("It's a Test") we are looking for stand-out talent to join our hardworking team over the summer. 

Our Avionics team are responsible for the designing, building and testing of the electronic modules that control the Electron launch vehicle. As an intern with this A-team you will be involved in electrical design projects and upgrading Rocket Lab's design resources.

Day-to-day you'll be assisting with managing and upgrading Rocket Lab's electrical design projects, starting from component libraries through to manufacturing outputs. A range of opportunities will also pop up each day, including support for test campaigns, assembling electronic circuit boards, and other R&D tasks.

This internship programme will certainly have its perks, as you learn from the best in the aerospace industry, watch live test fires, have unlimited access to our snack and fruit baskets, attend our staff Christmas party, and (fingers crossed) view a launch alongside the dedicated people that made it happen. 

Internship requirements:
  • Final year electrical / electronics / mechatronics engineering student (or equivalent qualification)
  • Good familiarity with Altium Designer for schematic capture and layout.
  • Enthusiastic and proactive
  • Proven communication skills, especially in technical writing
Include the following with your application: 
  • Your CV
  • A copy of your unofficial transcript
  • A cover letter including an example of an engineering project you have completed in your spare time and describe the value this added. 
Internship dates: Monday 20 November 2017 - Friday 23 February 2018 (may vary depending on your course requirements). 

Most of our intern roles close Sunday 27 August 2017 (get in quick - we snap up the best candidates as soon as they apply!)
