Work & Co (work.co) defines and launches the world's most successful digital products and services. With offices in the United States, Brazil and Europe, we've become the go-to partner for IKEA, Lyft, Google, Apple, Epic Games, Mailchimp, Aesop and many other globally respected companies. As Fast Company noted, our engineering and design teams are “routinely entrusted with creating digital product for companies which rarely approach outside firms.” No time sheets, just fully-dedicated teams. Forrester Research calls our approach “a model to follow.”

Developers at Work & Co work in small, highly collaborative teams to create breakthrough digital products and experiences that people use everyday. They work closely with designers, product managers, strategists, and quality assurance analysts to prototype and create a range of high quality, robust and scalable digital tools and services - leveraging industry best practices and emerging technologies. Join us as we help our clients redefine their industries.

As a Developer Intern you will be paired with a member of our Technology team and work on real projects, writing production-quality code for our diverse roster of clients. In addition to your day to day work, you will attend workshops to learn more about the digital product space and the contributions of other disciplines at Work & Co. This is a great opportunity to work on engagements alongside company partners as well as the top designers and engineers in the industry. Along the way, you will learn more about the software development lifecycle — from prototyping to production — as you partner with innovative clients from early stage startups to Silicon Valley giants such as Apple and Google.

  • Receive regular mentorship from your assigned project lead, and day-to-day support from your team members
  • Participate in your team’s code review process to regularly give and receive feedback in pursuit of greater quality and consistency

We Are Looking For

  • Strong organizational skills and an eye for the small (but important) details
  • Hands-on experience developing and deploying websites or mobile applications
  • Familiarity implementing high-quality UI based off a design file using tools like Sketch, Figma, Photoshop, etc.
  • Good interpersonal skills, including the ability to communicate ideas, challenges and potential opportunities day-to-day
  • Experience committing code to a version control system i.e. Git
  • If you’re interested in web development:
    • Proficient in developing and debugging responsive layouts with clean, semantic HTML
    • Experience writing clean and reusable CSS

    • A foundational understanding of core JavaScript and/or JavaScript UI libraries (i.e. React, Angular)
    • Nice to have: experience with CSS-in-JS or CSS transpilers (i.e. Sass)
  • If you’re more of a mobile developer:
    • Exposure to Swift, Kotlin, Objective-C, Java, or React Native
    • Familiarity with at least one software design pattern (MVC, MVP, MVVM, etc.)
    • Nice to have: A basic understanding of a dependency management / build system such as Swift Package Manager, Cocoapods, Maven, Gradle, etc.
  • Bonus: Personal projects or strong contributions to Open Source projects that show a passion for engineering and products

An Insider's view of Work & Co

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Every day, I get to work alongside insanely talented people I respect. Our office environments are designed to help us focus on our craft — whether that be coding or digital design or strategy. We also push against burnout and discourage long hours. No time sheets. Everyone should get to be their best selves both in and out of the office.

Rafael

Design Director

What projects are you most excited about?

Creating products that launch is our priority. Having world-class design and engineering talent ensures that these experiences are beautiful and functional. Utility is also important. We always want to add value to people’s lives.

Muriel

Group Director, Product

How does the company support your career growth?

We believe in mentors, not managers. And we see mentorship as a right. At Work & Co, every employee gets a dedicated mentor from day one. Our flatter structure also means we learn from one another, informally, on an ongoing basis.

Caitlin

Group Director, Talent

What is your vision for the company?

Work & Co's mission has been clear since day one. We exist to create —and launch— the digital products and experiences millions of people love using every day. We exist to raise the bar. Our approach is to be the best at a few things versus average at a dozen.

Marcelo

Partner, Technology

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We’re all encouraged to contribute and collectively push boundaries. The best ideas can come from anywhere. All disciplines —designers, engineers, strategists, PMs— sit together in project teams. Our flat structure ensures there's not a rift between senior and junior talent in the company. The result is a workplace that enables continuous learning.
