Syneidis, Cybersecurity Company Offering 6 month Internship, Apply by Nov 13

Syneidis is a growing cybersecurity company based in Barcelona, Spain. We are developing web apps and mobile apps that offer easy-to-use solutions to store and share information securely, for corporate and personal purposes. We already have apps in production with users (visit www.hushapp.io for more information and web.hushapp.io to use the actual app - you can register for free), and are constantly improving it and developing new features based on users’ feedbacks and our own tech roadmap.

We are currently offering co-op / internship positions to students who are interested in any of the following tech areas:

- They will have the opportunity to develop the frontend and backend/API development of web and mobile apps, getting either their first exposure to the world of software, or expanding on their previous experiences

- They might also be involved in projects related to adapting our software to hardware devices (or integrating with such devices), such as authentication tokens (yubikeys, etc) and USB keys

- They will also have the opportunity, if interested, to work on our Infrastructure (AWS, Google Cloud Storage, etc) and CI/CD (continuous integration, continuous deployment)

- Finally, those who are interested in digital security, cybersecurity, and/or encryption can be involved in these aspects as well.

We are interviewing and welcoming students on an ongoing/rolling basis, both for short-term and longer term placements.

Students will be involved both with improvements to existing features and to creating new features from scratch, as they gain more experience. 

For the software components, the technological stack of the project consists of the following technologies: 

(students don’t need to have previous knowledge of all, but of course some knowledge of experience in any of the following is a plus)

  • EcmaScript (Plain vanilla Javascript)
  • MySQL
  • Firebase (Auth, Database, Storage, Analytics and Crashlytics)
  • Php
  • MySQL Database
  • ReactJS + React Native + Webpack
  • Node
  • Android SDK (Java)
  • iOS/Swift
  • Memcached
  • Git 

Most importantly, a willingness to learn and positive attitude are appreciated ;) to fit in with our international team that is young and friendly and enjoys a mutually-respectful, relaxed and supportive work ethics/culture.   

We have people from various continents and 6 nationalities, and English is our working language. 

Barcelona is also a great place to live and experience while doing your internship/coop. 

NOTE:  This position is a 6-month internship from May-December 2020.  Knowledge of Spanish is preferred, but not required, and support with visa issues is available.  If you are interested, send your resume/cover letter to Joe Tort at jtort@purdue.edu by November 13.
