The Software Engineering Intern
(Applications for 2023 Intake Only)
The StaffAny Software Engineering Internship is designed to coach and bring interns into the world of production software engineering. After a gradual ramp-up over 6-8 weeks, we’ll ease you into feature engineering as a feature lead. You’ll start off as co-feature leads with other engineers, and eventually get to take on your own features and projects. You’ll get to lead and take on large, expansive projects with ongoing requirements and changes. You’ll develop your technical knowledge across the stack as you take on challenging projects that span multiple platforms. When you leave, you’ll have a deep understanding of what a small and agile team of engineers is capable of and how to deliver maximum value for customers and the business.
The main hard requirement is experience in programming. Production experience is a plus, but not required. You should have a thirst for learning and have an appreciation for business and product requirements.
- You should know how to code!
- Attitude for learning
- Appreciate business and product requirements
- Experience with our stack is a big plus
- Typescript, React, React Native, NodeJS, HapiJS, Postgres
