About Backbar

The internship

We’re looking for a summer intern to meaningfully contribute to our software platform by building critical features that will be used by tens of thousands of users. We need a smart, self-motivated intern who has experience with and is very proficient in JavaScript. It’s a plus if you’re interested in wine, beer, or liquor; or have experience in the hospitality industry.

With this internship, you’ll get a chance to see what it’s like to work at a small startup and get exposure to all aspects of the business as well as various technologies and development tools. We iterate quickly and you'll actually get to see the results of your work in a production environment.

What you’ll do:

Our tech stack

What you’ll need

One last thing

This is a small team environment where you'll be expected to make significant contributions to our team without a large number of other engineers. Especially since most work will be remote due to COVID-19, you'll need to be a highly motivated self-starter and a great independent problem solver. Due to the nature of our business, candidates must be at least 21 years old. This is a paid, full-time summer internship ($4000 per month).

How to apply

If all of this excites you, please visit the job posting on our website and follow the instructions in the posting at https://www.getbackbar.com/careers/software-engineer-summer-internship.

**Due to Covid-19, the internship will initially be a remote position. We may return to an office space in Chicago later this summer and the intern must be located in the Chicago area.
