Seam Social Labs is a research and innovation company on a mission to empower disinvested communities. Our vision is to create more transparent & ethical systems so community stakeholders can co-create solutions together. Think of us as the Alfreds to the Batman!

Our team is virtual and based in New York City. But we have an office in Newark, NJ (temporarily closed). We don’t have set hours --rather, we focus on milestones. We are open-minded, solutions-driven, and totally into research and data. Be ready to work with a fast-paced team.

We are hiring a Backend Engineering Intern. This intern’s role will be to work 15 hours per week with our Head of Product Development in order to design chatbot logics, implement special engineering projects, and to conduct research on product optimization. 

We are looking for a candidate who is a coder and problem solver at heart, is looking to put their skills to use, and ready to learn some new problem-solving skills. Interns who have left our five months program have all learned how to lead research, present innovative ideas, and left with new coding languages in their toolkit. So you should be ready to learn and challenge yourself!
