Cybersecurity Internship Program

At AT&T, we help family, friends and neighbors connect in meaningful ways every day. Our 5G network is live for consumers and businesses across the country. We’re also building FirstNet, the nationwide network that enables first responders and public safety officials to stay connected in times of crisis. Our robust and growing fiber footprint provides gigabit speeds to nearly two million customers. Innovation powers all that we do and as part of our team, your next big idea could be our newest innovation. Here’s your opportunity to combine your passion for technology and connecting the world through top-of-the line communications to transform our company and your career.  

Combine your talent with our technology and make the impossible possible. If you’re a current student interested in cybersecurity, we’re offering the opportunity to secure your future with AT&T. Our Cybersecurity Internship Program allows you to take the lead as part of our world class Chief Security Organization. You’ll work at the forefront of cybersecurity and gain exposure to the many facets of a career with us. Most importantly, you’ll play a vital role in helping AT&T to maintain the security of millions of customers around the world. 

As a summer intern in our Cybersecurity Internship Program, you’ll spend 10-12 weeks in cybersecurity-related project work in our collaborative, team-oriented environment, and expand your technical skills. As you grow your skillset, you’ll learn what it takes to succeed in a cybersecurity career with us. You’ll also have the opportunity to network with leaders across the organization and build relationships within AT&T. What’s the goal? To set you up to be considered for future opportunities with our company.

Cybersecurity Software Engineer
As a software engineer, you’ll work in teams to build out next-generation security technology solutions for projects such as 5G, Mobility, Open-Source Initiatives, Network security, Microservices, Automation, Cloud solutions, Threat Analytics, Data Protection, AI/Machine Learning, Quantum technology, and UI/UX design. You’ll interpret a software feature from an end user's perspective, determine the best designed solution, and then code and test your solution. You’ll also demo the user story solution for the software product owner, gather their feedback and make any needed adjustments. You’ll participate in daily meetings to communicate progress and impediments as part of a team. If you’re passionate about coding, we’re the place to be! Some languages and tools we leverage for software development include Java, SQL, Python, Linux, Azure/AWS, HTML, Angular, XML, database technologies, and visualization tools.

Cybersecurity Data Analyst
As a data analyst, you’ll use your knowledge of artificial intelligence, machine learning and automation to breakdown business problems, analyze data, and guide improvements. Your efforts will help influence customer satisfaction and generate millions in potential savings and revenue. Your solutions could influence everything from fleet optimization, customer equipment issues, energy efficiency and content analytics and marketing – often before the problem ever occurs. With ongoing skill development and collaboration with some of the brightest minds in the field, you’ll be poised to make your mark. This is your chance to gain experience and stand out. With your know-how and access to one of the largest data sets available, you’ll make an impact and develop meaningful data-driven insights to inspire continuous innovation. Some languages and tools we leverage for data assessment, extraction, 
analytics, and monitoring include Python/R programming, Jupyter notebooks, APIs, Spark, Azure/AWS, PowerBI, and Splunk.

Whether you are a fit for a software engineer or data analyst role, the cybersecurity internship offers you the opportunity to potentially explore knowledge, technology, and build skills. Some general skills we will leverage for both roles: strong communication, analytical thinking, decision making skills and taking initiative.

So, what qualifications are we looking for in a candidate? We’re looking for someone of integrity with excellent interpersonal, oral, and written communication skills and the ability to interface with all levels of internal and external leadership. We value results-driven self-starters who can work effectively in multi-disciplinary environments throughout cross-functional teams. You’ll also need to be a naturally curious lifelong learner that is interested in the many innovations being fostered every day at AT&T. 

Key requirements:
•    Current student pursuing a four-year undergraduate or graduate degree in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math). Inclusive of degrees meeting federal STEM classification codes. 

Preferred qualifications: 
•    Rising senior pursuing a cybersecurity major/minor/specialization or equivalent.  

If you have a passion for cybersecurity and the desire to join a team known for being a leader in security innovations, this internship was made for you.
