Engineering Intern, Developer at Spektrix

You will be working for Spektrix as Engineering Intern, Developer at Spektrix

Spektrix is a rapidly growing collection of arts managers, marketing types and computer geeks whose mission is to make life easier for ticket-selling organisations. We’re doing this through our cloud-based ticketing, marketing, and fundraising software, which is changing the way that venues sell tickets and manage their customer relationships.

We provide a mission critical application to our clients and facilitate the sale of over 6m tickets a year. Offering the highest levels of availability, reliability, and usability is a key business aim and our unique approach has led to rapid growth and a superb reputation across our client-base.

We work with over 150 organisations around the UK, Spain and America, have ambitions for other markets within Europe. We have a team of 28 based in our office in Farringdon.

As an Engineering Intern, you will have a dedicated project to work on and you will be assigned a mentor to help you ramp up. You will also have regular tasks similar to our full-time engineers. You will participate in our agile development sprints and will experience our complete development life cycle, from planning to live site deployment. The internship is for a minimum of 8 weeks.

You will work alongside our small, focussed team of engineers and have responsibility for developing one or more new features for our web-based, multi-tenant, enterprise grade box office solution.

Above all you will be:
* Passionate about engineering novel and elegant solutions to complex problems.
* Fearless when it comes to trying new technologies and techniques.
* Obsessed with performance and reliability.
* Not tolerate ‘good enough’ when it comes to the tools you write and use.
* Be a speed freak – fast just isn’t fast enough when it comes to system performance.
* Excited by test driven development, automation and continuous integration.

You will also:
* Be studying for an honours degree in a relevant discipline (e.g. Engineering, Physics, Computer Science, Mathematics etc.).
* Demonstrate a systematic and analytical approach to problem solving.
* Have excellent technical communication skills.
* Have an understanding of web technologies and protocols (http, rest, soap, html, css, and javascript).
* Have an understanding of object oriented programming principles, techniques and patterns.

Other Requirements:
* You must be eligible to work in the UK.
