About Trail of Bits
Trail of Bits helps secure the world’s most targeted organizations and products. We combine high-end security research with a real-world attacker mentality to reduce risk and fortify code.

As a cybersecurity research and consulting firm, we serve clients in the defense, tech, finance, and blockchain industries. We help with their most difficult security challenges by designing and building new technology, researching new techniques to advance the state of practice, and reviewing the security of the latest available technology products before they hit the market.

Our team consumes, produces, and presents research as a natural part of doing business. When we make new discoveries or developments, we strive to share our knowledge and release our tools as open-source. It’s a practice that’s earned us industry accolades and helped contribute to our double-digit bottom line growth.

Role
Trail of Bits offers unique remote, short-term internship opportunities called “Winternships” (Winter Internships). Winternships generally happen over your University’s winter break. You can get paid (~$2500) to work on a project that excites you and still spend time with your friends and family.

Collaboration and Mentorship
Trail of Bits takes advantage of the latest technology to get work done. Winternships will be organized and tracked through Slack, Google Meet, and Github. Projects will have a project inception, schedule, and debrief. You will work with our copywriter to publish an end-of-Winternship blog post that summarizes your work.
