DoIT Internships

The Department of Innovation & Technology typically offers competitive paid and unpaid internships to highly motivated and qualified students. You can gain first-hand experience, valuable on-the-job training, and learn about innovation in City government.

From our thriving technology businesses to our savvy and connected citizens to our pioneering research institutions, Boston is a technologically advanced city. Our City government has been at the forefront of embracing digital technology as well -- building services like Citizens Connect, running a nationally-recognized social media presence, and supporting effective programs like Tech Goes Home to improve digital readiness.

We’re building a better Boston – and we’re using digital technology to do it. Finding top talent is critical to achieve our goals.

We look for undergrad and graduate students who can:

  • offer unique outside perspectives and experiences
  • provide enthusiasm and focused energy to high-priority initiatives
  • analyze priority projects that require the involvement of multiple, key stakeholders, and
  • become a change agent, and suggest improvements to commonly held assumptions.
