Make an Impact at X-ES

Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) was founded by graduates of local engineering programs, and it's a tradition we continue by offering exciting co-op and internship programs to students in our area. We're proud of our strong university partnerships and offer multiple student opportunities each year to coincide with their recruiting schedules.
X-ES hires for both Spring-Summer and Summer-Fall terms. Additional part-time work beyond the initial term is possible, and several students who complete the program have gone on to work full-time at X-ES after graduation. All student positions are located at our headquarters in the Madison area.

Why work with us?


Real World Experience

You’ll get practical experience doing real work, challenging your skills and preparing you for your future career. No busywork, guaranteed.


Make a Direct Impact

We have a culture of valuing self-motivated individuals who aren’t afraid to take initiative. We give you the opportunity to work hard and make real contributions.


Compensation & Culture

X-ES offers a competitive wage and health insurance to its student employees. We’re always flexible on hours, and there’s never a dress code.


Engineering Mentorships

You’ll work closely with our experienced professionals without being micromanaged. We want to give you the tools and knowledge you need to work freely.


Career Path Opportunities

You can take what you learn anywhere you want, but several students who complete our program go on to work full-time at X-ES after graduation.


Exciting Products

Past participants in our co-op program have told us our access to cutting-edge technology gives them a level of technical expertise their universities can’t match.

We're Hiring

This isn’t one of those co-ops where they send you to grab coffee and do a bunch of menial work their engineers don’t feel like doing. At X-ES, we give student employees the opportunity to make direct contributions to the company’s products, processes, and day-to-day operations.

We have a culture of valuing self-motivated individuals who aren’t afraid to take initiative, and that extends to our student employees. We also typically hire more students than other companies—around 15 to 20 students each term—so you’ll meet and work with lots of new people your own age in your own field of study. A co-op with X-ES is a great place to make friends and contacts you can carry with you after the program is over.

Upcoming Student Positions

X-ES will be posting new student opportunities in January 2024. Please check back then!
