Web Software Engineer Intern (Summer 2021)

Our voice technology is cool, but it’s mostly invisible. That’s why we take great care in surrounding our voice applications with elegant and intuitive web-based applications to make them tangible and usable. Vail’s web development team develops user applications that enable our clients to achieve optimal benefits from our software. Creating intuitively usable web applications is a multi-disciplinary process that requires instinct, creativity, empathy and an eye for detail. We assemble collaborative teams made up of industry experts and neophytes applying principles of application design, graphic art and even cognitive psychology to ensure that we approach problems from every angle. We’d like to add a Web Software Engineer to our team, and we’d like to know if you think you fit the bill. You will if you:

  • Thrive in a collaborative environment
  • Are able to pick up new concepts quickly
  • Can keep an open mind to new ideas
  • Have excellent interpersonal communication skills
  • Don’t mind using those skills to share your best ideas
  • Have an ability to work independently in a fast-paced environment
  • Aren’t afraid of ambiguity and can problem solve with little direction
  • Have a positive, can-do attitude

What you can expect to be doing:

As part of the team, you’ll be expected to coordinate with internal product teams to design and develop intuitive applications using state-of-the-art technologies. Your work will be the main thing that our Fortune 500 clients and consumer users see when they interact with Vail’s technologies. You’ll work in small teams out of our office in the Chicago Loop, developing applications using Ruby on Rails, JavaScript Frameworks, APIs and maybe some other technologies that your expertise or curiosity helps bring to the table. We encourage you to consistently experiment with new technologies in order to tackle a complex problem from multiple angles. You’ll design, code, debate, learn, and share; you’ll work hard, but you’ll have fun every day.

To be considered for this position, you must:

  • Currently be pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science/Engineering or a related field
  • Have a strong understanding of Object-Oriented software development techniques
  • Have prior experience with Ruby, Java, .NET or other object-oriented languages
  • Have a true desire to experiment with new technologies
  • Have an ability to solve complex problems in a short amount of time

Ideally, you will also be able to demonstrate:

  • Web development experience using MVC frameworks
  • Experience with Agile development practices
  • Experience with TDD or BDD
  • Familiarity with UNIX/Linux/OSX
  • Experience with git
