Data Engineer Intern - Summer 2020

We know that there are all kinds of data engineers, with varying levels of knowledge about different platforms and data sources. At InterWorks, we’re more interested in interns who are hard-working, smart and love what they do. We care more about overall data and programming skills rather than experience with a certain database platform. Whether you have worked primarily in SQL Server, Postgres or something else, we only ask that you have a strong understanding of building data pipelines and can apply your skills within our fast paced and agile approach.

While some companies may hide their data engineers away in some dungeon, data engineer interns at InterWorks are social, friendly creatures. That is why being able to communicate with clients day in and day out is especially valuable. Our data engineer interns must be able to work closely with users in order to understand their needs and help them as best as possible.

Data Engineer Interns can expect to work on diverse projects ranging from a few days to a month. Many of these projects include solving data acquisition, integration and management problems for some of the largest organizations in the world. Projects also include working with disparate data sources (Relational databases, flat files, Excel, HDFS/Big Data systems, high performance analytical databases, etc.) to unify client data, creating ETL processes based on client needs and managing client expectations.

InterWorks prides itself on having an exciting work environment, with a unique company culture. InterWorks employees are some of the most intelligent and friendly people you will ever meet, and they are the primary reason for the success of InterWorks. Joining the InterWorks team as a Data Engineer Intern means joining a family and our family is growing faster than ever.

What we are looking for:

Desired Skills:

  • Strong SQL skills
  • Programming ability (Python, Java, C#, PHP, etc.)
  • Strong ETL skills using GUI based tools or code based patterns
  • Understanding of data modeling principles
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Business acumen
  • Strong problem solving skills
  • Easily adaptable and flexible to changing situations
  • Passion for delivering compelling solutions that exceed client expectations

Highly Desired Skills:

  • Experience with software engineering practices
  • Experience with modern data engineering practices and frameworks
  • Experience with integration from API sources

This is a paid internship, however, students may pursue academic credit depending on their department.
