Student Internship Program

Earn While You Learn

An opportunity for Undergraduate students in their 2nd, 3rd or final years of college/ Postgraduate students in their 1st year, to work remotely while pursuing their education.

There has always been a gap between what we learn in college and the skills needed to solve real-world problems. And CloudSEK is trying to bridge this gap by allowing students to apply what they learn, develop new skills, and earn a stipend, while still in college.

EWYL, Earn while you Learn - Mayank Working at CloudSEK Internship Program

Earn While You Learn,
Learning by Doing

Earn While You Learn (EWYL) has an interesting origin story. In 2017, when CloudSEK was still in its nascent stages, we received a persuasive email from Mayank Satnalika, who was then pursuing his engineering degree in VIT. We offered him an internship for a few months, during which we recognized this passion and potential. So, we let him continue his internship remotely, while he completed his course. After he graduated, Mayank joined our AI and Data Engineering team as a full-time CloudSter, and he now leads our AI back-end team. 

This experience made us realize that the right opportunities, during their formative years, allow young professionals to stay motivated and discover their capabilities. But opportunities like this are few and far between.

This lead us to launch EWYL, a program through which we select a handful of undergraduate students (2nd year and above) to work in our AI, Cybersecurity and Engineering teams. We also pay a stipend of INR 25,000 a month to cover their education loan and other expenses. After graduation, we offer them an opportunity to join us as full-time CloudSters. And all this comes without any contractual obligations!
