Meet our Engineering Interns!

MurCal always welcomes talented college students to work alongside our team members on various engineering projects in a collaborative environment. This provides them with hands on “real world” experience. Our interns play a crucial role on their teams and are involved in important projects that create real impact. Our hope is that they’ll sharpen their technical skills, gain valuable experience, develop personally and professionally, and ultimately bring fresh perspectives to their future careers. The internship program has been so successful in the past that we’ve been lucky enough to hire several of them as full-time engineers, and each and every one of them have proven to be solid contributors to the product and team.
