Tennessee Valley Authority

About Tennessee Valley Authority

The Tennessee Valley Authority provides electricity for 153 local power companies serving 10 million people in Tennessee and parts of six surrounding states, as well as directly to 57 large industrial customers and federal installations. We don't get taxpayer funding; rather our revenues come from sales of electricity. TVA also provides flood control, navigation and land management for the Tennessee River system, and assists local power companies and regional governments with their economic development efforts.

Our mission is just as relevant today as it was nearly nine decades ago when Congress created TVA: harness the potential of the rich resources in the Tennessee Valley region to make life better for the people who call it home. We are inspired daily to pursue new ideas and innovative solutions to improve our service to you. The 10,000 employees of TVA form an experienced, talented team committed — each and every day — to improving the quality of life for the approximately 10 million people we serve.


Software Engineering Intern

February 2022 Chattanooga, TN
“The company culture is great. My team was just being put together as I was hired so it was relatively new. I thought I wouldn't be able to contribute much starting out, but my manager included me in so many opportunities to use my skillset and grow. I love working with my team, and most of the others I've met here are all great people! I love working with technology, and this company has so many new ideas and innovations to show every week. Data, robotics, and so many neat things to learn more about. The hybrid work environment is also great. I was a student at UAB (college in Alabama), but I was able to stay connected to everyone and work efficiently from home with no issues. My work schedule was also flexible since I was still taking classes. Great work/life balance!”
