You might be Tamarack intern material if:

  • You want to be challenged every day
  • You live for the innovation and have passion for aerospace
  • You stay until the task gets done - not until the clock says you can go
  • You get frustrated with repetitive tasks and have the urge to write a script to automate it
  • You like feeling like part of a family at work - not a cog in the machine
  • You’re looking to learn as much over a summer as you would in a whole school year
  • You will do everything you can to meet a deadline

You will work alongside engineers, mechanics, and senior management advancing the technology. What you do will have a lasting benefit for you, Tamarack and the aerospace industry. Your name will be on certification documents, reports, and calibrations - things that only experienced engineers do at other companies.

Our interns are highly encouraged to use Tamarack equipment and resources after hours. Want to machine a part? Do it. Want to learn FEM? Do it. Have questions? Ask them. Our team is eager to help you learn and understand more - plus, you get to work around jet aircraft every day.

As an intern at Tamarack Aerospace Group, you will be an important part of a team working on the development and certification of game-changing technologies and innovations having genuine impact on the aerospace industry.

All interns must have a hunger to learn and be mentored by professionals. During the summer you will have the responsibility to attend technical talks by senior Tamarack engineers on relevant areas of expertise as well as receive coaching and mentorship from colleagues within Tamarack and throughout the vibrant aerospace community in Sandpoint, Idaho.
