Our languages and tools are diversified and according to the needs of the team: 

.NET, .NET Core, C#, Asp, Java, Angular, React, WPF, Javascript, Spring, MVC, CSS, SQL, Azure Devops/TFS/GIT, Cloud Azure, Kubernetes, and more.

We will take the time to discuss your preferences and interests with you to choose the right internship for you among all those offered.

  • Current: Bachelor's degree (BAC) in computer science, software engineering, computer engineering
  • Current: Interest in Project Management tools and methodologies is an asset, basic understanding of MS Office productivity tools, including Outlook, Excel, Word and PowerPoint
  • Be looking for an eligible internship that will be credited towards your training.

WHAT WILL YOU GET?

  • WORK MODE: Flexible - AGILE/SCRUM approach in a LEAN context (continuous improvement) combined with more traditional methodologies – we’re in an exciting transformational stage!
  • TRAINING: no worries, we take care of your integration in the team and your training (you can't know everything already!).
  • CONDITIONS: flexible schedule, social activities and, if everything goes back to normal, a low-cost cafeteria service and a free gym (you have to burn off the extra calories from lunch dessert!).
