We are proud to announce our first-ever fully online internship! 👨🏼💻
Leapfrog has been conducting software engineering internship programs 3 times every year where we train aspiring programmers to be software pros over the course of 12 weeks. Leapfrog embraces an open and innovative culture making it the best company for new engineers to grow and learn. With help from strong mentors, you will be immersed in the software world by working on the latest products for big players in the tech industry.
While a lot of things are out of our control during this time, we at Leapfrog want to continue with the internship program that will be conducted through online mediums until it is safe to return to our office.
Leapfrog has always taken pride in being able to work remotely. Since the COVID-19 lockdown started about 2 months ago, all 200+ Leapfroggers have been working from home, and we have learned to do that efficiently.
We have built a strong team of mentors who have been working in this field for a long time, along with our great event recruitment management team, and we are determined to make this online internship initiative a reality.
During the course of 12 weeks, you can expect a lot of online meetings via Zoom, bootcamps, assignments, and projects will also be submitted online, and communications will be done mainly through Slack as well as other mediums.
We’ve put together a list of frequently asked questions we got from our applicants about the internship and answered them all at once!
What are the qualifications and minimum requirements?
To be eligible, you only need to know how to code. Good communication is a big plus point though. Anything else you want to know about this can be found here.
What types of projects will I be working on?
We truly value our interns, and you’ll focus on getting hands-on experience and continuous learning experience through mentorship, mock projects, cross-collaborations, and feedback.
You’ll start from the basics learning the foundation of coding standards to learning full-stack application development with React.js and Node.js, PostgreSQL, etc. You will work with your respective mentors and work on challenging assignments that help you learn each day and prepare for real-time projects.
You’ll get a lot of opportunities to learn, grow, and have a lot of fun and work on your projects from start to finish under the mentorship of experienced Leapfroggers.
How should I apply?

You should be able to commit to 12 weeks of full-time work. The timing will be from 9 am to 6 pm. Saturdays and Sundays are holidays.
You can apply even if you’ve not completed your Bachelor’s degree.
Can the schedule be adjusted if my college starts or if I have exams in the middle of my internship?
No. Our schedule during the internship might not work for some students. We will be slightly flexible and may consider the absence of a short leave during the internship. Given our current situation, we plan to redesign as we learn more.
What other fields can I apply for?
