Date: Feb 3, 2019

Location: Milwaukee, WI, 53202 New York, NY, 10003

An internship with Northwestern Mutual is so much more than a summer job or resume booster.  Carefully selected from universities across the country, with majors ranging from Accounting to Technology, our interns bring unique ideas and perspectives to our organization. In return, interns gain a real-world business perspective through hands-on learning and meaningful work. You’ll join a fun and relaxed work culture and participate in social and professional events. Our internship program ensures that you are immersed in everything that Northwestern Mutual can offer.


Your Northwestern Mutual colleagues will take time to teach you things that you can’t learn in the classroom, preparing you for your post-grad opportunity.  You’ll join a fun and relaxed work culture, enjoy lunch with your colleagues every day, and participate in social, professional, and philanthropic events. Our internship program ensures that you are immersed in everything that Milwaukee and Northwestern Mutual can offer.

What You’ll Do:

  • As a technical, hands-on Test Engineer, your job is to integrate into the general software engineering team and help break our software
  • Work under the guidance of a Test Engineering Manager of a team with an already-established, mature testing process to conduct stress testing, exploratory testing, and automation testing
  • Learn basic software testing theory, how to properly determine type of testing required for a project, and write a lot of code
  • Successfully get through our test engineering boot camp; integrate into an ongoing project and successfully demonstrate that you can perform basic test analysis for any new functionality being developed; and understand the basics of either node.js or Java and the respective automation framework to the point in which you can contribute basic automation tests with little guidance
  • Collaborate with other interns on assigned case study to be presented at the conclusion of the internship


Who You Are:

  • A fast learner and self-starter - you’ll work with colleagues who are incredibly talented, and always willing to share knowledge and a helping hand, so your willingness to take ownership of the outlined goals and make things happen is imperative
  • An empowered collaborator - you contribute ideas and initiative to your work with minimal supervision, and actively interact with team members whether near or far
  • A skilled communicator - you quickly elicit feedback, translate requirements, and troubleshoot issues with colleagues at all levels and from a wide variety of backgrounds


What You’ll Need:

  • Pursuing a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Computer Science or related field
  • Minimum 3.0 GPA and 6 – 9 credits in Computer Science or related courses
  • Proficiency in either Java or node.js (coursework counts as proficiency)
  • Curiosity - asking a lot of questions and enjoying exploration is going to be your best asset


The Northwestern Mutual experience is about the opportunity. It is without barriers, without ego — where feedback is essential, and collaboration is second nature. It clears the way for inspiration, innovation, and your impact to take hold.
