Summer internship for students interested in business and technology

What is it and why do we offer it?

  • We offer an unpaid summer internship to aspiring students. Ever wondered what it would be like working in a technology investment firm? Well, you’re in the right place.
  • We want to cultivate the prospects of our business and our future colleagues.
  • We can help you grow and learn and you can help us see things from a new perspective.

Who are we looking for?

  • 3-4 ambitious students from universities in the region
  • High-fliers who are not afraid to try new things and dive in head first.
  • Motivated learners with growth mindset and passion for technology.

    (An ideal profile would be a student finishing her/his 3rd-4th year at uni, having relevant work experience and having spent part of their life abroad. Don’t know if you tick the box? Submit your application and we’ll take a closer look.)

What we offer

  • Rockaway experience

    Growth opportunities

    You can expect to gain substantial experience from your internship at Rockaway. From Day 1, you will work with us on exciting projects: from assessing venture investments, defining strategy for portfolio startups, to building a modern e-commerce platform.

  • Rockaway good times

    Experiences

    “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” You will not be like Jack. You will not just sit in an office. We will show you where and how the magic happens: from e-commerce warehouse, to grocerie deliveries to startup tech floors. You can expect to join our summer party. You are in for quite a ride.

  • Rockaway cooperation

    Possibility of cooperation

    We are very excited about attracting young talent and offering people an opportunity to be part of a dynamic team and stimulating environment, where they can grow both professionally and personally. If all goes well and it is evident that you are a good fit at Rockaway, we would be happy to make you an offer at the end of the summer to continue your journey at Rockaway.

Why Rockaway?

  • When it comes to business, we know what we’re talking about – over the past three years, we have achieved a lot and have grown into a leading internet investor in the region.
  • We believe in quality. We identify value drivers in everything we do. We don’t do things “just because”. We work effectively and with purpose.
  • We are a young yet highly professional and motivated team, value individuality and promote an open and vibrant firm culture.

An experienced team will look after the interns:

Sponsors will set your daily agenda. They will be from all parts of Rockaway – from Venture Capital division to teams directly working in our portfolio companies.

Mentors will share with you know-how from specific areas of our business, giving you an insight into everything that we do at Rockaway.
