Overview

Freelancer Limited, the ASX-listed company that owns Freelancer.com and Escrow.com, is opening positions for paid 3 month Software Engineering Internships over the 2018/2019 University break. Ten-time Webby award-winning Freelancer.com is the world’s largest freelancing and crowd sourcing marketplace, which connects millions of employers to freelancers across the globe. Escrow.com is a global fintech industry leader in secure online payments, having handled over US$3.5 billion in transactions buying and selling boats, cars, airplanes, jewelry, fine art, and even trips to the planned Aurora space station in 2021!

We think it is pretty cool that our marketplace hosts a real life economy, where work is undertaken in every area you can think of. From design, writing, data entry and software development; through to sales, marketing, accounting and legal services – even NASA uses us!

We are looking for fullstack software engineers. Our team works with the latest tech, and pushes code 30-40 times a day in a high-performance cloud environment. We develop core, revenue-generating products, and so this represents an opportunity to learn from the best and potentially have a fundamental impact on our global business.

Not only will you help build features and software that scale, but your work will have direct impact on tens of millions of users worldwide. So if you have an interest in architecting web applications at scale, enjoy the challenge of writing optimised lightning fast SQL for massive data sets, and are passionate about designing high quality APIs, then we’d love to hear from you!

Requirements

  • Experience with a web development language, such as PHP, Python or Golang
  • Experience with Javascript, preferably Angular, TypeScript, ES6 or other common JS frameworks
  • Ideally, experience with relational databases and SQL, preferably MySQL
  • Ideally, experience with Linux
  • Background or interest in web engineering at scale
  • Ideally, a Github page with contributions to open source software
  • 2nd year+ Tertiary Degree in Computer Science / Engineering (or related);

Benefits

This won’t be a cog-in-the-machine internship; you will be joining a global company that values attitude and capability over experience, so if you are looking to make a difference and be rewarded for your efforts, this is the place for you.

We are striving to shape the future of work, so help us scale to 100+ million users, while enjoying all the perks of working in tech – fun atmosphere, smart people, awesome office, fully-stocked kitchens (yes, free food!), social events, hackathons, and more!
