Executive Office of the President - Software Engineer Internship

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The Office of Administration Student Internship Program is recruiting the nation's best and brightest software engineering students to the Executive Office of the President, Office of Administration. Software Engineer Interns (SEIs) will work with the newly created Internal Software Design Team (ISDT) which is revolutionizing computer usage and business processes in the Executive Office of the President, including the White House. SEIs will have tremendous impact throughout the organization by providing expert software development and business process engineering services. It has been shown that relatively little software development upfront can save many task hours in the future, while also increasing accuracy and reducing errors in data. Many repetitive and time-consuming tasks can often be automated. Software engineers are able to create data design and formatting solutions to handle future needs and ever changing goals. SEIs will lend their expertise to Executive Office of the President offices and help them automate tasks, streamline business processes, and optimally format data for future use.
