We're looking for talented and motivated student interns to help us build and scale the world's first calculation management platform for construction engineers!

The Opportunity

The construction sector wastes billions of dollars on design errors yearly, and material wastage on building sites is one of the most significant contributors to global emissions.
We believe these key issues plaguing the sector can be addressed with better design processes and better data management tools for engineers. That's why we’re building CalcTree!
CalcTree is a platform designed from the ground up to help engineers better manage their calculations and for engineering teams to more effectively and consistently create sustainable and innovative designs.
We're a remote-first, VC-backed startup, and are now looking for talented people to join our team as we build out the platform's first version.

The Role

As an engineering intern at CalcTree, you'll be working closely with our resident structural engineer and COO, Tim Rawling. You'll help him structure and build out our engineering data repository that will feed directly into the CalcTree product and be used by thousands of engineers around the world.
You’ll also work closely with our tech team helping to test early versions of the CalcTree platform and key features.
Unlike internships at traditional design firms, this role will have you leading work and making decisions with an immediate impact on the direction of the business from day 1. This provides you with a unique opportunity to create tangible value, an experience that will be invaluable for your future career.

And the most important bit...
Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women and other marginalised folks tend to only apply when they check every box.
As a company that deeply values diversity and inclusion, we are keen to hear from you even if you don't necessarily meet every single point on the job description. So don't hesitate to hit Apply or reach out and we'll do our best to see if you would be a great fit for the role.
