Accepting Applications For Summer 2016 Tilt Engineering Interns!

The Tilt Engineering Internship program kicks-off this summer and we are recruiting our very first class of all-star engineering interns.

For those looking for a challenging summer internship, this might be the place for you. We’ve got positions available in our San Francisco, Austin, Blacksburg, and Toronto offices. You’ll get the chance to:

  • Join a small team at a rapidly growing startup, with multiple technologies in use from iOS and Android, to Javascript and HTML/CSS, and a Perl based API.
  • Work alongside our full time engineers build the features we ship to customers daily.
  • Spend a full week in our SF HQ (aka the ‘Tiltquarters’) for our quarterly engineering week! No sprints, just work on what you want to build, attend tech talks and engineering team events for the week.
  • Meet regularly with the Tilt founders James and Khaled.
  • Show off your work each week in our globally broadcasted Friday demos.
  • Be a part of this new and fully formed intern program, designed from the ground up with the goal to give interns real world experience, with help and guidance along the way.

The right internship can help launch you into a stellar career in engineering — and hiring the right interns can help us think through new ways of doing things. Before joining Tilt as the Director of Engineering a few months ago, I was Director of Engineering at Rackspace—where I started as an engineering intern. Over the course of 10 years, I went from being an intern at (which was acquired by Rackspace in 2007) to leading in a number of roles at Rackspace. It’s been an exciting ride—and I can’t wait for others to experience the same at Tilt.

This program is also especially important to us because the majority of our users are college students. We’re the fastest growing app on college campuses, growing 40 percent month over month. Engineering interns who are (or were recently) college students will have a clear understanding of who is using our product and what kind of features they are looking for.

Since joining Tilt, I’ve been continuously amazed by the great energy and positive atmosphere revolving around our core values. Each team member is high performer who is always willing to share technical knowledge and know-how to help fellow team members grow and improve.

We already have some amazing interns ready for this summer! Here’s what they have to say:

“I decided to join Tilt for the summer after I realized how small the iOS development team is. I’m excited that I’ll be able to make meaningful contributions that will important for the final product. I’d eventually like to run a startup of my own full time—what better place to learn and gain experience than at a fast growing startup like Tilt? Plus, this previous summer I visited one of my mentors, Michael Rihani, head of customer happiness at Tilt, and I saw how great the culture and work atmosphere is, and I wanted to be a part of it. I’m most excited about seeing the features I work on in the app go live and contributing to the success of the platform!” – Jordan White

“The thing that excites me the most about Tilt is how approachable everyone is. I’ve talked to three or four engineers and the Co-founder and CTO, Khaled, and I never once felt intimidated or out of place in any of my conversations. Can’t way to intern next summer and I’m sure I’ll learn a lot!” – Vigensh Prasad
