Always be kind: a simple daily affirmation and one that feels more like a personal mission statement than a corporate motto -- but Pivotal isn’t just any corporation. Underpinning our world-class capabilities in cloud-native software delivery and agile development methodologies is one common thread: empathy. Not only do we want to transform the way the world builds software, we also want to make sure that sustainable pace, kindness, and diversity are at the core of every enterprise.
Known for taking an iterative approach, our 2000+ employees are empowered every day to help shape the way we build software. Pivotal is committed to open source, adiverse culture, and fostering safe spaces for all of our individual employees.
You’ve excelled in your computer science curriculum, and think that writing code 40 hours a week sounds like fun, not punishment.
You judge your success by the success of your team; you are interested in learning about distributed systems; and you are excited to work with open source software.
You are Junior or above,as this is a challenging internship where you will be pair programming with experienced engineers on real problems.
Agile concepts are at the core of our process. We have a whole host of Pivotal Practices around Test Driven Development, pair programming, team retrospectives, technical retrospectives and continuous integration. We are excited to teach these to you and innovate with you on their implementation.
We stick to a strict 8 hour a day schedule (with flexible start and end times). Although on-call rotations are part of most teams incidents are exceedingly rare.
A majority of our time is spent pairing in ourDenver officebut enabling remote teamwork is becoming increasingly important. We useSlackto stay connected and Screenhero or Tmux for pairing. We are working hard to make sure that our distributed teams function as smoothly as our distributed systems.
You'll rarely be alone when developing; from pairing all day to 1 on 1 time with your manager, there is always a Pivot there to lend a helping hand. Mentorship from senior engineering leadership is built right into our process - you’ll always be empowered.
Making an investment in each Pivot’s professional development improves the organization as a whole. We encourage you to go to conferences or purchase those pricey O'Reilly books - and we’ll give you a budget each year to do it.
As cliche as it may sound, every dayis completely differentfrom the next. We have ageneral frameworkfor what our day looks like and the majority of it will be spent with your pair:
9:00 AM - Office-wide stand-up to build office cohesion and start the day off together.
9:10 AM - Team standup - discuss any blockers, choose pairs, maybe even tell a joke.
9:30-12:30 PM - Start pairing, tackle an open GitHub issue and open a pull-request.
12:30-1:30 PM - Lunch! Eat on the balcony, run an errand, or join a book club.
1:31-6:00 PM - Get back with your pair and start an acceptance test for a big feature.
While that schedule does look busy, don’t worry - we take ample breaks throughout the day. Take a walk by the river, read a book on the balcony, play a game of ping pong, or chat with co-workers at the snack bar. Sustainable pace is held in high regard. We know there is a life outside of work, we want you to be able to spend time with family and friends. We understand that attending ballet recitals is as important as building great software.
Desired Skills/ Experience:
Ability to dive into a polyglot codebase and contribute while learning
Experience and/or interest in Test Driven Development (TDD) and agile methodologies
