About The Role

Launch your career with one of the most exciting internship opportunities in New Zealand! 

Following the success of our two rockets ("It's a Test" and "Still Testing") we are looking for stand-out talent to join our hardworking team over the summer. 

As Software Engineer Intern you will be working closely with our Propulsion and Software Teams to develop tools and reports for analysing test data rapidly and accurately.
This job will involve hands on experience at Rocket Lab’s propulsion test sites working alongside the current test engineers and technicians. Daily tasks include consulting with propulsion team members, developing python and .NET software and implement a reporting server. Solutions developed for propulsion could roll out across the company if done well.
As a member of the Propulsion team you will be involved in Rutherford engine and Electron stage tests.

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

Internship requirements:
  • At least a 3rd or 4th year engineering student (or equivalent qualification) 
  • Working knowledge of C#.NET and Python
  • Experience with SQL databases. Experience with MySQL, PostgreSQL and MS SQL Server considered favourably
  • A willingness to get stuck in to practical tasks
  • The ability to work under pressure in a dynamic environment
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: 6-month internship (dates subject to the successful candidate's course requirements)
