Summer 2020 Engineering Internship
Contrast offers a Silicon Valley like-experience from the 4th floor of the historic Brown's Wharf in Fells Point. Interns will feel at home working side by side with a highly collaborative group of engineering professionals. Lunch is provided daily, as are snacks and drinks. The summer is filled with additional social programming experiences as well. You will get the chance to experience the fast pace of startup life. Each month of the program, an intern will be paired with a member of the engineering team as their mentor. Over the course of the internship, each intern will have (3) mentors guiding the entire experience.
Our internship program has been highly successful over our 5+ year history with members of each class receiving the opportunity to move onto the team in a full-time capacity upon graduation. This upcoming summer we will have 5 spots for our engineering internship program.
We use our internship program to jumpstart various product initiatives and innovations. One to two members of the core engineering team partner with the internship team to collaborate on the development of a new product offering. The product is worked on to an initial MVP (minimum viable product) and then transitions to either an existing team or a new team of developers that will take the MVP to market.
Each day is an exercise in learning agile development. Interns are brought into our SCRUM methodology, participating in all of our agile ceremonies. The team works together to go through customer needs and design at the beginning of the intern sessions. The work is then broken down into a series of 2-weeks sprints. The team participates in sprint planning, daily stand-ups, sprint close-out, retrospectives and twice weekly backlog grooming.

One last final note. Our internship runs from the first week of June through mid-August. Any student available in May may start the program earlier and is encouraged. Due to the shortness of the program, we will not be able to accommodate any extended vacations.
