Software Developer Intern - Web/Backend


As an intern you will be assigned a project to work on over the course of the 12 weeks. You will be responsible to oversee the project from the design phase through its release to customers. A mentor will be assigned to assist you as you ramp up on our codebase and processes. You will join team meetings, and operate as a member of the platform team in our 2-week sprints during the internship.

Our platform team focuses on maintaining an available service for our existing customers while keeping up with the needs of our product roadmap across our product line. This team owns the technology that powers everything on the Mutual Dating and Mutual Dates mobile applications, the admin client used by the support and marketing teams, the partners portal used by other businesses to place their products on Mutual Dates.

As a developer on our team, you will have the opportunity to work with a tight-knit group of developers and be exposed to our platform team stack: AWS (RDS, ECS, SQS, Lambda), API (Node.js), Web (React.js), Database (MongoDB, MySQL), and Analytics (Sumologic, Cloudwatch).
