About the Role

Container Solutions, a professional services company focused on Cloud Native transformation for enterprises, is seeking a Cloud Native Engineer Intern to join us for 10-12 weeks during summer 2021.

Our engineers are at the forefront of the field, and regularly present at industry events. This position will give you the opportunity to work directly with them and learn through this collaboration from them.

What it takes
