As an intern at Tegus, you’ll join an existing engineering team where you will work on shipping new features to our customers.

Build robust, well-designed and effective software that solves complex problems.

Test, review and deploy code quickly. We deploy over 10 times per day and manage major releases with feature flags rather than coordinated deployments.

Research, learn and share new techniques for solving complex engineering problems. We’re a highly collaborative team and we push each other to find better solutions every day.

Write tools and develop practices for the engineering team. From GraphQL-to-Typescript compilers to fully automated deployments, we take the time to invest heavily in our own productivity.

Own projects from end-to-end. On a given day you might be building a system to measure search engine performance, reworking an integration with a telephony provider, or designing a UI component library.

Analyze and design solutions to business problems. Companies that throw solutions over the wall to engineers are wasting half their abilities. At Tegus, you’ll be fully involved in determining what to do, not just doing it.


While prior experience or internships are relevant, this is an entry level position and no previous experience is required.

Experience with Ruby on Rails, Python, Vue or Typescript is a plus but not at all required.

Familiarity with Agile software development processes and software testing.

Ability and desire to work in an open and team-oriented environment.

Benefits & Perks

Remote-friendly – work wherever you’re most productive.

Earn competitive pay while gaining in-depth training and unique insights into the primary research industry.

Fantastic culture with regular virtual company-wide events, including cooking classes, yoga, meditation and more.

The opportunity to attend peer-nominated quarterly DEI events.

Working for a thriving, performance-based company that values promoting from within, career advancement and transparency.

And for candidates in Chicago:

The option to work from a state of the art office in the heart of Chicago’s Loop featuring standing desks, nursing parent rooms, gender neutral bathrooms, subsidized gym access, and full amenity floor.

Fully stocked kitchen with rotating snacks and beverages.

Don’t meet every single requirement?

Studies have shown that women and people of color are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification. At Tegus we are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace, so if you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyways. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles.
