What your peers have to say

First hand insights from our previous Electrum interns

“Electrum’s culture is amazing! I’ve never seen a company that goes all out to make sure that their employees feel at home. Everyone here is so kind and wonderful. I have only been here for four weeks but I already feel like I am part of the Electrum family. Electrum is the only place I’ve worked at where I don’t constantly find myself checking if it’s time to go home. They provide us with a fully-stocked kitchen, FatSaks and blankets (you can literally live here).”

“I went into the internship hoping to simply get a glimpse of the industry, and left with an experience far exceeding my expectations. It was my most enjoyable and educational experience yet!”

“Coffee, code and cats (if you’re lucky). What more could you ask for?

Jokes aside, it was an absolute pleasure learning from brilliant minds that are willing to teach and provide mentorship. I had a chance to contribute to crucial infrastructure serving South Africans today, which was quite stretching, but at the same time, fulfilling. My time here was accompanied by a lot of fun, whether that was out camping, in the office chatting over coffee, or battling it out in the paintball arena.”

“Electrum is by far the most hip, young-adult-friendly company I’ve interned with. Their well-balanced work-hard play-hard company culture is rare as diamonds in this industry. Never in my entire undergrad have I learned as much and had as much fun doing it as I did during my Electrum internship.”
