Software Engineering Intern (Paid)Submitted by Mike L. on July 14, 2011 - 4:02pm.
Panoptic Development (www.panopticdev.com) is a software engineering firm based in PROVIDENCE, RI and SAN FRANCISCO, CA. We are a profitable company developing custom web and mobile software for companies ranging from startups to enterprise organizations. We’re experts in open-source technologies and dynamic languages like Ruby and Python.
We're founded and run by a team of successful entrepreneurs who have broad experience in web applications, web services and software. We are self-motivated, proactive, and good at prioritizing. And, most of all, we enjoy the challenge of creating something new. We're looking for talented software engineers and web developers with a similar perspective.
Panoptic is a team-owned organization where employees have an ownership stake in the company. Although we have brick-and-mortar offices, our team is fully dispersed. All of our development processes facilitate remote working.
JOB DESCRIPTION: SOFTWARE ENGINEERING INTERN
Panoptic Development is seeking part-time interns who have completed at least two years of coursework towards a degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or a closely related field. For many software practitioners, academic studies in Computer Science and Engineering are crucial in introducing theories and concepts that are difficult to learn, but important to know. Our internship program will augment those studies by exposing interns to the parts of the software development process that CS and Engineering curricula don't have time to get to.
Interns will be expected to contribute to our small team by analyzing user needs, collaborating on software designs, implementing code, rigorously testing for functionality, robustness, compatibility, and performance, managing infrastructure, and writing documentation. More broadly, the company expects its interns to contribute to the success of its products.
This is a great opportunity for an undergraduate to gain experience with the latest generation of dynamic programming languages, most of which don’t receive attention in computer science curricula. It’s also a great opportunity for students to contribute to the open source software ecosystem.
- Specific experience in web application development and/or database design
- Network architecture, linux server deployment, and performance tuning experience
- Strong interest or experience in open-source software
