Education Analytics (EA) is seeking energetic summer interns for our web development team. EA is a non-profit organization based in Madison, WI, that uses data analysis to inform education policy decisions. We partner with school districts, regional offices of education, non-profits, and policymakers to identify ways to improve education systems.

Many of EA’s partner organizations are large public school districts that serve diverse, often under-represented, student populations. Because of this, EA values a breadth of educational experiences in employees, and is encouraging applications from students who reflect these populations. We encourage students from all ethnic and racial backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender identities, and those who are first-generation college students to apply for this position.

Interns will work closely with full-time development staff, aiding in the implementation of full stack web applications, including frontend/backend technologies as well as server architecture and API implementation. They will have the opportunity to pursue a personal project and present on that project at the end of the internship. Interns will acquire important web development skills as well knowledge of real-world production environments and their application in everyday education policy decisions.

Qualifications:

  • Currently pursuing some level of post-secondary education in Computer Science or a related field
  • Some exposure to, or experience with a programming language preferred
  • Interest in data visualizations

Job Responsibilities:

  • Work within a team to complete various development projects and meet deadlines
