Job Description:

The Gathering Place is a non-profit public charter school in San Antonio. One of the many things that makes the school unique is it designs, develops, and deploys its own software for internal systems and operations. There are currently eight internally built fully operational web applications in use across the school and a seventh in development. Not only are the web applications in use at The Gathering Place, they are also being tested and developed to expand to other schools.
Each web app is a single-page application developed with React and Material UI on the frontend along with node and firebase on the backend. The Gathering Place is making 2 internships available to aspiring software developers interested in web application design and development. Each internship is for 5 - 10 hours per week and is fully remote. Interns will work directly with the lead developer on the project and will have support with key skills and design patterns they are implementing. This is an unpaid internship, although for the duration of the internship, interns will receive a Macbook Air to use at home and school if they are located in San Antonio; otherwise the intern will be expected to provide their own laptop.
