This full-time student position is for the Spring 2022 academic semester: January - May 2022


  • Mechanically inclined, must also be comfortable with electrical / electronics
  • Ability to collaborate as a team
  • Devise and write test procedures, facilitate tests and document findings in a clear report format

  • Perform competitive research and help facilitate design concept analysis & selection
  • Support troubleshooting of customer issues or addressing vendor quality concerns as they arise

Key Traits Needed to Join This Team:

  • Enterpriser – Spike is a small company (25 employees) and thus most departments are smaller. We are looking for someone to come in and feel comfortable working day to day without constant guidance from a superior.
  • Self-Motivated / Self-Starter – A clear objective and rough plan will be developed by the entire engineering team. We will rely on you to help build out this plan so that the objective can be reached. Day-to-day tracking of these plans and working toward the milestones will be part of your responsibilities.
  • Detail Oriented – For a small company, quality is in the details and our company prides itself on quality. A detailed, well-thought-out plan is needed to bring a project to fruition on time & on budget.
  • Organized / Planner – The engineering department is responsible for bringing a product from concept to prototype to testing to production quickly and efficiently. In order to contribute to this team, we are looking for people with organizational skills to help do this.
