Purchasing & Accounting Intern
Admin | Hybrid in Boston, MA | Full Time
AeroShield is looking for interns for Summer 2023 and Summer-Fall 2023 Co-ops!
Windows are critical elements of comfort and productivity, but in the United States they cost $40 billion in heating and cooling energy. But what if we were no longer forced to choose between insulating our walls for indoor comfort and accessing natural daylight and beautiful outdoor views? New super-insulating material developed by AeroShield is designed to drop inside existing double-pane window manufacturing to create a window 50% more insulating – this can enable $10 billion in energy savings and >500 million tons of CO2 reduction (nearly half of current US homes’ annual emissions)!
We aren’t the only ones excited: founded out of MIT in 2019, AeroShield has established manufacturing R&D activities in Hyde Park (Boston), MA since March of 2020. The company has raised over $7 M in funding to begin producing prototypes and is working with 4 DOE national labs and has earned recognition in Forbes 30 Under 30: Energy.
AeroShield’s Purchasing & Accounting Intern(s) will help build out processes and reporting to track AeroShield's purchasing of materials and equipment. They will be responsible for inputting and tracking all AeroShield purchases, and assist the Director of Operations with monthly transactions and reporting. As AeroShield's finance function grows, this role will get to see first hand how to implement new practices in a manufacturing company.
We expect this internship to be hybrid, with some work being conducted at home or out of Greentown Labs, and some site visits and in-person time at AeroShield’s manufacturing facility in Hyde Park, MA.
Potential Internship Projects / Activities:
Manage AeroShield's Accounts Payable email, and input data for AeroShield's monthly accounting close
Work with AeroShield R&D team and vendors to set up a new receiving procedure for purchases, and a new procedure for returning damaged or incorrect shipments
Organize all receipts and shipping documents
