Internship 2020

iOS/Android App Development

Are you a student looking for a challenge? Do you like to code, are you keen on having an app developed by yourself?

We are organising and iOS/Android app development internship. Read on and apply if this is you.

Teamwork

We’ll organize two teams of two students each:

  • team iOS working in Swift
  • team Android working in Kotlin

You will get the app brief, technical requirements and design guidelines from us and will be guided by mentors from our team.

Tools you will use: Xcode, Android Studio, GitHub, Slack, Trello.

The App

We’re still deciding on this one but…

We partner with NGOs that resonate with us, and contribute by creating apps for them. This is only one of our ways to pay it forward and give back to our community and the causes we believe in. It’s only fair that unpaid internships should not be taken advantage of, so we use this time & effort to help them achieve their mission.

We are thinking of including cool features like real time data, push notifications, AR, machine learning.

Internship 2019: The UK Sepsis Trust App

Our interns from summer 2019 were Radu from Polytechnic University in Timisoara, Adam from Israel and Jacob from California, USA.

During this iOS/Android app development internship program, we developed a pro-bono native app for the British NGO UK Sepsis Trust. The app is a quick and easy to use tool to help early diagnosis, raising awareness for sepsis and finding local support.

Radu worked on the Android app in Kotlin while Adam and Jacob worked remotely on the iOS app in Swift. Together with the mentors from Cobalt Sign, they implemented the custom UI design, the desired functionalities and the Google Firebase backend so that we published the app in time for the International Sepsis Day in September.

Internship 2018: PLAI Festival Apps

We first developed the iPhone & Android app for PLAI Festival in 2013 as part of our pro-bono initiative. Since then, we updated it each year to include new design elements and to fit the event’s schedule requirements.

In 2018, during the internship program, our interns Ágota and Marius took on a big challenge: to completely redo the app in React Native. Using a custom fresh UI/UX design, a Google Firebase backend and help from the mentors, the app was ready in time for the festival in September.

What Our Interns Are Saying

A pretty valuable thing that we learned was working on GitHub in that project-based team structure where we were doing code reviews and things like that. Submitting code reviews, having them approved and asking credits - that’s something I know that in the future, in my job, I will probably have to do. So that was super helpful.

The ups: I think it was very good using Basecamp. A couple of downs using Basecamp: it was pretty hard with the Campfire feature. I think if we would have used Slack, it would have been easier. But I think Basecamp was very good for organizing everything including time zones and everything. I think it worked out very well.

AdamIntern - iOS Developer

I learned Kotlin - this was completely new for me, we haven’t had Android classes at the university so I started from the basics. What I learned was very useful and I’m already thinking about developing an Android app for my thesis.

RaduIntern - Android Developer

The main expectation was to try to get into an environment of actually not an internship but more like an actual work environment. Like, I’m working at a job, using Basecamp and talking to people at meetings.

AdamIntern - iOS Developer

I had the opportunity to see how it is to work in a team.
It was interesting, especially now that the app is published on the Play Store.

RaduIntern - Android Developer

I liked the idea of working with an NGO because it shows you kind of what it’s like to work with a client as well.
