Make your summer count - Vaisala Giant Leap Internship

Are you ready to take a Giant Leap into working life? Would you like to kick-start your career by working with a meaningful project in an innovative and international environment? We at Vaisala offer you a highly valued internship program that our previous generations of Giant Leapers describe as memorable, challenging and just a splendid experience in general.

Your key responsibilities include

Each year we handpick exciting real-life business challenges for our Giant Leapers to manage. Each Giant Leaper gets their own development project to lead, organize and execute with the support of experienced Vaisala employees. Our unique approach helps you to improve your skills and gain special insight into our mission of creating observations for a better world. The highlight of your three-month #myvaisalasummer will be presenting the outcomes of your project to our board of executives.

Next summer, we offer you an exciting research and development project in our Boulder office:

Using artificial intelligence to connect Vaisala’s weather radar and lightning data for improved transportation safety

Vaisala’s weather radars and lightning detection sensors provide observations of high-impact weather events around the world. The goal of this project is to create new observations, descriptions, and forecasts of high-impact weather events by fusing weather radar and lightning data. You will have the unique and important opportunity to create and apply new artificial intelligence techniques to a novel dataset to help save resources, costs, and lives of road and air travelers.

To succeed in this project, you should have a solid understanding of data wrangling, data analytics, and artificial intelligence/deep learning concepts and tools. You have experience programming in Python or Java and you have completed first-year or higher graduate studies in computer science, atmospheric science, or electrical/computer engineering.

Who we are looking for

Our challenging and meaningful program is designed for 3+ year students in a university or polytechnic with a variety of skills, qualities and educational backgrounds.

We appreciate our Giant Leapers and treat them as our own right from the get-go. The open and supportive atmosphere makes it easy to enjoy your summer with us. We don’t expect you to have all the answers but we hope you have lots of questions.

So if you are ready to work hard, do your best and take this leap with us, see our projects for the upcoming summer and pick yours! Learn more about the program on or check Vaisala on social media on LinkedIn and Instagram.
