Summer 2014 Tech Internship Program

Ben Yelsey

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of GameChanger’s Summer 2014 Tech Internship Program!

We’re looking for motivated individuals who code for fun more than school credit and want to cut their teeth on some real-world problems.

Running our platform for scoring, stat-keeping, and sharing of amateur sports requires wrangling huge amounts of data (our user base creates more sports data in a day than MLB, the NBA, the NFL, and the NHL do all year combined), scaling infrastructure all the way to the clouds, and a keen sense of what coaches and sports fans want, need, and love. Interns will gain experience with the technologies and process of building out an application that can handle our exponential growth, all in New York City’s vibrant startup scene.

Interns will spend roughly 8 weeks working directly with our software developers. Every intern will have a specific mentor on the team making sure that their projects are organized, educational, fun, and shippable. Interns will get a competitive stipend and we’ll help them find housing.

We are:

  • The scoring, sharing, and stats platform for Amateur Sports
  • A startup in NYC
  • Very friendly polyglottal programmers

You are:

  • A currently enrolled student in a college or university, in their Junior year (class of 2015).
  • A prospective major in Computer Science or a related field, and/or with real-world experience developing applications
  • A bona fide hacker

We’ve put together a programming challenge for potential interns. Applicants should show us what they’ve got by coding up a game engine that can provide insights for the sport of their choice. More detail here.

If you think you’re what we’re looking for, or if you know someone who is, check out our programming challenge and apply now!
