TCG portfolio companies are based in various cities, and internship opportunities will be fully remote or hybrid-remote. The Summer Engineering Intern will report into selected portfolio company leadership, and gain exposure to the inner workings of their business and learn what drives their success and growth.

In addition to owning and contributing to engineering and development-specific projects, this Intern will be a part of a broader TCG internship curriculum that includes a speaker series, mentorships with direct portfolio company managers and TCG investors, broader career development, leadership presentations, and opportunities to forge meaningful relationships.
