Undergraduate Electrical Engineer Intern (Summer 2024)

Our Company

According to John Owen, co-founder of JetBlue and investor at De-Ice, “the best way to save money for an airline is to run a reliable, on-time schedule, and current-state de-icing makes this impossible.”

De-Ice is an MIT spin-out that’s developed an electric de-icing solution that will solve this problem. This eliminates the need for the aircraft to hold on the ground for 30-45 minutes or more while workers in bucket trucks spray heated, toxic fluids on the aircraft.

If you’re passionate about aviation, engineering, and solving difficult problems, join our team to take a big step towards making flying sustainable for everyone.

The Position – Undergraduate Electrical Engineer Intern (Summer 2024)
