Software Engineer - Intern

Grand Canyon University 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’s B2B, data-driven AI document organization platform solves a ubiquitous pain point in the workplace that is even more relevant now with the shift to working from home, as employees struggle to find information across Google Suite, MSFT Office, Slack, Zoom, and more. The Employee Workflow is ripe for disruption, and there is a massive market gap between Cloud Storage & Digital Asset Management (DAM) solutions that has left users stuck. This program will enable you to work on building a revolutionary light-weight DAM solution that personalizes the way teams work while providing you the skills to develop scalable, distributed software solutions for enterprise clients.

As a Software Engineering Intern, you will assist through all phases of the software development lifecycle in scaling and building out our core product offering in a fast-paced environment. Digitile is looking for one eager, motivated candidate that will go through this program with an open mind. All of the following areas will be touched on but, depending on your background and experience, you will focus on a few of them:

● 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 workforce’s 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.

You 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, you will be a vital contributor to the innovation and development of Digitile’s aggressive technology roadmap. The goal after the program is to make an assessment of the entire experience and evaluate for a potential full-time hire.
