At Drop, our goal is to get interns integrated with the team and working as professional, full-time software engineers as quickly as possible. After completing the short ramp-up program that all our engineering hires go through, you’ll join an existing work group (called a “pod”) and begin working on the same tasks and projects that drive the entire team. This is a great opportunity to work on real-world web development projects, gain experience with modern web technologies, and have a real impact on a growing business.
Our engineering team emphasizes efficiency and balance, and we employ a few nontraditional ideas to reinforce this philosophy.
We release during the day, not at night.
Everyone releases code and learns how the system works.
We don't believe in 18-hour workdays.
We do biannual reviews to talk about where you’re going and how.
“My internship gave me firsthand experience working as a full-stack engineer at a fast-paced startup. Instead of another internship doing arbitrary projects all summer, I was given the opportunity to design and build features that directly affected users and the growth of the company. In the end, I made lifelong friends while working on a product I genuinely cared about.”
"I had an incredibly educational and fun experience as an intern at Drop. Everyone on my team was extremely welcoming and I immediately felt at home. More experienced members of the team were amazing resources and never hesitated to give me advice and constructive feedback. I will always treasure my experiences from that summer.”
“Interning at Drop was not only a lot of fun but also an unparalleled learning experience. I was treated like a full-time engineer, which allowed me contribute substantially to the product across the stack and work on critical projects. Everyone was passionate about their work, and I loved the excitement and fulfillment that came with being part of a fast-moving startup.”
“Our team consists of engineers and managers who have scaled projects over 10M daily users and solved difficult problems along the way. Interns can benefit from their experience while having a big impact on a fairly small team. Our interns have shipped important features to millions of users. A few even opted to take a gap year and work full time at Drop to get more professional experience.”
