Here are a few testimonials from the participants of previous Sberseasons Internships

Valery Sopin

Data Science Intern, post-graduate student at Higher School of Economics

For me, Sberseasons was not only about how things work at the Data Science Department. My supervisors told me a lot about the work of other departments and the company’s structure. We had access to the virtual library, and heads of other departments often came to our lectures and training sessions to win us over to their teams. I think it is the right strategy because you need to know a little about everything to choose what’s yours.

Anastasia Morozova

Cybersecurity Intern, student of HSE Tikhonov Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics

The internship gave me a better understanding of working with big data and its analysis. I also learned how the bank works on the inside. We were given tours of various facilities and departments with limited access so that we could see how things work. Now, whenever I come to Sberbank as a customer, I understand the architecture of processes.
