The Software Engineering Intern is responsible for analysis, design, implementation, unit and functional testing of integrated software products. The goal is to produce high quality code for a technology organization that is responsible for applications that manage the end to end testing experience, from registration and payments, to test construction and delivery, thru result and business reporting and intelligence. To do so, you will have an opportunity to use industry best practices while working in a team of high-performing professionals.
Please note there are two separate Software Development internships at Pearson, this one (focused on making things and making sure they are right), and the Software Development Engineer in Test (focused on breaking things and making sure they are right), apply to the one that is the best fit for your interests and personality bent. This one involves more hands-on programming than the other one but does not include as much testing focus particularly at the functional level.
You will have the chance to experience “life in the POD”, such as it is now with much remote work, and build skills in using programming languages, advanced testing techniques, and agile development methodology. As part of the software engineering internship, you will partner with a technology mentor to help you continue to grow, learn, and contribute.
This internship also has an Engineering focus where you'll have an opportunity to participate in Panel Discussions (Leadership & Former Interns), learn more about our broader organization by being exposed to "Day in the Life of" job overviews, and engage in all-intern social events.
The Intern will:
Participate in team activities like backlog grooming, sprint planning, daily stand-up, retrospectives, and reviews
Execute coding and testing tasks for agile stories as part of an agile development team
