Computer Science/Engineering Intern (Summer 2017)

Bookmark This


In aerospace, there are are two great passions—either you want to build a rocket and colonize Mars or you want to build fast airplanes. All of our friends are on Earth, so we’re more excited about airplanes.

Boom Technology is building the supersonic passenger airplane you can afford to fly. Think New York to London in 3.5 hours instead of 7, but at the same price as business class.

50 years after Concorde, Boom is applying the latest aerodynamics, engines, and materials with Silicon Valley-style lean development to bring back supersonic flight. Boom's aircraft will cross oceans at more than twice the speed of sound—2.6X faster than other airliners.

Interns at Boom will have the opportunity join an exciting aircraft startup focused on world-changing technology. We are offering an amazing opportunity to take ownership of individual projects spanning schema design, data pipelines, CFD automation and embedded systems. Our interns work on real stuff - like building systems to automate analysis of thousands of airplane configurations, or working on control logic that will fly on our XB-1 demonstrator aircraft. We’re looking for passionate and talented computer science and engineering students, one year from graduation (Bachelor or Masters degree). Our software engineers are language-agnostic, and have a deep understanding of the trade-offs between different tools. The ideal candidates will have a strong 'Maker' culture, be passionate about aircraft, have a garage full of model airplanes, and notebooks full of aircraft sketches.
