This internship provides an opportunity to gain insight into how a small software development team operates and produces custom software solutions in-house to meet an organization’s needs. The Software Development Intern will work directly with the North Oaks Programming Team and participate in rapid prototyping, front-end development, and back-end development tasks. They will see first-hand how agile project methodologies are applied by actively participating in stand-ups, user story design sessions, project scoping evaluations, and peer code reviews. They will also see the various ways technology and automation are heavily integrated into the day-to-day operations of a health system.

Lastly, the Software Development Intern will be assigned their own project and/or system feature for which they will lead the development efforts and demonstrate understanding of key concepts learned throughout the course of the internship.
