Current Students

As we have grown as a company, our internship program has grown along with it. By being exposed to real world experience, you will be able to get a feel for how your specific area of expertise functions on a daily basis. There are a wide range of job functions that you will be exposed to that are not taught in the class room. Our Internship and Work Study/Co-Op Programs bridge the gap between the theoretical and practical aspect of any full-time position. During your time with us, you will work with great people; and on projects and technology that will change the way the world secures data.

What Our Interns and Co-Ops are Saying

What Our Interns and Co-Ops are Saying

"Looking back at the time I have spent at Proofpoint, my internship provided a platform which introduced a perfect corporate work culture. I learned some mind boggling skills and also had a chance to leverage what I have learned in my studies and apply it to real challenges."

"When I started applying for internships, I always wanted to be a part of organization like Proofpoint. Proofpoint allowed me to gain commendable recognition in such a short period of time in the security industry."

"Along with all the technical exposure I have received at Proofpoint, I have also experienced a great deal of personal growth. The diverse culture of this organization and the colleagues, who have been tremendously understanding, have always made me feel welcome and accepted at Proofpoint. Moreover, they motivated me to make contributions as a part of the team. Proofpoint has successfully built an outstanding and extremely helpful staff. All of my co-workers were determined to innovate within the company which motivated me to work even harder and help make a change."

—Sorabh, Engineering Intern

"The Proofpoint culture to me is one of teamwork, innovation, success, and generosity. Every day is a constant reminder that teamwork leads to success, whether it be through marketing campaigns or when different departments in the company come together to ensure that an opportunity closes as smoothly and as promptly as possible. Teamwork is also an important factor in the constant push for innovation. There is a continuous push in meetings and presentations for development of new products as well as improvement, change, and betterment of our existing products. With incredible teamwork and innovation comes success. All of my interactions with colleagues have pointed to a goal-oriented mindset to succeed, which I believe has played a tremendous role in our ability to do so. Lastly, the moral obligation to help those in need is not lost in all of our success. I have witnessed an overwhelming amount of generosity from everyone at the company, and perhaps more importantly, a drive to increase contributions to our community."

—Tania, Marketing Intern

"When I joined as summer intern, I received a big welcome from the company as a whole which filled me with energy to start my work. In any organization the work is priority, but here in proofpoint they make your work more interesting by organizing different events like hackathon etc., where you get whole lot of ideas to work and explore. Employee rewards after every quarter encourage employees to work harder and sincerely. The whole working culture make you feel positive and makes you concentrate on work easily."
