InfluxData has a strong commitment to open source, to learning with humility, and to getting stuff done. This is a great opportunity to experience day-to-day life in an exciting high tech company. We integrate our interns as members of our SCRUM teams where they will participate in our weekly engineering planning meetings and contribute using the same engineering planning, review, and testing processes as our employees.  This provides an opportunity for interns to learn how commercial software is written.  We value our interns for their injection of new ideas, new perspectives, the opportunity to meet students and prospective future employees. We are looking for interns to join any one of our teams, outlined below

  • Storage: data storage and retrieval
  • Compute: distributed workload management and scheduling
  • Query: flux query language development and application
  • API: user-facing and open-sourced developer tooling
  • Deployments: systems to support continuous delivery and integration of new software features for our SaaS product
  • Product UI: tools to query time-series database and display the results on dashboards etc.
  • Ecommerce: customer onboarding, billing, account management services

We will provide structure, definition of goals, process, relationships, community, and a breadth of mentoring experiences to give students the best chance to succeed at their projects.  Our mentors range from recent graduates of boot camps, to CS PhDs with several years of teaching experience.  

What you'll be doing: 

  • Contribute to our open-source database projects
  • Pair with teammates to deliver well structured production code with automated tests
  • Regularly participate in code reviews and design discussions

What you bring to the table

  • In progress (Junior or Senior) or recently completed Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science, related technical field, or participation in a relevant coding bootcamp
  • Experience programming in a modern programming language such as Javascript, Java, Python, Go, C++, or C#. 
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Technical curiosity and a strong desire to learn and improve

Bonus points:

  • Contributions to any open source project
  • Prior experience and/or Interest in working with Go
  • Experience with Elixir or React.
  • Working knowledge of Git (and GitHub)
  • Comfortable navigating Unix/Linux systems via terminal

It’s not expected that you’ll have deep expertise in every dimension above, but you should be interested in learning any of the areas that are less familiar. 

*We are unable to sponsor visas at this time (new or transfers) in any location. However, we can sometimes sponsor an internship (not FT employment) through university OPT/CPT programs.*

We currently support employees in these US States (AZ, CA, CO, CT, FL, GA, ID, IL, IN, MA, MD, MN, NC, NJ, NY, OK, OH, OR, TX, UT, VA, WA.)  If you are in a state we don't yet support, we are happy to look into registering in the US state.
