Ability to learn quickly and the eagerness to develop new skills
Knowledge of at least one programming language
Good command of written and spoken English
Basic knowledge of how web applications work
Basic knowledge of algorithms and data structures
Familiarity with version control systems
Familiarity with relational databases
HOW IS SPRING INTERNSHIP SHAPED?
During the internships, you will have a chance to join your new, experienced colleagues in developing real-life projects. You’ll get the chance to experience full cycle product-development while contributing your bit. From day one at Upside, you’ll be working on tangible challenges to solve with your team.
You will be given regular Code Reviews and performance feedback helping you to become a better software developer, technology consultant and teammate. We’ll also help you to develop your communication skills as well as show you how to become better in direct work with Clients.
The internship is designed to last 4 months, until the end of Summer Semester at the Universities/the start of vacation season (30th June 2022). Up until today, all of the interns who joined Upside prior, decided to stay in the company for longer - and that’s what we are also offering you. After the Internship is done you will be more than welcome to stay in Upside!
ABOUT THE RECRUITMENT PROCESS
While applying for the Internship we will ask you for your details along with a few questions around your prior experience (that of course doesn’t have to be commercial). We’ll also ask you about your motivation and expectation towards the internships to make sure we can meet them. If you have your CV ready - that’s great, you can attach it. If not, we will simply ask you for relevant details in the form.
2. Programming tasks
After reviewing your application, you will receive simple programming tasks to solve. What you can expect are some basic algorithmic tasks and database questions. You have two weeks to complete the tasks but the sooner you do them, the better. For scheduling purposes - solving the tasks we prepared shouldn’t take you more than one hour.
3. Invitation for a short video conference
This is the first time you’ll get a chance to meet us in person! And this is usually quite an exciting moment. Our Recruiter, Ewa will chat with you about your motivation and expectations. She will also answer any questions you might have about the company and recruitment process.
The conversation, as well as the entire recruitment process, will be held in English and will last around 15-20 minutes)
4. Invitation for a video chat with Technical Team
During your second face-to-face meeting with Upside, you’ll have an opportunity to meet our Tech Team. Throughout the 60-min meeting you will be asked some simple questions and have an ability to discuss your general approach to solving technology tasks. And once again - this is a chance for you to ask our Team your own questions.
5. Invitation for a longer video or in-person chat with Technical Team
This time you’ll have a chance to choose if you’d prefer to meet once again online or if you’d be willing to meet face-to-face in the office. During the meeting that will last around 1-1,5-hours we’ll encourage you in more in depth discussions about technology.
6. Invitation for a final call with our co-CEOs
During the last interview you’ll have a chance to meet one of our co-CEOs, Kasia or Rafal. They will connect with you to simply get to know you better. Also, you’ll get a chance to ask them any questions you might still have about Upside.
No later than 2 days after your final interview you will receive a final decision, hopefully with an invitation to join Upside.
