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 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 more important than how proficient you are with coding right now.
We are exceptional on many accounts. We have no managers. None, whatsoever. Everything at the company is transparent. Every single thing. 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 (no matter the language). We do most work with Ruby, JS and Elixir. We do mobile development as well. Anything from that list is fine.
You will work in a small team on an internal product. You will get everyday support and mentoring from us. You will have plenty of time to learn, experiment, and try new things. Ultimately, we don’t aim to build the best product in the world. We aim to help you learn most.
Yes, we always reward the good work. There is a monthly salary of 2500zł net.
Up until November 20th we receive applications. We’ll pick the people who we like most and invite them for what we call Happy Hours. Happy Hours is a few hours spent with us at our office when different people will be doing different things with you: coding, chatting, brainstorming, joking, etc. After that we’d make up our minds and pick the interns. The internship will start between December and January, depending on interns availability.
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 JS 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.
