Work alongside leaders at some of the fastest-growing tech companies, make friends with more than 100 other Xterns from around the country, and experience why Indy is such an awesome place to live.
We will introduce you to people in a variety of industries and professions who help make Indy the vibrant and growing city it is, and you will learn how you can get involved and leave your mark.
If the world of tech is where you see yourself, then Xtern is the program for you.
The Xtern program places you with a high-growth tech company for a 10-week, 9-to-5, paid internship over the summer. Xtern finalists will interview with three-to-five tech companies for their internship. Xtern also gives you a chance to live for free in Indiana’s capital city and find out all that Indy has to offer as a place to live, work, and play! Live together with other Xterns and explore the city together.
Xterns have an opportunity to exercise the skills you have learned, gain work experience and connect with industry leaders. “During my internship, I got the opportunity to work on some really cool and eye-opening projects in my field. I learned a lot throughout the summer from things like working on machine learning models, frontend development, data science skills, and more. Overall this was an unforgettable experience.” – Ryan Klinedinst.
Through the Xtern program you will learn about organizations leading the efforts to inspire and educate the next generation of tech leaders in our K-12 schools and those that are creatively building a more vibrant community in Indy for everyone! Better yet, you will have the opportunity to get actively involved in this work through civic engagement events.
