MiniCorp is a startup studio from Dublin, Ireland. We partner with startup founders to help them create new products, services, craft new brands and create successful companies. We get in at the early stage of developing a company and product where we can make the most impact. These people are passionate about solving problems through technology. We are too.

Our Ruby on Rails Engineer internship allows us to find great talent. Teach and mentor them through problem solving and business development. This is not just an engineering role, you’ll discover how to create businesses, find target markets and above all else, ship great products.

Our prerequisites are simple:

Write great quality code.

We’ll need to see a GitHub profile or similar. Something where we can take a peak and the genius in your work. We’re not talking Enigma cryptography here, but something to show you understand good coding practices.
