The company looks for people who can grow, think, dream and create. Its culture thrives by embracing diversity and rewarding imagination. The brand seeks achievers, leaders and visionaries. At NIKE, Inc. it’s about each person bringing skills and passion to a challenging and constantly evolving game.
We’re looking for an Innovation Engineering Intern to help create the future of sport. This role dreams the future of sport and makes it a reality by demonstrating what is possible through engineering. This role requires an individual who has a passion and drive to unlock human potential and make sport a daily habit for all athletes*. The Innovation Engineering Intern will also possess skills in overcoming engineering challenges and/or notable examples of innovation. The Just Do It nature of the job requires a highly creative and competent engineering student; someone who is excited by trying new things and energized from learning through iteration.
As an Innovation Engineering Intern on the NXT Explore Engineering team, you will collaborate with a select group of Nike’s most talented engineers to explore the limits of what is possible when engineering solutions are applied to improving athletic performance. The NXT Explore Engineering team operates within Nike’s Space Kitchen, working at the furthest edge of the innovation spectrum; striving to make big leaps in what is possible. As an intern you will partner with scientists, designers, makers, and other engineers to develop concepts and build prototypes. You will learn from athlete feedback and iterate quickly through prototypes to prove the technology.
This role will collaborate with mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, software engineering, etc. as well as designers and scientists to help shape the engineering innovation portfolio. If you are a self-starter, comfortable in (and able to create opportunity from) highly ambiguous environments, and if you are willing to take high but informed risk, this role is for you.
