Internships primarily take place at headquarters in Englewood, Colorado; however, some students will have the opportunity to work at our other offices. Our program encourages both professional and personal development of the intern, while exploring intense training opportunities and various social activities!

The 12-week journey allows you to gain knowledge about the EchoStar’s role in the fast-paced technology industry, strengthen your teambuilding skills, and explore breathtaking Colorado. Some of our interns have specific value-based projects, while others will work on daily assignments with our teams.

    I have been working at EchoStar full-time


    Good people to work with. Management does care and are trying hard to make things better for everyone.


    No work from home option.

    Advice to Management

    Let people do their work wherever and whenever they can - if this means easing up on the telecommuting, so be it.

    Software Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EchoStar (Denver, CO) in September 2010.


    Odd interview process. Initial screen was an online IQ test which took approx 2 hours to complete. Although I was interviewing for a management position, I suspect they probably administer this same test to everyone from call center employees to directors. Second interview was a technical phone screen which start with a series of basic programming skills questions, but after it became clear I was competent, mostly turned into a what projects have you worked on discussion. Onsite interview consisted of another IQ test, followed by a panel interview with a senior manager and two first line "managers" who probably would not have qualified as team leads in previous companies I had worked. HR contacts had declined to discuss reporting structure or salary range prior to the interview, but it became clear early in the interview that we had a disconnect on seniority level. They also distributed their benefits package to me, which indicated they covered 50% of the employees health insurance, provided up to a 2% 401k match, and no bonuses, stock options, or comp time.

    Good luck guys.
