Internship Opportunities

Hone your technical skills in a creative agency environment, while tackling real-world projects.

Are you someone starting out in the industry? We were just like you once and know how helpful it is to learn from someone who’s been there.

That’s why we started the Planet Argon intership program. As an intern, you can choose a career path you’re interested and spend a few months with the team learning what it takes to make it happen!

The Timing

Our program runs year-round as positions are needed, and typically run 8 weeks. We can work with you on a schedule and timeframe that works best for both parties, should you be interested in one of our open internships

Choose Your Role

We offer five unique roles. Select the role that best describes the position you are looking for, then explore the qualifications and requirements.

User Experience & Design Strategy

☹️ Closed

Are you the type that loves to design solutions for user problems? Does generating ideas and brainstorming sound like a fun way to spend your day? In this position, you’ll learn how to uncover problems, develop roadmaps based on design strategy, wireframe solutions and work on bringing ideas to life.

Project Management

☹️ Closed

Not really a designer or developer, but love to manage projects and people? Are you analytical and love to stay organized and focused? As a Project Management Intern, you’ll learn how to build projects, maintain budgets and keep an eye on schedules and resources in order to manage the biggest clients in the industry.

Front-End Development

☹️ Closed

Want to dive deeper into HTML/CSS? Love how animation and transitions can make an application more delightful? Great! Sign up! As a front-end developer you’ll work closely with the design team and backend development to bring ideas to life, just like that.

Back-End Development

☹️ Closed

Looking to deepen your coding skills? Interested in Ruby on Rails? Our backend team is the core to our work. As an intern, you’ll learn to develop alongside our talented programmers, from building to launch, writing specs, testing and everything in between.

Marketing & Sales

☹️ Closed

Are you the type who has an eye for brands and marketing campaigns? Do you have the ability to understand and speak to people in your copy (instead of just at them)? As a marketing and sales intern, you’ll be focused on how content can promote the brand and target the right audience.

Portrait of Gauri Joshi with a friendly smile

I am working as an Associate Software Developer with the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. My internship at Planet Argon definitely helped me succeed here - especially my experience in working on legacy codebases in Rails. I continue to do development work in Rails and have immersed myself in a few things DevOps related, including setting up CI pipelines and containerizing apps with Docker - tools that I was introduced to during my internship! I'm excited to continue growing and learning more as a developer.

I appreciated the warm welcome and getting to work on so many projects that expanded my knowledge and skill set. I learned so much while here: how to work with a team, communicate, navigate new (to me) tools, and take accountability for work progress. I loved working with a team that valued my input and ideas, and I'm so grateful for the exceptional mentorship and guidance I received.

I am so appreciative of Planet Argon's amazing staff (my now friends), clients & company ethos, and bottom line, their openness to code school interns of all backgrounds/genders/places in life. As a 34-year-old new mom who got hired straight out of this Planet Argon internship, I am beyond grateful.

I can confidently say that Planet Argon was an excellent company to intern for. I received mentorship from every developer at some point. I was exposed to so many different libraries, frameworks, tools, and applications of which I had the freedom to explore and learn.

Planet Argon Team Working

Becoming an intern was a great way to jump start my career. I hit so many walls trying to teach myself the ins and outs of design/development. Being at Planet Argon each day meant having a fountain of knowledge available to me whenever I needed. Being in this environment, as well as constructive critiques, helped improve the quality of my work in such a short period of time!
