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. Know what else makes the perfect workplace? You're able to choose where that is—Firespring, home—or that coffee shop that gets you going in the morning.

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.
  • Hours20-40 hours/week, flexible
  • 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).

Our company-wide social and recreational activities are sure to do just that.
