Sirius XM is looking for a few college interns for various roles including in its engineering department in New York.
The unpaid internship postings are part of a new, combined website that Sirius XM quietly debuted last week. The site comes more than two years after the satellite radio companies merged. Visitors to the old sites are redirected.
The company lists college and university unpaid internship opportunities in several departments; it’s seeking engineering interns in its New York plant for summer internships. Recruiting for those begins in early March, the actual work begins in June, according to the site.
Interns in the broadcast engineering department would monitor studios and remotes, and help with basic studio maintenance, database management and call logging; they may be called on to lift equipment.
The Broadcast Network Operations Center monitors the signal path of the Sirius on-air product, including some 130 channels, Sirius Backseat TV and Sirius Internet Radio. Interns in this department would work with engineers documenting systems, creating reports, performing line tests and helping to complete project requests from programming departments.
Sirius and XM maintain two separate satellite systems; there were no engineering internships listed for its Washington studios.
