Summary Description

InterDev is excited to offer a unique internship experience to the right candidate. There will be no fetching of coffee (except your own, if you want). Instead, due to InterDevís position as a private company that provides contracted services to local government entities, you will have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects in distinct environments. Additionally, you will have the chance to be involved with InterDevís Location Intelligence Lab (LIL). The LIL is a research and development focused team within InterDevís GIS Department that specializes in identifying creative uses of geospatial technology.

It is our goal to largely align your skills and interests with compatible projects within our organization. However, you will also be provided time for experimentation and will be encouraged to develop a unique LIL project. This project will be supervised by your manager who will assist you in scoping, allocating resources for, and delivering the project.

For the right candidate, this internship may prove to be an invaluable experience that will prepare one for the next phase of their career.
