KnowledgeHound (knowledgehound.com) | Boston Engineering Intern

Deploy real-world code to production week one. Develop code and your skills. Spend some time in the sun, working in Boston and Cambridge.

WHAT WE DO: We build KnowledgeHound, a data search and exploration tool, on top of some fantastic technologies. We've got a real product, real revenue from Fortune 500 clients and real investment. We're looking to add some more interns & developers to that mix.

COME WORK FOR US IF:

   - You believe that work doesn't need to be all consuming to be productive and fulfilling,

   - You are committed to getting better at your craft every single day (tell me how you do it!),

   - You want to get your hands dirty in a real code base (sorry, powerpoint doesn't count as work here),

   - You thrive on flexibility not micromanagement and

   - You've built something real (class or side projects or previous internships are great examples)
WHAT'S THE SUMMER GOING TO BE LIKE? We've got a backlog of new features/bugs, and we're overhauling one of our major systems. We want you to join hands with the rest of our tech team and deliver production code. Just like everyone else, you'll pull a new bug/feature from the queue, work with anyone else necessary (e.g. our world-class designer, Joe) and put together a pull request. I'll be a personal resource and I'm dedicated to learning and to teaching. If you hit a snag or don't know the best way to do something, we'll work on it together.

We are a collaborative team. We count on everyone to think critically, bring ideas for improvements and champion those ideas. In other words, "We do pay you to think." Be a part of designing our product and our business.

WHERE IS THIS PLACE? I'm currently our entire Boston office (there are another half a dozen of us at the home office in Chicago and one on the West coast). On that account, we don't have a permanent office here yet. I'm planning to spend the summer working from co-working spaces, coffee shops, home, and places in the sun. I like to alternate between working surrounded by great people and taking a full day somewhere quiet to knock out some "real work" (writing code). If that sounds better than the cube farm, email me (john@knowledgehound.com).
