    • Basic Education & Literacy

    Web Intern at Public Interest GRFX

    Filed under: Internship

    If interested in this opportunity, please email your resume and cover letter to Marites Velasquez at marites@publicinterestnetwork.org.

    Public Interest GRFX is the in-house communications team for the Public Interest Network, which includes
    nonprofits like Environment America and U.S. PIRG.

    To build the people power it takes to overcome powerful special interests and fix the urgent problems we’re facing
    as a society, from global warming to the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms, we need to reach the public. And
    to do that, we need to tell our story in a way that connects with people—intellectually, emotionally, politically—and
    motivates them to join the fight for a better world.

    The Web Project Intern will work side by side with our talented web team to help figure out where the public is at
    on an issue and develop a website with the design, tools, and features that will grab your audience’s attention and
    incite them to act. You will assist with coordinating digital campaigns, manage major web development projects,
    and help build our online following.

    This is not a coffee-grabbing, photocopy-making internship. Instead you’ll:

    • Assist with data-driven audience research to help inform web design choices.
    • Learn how to run “lean startup” model tests and quickly roll out ideas that succeed.
    • Experiment with new tactics for engagement and conversion.
    • Help manage relationships between developers and clients.
    • Learn project management skills useful for a future career.
    • And much more …

    If you’re thinking you might want to make a career out of using your communication and web skills to help solve
    problems like global warming or the flood of corporate money in our democracy—interning with Public Interest
    GRFX is one of the best ways to get started. Not only will you get the training and experience you need, but we’ll
    consider our most talented and committed interns for positions on our team once they graduate.

    Required Qualifications:

    • You want to make the world a better place. You have experience volunteering or working for an issue or cause
    • you feel passionate about.
    • You’re creative. You’re able to anticipate or define a problem, brainstorm solutions, propose or decide on a
    • course of action, and follow through. You can think on your feet and respond to unexpected challenges with
    • confidence.
    • You’re smart. You can get your head around complex issues and manage multiple projects.
    • You’re accountable. You respect goals and deadlines.
    • You have an aptitude and desire to learn new things. You don’t need to know how to do high-end coding, but
    • you should be excited to gain some new tech chops so we can give you the skills you'll need to be successful.

    Job Description:
    We're looking for a promising software intern with a passion for mastering new technology.

    • Working with QA, you'll write unit tests, UI tests and integration tests to prove your code works.

    • Pairing on production code with another Backstopper
    • Writing automated RSpec tests to prove that your feature works the way you expected
    • Taking part in our regular retrospectives
    • Getting crushed in our Ping Pong tournaments (we have Foosball tournaments too, but those are less tournament and more massacre)

    Some examples of current projects Backstoppers are working on include: writing an accounting engine flexible enough to handle the needs of hundreds of clients, implementing a distributed cache to improve application performance, waging a never-ending war on technical debt, and perfecting a mobile application that will allow our clients to access their data when and where they want.

    Technologies in use:

    • Languages: Java, JavaScript, Scala, Clojure, Ruby, Bash, Go, Perl
    • Third-party products: Oracle, ElasticSearch, Jenkins, Amazon AWS
    • Frameworks: Stripes, Guice, RSpec, Hibernate, jQuery, Fitnesse, Rails
    • Systems automation: Puppet, Hiera, mcollective, Cloudstack

    Experience and Skills
    Qualifications & Experience:

    You'll be able to demonstrate you can code in a practical interview, and you are comfortable with the idea of getting your hands dirty in every aspect of an end-to-end software creation process. If any of the following describe you, you'll probably be a great fit:

    • You're a software professional, looking for a place you can perfect your craft amongst friendly and supportive co-workers.
    • You’re starting your career as a developer and you’ll benefit from patient mentors.
    • Writing beautiful code is a passion of yours and you want to show the world.
    • There are no obstacles while you're developing software -- only opportunities to learn.
    • Major in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or equivalent.

    Benefits:

    • Comprehensive pay
    • Intelligentsia coffee and espresso
    • Game room, team events and quarterly company parties
    • Weekly games and snacks
    • Casual work environment, jeans encouraged (when not visiting clients)
    • Work with smart, cool and dedicated folks
    • The chance to work for a growing service provider in the alternative financial industry

    If interested in this opportunity, please email or call Max Kirschenbaum (847.440.6146 or max@ratebarn.com).

     

    About Rate Barn: There is a disconnect between insurance consumers and insurance companies.  Most consumers have little to no true understanding of their coverage details, cost validity, and what their insurer’s services are at the time of a loss when they need those services most.  On the other hand, insurance companies endure massive marketing campaigns in an effort to reach clients in many different ways.  We communicate with both parties in an entirely non-partial manner to facilitate the appropriate policy for consumers, and offer the insurance companies a precise and efficient way to directly reach clients.

    Rate Barn is looking for a candidate that can absorb and analyze the data we will be retrieving about our customers. Our goal is to understand where and in what ways Rate Barn is working, and where and in what ways it is not. We need someone who has the ability to use statistical information about our data to help us make enlightened business decisions.

     

    In addition, our goal is to use our collected demographic data to provide other companies with information about our customer base. We will provide information to our partners about the type of user using our product. We will provide our partners with information such as what coverage a specific type of user would choose and why. We will be dealing with a great deal of demographic information, and we need a team that can help us use it effectively.
