Nerve currently offers unpaid Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall internships in development and business support areas that provide a hands-on introduction to the inner workings of a technology startup in the healthcare industry. An internship at Nerve involves a combination of general day to day tasks associated with our business, opportunities for researching products and concepts, and occasions to attend organized events.

The majority of internships take place in Shadyside. Select internships divide time between our Shadyside location and Carnegie Mellon University, at our shared incubator space, in Oakland.

Working at Nerve is both challenging and rewarding. We are invested in our clients and our employees and seek smart, talented and self-motivated people to join our roster.
