Student Internships

Cruise interns dig into hard problems that have a direct impact on our vehicles or our teams’ efficiency. From getting hands-on with our self-driving vehicles to presenting their work at weekly demos, interns are treated like full-time employees from day one.

Learn from dedicated mentors

During your 12-week internship, you will be matched with a manager and mentor who will provide guidance and hands-on opportunities to contribute to Cruise’s mission.

Be part of a team

Cruise is a highly collaborative environment where people set each other up to succeed. Together, we’re solving the engineering challenge of our generation while making lasting friendships along the way.
