We are looking for an intern who can function as an API engineer. This will require strong coding skills in a number of different languages, including Ruby, Java, JavaScript, Scala, and Node.js, because APIs are developed for web and cloud integration. As such, APIs differ from more conventional software applications in that they are platform independent and must be adaptable to an organization's needs and able to run in any web or cloud-based application. As more and more users avail themselves of cloud services such as data storage and retrieval, data security management is imperative and the engineer must have considerable expertise in data and server security to guard against possible exploits that could adversely affect the organization or end user. API engineers must possess strong oral and written communication skills because they collaborate and consult with other engineers as well as organizational experts in various fields that are part of the organization.
