Summer 2017

Software Development Intern Program for High School Students

at Oasis Digital, St. Louis, MO

Application Deadline: March 15, 2017.

It’s almost time for Oasis Digital’s Summer 2017 intern program. You might want to look back to our previous year programs, or our inspiration, the Fog Creek program. Interns at Oasis Digital work on serious, complex projects, though the work is sometimes exploratory in nature (rather than part of our real development work for customers). Interns write software, test software, write about software, etc. The purpose of the work is to educate and enlighten the interns, and create something useful to Oasis Digital and its customers.

Who?

Unlike some programs, ours is for high school students, or recent high school graduates about to enter college. To apply, you should have a strong interest and experience (at school or at home) writing software.

We plan to hire two or more student interns.

When?

The first two weeks or so, interns will have training at our office Monday – Friday. After this, interns will meet at the Oasis Digital office two or three times each week. Our office is in Des Peres, MO.

Interns must live in the St. Louis metro area and have transportation available.

At these office sessions, we’ll all work together, and interns will learn from professional Oasis Digital developers. Outside of that, interns can work alone, or meet to work together, for a total of around 30 hours per week.

Does It Pay?

Yes, these are paid internships. Each intern will have the opportunity to earn about $ 2,200 for a full summer of work.

In addition, we have a (company-paid) lunch together, once or twice a week.

How Do I Apply?


Apply via our job application page, not by email or phone. We expect intern applicants to have a one-page resumé listing interests, software training, and personal projects, not professional work. If you do not have one, we suggest you get input from a school counselor, parent, or other professional.
