EchoStar commits itself to acquiring the best and the brightest for full-time selection and our summer internship program is one of our most promising ways to transition into the full-time team. Internships primarily take place at headquarters in Englewood, Colorado; however, some students will have the opportunity to work at our other offices. Our program encourages both professional and personal development of the intern, while exploring intense training opportunities and various social activities!
The 12-week journey allows you to gain knowledge about the EchoStar’s role in the fast-paced technology industry, strengthen your teambuilding skills, and explore breathtaking Colorado. Some of our interns have specific value-based projects, while others will work on daily assignments with our teams. Interns will be exposed to all levels of employees, from recent graduates to the executive team.
Internship requirements differ from job type to another, but all candidates must provide proof of their eligibility to work in the United States and pass both a background check and drug screen. Internships are paid but do not include health benefits. Please see our events calendar to discover when we will be visiting your school!
My internship at EchoStar has been an invaluable experience. My role as a Competitive Intelligence Specialist Intern has given me the opportunity to strengthen my market research skills and gain a strong grasp of the cutting-edge technology industry. The EchoStar team continuously challenged me over the course of the summer with a comprehensive, individual project regarding Piece of Mind technology.
The atmosphere at EchoStar is extremely entrepreneurial, and everyone is dedicated to meeting both team and personal work goals. The internship also focused on team building, personal development, and resilience. The summer activities included completion of a challenging ropes course and activities at a company-wide summer carnival. The most exciting aspect of my internship was escaping my comfort zone with the team by summiting Pike’s Peak, one of Colorado’s best known 14,000 foot mountains! As an inexperienced hiker, there is an incomparable feeling to finishing that trek and an invaluable lesson in resilience and teamwork that comes from completing such a tremendous task with fellow interns and their managers.
