Stryten Energy builds batteries. Batteries that power your world. From cars, trucks and boats to forklifts, railway, and UPS systems, Stryten batteries offer endurance and reliability. For our transportation batteries, we work directly with retail partners to put batteries on their shelves and then into your vehicles. For our motive and network power batteries, we sell directly to our customers.

Our Salina facility is part of the transportation division and is located at 413 E Berg Road. The internship will begin in May and end in August and will be full time (40 hours a week). This is a paid opportunity but housing is not provided so you must have both housing and transportation.


You will help with our increasing automation needs across our manufacturing facility. The role will have visibility in our pasting, assembly and formation operations from a manufacturing efficiency rate, operator safety, evaluating existing controls for improvements, and uptime standard. You will help Stryten as we drive to the next level of manufacturing automation. You will thrive on the responsibility and take pride knowing the impact you'll have in this position.
  • Use standard procedures, simulate, and test PLCs for automation specifically around the application of robotics and its integration with the battery manufacturing process
  • Where applicable, increase production speed at the current quality requirements and uptime
  • Grow knowledge of the facility team and improve documentation
  • Opportunity to present what you have learned at the end of your internship


We are looking for students:
  • Graduating between DEC 2024 and MAY 2026
  • Working towards BS in an Electrical Engineering, Robotics & Automation, or Mechanical Engineering degree
  • With a GPA of 3.0 or greater
  • You must have housing and transportation
  • The position is required to work onsite daily

Our environment is casual but professional and our interns are exposed to many senior level leaders. If this sounds good to you then it's your time to shine! We don't want our interns to sit on the sidelines - we want you to challenge us and provide creative ways to approach projects.
