Geographic information system (GIS) technology is based on a simple concept. When you add points on a map—say, bike shops—you’re able to see how close that bike shop is to you. That’s geographic intelligence. Esri scales that concept up by designing systems that make the world’s data intelligible through cartography. From planets to our oceans to the smallest indoor spaces, everything is illuminated by GIS.

In other words, when you choose Esri you join something big.

Real Work. Real Experience.

An Esri internship is a 12-week program with competitive pay. We’re not going to waste that time and money making you a glorified gopher. You’ll be doing important work for us right away. You’ll apply your knowledge and professional strengths to projects that matter, such as creating apps to speed emergency aid or conducting market research for a business development campaign. Esri also encourages professional development so you can expand your skillset while you’re here. You’ll have many opportunities to get technical training and grow with Esri.

Business and Pleasure

Are you hungry for knowledge and healthy challenges? Your intern experience will be enriched by competitions and learning opportunities here. We host app-building contests and hackathons where teams of interns throughout the company work together to challenge your colleagues.

We also have a great eatery called the Esri Cafe. Sunlit from all glass walls, many teams have business meetings in the café for a change of pace. Esri chefs make fresh salads, international cuisine, and fresh pizza daily. The café even has a mini Starbucks so you can grab a latte and a lemon bar any time of the day.

Unique Company. Unique Location.

Redlands is centrally located and about an hour away from beaches, mountains, and deserts. You can camp in the lush forest of Twin Peaks one night and then go desert hiking in Joshua Tree the next afternoon. And if you like big cities, exciting attractions and night life are just a short drive away in Palm Springs, Los Angeles, and San Diego.
