Engineering Intern - Mixmax - SF

"Any generalist engineer with javascript background and some track record of shipping product either at a company or via open source is great."

At Mixmax, our mission is building the impossible: a next-gen communications platform to make professional communications as rich, interactive, and developer-friendly as the web. We’re looking for talented full-stack engineers to join us in this mission.

We’re currently hiring interns for Fall ‘17, Spring ‘18, and Summer ‘18. We ask interns to commit to three months at minimum.

What will I be working on?

As an intern you’ll be responsible for designing, implementing, and shipping independent end-to-end projects alongside the rest of the team. We’re a small but very skilled team deeply invested in your professional development. You will have the ability to contribute to broad strategic discussions. We want to help you learn how a successful software startup operates.

What you might work on:

  • Build features for our desktop Electron app using a hybrid native-web architecture
  • Scale our backend service to send many millions of messages a day
  • Maintain an elastic distributed infrastructure built on top of AWS
  • Build large scale data processing pipelines for indexing content
  • Continuously find opportunities to improve performance, and increase reliability & quality

Current stack: NodeJS, React, Mongo, ElasticSearch, Redis, Electron, AWS.

What are you looking for in a team member?

Your specialization is less important than your ability to learn fast and adapt to shifting technologies. We’re especially fond of people who:

  • Focus on project goals, not just writing code.
  • Iterate until customers love what you’ve built, and pay for it.
  • Have a hacker mindset and master the fine art of balancing time, features, and quality of code. You know when to unit test and when to “just ship it”.
  • Strive to grow personally and professionally, beyond just expanding technical abilities.
  • Love to experiment with new technology and share knowledge with the team.
  • Represent the team and product at conferences.

If you are a member of an under-represented group in technology, we strongly encourage you to apply.

What’s it like to work at Mixmax?

We’re a driven, passionate, responsible group who values personal and professional growth equally. We take care of ourselves, our families, our customers and one another. We believe in sustainable and diverse approaches to work and life, because optimizing for the long-term is the best path to success. As a team, we built multi-million dollar products with this balance in mind.

As a founding team member, you’ll wear multiple hats, embrace ambiguity, and take charge leading complex projects. You’ll have the support of an experienced team who’ve built multi-million dollar products and services. This is exceptionally challenging work, but will be the most meaningful and rewarding of your career.

Our office is in San Francisco near Caltrain. We offer competitive compensation and benefits. You’ll work with a great team (meet us on Instagram) on a product people love!
