We're passionate about best practices and strive to follow standards laid out before us. The team is encouraged to get involved in the tech community by participating in open source projects, speaking at local meetups, and presenting at national and international conferences.

Who You Are:

You’re an innovator; you share our common interest in improving and scaling our existing architecture and systems. Your excellent communication skills are key when collaborating closely with other engineers to determine the best way to build products that meet their needs. We are quality driven and you must be too. We expect that you’ll get involved and stay infed with the latest trends in technology and experiment with how to apply those to help consumers make more educated and healthier decisions.

How You'll Contribute:

  • Start the day collaborating with your XFN team during daily standups to discuss the current sprint and remove any roadblocks
  • Write Java, Kotlin, JavaScript or Python code (using TDD) to add functionality to our platform
  • Gather data sets from complex product data and work with multiple data stores, including MySQL, PostgreSQL, DynamoDB and Elasticsearch
  • Use tools and scripts (e.g. SQL, Jupyter, etc) to analyze data and uncover trends and data points to make data driven decisions.
  • Build dashboards to surface metrics using our business intelligence stack (Looker, FiveTran, and BigQuery)
  • Hang out with one of our friendly office dogs (for Chicago postings) OR enjoy a free team lunch every other Wednesday!
  • Pair with and mentor other engineers to provide highly-valuable and innovative products to our customers
  • Attend a Lunch-and-Learn or Engineering Learning Session to hear about a new technology or learn from the team on that tech meetup or conference you recently attended

At the end of this internship you will have:

  • Gained experience working in a unique startup company environment with an emphasis on collaboration
  • Develop experience working on an end to end product solution
  • Increase software development skills, learning from a team of top engineers

Remote Work

This is primarily a remote role with weekly check-ins at the Chicago office. It’s imperative that you’re comfortable working in a remote environment the majority of the week, frequently communicating through Slack and checking in daily through Google Meet.
