About you

We offer internships to hard-working individuals aiming for a career in engineering. We're all about writing the best possible code, and have opportunities for developers interested in both front and back-end work. Potato developers usually use some combination of Python & Django, Javascript frameworks and libraries such as Angular or React and HTML5+CSS/SCSS, but we'd love to hear from you even if you don't necessarily have in-depth knowledge of all the things.
