Internships at Calix

Start your career

At Calix, internships are more than a job—we prepare you for your career. Our internships run for approximately 90 days, allowing students to begin once their spring semester concludes and work up until they return to school in the fall. We believe that this timeframe allows students to become core members of our team, network across the organization, and make important connections.
