Software Engineering Summer Intern, SÅ?sh

Who We Are

SÅ?sh is being built by Offline Labs, Inc., a small and talented team in
San Francisco, CA. Weâ??re seed-funded by amazing investors (Sequoia
Capital, General Catalyst, Redpoint Ventures, Polaris Ventures, and
others).

SÅ?sh is a new way to discover and share fun things to do with friends.
Since people spend 90% of their time and money offline locally, this is
a profound problem to solve.  More information here:
http://sosh.com/pages/summer-intern-2012/.
 
Weâ??re looking for 1-2 software engineering interns to join our team
for the summer. 

What You Bring to the Table

*Intelligence. You should be pursuing a BS or MS in Computer Science (or
equivalent). And you should be able to pick up things outside your
comfort zone.
*Self-direction. We want people who thrive in an intense startup
environment. We work very hard.
*Enthusiasm. For consumer internet, startups and building things.
*Experience with Python and/or JavaScript is preferred but not required.
*Bonus points if you can send us a link to an impressive online project
youâ??ve worked on.

What We Offer

*Responsibility--and a ton of it. You\'ll work on the same challenging
problems as everyone else, and your work will hit the live site. Often.
*Startup experience.  You\'ll wear many hats, move fast, work hard,
learn about building a large, scalable product, and get live experience
with both web and mobile development. There are no \'front-end\' or
\'back-end\' roles here; your work will touch the entire web-stack.
*Sweet location & benefits. You\'ll work alongside our team at our
office in downtown San Francisco. We provide a generous stipend, dinner
every night, healthy snacks all day and relocation assistance, if
applicable.

How to Apply

If youâ??re interested, email us your resume and any relevant links
(Github, favorite project, etc.) to jobs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Bonus points
if you include an answer to the following question:

In your favorite programming language, write a program to read a
multiple line text file and write the N longest lines to a new file,
where N and the file to be read are specified on the command line. A
working solution is essential, but extra points for optimization!
