What you’ll get out of it:

  • You will create a name for yourself by getting to work with and support some of the fastest-growing, most forward-thinking companies
  • You will get exposure to real technical problems every company faces (databases) that you will be able to use for the rest of your career, whether that’s starting your own company or helping scale another.
  • You will experience the best of both worlds in a hybrid work setting, with 2-3 days in office in the New York area
