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 collaborative environment. Our average day is spent coding, interacting, laughing (probably at Wendy) and exceeding the expectations of our clients. In our opinion, that’s the perfect workplace.

Qualifications

  • Collaboration is huge. If you're a team player, let’s talk.
  • We value innovative web programming and interactive development. If you have the skills, be ready to prove it.
  • In the fight against perfection paralysis, you give your absolute best to meet deadlines, yet you’re still willing to release your project into the wild when the time comes.
  • 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

  • SalaryHourly, we like to take care of our interns and your parents will like that you don’t need to hit them up…as much.
  • Hours20 hours/week, flexible
  • PTONot yet, rookie.
  • 401(k)—See “PTO.”
  • FunMillions 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 BenefitsNot 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.
