University Co-op Program


Kadro is a proud participant in the Cooperative Education Program at NC State University. University-sponsored Cooperative Education programs allow students to work multiple work- terms in a relevant field to their major to gain firsthand experience in the workforce. Kadro routinely maintains 5-6 computer science co-op students on rotation during each of the spring, summer and fall terms. It has proven to be a mutually beneficial experience for both Kadro and the co-op student. For more information: NC State University's Co-op Program


Kadro is full of intelligent, passionate professionals that are eager to teach you. As a co-op, you will get hands on, concrete experience working on every part of development from the database to the front-end. While working on a collaborative team, you will advance your skills alongside other co-ops and your mentors.

Kadro Co-op's are never assigned busy work. They are seen as a valuable member of the team right off the bat, and are assigned projects that will be seen in production. During your rotation you will have the opportunity to learn a large range of topics, such as:

  • HTML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery
  • Java, PHP
  • SQL
  • eCommerce Platforms
  • Responsive Web-Design
  • Git, CVS

The culture at Kadro is fun and welcoming. It's not hard to feel like you belong as everyone is quick to accept you as part of the team. When the weather is nice, the team takes a break to play Ultimate Frisbee at a local Raleigh park. You will enjoy company lunches and parties. The team stays knowledgeable on the most modern technologies through training meetings and Lunch-and-Learns, where the whole company gets together for lunch and a presentation about a specific topic.

Working as a co-op at Kadro has probably been the best academic decision I have made during my time at NC State. I have seen huge improvements in my skills both in school and at work, even after just my first co-op rotation. As I am completing my third rotation and looking towards graduation, I feel confident that I have been prepared for a full time job in this field. Joanna Pollard - NCSU Computer Science Senior

Everything I have learned at Kadro has helped me with my senior design project and is directly benefiting me in both my understanding and capability when creating new responsive and dynamic web pages. Being able to experience multiple languages and parts of web page development has allowed me to understand the processes it goes through and lets me see what I work best with and what I enjoy most. Kadro is eager to teach and does well to try and understand your strengths and weaknesses to make you better prepared for the work force. Josh Leggett - NCSU Computer Engineering Senior

"After a referral from Jeffrey Gitomer, I decided to explore how Kadro could help improve my online business in Swim Lessons University. It had been doing mediocre at best since 1999, but I believed I had a product that could easily fill a void in my industry. The problem, I felt, was it just was getting its potential online prescence to finally take off.... That is all changing now thanks to Kadro. In 2010, Swim Lessons University created a partnership with Kadro which may just turn out to be one of the best decisions I've made in my online business career. The guidance I have received from Kadro to help grow my business has been invaluable, not to mention their fantastic customer support, technical support, and even individual guidance and one on one consultations from their CEO, Rick Johnson. Without saying, I recommend Kadro without reservation!" Jim ReiserFounder and President, Swim Lessons University
