This summer Airthings hired seven interns to work in our various departments. They come from a variety of educational backgrounds to work in our headquarters here in Oslo, Norway. We see summer internships as a way to connect with the community, teaching new, useful and relevant skills to soon-to-be graduates and learning from them along the way. Airthings strongly believes that internships can be a great benefit to both them and us. We gain fresh perspective, creative thinking and the opportunity to work with future job seekers. We aim to create a fun, challenging and most importantly useful learning opportunity for their later careers.

As an introduction to the company, we welcomed them to our annual “Strategy Summit” where we hiked a mountain, talked business strategy and had team building exercises. Basically a crash-course in our company and culture. Check out our instagram for photos of our Besseggen hike!
