Job Experience, Logos-Style
Sorry, there are no good internships available. Only awesome ones.
A good internship lets you watch the pros; an awesome internship makes you a pro. Good is boring. Awesome is Logos.
Logos Bible Software offers 12-week software development internships that throw you into the action, so you’ll be tackling real-world problems, writing code that changes lives, and getting one-on-one mentoring from our award-winning developers. You’ll be using the latest technology, not grabbing coffee for the boss—in fact, interns get unlimited free espresso and soda pop.
Oh, and we’ll pay you.
As a development intern, you’ll engage with the latest academic research in information retrieval, the semantic web, information visualization, search technology, cloud computing, and community-oriented products. Our applications use graph drawing and multi-dimensional scaling.
And you won’t be alone. We had 24 summer interns in 2012, and we plan to have at least 30 this year. You’ll fit right in with the 300+ Logos employees here, too. You might not want to leave when your internship is up, and that’s pretty normal—a lot of our developers started as Logos interns.
Logos is located in the beautiful, fun, mountain- and water-ringed university town of Bellingham, Washington, smack-dab between Seattle and Vancouver, BC. As an intern, you’ll have the opportunity to take advantage of all that Bellingham and the Pacific Northwest have to offer.
If you love writing code, working with the latest technologies, and helping people everywhere study the Bible and manage Christian content, apply today. Send a cover letter, a résumé, and an example of something you’ve created to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good is boring. Awesome is Logos. Be awesome with us!
Last summer, we hired interns from all over the country. See what they have to say about Logos internships.
Chris, a recent graduate from Baylor University, describes several exciting aspects of his internship at Logos Bible Software.
Asa, a recent graduate of Abilene Christian University, talks about what he found meaningful as a Logos intern.
“I started as an intern at Logos halfway through my CS masters program. My initial goal was just to gain some work experience. I very quickly discovered I learned a lot more working at Logos than I did in school. I ended my education with a BS and started my career with Logos. It really wasn't a hard choice.
On the first day of my internship I got a bit of a surprise when I was assigned a web project, an area of development I had never worked in before. I was skeptical at first because I had previously dismissed web development as an uninteresting area to work in. Turns out I was completely wrong; I totally loved web development. Still do it full-time today. My little intern project is still alive and very successful, running on tens of thousands of third-party web sites. It’s very cool to write code that actually ships in a real product during an internship.
Regarding the ‘our best students are going to Microsoft, Google, etc., . . .’ question, one of my classmates interned at Logos at the same time as me. Logos passed on him, but Microsoft hired him. I think that says it all.”
“I interned with Logos way back in the summer of 1994. I had a great time, returned full-time the next summer, and never looked back.”
Angela—from Texas, Summer Intern ’11
“I have really been amazed at how much time each developer at Logos has been willing to spend working one-on-one with me to help me learn and excel. These employees have huge workloads already, but they are still willing to give up hours each week to work with me. Their commitment to me has been essential to my success here. It has helped my confidence grow. I can see my potential as a software developer more than ever before!
“I also had a great time at the Xbox game night. My favorite part was meeting other Logos employees and watching them have so much fun. I was also really glad they were willing to take the time to show me how to play!”
David—from Washington, Summer Intern ’11
“Everything here, from the free soda to the overarching company policies, has blown all of my previous expectations of how a software company should be run out of the water. It is an amazing company that cares about its people.”
Ismael—from Florida, Summer Intern ’11
“Lots of places offer great learning opportunities, but only Logos throws in a Saeco Super Automatic IDEA De Luxe espresso machine! That thing is AMAZING! I’ve never written code so quickly or so bug-free. Sometimes my fingers just twitch and the right keys get pressed, and I don’t even understand how. I’m in awe just thinking of what I might accomplish if I ever beat my personal best of five cups in one day!
“Seriously though, a week ago, my server at lunch asked me if I was glad it was Friday, and I couldn’t in good faith reply ‘yes.’ In just over a month at Logos, I’ve progressed from never having developed for the iPhone to having complex and exciting features incorporated into our mobile applications. My internship has been the perfect balance of work and learning, and the feedback I’ve received on my code has definitely made me a better programmer. The attention to detail in the products is so great, the environment so welcoming, and the other employees and interns so friendly, that I truly enjoy coming into work every day.”
