“Interning at Sony Research India has been a fruitful, learning experience. From thinking about platforms in a simple frontend/backend architecture, I got to learn a lot about how to build end-to-end systems at the production level, and their orchestration and deployment on the cloud. I got the opportunity to work on real-life projects challenging daily life issues. I got exposure to practices followed at the industry level."

“Sony is one of those companies I’ve always looked at in reverential awe. The firm is known for its quality products and for having a strong foothold in various industries - ranging from consumer electronics to movies and music labels, throughout the world. Applying for this internship is probably one of the smartest decisions I made, and I’ve found my niche here in Sony Research India. Here we’re given the responsibility and the credit for taking key engineering decisions that directly affect the quality of the products we develop, at a production level. New ideas are always encouraged here, and this makes it a perfect environment for a young engineer, like myself, to try and come up with innovative ideas to build better products. We’re also surrounded by excellent scholars, scientists, and researchers, who constantly guide us to become better engineers and researchers. The experience and the exposure that I’ve received working here in Sony Research India is something that I’m very grateful for. Thank you, Sony!"

“I still remember the day I received the offer for working at Sony Research India. From that day till now, it has been a wonderful journey here. I got the opportunity to work on real life projects under guidance of such experienced people. Also, one thing which amazed me was the way in which I am allocated tasks during my internship, starting with easy level tasks of projects and then slowly the level was increased. Adding to it the amazing aspect of working at Sony is that the personal life of employees is always taken care off and if there is emergency or need of a leave, the process is super smooth. Ranging from working on Recommendation Systems of OTT Platform to celebrating festivals or any occasion, Sony Research India provides opportunity and experience in all aspects."
