Start your spring semester by securing this internship
The “first job after college” section
Petal is a new credit card powered by machine learning that needs an entry-level Engineer to write server-side code. If you have prior internship experience coding and shipping production-ready software, along with expertise in Python (this is a nice-to-have, not a need-to-have), then check out this role.
If you’d prefer to shape the future of fitness with your Python expertise, a Junior Software Engineer at Equinox has been spotted. And since we’re on the subject of workouts, you should already know the importance of REST…ful APIs, that is, as well as AWS and caching tools like Redis, ElastiCache, or Memcached.

During the 12-week internship, which includes an intern hack week, you’ll be involved in projects that create new methods of detecting compromise and improve incident response tools.
Be sure to highlight the fact you have a genuine interest in security tooling and scripting, and call out any coursework open source tool development, network traffic analysis, malware analysis, or security architecture.

The 🌮 Report:
It’s a proven fact that each week, someone here at Uncubed eats a delicious taco. We love talking about it so much, we decided to share it in this newsletter. First up:
Taco Mahal is a tiny storefront in NYC’s West Village neighborhood that dishes out big taste when it comes to its tacos. The first thing you’ll notice about these tacos is that roti and naan are used in place of tortillas. It’s a welcome addition, as the chewy dough is the pillow that absorbs all of those delicious sauces and toppings we’re going to talk about next.
If you’re ordering them here, choose the chicken tikka masala. The creamy tomato sauce is spiced with fenugreek leaves, and you might taste fennel or celery in your taco because of that. Embrace this spice as if you were Baby Yoda holding a macaroon while The Mandalorian blasts your way to safe passage. They also make a decent version with saag paneer, and the lamb curry roti taco is another stand out pick.
While Taco Mahal won’t ruin traditional tacos for you, it will make you appreciate the beauty of holding some fluffy warm naan in your hand. Visit them, preferably after a job interview and not before because something green might get caught in your teeth and that’s not a good look.
Want to make a chicken tikka masala taco at home. Here’s a recipe we found courtesy of Mission Foods. Just remember to replace the tortillas with naan.
Step 1: Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces. Marinate with 1 tablespoon of masala paste and the yogurt for at least 30 minutes (or up to 4 hours) in the refrigerator.
Step 2: Once marinating is complete, melt butter in a large, deep skillet over medium high heat and add the remaining masala paste. Allow to fry for 1 minute, then add onion, garlic and ginger.
Step 3: Add the chicken/yogurt mixture and sauté until the chicken is nearly cooked.
Step 4: Lastly, add the tomato puree and cream/coconut milk and allow to simmer for 15 minutes or until sauce thickens and chicken is thoroughly cooked. Season with salt, as desired.
Step 5: Warm tortillas for 10-15 seconds on each side in an ungreased pan. On each tortilla, lay a small bed of rice and top with chicken tikka masala mixture. Sprinkle with cilantro for garnish, if desired.
