A summer internship with Sectra doesn’t just mean creating value for society through innovative technology. It also means joining and become part of the Sectra family. For this you will:

  • Get a full introduction day a month prior to your internship with the purpose of explaining our operations and culture and networking with Sectra employees and fellow interns.
  • Be assigned a mentor to support you when you first join us and throughout your project
  • Have the opportunity to create close and personal relationships with colleagues all over the world – we like to have fun together!
  • Get a unique inside perspective on our organization, our business and culture

Speaking of our culture. At Sectra we value humor and having fun together. What we do is serious business and we take that very seriously, but that also means we need to be able to laugh and let loose from time to time. Be prepared for social events on a regular basis, lots of fika and sports activities more or less on the daily if that’s your thing.

We hope that this opportunity will act as a stepping-stone for your future with Sectra. Many of our summer interns stay with us in various roles and even move on to any of our international offices. That option is of course available for you as well once you graduate and are ready to take on the world.

Our summer interns work on real projects and many are related to development of our software solutions, but we also offer opportunities with a stronger customer-, market- and business development perspective. Expect to be challenged and really put your skills to the test. Again, our interns work on real projects. But don’t worry, we will provide you with the support and information needed to succeed.
