Why Box needs you

As a Software Engineering Intern, you will be embedded as a full-time member of one of our engineering teams, working on a summer project that impacts our product roadmap. Paired with your manager and a mentor, you will build and ship code to be released to the public. This is your time to shine and be proud of your project - after all, you are the one building it!

What you’ll do: 

  • Build and complete a coding project: Drive your own development project—ask questions, design solutions, own and present the results. With your project you can make a true impact, whether it's external to our customers or internal to Boxers.

  • Be paired with a Software Engineer mentor: We'll pair you with a formal mentor on your team, but you can find a mentor anywhere in the company.

  • Attend team meetings. We treat you like a full-time engineer. You'll be immersed on your team and part of the daily stand-ups and other agile practices, getting an opportunity to really see how decisions get made.

  • Participate in intern events and programming. Through workshops and information sessions, we provide opportunities to meet other interns, grow your professional development skills, and expand your Box knowledge.

  • Write and review quality, testable, maintainable, and well-documented code.

  • Represent Box Poland internally and externally.

Who you are:

  • Either a 3rd or 4th year Computer Science/IT-related undergraduate student OR someone who has pursued a bootcamp program looking to begin your career in Software Engineering!

  • Currently based in Warsaw or ready to move for the internship period (July - September 2023).

  • Proactively assess, communicate, and complete project milestones with manager and team members in a time sensitive manner.

  • You are passionate about solving complex problems using data-driven solutions.

  • Must speak English proficiently.

  • Preferred Skills:

    • Knowledge of areas of the tech stack. If selected to be an intern for the summer, we will match you up with a team based on your interests and skillsets. We have teams ranging all over the tech stack and you can choose to explore front-end, back-end, or full stack opportunities, regardless of your prior experience.

    • Eagerness to learn additional coding languages. We like to use JavaScript, Java, PHP, Python, and Scala, and some other languages too.

    • Experience in a fast-paced, highly collaborative environment.

    • Experience working with distributed teams in different time zones. We’re a global company and our engineering teams span all the way from Poland to the US!

Percentage of Time Spent:

  • 60% coding / pair programming (specific to intern project work)

  • 25% internal meetings (stand ups, weekly architecture & planning meetings, AMA’s, 1:1’s)

  • 15% intern community events (virtual or in-person workshops & events)

Tools and methodologies we use

  • Excited to learn new tools and methodologies such as:

    • Agile management - Scrum

    • Issue tracking tools - Jira/Atlassian

    • Knowledge repository - GitHub Enterprise/Confluence/StackOverflow

    • Version control system - GIT

    • Code reviews - GitHub Enterprise 

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the internship is filled. The internship will be 12-weeks long, working full-time hours over the course of summer 2023 (July - September). If eligible, there is potential to convert full-time immediately following the end of your internship. We highly encourage all interns to follow our hybrid work model — balancing work from home, as well as collaborating in-person from our Warsaw, Poland office.
