Pusher’s realtime APIs power applications around the world across various industries. When you see an in-app chat, a collaborative text editor, or anything else that updates instantly—it could be us shifting events behind the scenes.

Teamwork is very important to us and you will be working closely with the other members of the team and also have a dedicated mentor to guide you through your internship.

  • A chance to work with cutting-edge technologies like Terraform and Kubernetes on AWS, write software in Go and solve real-world problems
  • Working as part of a great team of dedicated Cloud Infrastructure Engineers
  • Insights into how to maintain and improve a scalable software platform
  • We will help develop your coding skills and as well as guide you through the delivery process from peer review to deployment

What working in the Infrastructure Team looks like

  • The infrastructure team has a lot of autonomy. We trust our teams to make well-informed decisions.
  • The platform team supports product teams. We’ve built the platform to improve the product development process.
  • We strongly believe in the value of open source and sharing our work so that we can all work on solving the bigger problems instead of constantly re-inventing the wheel.
  • We use Terraform and Kubernetes, deploy to AWS and GCP and write our code mostly in Go.
  • We are happy to use external services where doing so saves time and increases velocity.

What Pusher is like

We strongly believe in the importance of diversity and inclusion. We welcome people of different nationalities, backgrounds, experiences, abilities and perspectives. It is our belief that this not only provides a better working environment but also improves the quality of the products we produce.
