About the job

No more noisy fans and inefficient heat sinks. We’re looking for a hands-on mechanical engineer to Join Corintis as an intern, to design the IT cooling solutions of the future. If you're passionate about building new things, breaking things, and making it better, then we’re looking for you.

About Corintis

Corintis is a startup that is a provider of advanced semiconductor cooling technologies. Some of the biggest challenges of our lifetime, from climate modeling to drug discovery, constantly require more computing power. More powerful chips generate more heat; extracting this heat is a major challenge for our future.

Current cooling systems are not only limited but also wasteful; cooling data centers consume more power than London and New York combined. At Corintis, we remove these limitations by integrating cooling directly inside the chip. We enable the sustainable computing of the future to address the biggest global challenges.

Working at Corintis

Corintis offers a friendly and team-orientated workplace bringing together a diverse group of nationalities to solve the biggest computing challenges of tomorrow. Based on the EPFL campus near Lausanne, we are closely connected to the local ecosystem and are located a few minutes’ walk from Lake Geneva.
