Intern – Solutions Developer: Two roles available The Solution Developer Intern works on Acxiom and third-party software to build solutions for business problems defined by specific business requirements. In this internship, you will gain knowledge of and draw upon technical and data processing knowledge to tackle realtime platform problems for our clients’ solutions. You may configure or tune software, work on automation processes to tie components together, develop custom application code to accommodate defined requirements, or collaborate with others to add extensions to existing Acxiom software. You may also provide new development, ongoing maintenance, and support and optimization of solutions for the account teams you are supporting. A typical day will begin with reviewing upcoming work with the project team. The work may be debugging and solving issues, reviewing designs with developer peers, or implementing and coding software solutions to meet the client’s needs. The fast-paced account means often two days may not be the same, providing opportunities to learn a variety of platforms and solve different kinds of problems throughout the internship.

These roles require a minimum of 20 hours/week commitment and a minimum 3.25 GPA. We are seeking individuals in the Information Technology / Computer Science space who can begin this fall with an anticipated graduation date in May or December 2020. Students must be able to work on-site in Conway, Arkansas, during scheduled hours and for the duration of the internship.

We use an MIS system (called “Pace” sold by a company named EFI) and have its API functionality licensed. This API contains a full suite of SOAP services for reading, creating, updating, and deleting objects as well as triggering internal processes. We’re looking for students to help leverage this API to work on projects that range from small back-end scripts that enhance or fix our MIS’ capabilities to larger projects involving front-ends our customers can interact with.

We can mentor and teach the specifics of how to use this API but would find valuable students who bring to the table:

  • Comfort writing simple, readable, and well-documented code (the SDK EFI provides us has code samples in C#, java, perl, PHP, and vb.net)
  • Understanding from a structural viewpoint good front-end and system design
  • Strong problem-solving sensibilities and willingness to help and learn in whatever ways the project takes us

In return, we hope to provide:

  • An environment outside of the classroom to gain experience working and solving problems in a real-world business environment
  • A manageable 10-15 hour work week that can complement and be flexible with a school schedule; be worked remotely or after normal business hours
