The Bold co-op student program is designed to kickstart the careers of tomorrow’s developers by integrating them into today’s fast-paced work environment. As a Bold co-op you will tackle real work and provide value to Bold brands, directly impacting people’s businesses and livelihoods. You will be integrated into a team and provided a dedicated mentor who cares about your success — because when you succeed, we do too.
You will be assigned to a specific team that is a good fit for your skills, interests, and level of experience. After hitting the ground running, you will attend meetings and discussions, be assigned real tasks, and receive constructive feedback from mentors and team leads.
As a co-op developer you can expect to do everything a full-time developer does. You’ll start off your day with a team stand-up to review what you’ve got to do. Following that, you’ll dive right into creating new features, fixing bugs, writing tests, and participating in design decisions. You’ll also spend your days creating and reviewing merge requests, pair programming, taking part in agile development practices, deploying changes to production, and using Slack to send memes to your teammates.
You will also have a dedicated mentor making sure you are given the best resources to foster your growth. Over the course of your work term, you will gain new skills and don’t need to be afraid to make mistakes; at Bold we embrace mistakes as excellent learning opportunities.
Currently our co-op program is only open to developers. Opportunities in other departments sometimes open up, so keep your eye on our careers page for updates.
We have worked with students from a variety of programs. Most commonly, students are enrolled in a computer science, business information technology, or applied computer science program. We are open to students with similar skills and experience as well.
Learn more on the development team page.
We post co-op opportunities directly with colleges and universities to ensure fair access to all students. Please follow your respective program’s process and keep your eyes open for upcoming opportunities there.
What first comes to mind when I think of Bold’s culture is collaboration. I’ve come across very few companies that are as intentional about its employees growing with and learning from each other. Whether it’s lunch and learns or code reviews, co-ops have the opportunity to learn from their peers but can also be the ones to share knowledge and make meaningful contributions.
