ABOUT OUR INTERNSHIP PROGRAM:
We run a robust, paid internship program that allows you to work on meaningful projects, focus on professional development, and have fun. During our 12-week summer program, you’ll be encouraged to maximize your personal growth by asking questions, solving challenging technical problems, and participating in code review process. You will work closely with your mentor (and the development team) to implement production-level features. You will be working with (and contributing to) the most modern frameworks and libraries—after all, this is the mobile team at a mobile-first company!
During round table discussions throughout the summer, you’ll hear from leaders from different departments to learn how they fit into the organization and how they can impact your work. Other highlights of our internship program include: team outings, company-wide demo days, and benefits (commuter benefits, health insurance, fully stocked kitchen, learning & development opportunities, etc).
