Software Engineering Internship

Greater Seattle Area - Engineering Internship
You: You love understanding how things work. You have technical skills, are curious, creative, and love making a difference. You have a growth mentality—you love exploring and learning new things. You’re ready to take what you have learned and apply it to something that matters. Why? Because you want to make a difference, and we do, too. 

Here at Transparent Systems, we believe that in our on-demand economy built of 1s and 0s, moving money between two parties should be as quick and as easy as sending a text message. Leveraging cryptographically secured distributed networks, we’re reducing the friction in making and receiving payments. We’re also doing away with conventional costs per transaction, transforming the way businesses pay to get paid.

We create solutions, not currencies. Our goal is to develop a more inclusive economy that empowers you, your business, and your money. 

Collaboration. Integrity. Curiosity. Quality. Diversity. We strive to live our core values in everything we do—how we work together, treat each other, and in the products we build. Will you join us?

•   A curiosity and passion for tech – if you have a passion project you work on outside of school, a school project you took further because you were having fun, a blog or podcast you love to follow, a previous internship project you love to show off, etc., let’s chat about it
