Software Engineering Winter Intern 2021

Mountain View, United States

Spend your gap semester building real products for real users

What you will do

  • There are no intern projects. We treat you like full-time engineers and get you onboarded as quickly as possible
  • Ship code to users in your first week and every week after
  • Take ownership and lead your own project within 8 weeks
  • Work autonomously and set your timeline, architecture, and task breakdown
  • Start projects with the product team to understand the motivation and shape the specs
  • Explore and learn any technology or approach to get the job done
  • Write quality, performant, well-tested code in Python/Django and ES6/React
  • Collaborate with the other engineers over code review and constant discussion
  • Every other Monday, use your personal 10% time to be a better coder. Or just hack

Examples of past intern work include:

  • architecting the backend database schema and designing the REST API for our trading platform,
  • implementing the redesign and refactor of our entire investment search page in a reactive framework with front-end routing and browser history
  • building a process for users to upload and unpack zip files and replicate the folder structure in our database

What we are doing

We think it should be just as easy to trade in private companies as it is in public companies. Many believe that startup employee equity is only worth something if the company IPOs or is acquired. However, with a robust, centralized, efficient market to trade in private companies, that equity becomes liquid and is valuable from the day it vests. We are building that market for stockholders and institutional investors, and we could use your help doing it.

Other Details

  • Due to the current pandemic, our team (potentially including you!) is working entirely remotely
