As an avid supporter of empowering women, Meetup is offering unique internship opportunities at our growing startup in New York City to female students who are in strong technology programs. Selected students will be offered a paid Summer internship along with a grant at the conclusion of the Summer to help pay for their education. If you're a strong engineer who enjoys being a trailblazer, read below!
You'll get to work on a product that's already helped millions of people find and build local community worldwide and be a part of a smart, dedicated engineering team. Plus, you'll gain valuable experience working at a successful, high-traffic web company.
As an intern at Meetup, you could be working on:
New features for Meetup's millions of active users
Beefing up our monitoring, deployment and testing infrastructure
Making our recommendation algorithms better
Internal development tools
Native mobile platform applications
We use a variety of tools and tech at Meetup: Java, Python, Scala, JQuery, MYSQL, HBase. Experience with some of those is ideal, but not required. What you *do* need to bring is a passion for technology and experience developing for the web. Side projects or viewable code on github or elsewhere a huge plus.
Eligibility: must be a woman able to legally work and remain in the US after graduation without sponsorship; must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.3 when the internship commences and must be a matriculated student in an accredited institution, graduating in December 2013, 2014 or 2015.
This grant will be offered to a maximum of three students each year. Each selected student will be offered a paid internship at Meetup in the Summer following acceptance. Upon completion of the internship, students will receive a $5,000 grant to help pay for their schooling.
Every member of the Meetup Team is expected to: be an Innovator; be a Collaborator; be a Champion for their ideas; be an Expert; have High Standards; be dedicated to the power of self-organized groups and our mission of A Meetup Everywhere About Most Everything ("MEME"); and most importantly, Get Stuff Done That Makes a Difference!
