Airthings internship program 2022

Zuzana Toufarová

August 10, 2022


Our internship program is a big part of our company culture today. From our humble roots in 2008, offering the first battery-powered radon detector, to today, offering an extensive range of radon and indoor air quality monitors, we stay true to our roots. As a result, we make sure that we stay true to our core beliefs and values, promoting a healthy, fun, and positive working environment. Our interns get to work on exciting projects that actually help the company- no grunt work! We have been running the internship program for several years now. Check out these links to see how our internship program has grown from 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021!

We have welcomed 15 interns this summer who worked across all departments in our Oslo office. During this summer, our interns became an important part of our Airthings team and brought fresh ideas and hard work into projects - from graphic design, social media, channel marketing, IT and security, software, hardware, data science, UX design, sales, and B2B customer success.

Our interns have also become a great team together and have had a lot of fun in the office and also after hours! We believe that our summer internship program was not only beneficial for gaining a lot of working experience but for gaining new friendships and memories during their time at Airthings! 

Let’s meet all of our 2022 summer interns!
