Here at Aroa Biosurgery we’re unlocking regenerative healing for everybody.  This means we’re making and creating innovative regenerative healing products that are improving the lives of millions of people around the world.  We specialise in developing, manufacturing and exporting new and exciting soft tissue regeneration products utilising our successful Endoform extracelluar matrix (ECM) biomaterial.

We have been on quite a journey here at Aroa over the past 12 years and we continue to go from strength to strength.  We have really ambitious goals and we know that it’s our people & the culture of the business that sets us apart from the rest.  As a medium sized ASX listed business we operate in that lovely space where every person makes an impact on the future of the business.  We’re a roll your sleeves up business that loves operating with agility, pace and that entrepreneurial spirit that kiwis have been raised on.

This unique internship opportunity offers talented students the chance to learn about product development in the medical device industry.  The internship is expected to run over the Summer months from November 2021 through to February 2022 and will see you working alongside a great team of people on a wide range of projects and challenges. 

With positions available in the engineering fields of Mechanical, Mechatronics, Electrical, Biomedical and Computer Science, interns will be working together in our global head office in Auckland and have the opportunity to apply their technical knowledge and skills everyday on projects in the medical device industry.
