At Carbonite, we offer internships and co-op opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students in many areas of study, so chances are we’ve got the perfect opportunity for you. If you’re a driven, ambitious student who welcomes a challenge, you’re half way to becoming a Carbonista already!

As an intern, there’s nothing better than feeling like a full-time employee who is really making an impact, and at Carbonite we treat you just like one of us. Whether you’re collaborating with engineers, user experience experts, accountants or marketers, you’ll have the opportunity to own your role, work on projects that we’re actually deploying to our customers, and make a real contribution during your time here.

When you join our team, we expect you to bring your “A” game, and come ready to learn and share your ideas. Remember, we see YOU as the future of our company. So if you show us you’re indispensable, we will find a way to hire you full-time. In fact, many of our interns are offered full-time positions upon graduation.

Since we treat you like a Carbonista, we also give you many of the same perks, including flexible hours, free meals, snacks and drinks, volunteering opportunities and more. Plus, you get to work in one of the coolest offices in Boston!

Beyond the traditional perks, we want you to make the most of your time at Carbonite. As part of our Mentorship Program, you’ll learn about what it’s like to work in different areas of our company. We’ll also have Lunch and Learns just for you, where you’ll get to meet with senior management to discuss everything from our company history to their career experiences.

From our hi-tech, Star-Wars-themed office in downtown Boston, to our free lunch Fridays and flexible work hours, we strive to keep our employees happy! Here are some of the perks you can expect to enjoy as part of our team:

Cool Spaces


We don’t like to brag, but we’d say our office is pretty darn cool, from our modern collaborative floor plan with its Star Wars theme, to writeable walls all over the place, lots of alternative work spaces, and in-house ping pong. Our comfortable atmosphere lends itself perfectly to our “no dress code” policy, where you can wear whatever works for you.

And your lunch hour and after-work life will never be boring again. We’re located in the heart of downtown Boston, just feet away from public transportation, bars and restaurants, and shopping galore.

Oh, and did we mention our Maine office houses a game room with video games, ping-pong, foosball and a bowling alley downstairs? Yup, we’ve got it all.


Benefits are important to all of us, and Carbonite offers exactly what you need. Our employees receive medical, dental and vision insurance, as well as 401K matching and tuition reimbursement. And, we don’t stop there.

Many of our employees are commuters and we know the added stress of having to locate and pay for transportation, so we offer subsidized parking directly underneath our Boston building, as well as discounted public transportation passes.

And, who doesn’t love free food? Our employees enjoy free breakfast every Monday to help them ease into the work week, as well as free lunch every Friday. We also provide free snacks and drinks throughout the day to keep your belly full, your brain caffeinated and your thirst quenched.

And if that’s not enough, we also celebrate the hard work of our employees with quarterly and holiday outings.

Work/Life Balance


At Carbonite, we recognize the importance of work life balance. Not only do we allow for flexible work schedules, but we offer unlimited paid vacation time and the option to telecommute/work from home. We make it easy for you to take the time you need, when you need it.

We want you to stay healthy too. Carbonistas enjoy discounted gym memberships, free yoga classes, road races, nutrition coaching, chair massages, eyebrow waxing and more! If you’re passionate about health and wellness like we are, you can even join our Wellness Club.

Volunteering and giving back to the community are also near and dear to us. Carbonistas donate time and goods to numerous charities including Cradles to Crayons, Evergreen Center and Greater Boston Food Bank. We also host blood drives, food and clothing donations and more. Have an idea for our next community service project? We’d love to hear it!

    Amazing culture and focus on employees. Strong vision with intelligent and capable people to deliver on it. Willingness to invest in people and technology. Leadership with a point of view, providing a true sense of purpose for employees.


    Commute into Boston if you live outside of the city. But a commute to anywhere is relative. Right?!

    Advice to Management

    Sustain the culture. It is really nice to come to work every day!

    Marketing Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Carbonite.


    Had a phone interview with an HR Representative, and less than a week later had a phone discussion with the hiring manager. Both interviews went really well! After my conversation with the hiring manager, I felt extremely confident and thought at the very least I would be given an opportunity to have an onsite interview to further make my case on why I am the best candidate for the position.

    Less than 48 hours later, I find out that they are moving forward with other candidates who better fit there needs, even though I honestly don't know how much more I could have said during my phone interview to convince them that the job role would have been a great fit based on my experiences and background. I find this reason very generic and very vague, and the prompt time it took to come to this conclusion I find to be very concerning, and dare I say a little shady. I find many hiring managers these days have a very one-dimensional mindset, and its no wonder why people are finding it so difficult to get ahead or promoted these days. Finding the perfect 10 candidate doesn't always mean that person is indeed the best candidate.
