Explorer Program: Join us for a six month internship!

Our Explorer Program is a training ground for students interested in the intersection of software, hardware, space, and communication. To expand our team, we are constantly on the lookout for interns with a transdisciplinary background, an eye for design, and an enthusiasm for working with systems.

Learn, develop, and innovate

The Explorer Program offers an environment for you to find where your talents lie and discover how you would like to develop.

Our work is diverse and spans across our five different fields of expertise. As an Explorer you can work on projects in Communicative Architecture, Digital Museum Exhibitions, Interactive Brand Spaces, Transportation Experiences or Digital Transformation. We work across different project phases: from creation, planning to production, and on-site implementation. This allows Explorers to gain an overview of the different processes involved in realizing successful projects. In parallel with our commissioned work, we continuously improve our workflows and in-house infrastructure. Or we build gimmicks.

Above and beyond working in interdisciplinary project teams, each Explorer is also accompanied by a mentor for their half-year internship. This creates an environment for you to absorb new perspectives, receive feedback, develop, and learn how to innovate.

And the workshop offers plenty of space for experimentation.
Each explorer is guided by a mentor throughout their 6-month internship.

As an Explorer, you are welcome to creatively experiment, prototype ideas, and expand your skill-sets during projects or on the open workbench, while also learning how to manage your time efficiently.

During my internship I was able to refine my programming skills, draft concepts, and plan and execute them across different types of media technology systems. It was great to bring in my own ideas, present them to clients and eventually implement them.

MESO Team spirit

In addition to professional knowledge, soft skills play a key role in our creative processes. We are a committed team, working together in a hands-on, solution-oriented way.

We support the biannual, Frankfurt-based media arts festival, NODE Forum for Digital Arts. All MESO employees are invited to take part in NODE’s many educational activities: whether it’s creative coding workshops, lectures, talks, exhibitions or performances.

MESO cultivates a supportive and friendly company atmosphere: we regularly cook together, learn from each other, and like to exchange ideas beyond the scope of our projects. By working closely together, we nurture a company culture that enables individuals to grow beyond their professional backgrounds, discovering new skills and talents.

Planning to write your thesis or diploma?

Many of our previous interns have graduated while working for us. We can take an active role and assist with in-depth knowledge and advise you on choosing the right topic.
