Job Title: Software Engineer Intern
Slalom's 2020 Internship program is a 10-week paid engineering focused project team of student interns learning and practicing Slalom's software engineering capability model under the direction of experienced technologists and leaders. Slalom will select an internal project designed to provide lift across the organization and leverage modern technologies to realize that vision. Selected interns will utilize bleeding edge engineering practices and leverage new technologies in an agile delivery model mirrored from Slalom's full-time consultants. Interns will also be leveraging cloud platforms and technologies to create new analytics and dashboards based on application datasets. This structure creates not only a valuable real-world experience for students to up their expertise and capability, but also mutually benefits Slalom as an organization.
