Job Description
Increased use of data intensive applications by industry and consumers is placing new requirements on network infrastructure. Technology advances in wireless systems allow networks providers to continually expand the capability, speed and security of their networks. Intel continues to develop next generation, multi-core communication processors while delivering current products to the top infrastructure companies in the world. Intel's communication processors are deployed world wide and provide Layer 1, 2 and 3 processing, routing and security functions.

As an intern on our Validation team, you will be part of a diverse group of engineers responsible for developing and executing tests that emulate traffic flows similar to those in our customer's networks giving you the opportunity to learn how these complex networks process, manage and move critical data around the world.

The scope of work focus on test execution and results/coverage analysis. Utilities will be used or developed to collect statistics from various monitors while executing test cases in order to quantify functional operation. You will also develop methods and tools to interpret and organize the collected data across multiple test cases. You'll be given the opportunity to present your work at multiple times during your internship.

Qualified candidates will be motivated and self-driven. They will be willing to work in an collaborative and competitive environment where their work and contributions to the program are highly regarded.

Responsibilities may be quite diverse of a nonexempt technical nature. U.S. experience and education requirements will vary significantly depending on the unique needs of the job. Job assignments are usually for the summer or for short periods during breaks from school.
