The Zooniverse is excited to offer a paid, up to three month web developer internship. Ideally you will be able to travel to our office in Oxford (UK), however we will consider you if you want to work remotely or part-time. The internship will run over summer 2017, with the option for flexible start and end dates.

There will be opportunities to work on a variety of projects during the internship, according to our current needs as well as your own skills and interests. Some possible projects may include:

  • Adding new front-end features to our site
  • Working on new back-end API services
  • Building data visualization tools
  • Extracting services from our API
  • Operations work with Docker and AWS
  • A project you dream up and propose?

Are you an enthusiastic person who wants to learn? You should apply if you wish to be a web developer and you desire to gain experience with any (not all) of the following:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • React
  • Ruby
  • Rails
  • Python
  • Git
  • Bash
  • Docker
  • AWS

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at the Zooniverse. We do not discriminate and are committed to a diverse and inclusive work environment. We particularly welcome applications from those with a background that is under-represented in the technology sector. This internship would suit current students, recent graduates, those wishing for a career change or dreaming to return from a break. However you must have the right to work in the UK.

The salary is at Grade 07S.01 scale, pro-rata. All applications will be considered from June 1st until the position is filled.
