Cloud Engineering Internship (South Bend)

Cloud Engineering Internship (South Bend) - Position Description

Trek10 builds and manages massively scalable cloud architectures using cutting edge technologies. Headquartered at Innovation Park across the street from Notre Dame, we have a local footprint but operate with a global reach. Started only five years ago, today we have customers on four continents and from coast to coast in United States and a global brand for deep expertise. We are a finalist for a 2018 award for Indiana Tech Company Scale-Up of the Year. Trek10 is an Advanced Tier AWS Consulting Partner with AWS Partner Competencies in DevOps and IOT. We have a focus on designing and building IOT and Serverless systems, DevOps automation, and providing 24/7 support. We are pioneering the future of cloud computing and having a lot of fun while we do it.

The Position

We don't mess around with internships at Trek10. We'll throw you into the fire right away, expect you to learn on the fly, and build real-world systems that we'll be using at Trek10 for years to come.

Learning

It's an important part of any internship, but even moreso at Trek10, as the work we do is very, very technically deep. We are global experts in our field and we expect our interns to dive deep. From day one you'll start learning about our internal systems and processes and our CloudOps support business. You'll also be expected to learn a lot about some of the following:

  • AWS
  • Serverless and AWS Lambda
  • Event-driven architectures
  • IOT
  • node.js and/or Python
  • Database technologies like DynamoDB (NoSQL) and Postgres
  • Continuous Integration and automated deployment
  • DevOps
  • Infrastructure as Code (CloudFormation)

Development

We typically have interns take one 1-3 fairly large internal projects over the course of the summer. These will be internal tools that help us do our jobs better and supporting our clients via our 24/7 CloudOps service. You'll be expected to commit code to Git and learn Continuous Integration systems to debug and deploy your code. The work you do may be internal and proprietary, but often our interns end up open sourcing new projects to our GitHub and writing posts for our very popular tech blog.

Documentation

Documentation is critical, and you'll learn how to write good wiki articles, READMEs, and other technical documentation so that the work you do can be immortal! Challenge yourself. Come join us! Be great; help write the future; solve problems; develop your skills; and have fun!

We need an individual who loves to solve puzzles, who sees beyond the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd levels of why something broke (or worked), and who loves to mistake-proof (aka human-proof) Systems. We need systems level thinkers. We need someone who is a strong independent worker, but also enjoys being part of a team. We need execution, attention to detail, and excellence. We need an individual who is an excellent communicator, especially written, who enjoys interacting with clients (good, smart, capable clients). And we want someone eager to learn about AWS, Serverless, and the future of DevOps / CloudOps. We need someone who can take a vision and run with it. We’d love someone who creates their own vision and goes for it.
