Become a MoMath intern – come play with us as we build one of New York’s newest and most innovative interactive museums

College Technical Internship

The National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) is a growing institution that provides insight into the evolving, creative, human, and aesthetic nature of mathematics to a diverse audience of all ages. Its interactive exhibits and stimulating programs encourage inquiry, spark curiosity, and reveal the wonders of math.

MoMath is seeking a highly competent intern for a summer 2017 position in NYC, to assist in full stack systems development and enhancement for this modern, highly automated museum. The Museum uses a wide range of technologies to build innovative interactive and exploratory exhibits. A primary responsibility will be to choose at least one exhibit, website enhancement, or feature request and implement that project successfully over the course of the summer. Other responsibilities will include investigating and resolving reported software issues both in the Museum’s many high-tech exhibits and, occasionally, in its administrative offices. The list of specific projects will be available shortly before the summer assignment begins.

This role is an excellent fit for a technical omnivore who enjoys exercising a varied set of skills and who thrives on the challenge of mastering new technologies. A demonstrated passion for some aspect of the creative use of technology is required. Both undergraduate and graduate level students will be considered.

This position pays $5,000 per month.
