For the last few years Metail have hosted a small number of internships in our tech team. These are often really great experiences, giving students new skills and the chance to focus on a challenging and fun project as part of one of our teams, and give our teams scope to pursue some ideas that they might not otherwise find head space to do.
Some of the things our interns have done in the last two years are:
- Created a prototype to allow users to look around a garment in 3D using Google Glasses or the Amazon FirePhone.
- Contributed to a cutting edge 3D face and head research project
- Created an automated test and performance system for our apps
- Produced a new model of behavioural analytics based on Metail user browsing behaviour
Our interns are generally undergraduate students, but that’s not universally the case, and they have led on to permanent careers too. This year, a number of teams are looking for interns, so there are a range of opportunities: front-end app development, middle-tier Clojure development, garment simulation, computer graphics programming, data science and computer vision / machine learning.
