Cloud System Administration Internship

Company Overview:
In the past six years, Zoro US has grown from a group of 6 people working out of a 2,000 square foot building, offering fewer than 100,000 products to a group of 240+ working out of a 60,000+ square foot building, offering more than 1,700,000 unique products. We've been successful in growing in large part due to our team. Zoro hires bright and hard:working individuals that are intent on growing our business and serving our customers. And we're looking to grow further

Zoro is currently offering one paid internship for a passionate and driven individual interested in joining
our team
for the summer of 2018. This is a full:time opportunity and will start early June and end in late August. The start and end dates can be flexible based on your semester schedule.

About the IT Infrastructure Team:
Cybersecurity is one of the main focus areas in the IT Infrastructure team. We focus on day:to:day maintenance and security of the website, partner with our parent company during IT audits and compliance projects, and constantly ensure the safety of our customer data. We are a small, but mighty team and serve as project partners to almost every area of the business.

The Cloud System Administration Intern helps maintain Zoro's cloud:based IT infrastructure by providing supplemental operational support and maintenance of our systems in our AWS and Google Cloud environments. This includes but is not limited to system maintenance, system improvements, deploying new cloud services, and maintaining cybersecurity best practices.

The individual selected will be in their Junior or
year working towards a degree in IT (or related field) with a working "hands on" knowledge of the Linux operating system. It would be helpful if the candidate has experience or knowledge of the AWS and/or Google Cloud environments but this is not required.

Our team is small and uncharacteristically friendly and personable. Unlike some other options for interns, an intern at Zoro is fully embraced by the team and will contribute to work that actually matters. Our company celebrates fresh ideas and welcomes contributions and questions.

We realize that many students do not have deep exposure to "real world" challenges of using cloud technologies to run a business. Our ideal intern needs to show interest, aptitude and intellectual curiosity : not necessarily mastery of specific technologies or techniques. In return, we offer a 90:day experience as a 'hands:on' cloud administration experience. We'd like this candidate to be graduating in Spring 2018, Fall 2018, Spring 2019, or Fall 2019.

Additional Information:

Zoro is an Equal Opportunity Workplace and an Affirmative Action Employer.

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, or protected veteran status.
