Software Development Intern

At Bitcasa, the Software Development Intern will be involved in all aspects of the development lifecycle. He/she will take ownership of a project (or significant component of a larger project) and be responsible for design, development and testing of the software while under the guidance of a senior engineer.

We have opportunities in multiple technologies for the right person – some possible project areas and technologies are:
  • Product development – web, mac or windows! Help build a new feature on one of our key products. Perhaps a new sharing feature, or improving how we present photos, or some new idea of your own.
  • Data engineering and analytics – take a stream of data, perform basic ETL on it, jam it into a persistent store, then find/build software that can run ad-hoc queries and user defined dashboards against it.
  • Network optimization – want to dive into the low levels of our network protocol and help optimize it? We’ll be looking to build out our testing and simulation environment to hyper optimize our network usage.
  • Storage engineering – want to get hands on storing PBs worth of data?
Our development team is small and everyone works in multiple areas. Technologies you may see include Python, C++, Java, Objective-C, Cocoa, Pyramid, Angular.js.

The ideal candidate would:
  • Be currently in a 4 year engineering/CS degree program
  • Have hands on development experience (non-professional is OK)
  • Want to live the disruptive start-up life – rapid releases, quick decisions, lots of autonomy
  • Have decent Foosball, Chess or Galaga skills (or willingness to learn)
