Remote Summer Intern
Online education is no longer a novel or niche idea. It is the fastest-growing segment in higher education, accounting for 20% of all enrollees and 35% of graduate-level certificates and degrees. It’s also getting increasingly competitive, as more and better programs are launched each semester. Universities need to go online quickly, economically, and elegantly, creating programs that students can’t wait to tell their friends about and that their professors want to teach.
Noodle helps universities bring programs online with flexibility, transparency, alignment, efficiency, and joy. That’s why more top universities chose us last year than all other online program managers combined. We are a passionate team of technologists, educators, and experts. Online learning has the potential to transform higher education; if you’re interested in being part of that journey, keep reading!
About the Internship Program
Our remote program is scheduled to start June 1st, 2021
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until the cohort is full. Noodle interns are paid $18/hour and work an average of 40 hours per week. If you are applying to our internship program, you must have proper authorization to work in the U.S. for the duration of the program.
About the Role
The Data Science internship is an opportunity for motivated applicants to develop data science and data analytics skills by working closely with Data Science professionals at Noodle. Interns will gain experience with all stages of CRISP-DM.
Data Science interns will work closely with their manager, collaborating cross-functionally across teams as necessary. The Data Science internship is an opportunity for motivated applicants to work closely with the Data Team in developing data marts with SQL, fitting models using Python, building dashboards in Tableau and will have an opportunity to learn how to plan, build and deliver data products through hands-on work. SQL, Python, Tableau, Git and Jira are good to know, but not necessary. You must know at least one programming language (bonus points if it is R or Python) at a non-beginner level.
As a Data Science Intern You Will:
• Assist with feature requests for existing Tableau Dashboards, leveraging SQL heavily.
• Help build or improve a prospect scoring machine learning pipeline using AWS Sagemaker.
• Write logical tests for SQL views (“Data Mart”) that drive our reporting.
• Work with the Data Science Product Manager to learn processes and rituals that help us work cross-functionally and understand our users’ requirements.
• Take part in day-to-day team activities and other assigned duties
As part of the Noodle community, you will also be able to take part in remote company-wide meetings and gatherings and are encouraged to learn from Noodlers across all our teams and companies, not just your own.
For the majority of the program, interns from all departments will have the opportunity to take part in weekly leadership talks or workshops aimed at providing practical advice for career growth and expanding intellectual horizons. Planned topics include personal branding, design thinking, personal finance, job search strategy, and more.
We’re looking for self-starters who are not afraid to ask questions, communicate openly, and who can proactively find ways to help their team solve problems.
- are community oriented – they have a group-first mentality, are generous with their time and energy and always express gratitude for their teammates’ contributions

- have excellent verbal and written communication skills
- are comfortable creating documentation in industry-standard software
- Google Docs/MS Office (presentation software, spreadsheets, text-based documents)
