We are looking for talented, motivated Co-op students, eager to learn from wicked smart developers and improve their coding skills. This isn’t your average work-place. With a rooftop deck, beer fridge and daily ping pong tournaments, we keep it casual and cool at the Wave headquarters. Regular program students are welcome to come as well to find out about possible career opportunities!

What we are looking for (in a nutshell):

  • a solid command of at least one programming language
  • projects/portfolio pieces or previous jobs you can show/tell us about
  • experience with Python/Ruby and Distributed Version Control (Git/Mercurial) gets us excited

Sound good? Come out, have a slice and learn more about what we do, and how you might work with us in the future. Be prepared with some contact information, a firm handshake and a dazzling smile. If you can, bring a cool project you are proud of and show off. We are interested to see what you’ve been up to. Also, good jokes are always, always encouraged.

Target Students:
