It’s that time of the year, again. We’re organizing the most unusual software development internships in Kraków. We’re looking for a couple of aspiring software developers who want to join us as Ruby/Android interns for a six month long journey.
We’re looking for people who are focused on helping their teammates shine, who take care of troubled colleagues, and finally who are passionate about becoming software developers. We care a lot about organizational culture so who you are and how you act in a team setup is crucial even if we expect some familiarity with coding.
We are exceptional on many accounts. We have no managers. None, whatsoever. We aim at being transparent in every aspect. We don’t need to ask permission. Ever. There actually is a long version of the story if you’re interested.
While we obviously look at technical skills we care more about your passion and learning skills than your current proficiency level. This means that we want to spend more time during internships to give you more chances to shine. After all, we hope everything will go well and we’d be able to convert you to a permanent Lunar folk.
We expect a basic programming knowledge from the candidates. This time we explicitly look for people who want to work with Ruby/Android.
You will team up with one or a couple of our experienced developer working on a project. You will get everyday support and mentoring from us. You will work on actual products but without pressure to deliver outcomes instantaneously. We aim to help you learn most.
Yes, we always reward the good work. There is a monthly salary of 3000zł net.
We’ll pick the people who we like most, first organize a quick remote coding session with them and later invite them for what we call Happy Hours. During Happy Hours you'll spend a few hours (around 4 in total) with different Lunar folks doing different things with you: coding, chatting, brainstorming, joking, etc.
We want to get a feeling what kind of person you are, how you act in a team, and why you care about becoming a software developer. It is your chance to show as much of yourself as possible. So if you give a damn, show it when answering our questions.
Get familiar with what Lunar is. Our blog is a good place to start, and the post about hiring may be specifically useful. Be open and personal. We seriously want to know more besides the fact that you want to learn to program and work in a cool company. Think of your superpowers. Everyone has them even if they don’t realize that. You do too. Tell us why Lunar would be a great place for you and why you would be a great addition to our team. It will work only if it’s a win-win. We won’t know whether it would be so unless you tell us about your aspirations and your perception of the company. Be honest and transparent. We simply like it. And remember, there are no wrong answers here.
We believe that working from the office is a great start, especially for interns. There are more opportunities to interact with experienced developers, brainstorm the solutions, learn some of the Lunars' stories, and have fun! Of course, it doesn't mean you will need to be at the office everyday. If needs be, working remotely from time to time is also fine.
