Summer Internship @Avira: welcome on board!

Our battle against malware and viruses has just become easier thanks to our summer internship. This year we decided to look for students willing to learn more about Python – the programming language which can easily be picked up by beginners.

The interns will help us improve the user experience of our Avira Online Essentials. By using this dashboard, you can manage your security across all your devices in a very simple way.

Oana, a 19 year old student at the Mathematics and Computer Science Faculty in Bucharest, is very happy to have become part of the Avira team for this summer. At any other time it’s really hard to combine school hours with an internship program: Classes are pretty difficult to follow and the schedule is often loaded.

“I just finished my first year at the university and did not want to waste my summer. Instead I’ve chosen to be productive and to learn new things. Plus the ice cream here tastes great, so it’s the perfect timing for an internship. The team is very friendly and I believe this will help me develop my knowledge in Python much more quickly”, said Adi, who is 20 years old and studying at the Faculty of Automatic Control and Computer Science.

Doru is 22 years old and attends the same faculty as Adi. “I was impressed when I had my second interview with Mihai Danilescu, the team leader for the Cloud Services & Infrastructure Department. He told me that this is a very good opportunity for me to learn good practices: I will be able to do stuff quicker and with fewer mistakes but I will also be capable to appreciate the importance of successful teamwork.”

“I liked my first day here a lot. I think it will be an exciting summer”, said Octavian, 24 years old and a student of the Faculty of Automatic Control and Computer Science.

And he is right of course because we promise them a summer full of great challenges for their future careers but also, quality time with all the Avirans. Watching football games or having a barbecue on our rooftop terrace can be the perfect choice for a hot summer evening. This is how #WeAvira do it!
