Give a 💩 and you might get hired as a Software Engineer

Well, that's one less candidate GutCheck is going to consider (via Giphy)

First Jobs After College

Software Engineer (GutCheck)

It’s a good thing you trusted your gut about those long nights of programming paying off because GutCheck’s software engineering team wants to hear from you.

They’re hungry for candidates who have experience with Java, and knowing Python, R, and Go as well will go a long way in the application process. You should also demonstrate any experience you have with AWS, containers, Spring Boot microservices, and MongoDB and Postgres.

But even more important than your technical DNA? You’ll need to “give a s****,” according to this job description, so be ready to work hard and collaborate here if you want people to stomach you.

Project Coordinator (Updater)

If you dream about building new features on top of your favorite apps and platforms – and if working alongside engineering teams, product teams, and clients is what moves you – then it’s time to address this Project Coordinator role at Updater.

You should know how to use Jira, Confluence, and G Suite / Google Workspace, and you should be interested in a client-facing role that requires vision, communication, empathy, and discovery.

Bonus points go to those with prior professional experience as a Project Coordinator (include any relevant internships) as well as those with PMP or PMI certification.
