Want to Join the Waterloo Labs Team?

We have been working on this one for a while, but I can now announce that Waterloo Labs will be hiring four summer interns in 2011. We have so many great project ideas, but we need your help to continue to grow Waterloo Labs. Working with National Instruments, we are offering a 10 to 12-week PAID internship in Austin, TX for summer 2011. The team of interns will work together on a wide variety of projects that will all be documented on YouTube and our other channels. Since we want to get started right away, we are looking for well-qualified engineering and computer science students who have a passion for projects and a diverse design, fabrication, and programming background. Depending on your schools requirements you may even be able to get a class credit for this internship (bonus).

The application is online and ready to go. Video resumes and web portfolios are highly encouraged so be sure to add links in your application cover letter. We are looking forward to seeing great candidates and will be setting up phone and Skype interviews for our best candidates.

The application deadline has passed. If you want to see the intern team in action, be sure to subscribe to the Waterloo Labs YouTube Channel. If you would still like to get involved sign up for our mailing list, so you will be included on our future crowd source projects.
