About Volley

Volley makes voice-controlled games for Amazon Alexa and Google Home.

Our top game, "Song Quiz", a name-that-tune style trivia game, is the #1 game on the Alexa app store. We've created 7 of the 25 top games on Alexa and have over 1,000,000 monthly active users and are growing quickly. We believe that voice-controlled entertainment will expand from smart speakers to the TV and car, and aim to be the leading entertainment company on these new platforms.

We just closed our Series A round and are expanding the team!

We're a small team that enjoys working with each other. We love coming together over team lunches, in-house smash bros tournaments and the occasional karaoke session. If this sounds like fun (we promise it is), get in touch!

About the role

Skills: Node.js, React, Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Volley develops voice-controlled games and entertainment for Amazon Alexa and Google Home.

We're seeking a Software Engineering intern to build and support the backend infrastructure for our games. You will help us design and build proprietary voice-controlled engines and scale our infrastructure from hundreds of thousands to millions of users.

We are open for both Spring '21 and Summer '21 so do get in touch if interested!

We are looking for a conscientious and enthusiastic Node.js / JavaScript engineer who is excited by the idea of working on the frontier of an emerging software paradigm: voice control.

Our software stack includes: -- AWS Lambda (Node.js) -- AWS DynamoDB -- Alexa Skills Kit -- Google Cloud Functions -- Firebase

Most of this is pretty easy to learn. If you're a talented programmer who is interested in working at a fast growing early-stage company, please apply.
