Description

We are currently seeking creative and self-motivated high school juniors and seniors interested in the world of web development for our exciting internship opportunity. Our intern will learn and grow their knowledge of web development, focusing on the Duda platform. Our goal is to provide a learning experience that translates into practical skills and real-world insights into the technology industry.

  • Assist in debugging and problem-solving related to web design and layout.
  • Update and maintain site content and graphics.
  • Learn and apply principles of SEO and user experience (UX) in web development.
  • Assist in the planning and deployment of website projects.
  • Collaborate effectively with our team to understand project vision and objectives.

Potential Career Experience Activities

1. Front-End Development

  • Interns work on the user interface and experience aspects of web development, using languages like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. They might be involved in designing responsive web pages, implementing visual elements, and ensuring user-friendly design principles.

2. Back-End Development

  • This role focuses on server-side development, dealing with databases, server logic, and application integration. Interns might learn to use languages and frameworks such as Python, Ruby, Java, PHP, .NET, Node.js, and work with databases like MySQL, MongoDB, or PostgreSQL.

3. Full-Stack Development

  • Some internships offer opportunities to work across both front-end and back-end development, providing a comprehensive understanding of how different layers of web development interact. Full-stack interns get to work on projects from conception to completion, gaining insights into every development stage.

4. Web Design

  • Although more focused on the visual and UX/UI aspects, some web development internships might include roles related to web design, where interns learn to create layouts, color schemes, and graphics that enhance user experience, using tools like Adobe Creative Suite, Sketch, or Figma.

5. Quality Assurance (QA)

  • Interns might be involved in testing to ensure that web applications function correctly across different browsers and devices. This involves identifying bugs, documenting issues, and understanding the lifecycle of a bug from discovery to resolution.

6. Project Management

  • Learning the fundamentals of project management, including agile methodologies, sprint planning, and collaboration tools like Jira or Trello. Interns might assist in managing timelines, documenting requirements, and facilitating communication between team members.

7. Content Management System (CMS) Development

  • Working with CMS platforms like WordPress, Drupal, or Joomla to create and manage digital content. Interns might learn to develop custom themes, plugins, or modules and understand the principles of content architecture.

8. API Development and Integration

  • Developing or integrating APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) to allow web applications to communicate with other applications or services. Interns learn about RESTful services, JSON, and how to securely exchange data between servers and clients.

9. Version Control/Git

  • Understanding the importance of version control in collaborative development environments. Interns learn to use Git for tracking changes in source code during software development, including branching, merging, and pull requests.

10. Web Security

  • Basics of web security practices, learning about common vulnerabilities (like SQL injection, cross-site scripting) and how to protect web applications from such threats.

Qualifications

  • High School sophomore, junior, or senior with an interest in web development, computer science, or related field.
  • Familiarity with Duda platform is a plus, but not required.
  • Basic understanding of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, or willingness to learn.

  • Learn about the workflow and daily operations of a tech company.
  • Enhance your problem-solving skills in a real-world context.
  • Improve communication and teamwork skills in a professional environment.

Application Process

  1. Applying for Internships - Internships are usually only specified for the city listed in the description, even for remote roles. Please do not apply for roles with city specifications if you are not in the metro area of that city.
  2. Screening - We screen your information to make sure you are a fit for the role. Applicants must be at least 14 years of age and be a sophomore, junior, or senior in high school in the United States that has NOT graduated high school. If you have applied for a role in a city that you do not live in, your application will be moved to our remote pool for further processing. If you are international or have graduated from high school, your application will be declined. Freshmen in high school MAY BE considered on a case-by-case basis. Please do not apply if you have graduated high school.
  3. Virtual Video Interview - Within 48 hours of receiving your application, you should get an email with a link to our interview system. This is an asynchronous interview that you can complete any time your schedule permits. However, please take the interview seriously and give yourself a quiet area to complete the process for the best possible video interview.
  4. Assessments - Within 24 hours of completing your interview, you will receive an email to complete your assessments. These assessments are based on the role you applied for and can take about an hour to complete. We use the assessment as a baseline to properly place you for internships that we have with our clients.
  5. Onboarding - Once all previous steps are completed, within 48 hours, you will receive a date for onboarding. This will start with a call with our CEO to introduce you to the company and get you set up in the system so that we can start assigning projects. In many cases, we may have projects ready for you to start within a week of onboarding.
