Software Engineer Intern, Summer 2020

| Chicago

About Enova:
Hard working people need access to fast, trust-worthy credit and Enova uses advanced technology and analytics to provide that to them. With a focus on non-prime customers and small businesses, we’ve served over 5 millions customers through our six businesses in the US and abroad. We’re born and raised in Chicago and we pride ourselves on hiring smart, driven people who like solving challenging business problems. Our philosophy is simple, “Life’s short. Work some place awesome.”

Many of us consider our people to be Enova’s best perk. We have 1,500+ employees and your teammates are as passionate about their work as you are. Your manager and team will encourage you to think outside the box and will celebrate your wins with you along the way. We’re big on career growth and make sure you have the tools you need to succeed. On top of that, we also offer competitive salaries, health care benefits, a 401k matching plan, summer hours, tuition reimbursement and a sabbatical program. Our Chicago headquarters even offers over 100 different kinds of snacks, a game room, onsite massages/barbers/nail technicians, and a variety of different social events.

What you’ll be doing:
As a Software Engineering Intern, you will be integrated into our core agile teams and work alongside Enova's engineers. Over a period of 10-12 weeks, you will partake in the full software development lifecycle and work on business initiatives that bring value to our consumers. 

Enova believes in education through total immersion. As one of our interns, you’ll begin your time with us learning the ropes in our intensive boot camp program. While working on high visibility projects, we will also provide you in depth training surrounding Ruby, Rails, GoLang, and other technologies and skills needed to become a successful full stack engineer. As a member of the Enova internship program, you will have the benefit of networking with other interns across the company through team outings, lunches, and events.

What you should have:

  • You are passionate about crafting exceptional code, using open source technologies, and learning
  • You have experience with any object oriented programming language- we welcome engineers from various technical backgrounds
  • You are able to communicate with non-technical team members about progress, challenges, or new ideas
  • You are pursuing your Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or related, and are a current Junior.

About Software Engineering:
The Software Engineering Team, one of the largest groups in the company, is responsible and accountable for meeting the demands of our current and future businesses. We help create the “Tech” in FinTech.

We are structured into small full-stack teams, each aligned to specific business lines or core services. Each team is responsible for defining and delivering solutions through smart interactive development. We code in Ruby and Go, and use Vue.js and other JS frameworks for front-end development. However, we welcome engineers from different technical backgrounds and have a training program to get you up to speed on our tech stack. Baseline is our self-paced training program, which provides a suite of exercises for all new engineering hires to work through during their first few weeks, ensuring they have the knowledge needed to be successful in their role.

Although we are divided into unique teams, our culture of collaboration promotes and encourages engagement across every team and department within the company - no team is a silo. This enables us to align our core values and create strong, best practices.

Our goal at Enova is to recruit, hire, develop and maintain a diverse workforce. It is our policy to provide equal employment opportunity for all persons and not discriminate in employment decisions by placing the most qualified person in each job, without regard to any other classification protected by federal, state, or local law.

An Insider's view of Enova

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Enova encourages employees to own their work-life balance journey by providing an environment that allows them to be successful. Leaders value the results you create, rather than the number of hours in front of your desk to get to those results. Bottom line, people respect that you have your own unique working style, which is yours to discover.

What are some social events your company does?

Enova’s social calendar has something for everyone. Events range from comedy shows to bowling for charity. We host & sponsors events, including the Chicago Women in Tech conference and weekly meetups. It’s easy to find people with similar interests; if there’s something missing from Enova’s social list, make it happen! People will definitely join.
