Job Description

Sporcle is looking for computer science and/or engineering interns

We are a small and growing team of designers, engineers, producers and students that bring mentally stimulating diversions to a wide audience at home, work and school - sometimes in class! Make an impact contributing to products that millions of people around the world see and use everyday.

We have a number of infrastructure and web development projects waiting to engage your brain, giving you real-world experience in a professional web and mobile application environment.  Working alongside our engineering staff, you’ll be part of projects such as:

  • Configuration of new servers for our development and production environments.
  • Creation and expansion of tools to monitor web and database performance.
  • Developing tools and features for web and mobile applications.

Qualifications:

  • Computer Science, Computer Engineering major or other engineering areas of study with appropriate experience
  • Comfortable and productive in a Linux (Ubuntu) command-line environment
  • Experience with one or more of the following languages: PHP, Python, Ruby, Perl, Bourne/Bash shell
  • Strong problem solving skills
  • Self-motivated with the ability to work both collaboratively and independently
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Able to commute to Sporcle's office in Seattle, WA. Out of state candidates would be responsible for their own relocation. 

Being part of a small company means that there's no help desk, no formal review committees or rigid structure. We work as a team, but everyone is expected to be an independent problem solver with the ability to research and solve their own issues. We have plans and goals, but also embrace change and a little bit of chaos.

Already a Sporcle user? We'd love to know more about your experiences with the site or our mobile apps. Include your Sporcle handle and tell us about your favorite games.
