About StudentSide

StudentSide is an edtech company working on an end-to-end platform to help high schoolers learn about their dream schools firsthand from college students who attend those schools. Our mission is to destress and demystify the college process so high schoolers can make the best quality college decision. Given how large of an investment a college degree is monetarily and in terms of one’s time, it is worth conducting the proper due diligence to ensure a school is the right fit.

Job Description

We’re looking for a software engineering intern to help us automate workflows and develop our product. It can be on a part-time or full-time basis, but we are looking for a student to commit at least 10-12 hours a week. Given this opportunity is unpaid (we’re broke college students as well), we want to make this a learning opportunity for you to work on what you think you would benefit from most. If your work is of high quality and you are a fit within our culture, we can explore having you work with us on a more regular basis during the school year.

  • Allow users to create accounts with our site, registering either as students or as college mentors.
  • Keep up-to-date with Agile softwares (e.g. Trello) for timely website development.
