    Experience life as a full-time software developer with a paid summer internship at Palo Alto Software.

    We started in the Bay Area but long ago relocated to downtown Eugene. Our modern, open office space is located on the 4th and 5th floors of the Broadway Commerce Building, right upstairs from Sizzle Pie and the Barn Light. Come have an awesome experience with us this summer!

    Help us serve the world’s small businesses
    Our flagship product is LivePlan, a web application that helps entrepreneurs and small-business owners turn their ideas into practical business plans. Our customers use LivePlan to work out their top-level business strategy, prepare realistic financial forecasts, create business plans to communicate their vision to potential investors, and monitor their actual results to stay on track and meet their goals. Beyond LivePlan, we have several other interesting projects in the works as well.

    Work with cool technologies
    Get real-world experience with React, ES6, Java, Dropwizard, Postgres, Redis, AWS, and other contemporary technologies, and benefit from easy access to senior developers who can help you get up to speed. You’ll get hands-on experience using Docker containers for local development, managing code as part of a team in GitHub, and working in a continuous integration environment with Jenkins builds and a fully containerized development chain.

    Get to know scrum
    We use a fairly standard implementation of agile scrum to organize our work. In your time here, you can experience the whole process from the kickoff of new feature ideas through user story reviews, story point estimation sessions, two-week coding sprints, release candidate testing, bug fixing, and biweekly software deployments. You’ll also be part of the team’s monthly retrospective process to help identify opportunities for improve our speed, quality, and fun.

    See what this career is really like
    Computer science classes, for all their other merits, don’t give you a great sense of what it’s like to work as a software developer. With a full-time internship here, you will get good exposure to working on a team in a flexible office environment. Among the things we’ll ask of you:

    Contribute to new feature development

    • Pair with senior developers to learn and tackle harder problems together
    • Diagnose and fix real application bugs
    • Coordinate with our QA team on testing
    • Participate in estimation sessions to understand user goals and use cases, craft effective solutions, and point work requirements
    • Share feedback and ideas in team retrospectives to help us continually improve and experiment with our processes, tools, workflow, etc.

    What we’re looking for
    We value curiosity, intelligence, and drive. We’re looking for self-starters who are happy to tackle unfamiliar technologies and complex problems. You’ll get support, training, and mentorship from our senior staff, but we also want you to be willing and able to fight through problems on your own and learn on the job. Top-notch creative problem-solving skills are important. We’re also looking for people with great interpersonal skills, a good sense of humor, and an easy ability to collaborate with the rest of the team.

    Apply now
    Our internships run roughly from the end of spring term to the start of fall. They are full time (40 hours/week) and pay $15/hour. Space is limited, so
