We hire graduate/undergraduate students with a variety of technical and non-technical expertise including ME, Physics, Math, Finance, Legal, People & Culture students. However, most of our interns are graduate level STEM students studying ECE, CE, EE, and CS.
We encourage you to apply to all positions you believe you are qualified to support. We will then work to select the one that best matches your interests and skills.
Please email and we'll take care of it for you. *TIP: we like cover letters.
Initially, you can expect a 15-30 minute phone screen. Depending on the position, there will then be 2-3 technical interviews (occasionally more) between 45-60 minutes in length. During all the meetings we will be including soft skill questions and encourage you to bring your own questions as well --- we want to feel interviewed by you too!
Interviews happen on a rolling basis. Some teams move faster than others but we will do our best to provide timely updates.
“I couldn't be more excited to wake up every day and come to Ampere's office in downtown Portland! Everyone has been incredibly helpful and given me the opportunity to both learn and grow in my field. I'm becoming both a better professional and engineer through this experience.”
