[INTERN] Comp Sci / Design, Dash

From: Jamyn Edis <>
I’ve pasted below some background on Dash… Please let us know if you’d like some more specifics on the company/product. In terms of what we are looking for – we could use help on two areas from students (grad or undergrad) for projets or internships:
  • Computer science / engineering – student interested in mobile dev, server-side, website development and potentially hardware
    • Mobile – iOS/Android
    • Website – HTML5 page
    • Server-side – big data analysis, NoSql, Hadoop etc
    • Hardware – open hardware device connects to car via OBD II, electrical engineering
  • Design – both aesthetic sensibilities for brand identity (creative assets, look/feel, marketing materials), as well as specifically mobile and web UX development
