About the program

Our 11-week summer internship program provides a unique learning opportunity for rising seniors to work on real-world assignments that expand far beyond their textbook learning. With dedicated mentors, interns are trusted to work on high-profile customer projects that allow them to learn the ins and outs of the software development lifecycle. Over the years, these projects have included building a custom email to CMS integration for a major media customer, a federated search integration with Giphy, and custom enhancements for a Fortune 100 company's digital asset management system.

Our aim, however, is to provide interns with a complete picture of everything we do at Brightspot. Beyond their projects, interns attend weekly lunch and learns with company leaders to provide interns with valuable insights into various fields ranging from user experience to marketing and demos on how Brightspot is being used by companies around the globe. Since the internship program's founding in 2014, over 90% of rising seniors have received full-time offers to return to Brightspot after graduation.

Everyone at Brightspot will go out of their way to make sure you succeed and accomplish your goals. During my internship, I learned new technologies, gained experience working on a team, and even developed an exciting new feature for Brightspot.
