Come tune your development skills and help change the way small businesses are run!
You will not feel like an intern. You will be a full member of a scrum team. You will pick the next story that you work on from the same repo that other engineers do. You will write and deploy code to production on your first day. You will have an impact.
InsightSquared is a well-funded Cambridge startup. We're building a powerful and elegant business analytics SaaS app that helps small businesses make smarter decisions and take down their larger competitors. We pull sales, marketing, financial, customer service & other data from SaaS app APIs like Salesforce, QuickBooks, and Google Analytics and present over 400 beautiful visualizations and analytics.
We build on a modern platform (Python/Django). We ship code to production not just daily, but a dozen+ times per day. We test quickly, learn fast, iterate fast, and focus on code that matters. Your code *will* see the light of day, and fast.
IS2 won the Stevie Award for Business Intelligence this year. Please check out our culture, process, and intern dev blog posts to get a feeling for the IS2 experience. But don't trust us when we say we have the best culture in town. InsightSquared was separately named by the Boston Globe and Boston Business Journal as a top 25 small company Best Places to Work in Mass.
