Intern - Ember.js/Rails Engineer
The engineering team at Smile.io believes in being proud of your code, owning what you ship, and embracing new tools to increase developer happiness. We believe small, empowered teams can ship products with the highest impact. We're a small team of engineers working locally in Downtown Kitchener and remotely in Cyprus, Rhode Island & Romania.
You will work with our amazing dev team and contribute to our product in a meaningful way from the first day. You will have numerous projects to work on, so you will need to be nimble. You will also collaborate closely with our product team as we continue to improve our world class product.
As an intern, you will gain more experience in 4 or 8 months at Smile.io than a full year in any big corporate environment. If you're up for the challenge, want to make a real impact, and receive competitive pay, we want you! So, what are you waiting for? Tell us what you're interested in & what term you're available when you apply!
Our typical intern periods are January-April, May-August, September-December, but if you're looking for longer terms, let us know! Right now we're actively seeking candidates for May-August 2018!
You're an engineer who gets excited about turning ideas into reliable, production code. You appreciate clear code that can be read by others and yourself 6 months down the line. You enjoy collaborating with other developers, and get excited about millions of customers experiencing a feature you shipped just minutes ago.
We care more about what you’ve built in the past rather than the technologies you have used. It’s a plus if you've worked with technologies in our tech stack but it’s not a requirement.
Our beloved tech stack:
- Rails 5 backend
- Ember.js front end
- Postgres database
- Redis cache
- Heroku hosted
- Github managed
You will be successful in this role if you:
- Build software for fun
- Can be autonomous and self-driven
- Web APIs are your friends
- Beverages on Tap.
- $75 ecommerce credit every month. Yes, free credit that you get to spend at any of the more than 15,000 stores that run Smile.io.
- Newly renovated office complete with standing desks, an espresso machine, video games, two beer kegs, a ping pong table & a gym in the building.
- Casual dress code. We'll even give you a t-shirt and a hoodie to get you started.
- A work hard, play hard atmosphere and a supportive team dedicated to making sure you get the most out of your co-op experience.
We believe that diverse teams perform better and that fostering an inclusive work environment is a key part of growing a successful business. We welcome people of diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. We are an equal opportunity employer and are committed to work with applicants requesting accommodation at any stage of the hiring process.
