WordPress.com VIP provides hosting and support for high-profile, high-traffic WordPress sites, including Time.com, FiveThirtyEight.com, qz.com, search.fb.com, MicrosoftStudios.com, NYPost.com, and more.
We are looking for two engineering interns to join us for the summer, to work on development for the WordPress.com VIP platform. This paid internship runs 12 weeks, and we are flexible on the specific dates.
Where will you be working you may ask? Anywhere! We are a distributed company and are happy if you work from wherever you are — as long as you have a good internet connection.
Interested? Complete your application by filling in the form below. In the space provided, introduce yourself and why you’d like to be an intern with our team. Be clear about what you’ve done and what you’re interested in working on. Feel free to use as much space as you need in the form and be sure to give us more information by including links to your online profiles as appropriate.
We’re serious about increasing diversity in the tech industry. We encourage applications from women, people of color, people with disabilities, members of the LGBTQ community, and other communities traditionally underrepresented in this field.
If your application sounds interesting, we’ll schedule an interview (usually written / text chat, since we communicate a lot via text) as a next step. Good luck and thanks for your interest!
