Life as an Acubed intern


We provide interns with many opportunities to take part in building the future of flight. Inventing can be messy — we know that there is much we can do better, and we find tremendous energy in the many opportunities that lie ahead. Because of this, we provide every intern with both a mentor and a manager who will work to enable their success and help facilitate their career growth. These partners will provide guidance on projects, give feedback on key deliverables and work to remove barriers. Some of our most senior leaders started as interns, and we use this program as an important source for discovering talent.


We empower Acubers to take full ownership over their work, which is why we provide a variety of self-service resources to help teams meet their goals and learn from one another. During an internship, you can expect formal classroom training and self-service offerings. These materials help with things like managing experiences, analyzing data, problem solving, writing narrative documents and working backwards from the customer to the end goal. In addition to projects, interns are provided with many opportunities to develop personal and professional networks by taking part in social events, diving into workshops and taking advantage of all that Acubed has to offer.
