Skeo Solutions offers a multidisciplinary approach to navigating the complex issues facing local communities, state governments and federal agencies. Using tailored analysis, we provide innovative and collaborative solutions to pressing issues in environmental stewardship, social equity and economic opportunity.
Our relatively small, dedicated staff represents a broad range of disciplines and skill sets. Our diversity and size allow us to be nimble, quickly forming project teams that are responsive to our clients’ complex technical needs while providing highly personalized customer service.
With staff located throughout the United States, we provide a geographic reach seldom found in a firm our size. Using state-of-the-art information sharing and collaboration tools and an unequaled commitment to teamwork, we deliver innovative, just-in-time solutions for our clients.
We are seeking a motivated, energetic, flexible and earnest bilingual Spanish/English salaried intern to join the Skeo team. A primary responsibility will be working with Skeo team members to provide a variety of technical assistance services to Spanish-speaking and other communities dealing with environmental problems. The selected candidate will also provide support to numerous other projects depending upon skill set. Ideal candidates will have exceptional communication skills, strong research and writing skills, be able to multi-task as well as perform quick turnaround tasks, and be willing to travel for 20 or more trips per year at various locations throughout the U.S. Work will be performed in a team setting and the selected candidate will report to a Skeo Senior Associate. Interns are expected to work fulltime (approximately 40 hours/week) for an annualized salary of $30,000 - $35,000 and are eligible for full benefits (including health, dental and life insurance, paid time off, and 401k participation with an employer match). This is a telework position. This position will be subject to an employment contract with a term of up to one year. Upon completion of the internship, interns demonstrating outstanding performance may be given consideration for open Associate positions; however, a right of continued employment is neither expressed nor implied. Throughout the term of employment, both employee and employer will retain the right to terminate employment in accordance with state law.
