Digitile Software Engineering Internship Winter/Spring 2020

Innovation Center 5115 N 27th Ave BLDG 66 Phoenix, AZ  85017

Join us for a unique 16-20 week paid internship that offers personal and professional development right in your backyard in the GCU Innovation Center (building 66) with Digitile. Digitile is tackling a problem that is ubiquitous to most businesses, file search. Digitile has developed exciting technology that allows users to search for any file, from anywhere through a browser Chrome Extension. This program will enable you to work on complex computer science solutions to develop scalable, distributed software systems, and also collaborate on a multitude of projects that have universal appeal across industries and businesses.

As a Software Engineering Intern, you will be work on scaling and building out our core product offering from design, test, and deploy in a fast-paced environment. Digitile is looking for three eager and motivated candidates that will go through this program as a cohort group. Depending on your background and experience, you will focus on a few areas and touch on all of the following areas:

  • Product & Systems Development
  • Frontend Development
  • Software Testing 
  • Software Security
  • DevOps
  • Database Management

We want analytical thinkers that can use data to make decisions. As a growing startup, we have multiple problems that need to be solved with limited guard rails, so candidates will consistently be asked to think outside of the box to land on a solution with the guidance and mentorship of our Senior Developers.

For this reason, Digitile is looking for people that are eager and hungry to learn and contribute. Digitile is a problem-solving company at heart, and we have set out to solve one of the workforces’ most considerable problems. As a part of the interview process, we will look to understand your problem-solving abilities and the process you go through. The hiring process will be extremely competitive, with an Amazon and Google-like interview process designed to prepare you for the future.

Each intern will walk away from this program, having learned all aspects of Software engineering required to support a Software as a Service business with thousands of users. Most importantly, each intern will be a vital contributor to the innovation and development of Digitile’s aggressive technology roadmap. The goal after the program is to assess each intern and evaluate for a potential full-time hire.
