Why choose Electrum?
You are assigned a dedicated mentor to guide you through your projects and the Electrum journey as a whole. These mentors set aside most of their time to make sure that you are well set up. You essentially receive one-on-one career coaching every day.
When you join our programmes at Electrum, you start as a group. Not everyone is going to just cruise through the projects, but the fact that you are in a group gives you a support system that allows you to learn from each other’s strengths.
Working on real projects
We believe the best way to learn is to spend time tackling real problems. All the interns and grads that join us at Electrum get the chance to work on real projects and interact directly with customers.
Full project lifecycle
Involvement in the full life-cycle of our projects.
Our onboarding workshops take you through our products and the different environments specific to our customers, as well as the inner workings of Electrum and how different departments contribute to the company’s success.
Experience Electrum’s culture
Team building, socials and events are organised by the company to help you get to know one another, bond as a group, have fun and build trust.
“Electrum’s culture is amazing! I’ve never seen a company that goes all out to make sure that their employees feel at home. Everyone here is so kind and wonderful. I have only been here for four weeks but I already feel like I am part of the Electrum family. Electrum is the only place I’ve worked at where I don’t constantly find myself checking if it’s time to go home. They provide us with a fully-stocked kitchen, FatSaks and blankets (you can literally live here).”
Jokes aside, it was an absolute pleasure learning from brilliant minds that are willing to teach and provide mentorship. I had a chance to contribute to crucial infrastructure serving South Africans today, which was quite stretching, but at the same time, fulfilling. My time here was accompanied by a lot of fun, whether that was out camping, in the office chatting over coffee, or battling it out in the paintball arena.”
“I went into the internship hoping to simply get a glimpse of the industry, and left with an experience far exceeding my expectations. It was my most enjoyable and educational experience yet!”
“Electrum is by far the most hip, young-adult-friendly company I’ve interned with. Their well-balanced work-hard play-hard company culture is rare as diamonds in this industry. Never in my entire undergrad have I learned as much and had as much fun doing it as I did during my Electrum internship.”
