First Jobs After College

Jr. DevOps Engineer (Flow Traders)

If trading Dogecoin has you excited about financial markets, consider a less cryptic (and less meme-reliant) career opportunity like the Jr. DevOps Engineer role at Flow Traders.

They’re looking for new grads (0-3 years out of school) with a BA in computer science, engineering, or similar.

You must have an “entrepreneurial mindset” as well as the ability to “hit the ground running.” This means highlighting your experience with Unix/Linux and Windows operating systems, Python and Bash, Kafka, Kubernetes, and Hadoop.

Jr. Engineer (Eventbrite)

It’s shaping up to be an epic summer for in-person events, which means that event tech companies are staffing up once again!

To be a Jr. Engineer at Eventbrite, you should plan on bringing at least 1 year of configuring and customizing Salesforce applications, mainstream programming language familiarity (Python, C++, Java, PHP, Ruby, or C#), comfort using SQL databases, and experience with a web framework like Django, Rails, Symphony, or ASP.net.

Internship of the Week

Intern for The Strategist (Vox)

The Strategist provides the best recs when it comes to gadgets and style. As an intern, you’ll contribute to their product research and reviews across fashion, beauty, homewares, tech, and more. Plus you’ll build your portfolio by writing daily posts.

Increasing representation across the tech industry is one of several goals that Uncubed shares with our Q2 partner, the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES).
