The PermitZIP internship program places you at the front and center of our engineering and business. You will be challenged to master the craft of engineering as well as the art of building a business. Interns can expect rapid growth with tremendous opportunities for strategic leadership within the organization.
Our program has shown success in building leadership and professional development. The very first interns in our program, Simon and Carter, started before we even had an office (in Mary's living room). Today, Simon runs our mechanical design team and is a key planner in business expansion and new services. Carter runs the electrical design team with plans of developing future automation and new production workflow pipelines for the entire company as we expand across the country.
Your career starts with PermitZIP and becomes what you want to make it. We encourage complete autonomy and will work side by side with you to mentor you along the way.
How does it work?
PermitZIP offers both paid and unpaid internships. The internship begins as a full-time, summer-long or winter-long position. After the summer phase of the program, you will be able to work as a paid employee, remotely, part-time, and during your semesters at your convenience.
You are free to work full-time weeks during your breaks and future summers, but that is not a requirement. We prefer you focus on your schoolwork as your first priority.
What will I do?
You'll be working directly with our engineers and designers to learn the fundamentals of our software, workflow, process, and get to know the entire team. The details of your experience will vary depending on your focus: Construction Design or Software Development.
You will be invited to join client meetings as well as on-site site visits. You will learn how our 3D cameras work and how we use technology to capture high volumes of data and increase communication bandwidth.
The specifics of the engineering practiced will depend on your discipline. Some examples of skills include performing load calculations, selecting equipment, interpreting code, studying building envelopes, or performing lighting and fault current calculations.
At the heart of this knowledge, you will learn how to consult with our clients through the challenges of blending engineering with code, budget, and a project's needs.
As a member of our budding dev team, you will be encouraged to build and contribute to the tools and standards we use to develop our code and digital infrastructure.
Our codebase is focused on serverless applications hosted by Amazon Web Services, giving you an opportunity to learn and practice with some of the most in-demand skills and tools in the software industry. You'll have the opportunity to pitch and lead entirely new projects as we expand into mobile app development, custom frontend design, and external consulting, and you'll work directly with our global teammates and mentors overseas.
At the heart of this internship, you'll learn to build and deploy digital infrastructure as code, work with a diverse team across the globe, and set new standards for team and business development.
