Written by Remote Research Technician (Current Employee) from Laurel, MD on September 19, 2018
Worked in the space exploration sector (SES) as a summer intern (twice) and two years as a remote part-timer. Completed two fascinating projects, really enjoyed the work environment. The management can be a little unwieldy (as in, they don't always seem to know what to do with interns), but you'll be supervised by a mentor who shepherds you along.
