Two summer intern positions at Sense-Co
Sense-Co, the spin-off company of Sense-T, is seeking two talented interns to join the team over the summer break. Come along to the student pitch night on Wednesday 24 September to learn more about these roles and other intern opportunities with Australian tech start-ups.
The Sense-Co interns will take part in the Alpha Trial, undertaking key research in the analysis and quality assurance of sensor data. The requirements for the Data Scientist and Data Quality Engineer intern positions are below.
IT and engineering students are encouraged to come along to the student pitch night on Wednesday 24 September run by Tin Alley beta, an Australian tech internship program through the University of Melbourne. Sense-Co will be one of 12 Australian start-ups pitching intern positions for summer 2014/15.
The event will be held in Melbourne with presentations live streamed to Hobart. Sense-Co will present from Hobart and will be available to discuss the positions with interested students. The Melbourne event has sold out but places are left for the Hobart event.
Time 6pm to 9pm
Date Wednesday 24 September
Venue Room 473, Centenary Building
Sandy Bay Campus, University of Tasmania
