We are seeking summer interns with an interest in pursuing a career in Software Engineering for the summer of 2022. All positions are full-time temporary and are paid at a competitive hourly rate. All interns will work onsite at our company headquarters in Herndon, Virginia and will work side by side with experienced software engineering mentors.
Our summer interns work on real programs and real problems. Interns’ work is integral to our overall program goals and gives them the experience of working on an Agile-based software development team, using version control methods, provides an introduction to the Scrum process and more. There will be opportunity to provide specific input into the software components of the system, including hardware/software trade offs, database design, software reuse, as well as requirements analysis and synthesis.
The work is full-stack development and could include developing storefronts, incorporating custom machine learning models and writing code to develop full-stack software programs in a cloud-based and/or near real-time environment.
