Posted 2 weeks ago

Vinted is currently home to more than 200 top-tier software engineers. For a third year in a row, we want to offer something to the people who are just starting out in our field of work – and we are therefore continuing our internship program: the Vinted Academy. If you’re new to engineering and looking for a professional start (and also to get the coveted “work experience” on your CV) then keep on reading. 
What is Vinted Academy? It’s a two month academy at Vinted, during which Android, iOS, web and backend developers, QA and machine learning engineers, site reliability engineers and designers will all work together to create a real product from start to finish. You will learn from the best Vinted engineers during workshops, get personal mentorship and valuable insights into the way real tech companies work. Interns will be distributed into teams, each guided by team leads as well as mentors who are all experienced Vinted engineers. The Academy will run from 28 June to 31 August 2021 in Vinted’s new office in Naujamiestis, Vilnius. 
It will be a full time internship and you will be expected to be available every full work day. We will try our best to make the academy happen live at the office, but reality of the pandemic might not allow this. In that case, we will bring it online!

Who are we looking for? Applicants to the Vinted Academy run the gamut, from Android, iOS, web and backend developers to quality assurance, site reliability and machine learning engineers who are students, recent graduates, self-taught and more. Essentially, we are looking for individuals with basic coding skills, but who currently lack work experience in this field.
Site reliability engineering (SRE) is a discipline that incorporates aspects of software engineering and applies them to infrastructure and operations problems (definition from Wikipedia). At Vinted we have several SRE teams, each focusing on different areas: data services, observability, applications, Kubernetes platform, infrastructure and network.
