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 program in Summer 2019, you’ll be encouraged to maximize your personal growth by asking questions, solving challenging technical problems, and participating in code review processes. You will have the freedom to work on various projects at Guidebook, while working closely with your mentor (and the development team) to implement production-level features. 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).
What’s unique about Guidebook’s internship program is how deeply embedded you will be in the company during the 12 weeks you are here. The 1:1 mentor to intern relationship we maintain in this startup environment guarantees you will be working on real projects and actively contributing to the business, codebase, or product within your first weeks. If you’re looking for the opportunity to define the trajectory of a fast-growing startup, we’d love to meet you.
