65 points by adbge on Aug 19, 2011 | hide | past | web | favorite | 39 comments
Hey, HN'ers,

I noticed that there didn't seem to be many internship opportunities in the August edition of the "Who's Hiring?" thread, so I decided to take it upon myself to right this clear injustice.

Please include:

* Company

* Location

* Are you willing to relocate potential interns?

* What does your company do?

* What technologies are involved?

* Length of internship

* Paid/Unpaid

We are still running mostly stealth but on a top level are developing a new kind of music entertainment experience oriented an consumer electronics device you dock your iPhone into which then connects you to our online platform.

Our internships have both salary and equity components. We're located in Santa Clara for now, likely to move up farther north in the next few months. Willing to talk about relocation. The length of the internship is flexible but typically it's 3-6 months.

2) Front-end guy. We have an awesome designer, and want to get his ideas into our code base as quickly as possible. Requires the obvious HTML/CSS/Javascript. HAML/SASS (with some familiarity with Rails -- not too much) is greatly appreciated, but certainly not a requisite.

We're quite a small startup so you're not just a coding monkey and can expect to be involved in architecture decisions as well.

AppStores, in San Francisco, right by Union Square, need a marketing and community management intern, but you can make the roll as developery as you want. A developer evangelist would be hot.

Is any startup in the US taking interns from Canada? Good schools up north (UofT, W'loo, etc.) :)

Yes. We're inPulse (YCW11) and we hire Canadians. Hell, we're 3/4 Canadian at the moment. We're in Mountain View, CA.

We're looking for embedded software devs, Android devs and web/ops people. If you want an internship in the bay area, we pay market rate plus hook you up with living expense subsidies, free flights, food, etc. Send me an email: eric AT getinpulse.com

As a Canadian (Tdot).. I know it can be relatively difficult to get a job down here in SF. I was lucky enough to go to a US school which gets me OPT for a year. Then I can issue myself a TN-1 or H1B.

For Canadians.. try to get a TN-1!

I'm a Canadian who has worked in the US a number of times as an intern. J-1 visas were easy to get for me through my University career office and employer working together.

Ah neat! Do you know if this works for undergrads? And if the employer is a startup, does that add to the complexity?

P.S. This isn't for me, but for an undergrad I mentor.

I know plenty of bay-area startups hire undergraduate interns from the University of Waterloo (where I am).

I don't see it being a problem, though it's a little costly. You should contact a company like Cultural Vistas (http://www.culturalvistas.org/) who can get you the J-1 visa.
