Join our team!
Trail of Bits helps secure the world’s most targeted organizations and products. We combine high-end security research with a real-world attacker mentality to reduce risk and fortify code.
As a cybersecurity research and consulting firm, we serve clients in the defense, tech, finance, and blockchain industries. We help with their most difficult security challenges by designing and building new technology, researching new techniques to advance the state of practice, and reviewing the security of the latest available technology products before they hit the market.
Our team consumes, produces, and presents research as a natural part of doing business. When we make new discoveries or developments, we strive to share our knowledge and release our tools as open-source. It’s a practice that’s earned us industry accolades and helped contribute to our double-digit bottom line growth.
Is an internship right for you?
Types of internships we offer:
Winternship - 3 weeks over Winter Break
Remote, short-term winter internship opportunities. Winternships generally happen over your University’s winter break. You can get paid to work on a short-term and achievable project that excites you and still spend time with your friends and family.
Summer Internship - 2-3 months over the Summer Break
Full-time summer internship opportunities. Summer interns work out of our New York office on medium-sized research projects. We commonly accept returning summer interns year after year.
Co-Op Internship - 6 months in the Fall or Spring semesters
This internship opportunity is for students who attend universities that require a co-op internship as a condition of graduation (ie. Northeastern University). Co-Op interns work full-time in our New York office alongside our full-time engineers. We don’t have any junior engineers at Trail of Bits, so our Co-Op interns’ experience most closely resembles that of a junior full-time employee. You’ll get ample mentorship and support, but you’ll also be expected to deliver on exciting projects for our commercial products and consulting clients.
Ongoing Part-time - Rarely, on a case-by-case basis
Occasionally, when the fit is right, we offer ongoing part-time internships for select candidates. Most times, these interns are prior Summer, Winter, and Co-Op interns who would like to continue their projects beyond the timeframe of their formal internships.
What you can expect from all our internships:
- Help picking a topic that excites you, is achievable, that you can talk about after the project is complete
- Ongoing support and mentorship from a Trail of Bits engineer
- A platform to share your internship achievements on our blog and/or by presenting at our bi-monthly in New York, Empire Hacking
- Competitive monetary compensation
If you’re not seeing any of the above positions specifically listed under the INTERNSHIPS category on our Lever page, it might mean that none of our programs are currently recruiting for new candidates.
