IT Systems Analyst Intern – 2014 Summer Internship (PAID)

Ocean Spray Cranberries, Inc.

IT Systems Analyst Intern  – 2014 Summer Internship (PAID)

For 80 years, Ocean Spray’s logo has been an enduring symbol of what we stand for—Taste, health & heritage.  We are an agricultural cooperative formed in 1930 by three cranberry growers who shared a common goal of expanding the market for their crop.  In addition, we are North America’s leading producer of shelf-stable juice drinks, and continue to be the best-selling brand name in this category since 1981.

At Ocean Spray we understand the value of working together, while knowing each individual plays a vital role in the company’s success.  Our business has always been and continues to be built on  people from different backgrounds, coming together for a common goal.  The same sense of opportunity, resourcefulness and innovation on which the Cooperative was founded is what drives Ocean Spray today!


This role is a support position assisting a project team comprised of business analysts, developers and a project manager in the roll out of an in-house built application replacing an outdated existing system.  This application is used to track grower contracts, acreage, receipts, payment and equity.  Assisting with functional testing, communicating business testing results to the development team, user guide creation and assistance with building presentation slides are some of the activities to be completed.
