Required Skills
Candidates for this position will:
– Have a strong fundamental understanding of data structures, algorithms, and software design principles
– Be proficient in at least one programming language, such as JavaScript/TypeScript, Java, C# or Python, and be willing to learn new languages and technologies on the job

Preferred Skills
Ideal candidates for this position may also have some previous experience with:
– Web application development (back-end)
– Document-based databases (e.g. MongoDB)
– Basic front-end web development in HTML/CSS/JavaScript
– Some experience with popular game engines, such as Unity or Unreal Engine

This role is for our Lisbon office.

All eligible candidates for this internship MUST:
– Be duly registered with the Employment Center (IEFP)

– Have NOT had any connection (i.e. employment, service provision or internship contract of any kind) with Doppio or a related entity in the last 12 months; AND
– Have NOT held any other internship financed by IEFP in the past; or if you have, it was more than 12 months ago, AND you’ve either obtained an additional qualification level or a qualification in a different area since then
– Additionally, all eligible foreign (i.e. non-Portuguese citizen) candidates MUST have a residency permit in Portugal, or proof of submitting a request for one in SEF (“Serviço de Estrangeiros e Fronteiras,” or “Foreign Borders Service”).
