NetApp is the data authority for hybrid cloud. We provide a full range of hybrid cloud data services that simplify management of applications and data across cloud and on-premises environments to accelerate digital transformation. Together with our partners, we empower global organizations to unleash the full potential of their data to expand customer touch points, foster greater innovation and optimize their operations.
The Advanced Technology Group (http://atg.netapp.com) is responsible for incubating, prototyping, and evaluating new ideas within NetApp. We work directly with internal product groups to apply these ideas in the context of our existing and future products.
Our internship program is an approximately 3 month summer experience that will provide you an opportunity to gain in depth knowledge about NetApp’s business and culture as you enjoy meeting with organizational leaders during lunch, network with your fellow interns at various social events, and present your hard work to NetApp executives and management.
