Hi, We’re AppFolio.

We’re innovators, changemakers, and collaborators. We’re more than just a software company — we’re a cloud-based powerhouse that creates products to make our customers’ lives easier. We’re revolutionizing the way people do business, and we want your ideas, your enthusiasm, and your passion to help us keep on innovating.

We love where we work, and you can, too.

We are hiring a Full Stack Software Engineering Intern for Spring or Summer of 2020 to contribute to our rapid product development pace. We work collaboratively to set the technical direction for our SaaS products, developing easy-to-use solutions for our customers. Our engineers find a deep satisfaction in building things that customers actually need. We focus on delivering value to customers and understand that this often means delivering code that isn’t perfect, but meets customer needs.

This is an ideal opportunity for someone who has a passion for building leading edge software and is driven to help build a successful SaaS product used by thousands of happy businesses. We foster an environment that empowers small teams to collaboratively set the technical direction of our solutions.

This opening is on our AppFolio Property Manager product development team.

Responsibilities

  • Develop scalable, robust, and simple web-based solutions to solve complex business problems
  • Formulate, implement, and evaluate algorithms and database queries to support SaaS scalability and stability.
  • Implement new features and optimize existing ones to drive maximum performance
  • Use test-driven development, code reviews and continuous integration to deliver high quality software, and rapidly fix bugs as they come up.
  • Work closely with, and incorporate feedback from other engineering team members, QA, and product owners, and our APM customers
  • Leveraging agile practices, encourage collaboration, prioritization, and urgency to develop at a rapid pace
  • Research, share, and recommend new technologies and trends

You know you’re the right fit if…

  • You’ve heard of Ruby and Rails, and have some experience working with a language like Ruby, Java, or Python. You may even know enough about Javascript to have opinions about how frequently “the new hot thing” changes.
  • You love learning about new technologies, but understand the value of continuing to use something old if it still does everything you need it to do.
  • You care about the long-term maintainability of the codebase and will learn to advocate for refactoring and clean-ups where appropriate.
  • You care about work life balance and want your company to care about it to; you’ll put in the extra hour when needed but won’t let it become a habit.

Additional Skills And Knowledge

  • Currently pursuing BS, MS, or Ph.D in Computer Science or related technical discipline
  • Hands-on work/internship experience developing web-based applications, preferably in a SaaS environment
  • Creativity, ability to solve complex problems without a roadmap

Nice To Have

  • Experience working across all levels of the development stack
  • Experience with some areas of our tech like Ruby on Rails, React, Redux, AWS, SOA
  • Familiarity with Agile software development processes: Scrum or Kanban
  • Familiarity with Test-Driven-Development

If you are interested in creating exceptional SaaS products, and contributing to a successful company, apply today!

We gladly accept applicants who meet only a few of these requirements. If AppFolio sounds like a place you’d fit, we’d love to hear from you. Talented engineers come from varied experience backgrounds!
