OPNFV Internship Opening: Containerized VNF running in Kubernetes

The Linux Foundation, Remote

Non-profit technology trade association promoting and protecting collaborative development

Open Platform for NFV (OPNFV) facilitates the development and evolution of NFV components across various open source ecosystems. Through system level integration, deployment and testing, OPNFV creates a reference NFV platform to accelerate the transformation of enterprise and service provider networks.  

OPNFV Internship is for University or College students who are interested in contributing to the OPNFV project. Each intern will work with a mentor in the OPNFV community to complete a project either in 3 months (full time 40 hours a week) or 6 months (part time 20 hours a week). This is a paid internship program and the internship project can start throughout the year (i.e. not just limited to summer in the northern hemisphere). As an open source project, each intern will work remotely from his/her location of choice. Finally, we welcome interns from anywhere in the world.
