Job/Internship Description
Job Description

LinkUp is a Minneapolis-based job search engine with a singular vision of delivering perfect job market information to our clients and users. We do this through proprietary and sophisticated technology that allows us to index millions of jobs directly from company websites around the world every day. We're the global leader in delivering accurate, real-time, and predictive job market data and analytics. Every day we index millions of global job openings directly from employer websites and deliver that data to clients across industries and around the world to help them assess labor demand, understand trends, predict job growth and decline, and so much more.

We are seeking an individual who will be a key contributor to our data management team to support the ongoing growth of the company.

About the role
You'll work as part of a fun team, using your growing skillset to help us scour the internet to build the world's best index of job opportunities and job market data.

The web programming internship is a hybrid position that allows for remote work but will also require a minimum amount of time each week in our office in downtown Minneapolis. With that said, the health and safety of personnel is of utmost concern to LinkUp, so this could change as circumstances shift and new information arises. In any case, LinkUp is strictly requiring all employees and interns to be vaccinated against COVID-19 unless they have an exemption.

For remote work, you'll want to make sure the following are available to you:

  • A relatively distraction-free environment to work in
  • Reliable internet connection for working and participating in video meetings
  • A computer/laptop/equipment with which to access your personal cloud workspace

Also of note, we cannot facilitate candidates who are international/require a work visa/et cetera.

This is a paid internship ideal for non-traditional students who are working on or have completed a technical degree or coding bootcamp certificate. The pay is $20 per hour and about 20 hours per week. Since this is a part-time internship, the role does not meet the requirements to be benefits-eligible for health/dental benefits, vacation, holiday pay, or 401K plan participation.

This posting is for a 6-8 month internship position with possibility of full-time hire afterwards.

To be successful, you'll need the following

  • Working towards or recently acquiring a degree (or equivalent experience) in computer science or related field
  • Some experience programming in one or more modern programming languages (you'll learn PHP here if you don't already know it)
  • A baseline understanding of web technologies and protocols
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills
  • The ability to work both collaboratively and independently

Someone that would be a great fit

  • Gets excited about metrics and analytics
  • Loves to write code and manipulate data
  • Sees data in everything and wants to take things apart and tinker
  • Has a natural tendency to automate and streamline things
  • Has a habit of setting measurable goals and blowing past them
  • Mentions starburst in their cover letter
  • Knows the importance of clean, consistent, documented code
  • Can read and understand code written by other people
  • Loves being a critical part of a team doing meaningful work

A little bit about us
We take pride in a great company culture that is based on our core principles: work hard, have fun, think big, solve problems, and do good. To be blunt (and brag a bit), LinkUp is a great company filled with outstanding people that are incredibly talented, extremely dedicated, and really fun to work with. Along with some of our office perks such as stand-up desks, volunteer opportunities, and free snacks, we offer competitive pay, health / dental benefits, paid time off, 401k, and employee stock options.
