Our Uplift Summer Internship is Underway!
An Uplift internship presents a unique opportunity for us, students, and our clients. Our interns work closely with our Senior Engineering team to start from a place of best practices. At Uplift we emphasize constant learning and all of our team members are passionate about growing talented software engineers. We have found that the best way for engineers to gain deeper understanding is through helping another learn, and this program provides an opportunity for Uplift and client engineers. Our learning partnership with the interns allows our clients the opportunity to hire well vetted and ready to contribute software engineers at a competitive market salary. The benefit to our Uplift team is the chance to help another software engineer get a great start to their career. We are so excited about the interns that we have with us this summer, and they are already off to a great start. Learn a bit about each of them below.
