We’re hiring! I’m part of the Services Infrastructure team here at Adobe, and we’re looking for some bright and eager individuals to help us build some really cool things! This position is based out of the Adobe office in Seattle and for our team :D  Here’s the description…

Job Title:
Computer Scientist Summer Intern

Position Summary:
The Adobe Services Infrastructure Team is looking for exceptional people to work on systems software and tools in a creative, fun, and fast-paced environment. Join us and help build the core components of Adobe’s SaaS platform, the foundation for online products like photoshop.com and acrobat.com.

As a member of the team, you will work alongside the rest of the engineering staff. We’re a flexible team, and we will give you projects addressing a real-world need that will be put into service, while challenging your skills and providing you with practical work experience. We will work with you to set you up for success, starting small and building from there. Adobe has an end-of-summer Intern projects “expo” in a science-fair format where you present your work to Adobe staff (including hiring managers!). Plus, there will be a few fun things like an afternoon trip to the movies.

The following are examples of possible projects: write a tool that auto-generates release notes from check-in comments and bug database records, build an application for managing our wall of monitors reporting statistics on our various services, create a small AIR application that streams real-time statistics from our services to internal users’ desktops (like a stock ticker), or expand the functionality of our emergency phone dialer service.

This job requires a 3rd or 4th-year in a BS Computer Science or equivalent degree, work development experience, excellent verbal and written communication skills, some knowledge of or exposure to test automation frameworks, and preferably some experience developing Java applications and Flex/ActionScript/JavaScript client applications.

• Working towards BS or MS in Computer Science, or related technical discipline.
• Extensive experience with C/C++ and/or Java.
• Preferred experience building and maintaining software systems and/or services.
• A solid foundation and understanding in computer science with strong competencies in algorithms, data structures, and software design.

E-mail me your resume and any other relevant materials you’d like to include at charlesb [at] adobe [dot] com.

For anyone that’s interested, I started off as an intern (with this team, in fact), and it’s a great way to gain some fantastic experience, work on cool projects with some great people, and just be part of an awesome company! I hope to hear from you!

    Hi Bhaskar, thank you for pointing out…I didn’t include any requirements for this position. I’ve updated the article to add a small requirements section. As for the duration, we usually take on interns for 3-6 months during the summer, although we are flexible. Unfortunately, since it is only an internship position and based in Seattle WA, we’ll only be taking applications from within North America. You should know that we do have an office in Noida where we have some very exciting projects! I definitely encourage you to apply!

    This is a bit far in advance, but I was wondering if you will be looking for interns to start in January 2012? Thank you!

    • Charles Bihis says:

      Yes, that is a bit far in advance for us to know for sure. But, most likely, we will be looking for interns to join us every summer, including next year. Keep an eye out for another posting just like this sometime next spring!
