Summer Experience Programme -  Internship

Our Summer Experience programme provides a rewarding learning experience where you’ll be involved in our daily operations and make real contributions to our projects. You’ll be exposed to a significant level of cross-functional experiences unlike similar roles at larger companies.

The internship involves 12 weeks of full-time work at our Central Auckland office. You will work closely with talented individuals across multiple teams, following the development, implementation, and configuration of a successful client project.

In your time as an intern at ecoPortal, you will be doing meaningful work. Each internship is also based around a project that you will take the lead on while being guided by the talented individuals in our team. Each project will:

  • Solve a specific problem and directly help improve our processes
  • Expose you to a range of technologies to develop your technical skills
  • Involve collaboration with multiple teams 
  • Be presented by you at the end of the summer (with the chance to win prizes!)

We’ll support your growth and mentor you throughout your time here. 

At ecoPortal, we are a value and purpose-driven organisation that fundamentally believe in being a force of good in the world - for our customers, our employees, the environment and the wider world. We believe everyone deserves to work in a welcoming, respectful, and empathetic culture.
