Software Development Internship (2022)
At Chatham Financial, we’re committed to making a positive impact for our clients and markets, communities, and each other. That starts with hiring people who demonstrate intellectual curiosity, tenacity, and a desire for collaboration and leadership growth. And yes, we know for most developers the word “financial” often conjures images of horror (e.g., suits and ties, cubicle farms, siloed teams, layers of creativity-killing bureaucracy).
Don’t fret. Working here is a unique experience.
Summer@Chatham offers the opportunity to experience our unique culture firsthand while gaining exposure and expertise with software development in the financial markets.
What will I be doing?
You will be embedded within one of the Technology teams at Chatham that focus on Engineering, Financial Modeling and Product Development. You will be assigned to a development project and work alongside experienced engineers and see how software is developed, tested and released in a professional environment.
You will have the opportunity to learn new technologies and apply the coding patterns and principles that you’ve learned in textbooks and classrooms to solve a real problem.
Your assigned project will give you the opportunity to add value to the team and contribute to the work at Chatham.
Examples of past projects and their Chatham and industry‐wide impact include: developing a machine learning audio transcriber to capture important data in phone calls, developing a tool to manage market data feeds, building a website that helps monitor and manage all the services in our stack, adding features to make the analytics tracking for our website more robust.
What will I learn?
We want you to be able to jump right in and get experience with some of the latest technologies, tools and frameworks in Web and API Development, DevOps, etc. and work with experienced and fun software engineers, designers, product managers in an agile environment.
Our technology stack is constantly evolving but currently includes C# .NET, Angular, React, RabbitMQ, SQL, Redis, Azure, Python, etc... We also use developer tools like TeamCity, GitLab, Docker, NPM, and Artifactory.
How will this experience make me a better person?
We hope that Summer@Chatham is an experience that not only cultivates your technical and professional skills but also contributes to your personal growth. Mid‐summer you’ll participate in self assessments that will provide insight into your natural abilities and how you can influence your future.
This is a learning experience you can leverage beyond the summer.
