Summer is almost upon us and with it comes summer internships.


The tech industry is famous for its internships. With more open jobs than the industry can fill, companies use internship programs to scout for talent and to give them a leg up when making offers to graduates.

And that means interns in tech are up for some pretty exciting experiences, full of interesting work, parties, and great pay.

Job hunting site Glassdoor sifted through its giant databases of self-reported salaries to come up with this list of the best-paying tech internships, based on at least 25 salary reports in US dollars by US-based interns in the past year.

In cases where companies offered the same median monthly pay, the company with the greater number of salary reports entered by former interns into Glassdoor's site receives higher rank.
