Web Developer

Internship

Part-Time

What if you could help millions of people use a tool that has a real impact on their everyday life? That's the opportunity with Envision's small but passionate team. We empower people who are blind or have low vision to access everyday visual information for themselves. Because it isn’t just information. It’s knowledge, independence, and possibility.

The Product

Envision products articulate visual information into speech.

The Envision app is free for everyone! It uses your smartphone's camera to speak out written information, describes surroundings and objects, and even tells you who's nearby. Excelling in all kinds of text and object recognition, Envision can read the text in over 60 languages. Be it handwritten notes, text on food packages, or the pages of an entire book.

Our Envision Glasses meanwhile brings our award-winning software to smart glasses, enabling the unprecedented experience of unobtrusive access to the visual world. With features ranging from real-time text recognition, to voice controls and even hands-free video calling, Envision Glasses open the door for the future of wearable assistive technology., πŸ•Ά

The role

The core backend of the Envision App and Glasses has grown significantly in the past year. The backend consists of Firebase and is built on GCP. The backend hosts our ML models and also consists of micro-services that power the App and Glasses. There's a fair amount of automation that needs to be happen and new services need to built on top of it.

Also, Envision currently uses Webflow for all our web development needs. We do have a few really exciting projects that we'd like to build with Webflow and integrate with our existing backends.

As a Web Developer Intern at Envision you'll have the chance to work on a variety of internal and external Web apps. As an intern, you'll be working directly with the Envision AI App, Glasses to improve the Envision backend, automate important internal systems and learn how complex machine learning is deployed at scale.

In this role, you'll also be working with the Envision's Design team to build pixel-perfect, responsive, accessible landing pages and web sites using Webflow. If you're someone who truly wants to understand how good design and scalable web backends can change lives of thousands of visually impaired people the world over, then this is for you.

  • You're strong in the fundamentals of HTML, CSS & Javascript(Typescript fans welcome!)
  • You can work with REST APIs easily and can quickly prototype features. Bonus points if you've designed REST APIs for a project before.
