Job Description

Software Engineering Intern—pretty straight forward, don’t you think?

But Firespring looks for something different in the interns we hire. In addition to producing some stellar code, our engineers work in a highly proactive environment. Our average day is spent coding, problem solving, strategically thinking, and exceeding the expectations of our clients. In our opinion, that’s the perfect workplace.

If you agree, read on.

Qualifications

  • Do you take the initiative to work independently yet work well with a team? Let's talk. 
  • You’re familiar with object-oriented languages like PHP or Ruby.
  • Do you pretty up the world around you with web development languages like CSS, HTML(5) and Javascript?
  • Is your thinking driven by patterns similar to MVC and Three Tiered Architecture?
  • You’re not a fool. You know constant learning is the key to staying on top, and you’re not afraid to learn a few new things.

Compensation and Benefits

  • Salary—Hourly, we like to take care of our interns and your parents will like that you don’t need to hit them up…as much.
  • Hours—20 hours per week during the school year. 40 hours per week during the summer. Flexible scheduling. 
  • PTO—Not yet, rookie.
  • Fun—Millions of people go to work, punch the clock from 8 to 5 and hate every moment of it—that’s not the case here. We have an indoor slide, a game room that includes shuffleboard, a pool table, a foosball table, a Ping Pong table and more. To put it mildly, we’re serious about having fun.
  • Miscellaneous Benefits—Not all benefits are about the Benjamins, baby. Some of the things you’ll enjoy while working here include unlimited soda, tea, lemonade and beer (of course only if of age). And don’t worry about your duds—casual is the dress code here. Still looking to make your cubicle-shackled intern friends jealous of your new gig? Our company-wide social and recreational activities are sure to do just that.
