Engineering Apprentice

Washington, DC
At Social Tables, we envision a world where face-to-face events achieve great things!

Our Apprenticeship program is geared towards taking new developers without on the job work experience and giving them the tools, guidance and environment necessary to reach their full potential. The Apprenticeship program will be a 12 week (~40 hour / week) paid contract position here at ST HQ in Washington, with the potential for a full time offer to join our Engineering team.  We are looking for hard working folks who love to learn and are hungry to improve their abilities. You will be paired with a team of fantastic Engineers working on a specific product or objective, and get an opportunity to hone your skills in a collaborative setting. Social Tables is committed to fostering a sense of community, supporting each other and growing together.
