The Dream Internship: Work at Automattic this Summer on the VIP Team
Update: Please submit your links by EOD on April 23, 2012. Note that your submission will remain private, but we are receiving them.
Our company Automattic — which runs WordPress.com, Akismet, VaultPress, and many other services — is looking for a few stellar summer student interns, specifically to work with us on the VIP team. The internship runs from June 1st through August 31st of 2012, but we are flexible on the dates.
As a paid intern, you’ll be working on a range of projects depending on your skills & passions — everything from writing case studies to doing development work on plugins that improve WordPress functionality for large media companies.
Where will you be working you may ask ? Anywhere ! We are a distributed company and are happy if you work from wherever you are — including your parent’s summer beach house — as long as you have a good broadband connection.
Interested ? Write up a post on your WordPress.com blog and leave a comment on this post with a link to it telling us what you’d work on — for example, a proposed partnership we should do, a UI improvement to one of our services, a killer plugin, an infographic showing off our latest stats, etc.
Looking forward to hearing from all of you.
