Software Development Intern
Summer. Remote. Full or Part Time.
About Easy Access
Easy Access is an early stage educational technology start-up, working to help underserved students access higher education. We are a social enterprise looking to become a Khan Academy for the college application process—a single platform for students, counselors, and colleges that will increase equity in the transition from high school to higher education.
About the Role
We are looking for a software development intern to help us create a college search mobile app that students will use to simplify their college search. We already have a great start on the app development; you can check out prototypes here. Our technology stack for our mobile development includes: Firebase for authentication, Firestore for database, Go for the API Server, React Native for the front end, and Heroku and Expo for hosting. We are also working on a web application for counselors that uses Firebase and React.
Details & Expectations
We are offering12-week, part-time (20 hours/week) summer internships. We are flexible on the exact dates, but it will run approximately from early-September to late-November.
This is an early-stage start-up. The organization consists of two co-founders and you (potentially another intern or two). You will have the freedom and opportunity to work directly with the co-founders, collaborating on what ends up being an impactful product by the end of the summer!
Full and part-time internships are available. Please be open with your available time commitment and your preference for working on different aspects of mobile development (e.g. front-end, back-end). If you are passionate about this project, we can find a role that fits you.
The co-founders are based in Raleigh and Durham, NC, but the role will be remote for the summer. We mainly communicate over Gmail and Slack, and will have regular video calls to check in, brainstorm, and answer questions.
Salary & Benefits
We are working off a grant, so we unfortunately can’t provide benefits or health insurance.
Paid and unpaid internships are available depending on experience. Total stipend will depend on experience and funding availability.
