About the internship:

Vigilant is growing -- fast. We’re looking for an undergraduate or graduate student eager to apply their technical skills in a business setting. The Software Development Intern will work closely with our team of 6 developers to test and write data source queries. As is the case in startups, some challenges of the position can’t be anticipated -- you’ll help solve problems we don’t yet know exist.

About you:

- Solid Python experience

- Entrepreneurial. You want to learn how a startup operates

- Skilled in Python and familiar with web frameworks.

- Scrappy. Your instinct is to solve problems themselves before asking others for help

- Interested in the public and open data landscape.

- Bonus points if you have experience with web frameworks like Django and React

You’ll learn about:

- Real life applications of Python

- How to test data source queries

- How to write data source queries

- Products and platforms used by startup companies

- The public data landscape

NOTE: This is a great opportunity for someone to learn and gain experience, but it is not a paid position.

Hours for this position are flexible, but we hope you'll be ready to commit at least 20 hours a week to working with us. Short of that, we don't think it will be worthwhile learning experience for you.
